Water Damage How Experts Fix Bad Odors during Water Removal in Dallas SERVPRO Freshens Up Your Dallas Home during a Water Damage Service

SERVPRO Can Provide Odor Control Along with Water Removal Services

Flooded properties or those affected by excessive moisture undergo several restoration steps to return to their original state. In addition to the initial water removal and drying, other processes might be necessary to ensure a habitable environment. Combating smells fall under this category of additional remedial procedures. Eliminating odors after flooding is not always easy, but an expert can help take care of the problem.
 
The expert you choose to restore the effects of water damage in Dallas is better placed to understand why there is a bad odor after your property has been cleaned and dried. Sewage, dead animals, pet waste and trash, can all cause pungent smells. When water floods your property, it can collect any such material present and deposit it in hard-to-reach spaces where it is easy to miss in a casual cleanup. However, most water damage is the result of interior issues with appliances or leaky plumbing. When our SERVPRO technicians handle the cleanup, they rely on their extensive working experience and training to identify such problematic areas.
 
Our technicians at SERVPRO are trained to use different deodorization procedures to ensure your property regains its natural odors. For example, before identifying the source of the bad smell, the technician can use a masking agent with a pleasant smell. This helps keep your property habitable until the problem is resolved. Tools like Thermal Foggers can also be used to release a dense fog of solvent-based deodorizers into confined spaces. The deodorant particles pair with the odor causing particles neutralizing them.

In case mold or mildew is detected, our technician can use a disinfectant and sanitizer. It is a challenge to eliminate such growth even when hidden inside wall cavities by use of specialized equipment such as Ultra Low Foggers, which inject the antifungal agent directly to the affected area. Depending on the severity of the situation, other equipment like Hydroxyl generators and Ozone machines can also be used. However, the latter might only be applicable when the property is vacant. Waterborne odors have many sources; the best remedy is to extract the water, dry the residual moisture to standard interior levels, and then start with the "nose test."
