SERVPRO Handles Odors & Water Damage in Pearl River Homes

Combating the smells can be a big challenge during the water damage restoration of your Pearl River home. SERVPRO restorers use a multi-step approach to get your flooded home smelling like home again. 

The first deodorization step during water damage restoration of your Pearl River home is to remove the source of the odor from the property as soon as possible. There can be several sources of smell in a water-damaged home, including-

  • Trash and garbage
  • Moisture
  • Mildew
  • Pet waste
  • Bio-breakdown on materials on surfaces

Most odor problems from water usually occur because the wet materials have not completely dried. SERVPRO techs use dehumidifiers and air movers to accelerate drying to remove some odors. However, some odors that remain might need special deodorization treatments. 

SERVPRO uses multiple methods approach to deodorize after water cleanup 

SERVPRO techs ensure that your Pearl River home is restored, smelling "Like it never even happened." We use several deodorizing agents as a single agent never works for all kinds of odors. 

SERVPRO techs use masking agents to cover bad odors with a pleasant smell. However, some odors can't be masked, and for those, the techs use pairing agents. The chemicals present in the pairing agents can combine with the odor-causing molecules to neutralize them. 

SERVPRO techs also use electrically generated deodorizers like hydroxy generators. A hydroxyl generator uses ultraviolet type C (UV-C) radiation to break apart water vapor molecules, generating very reactive hydroxyl radicals (OH-). The radicals combine with odor-causing molecules, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), to make them odorless.
