Getting The Smell Out
Odor removal requires a lot of common sense. It’s amazing that professionals still think they can eliminate odors by shampooing or spraying a deodorizer. Nothing is farther from the truth. Many odors are caused by micro-organisms such as bacteria, mold, and mildew. Not only does shampooing not eradicate these odors, it spreads them over a much wider area. You must kill odor-causing organisms with very specialized techniques.
During a fire, heat drives smoke into every accessible opening, so the smoke becomes deeply imbedded in fabrics and other porous items. Smoke odors can be difficult to remove due to its penetration and absorption into building materials. Different surfaces require different treatments, and our technicians are well-trained in what works best. H2O 911 cutting-edge odor-removal techniques include:
- Thermal Fogging smoke-damaged areas
- Ozone Treatment
- HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) air scrubbing treatments
A thermal fogger is appropriately named since it is a device that uses heat to produce a fog without degrading the active ingredient. A thermal fogger produces a range of droplet sizes including a large number of very small droplets. This makes a thermal fogger the preferred type of equipment to reach air spaces in areas highly obstructed by vegetation, or other physical obstructions in buildings. The large number of very small droplets produced in thermally generated fog also makes the fog hightly visible. This can help the operator to monitor the fog and ensure thoroughness of application.
H2O 911 service technicians have the knowledge, products and equipment to permanently remove these strong odors.
For odor removal, H2O 911 has locations in Fort Myers and Naples and serves Port Charlotte, Bonita Springs, Lehigh Acres, and the surrounding areas.
