Does Your Place Smell After Flood Damage?
SERVPRO Can Help Deodorize Your Augusta Home
Strong odors can develop after a flooding incident for various reasons. The most common reason is floodwaters depositing odorous materials inside your home. The water usually contains various wastes, including chemicals and biohazards such as raw sewage, which emit bad smells.
Although the cleaning done as part of flood damage restoration in your Augusta home may remove the waste materials, in most cases, it does not address the underlying odor issues. Deodorization helps address such issues.
Deodorization usually takes several steps since odors may originate from different sources. Some odors are also stubborn, and one method is not likely to eliminate them. SERVPRO technicians rely on their training and vast experience to remove odors, including:
- Adding water-based odor counteractants into cleaning solutions to neutralize odors during cleaning
- Spraying deodorizing agents in areas suspected to be the source of malodors
- Running air scrubbers or air filtration devices that have HEPA filters that capture particles as small as 0.3microns thus collecting odor molecules
