Do You Have An Odor You Can't Get Rid Of?

12/27/2018 (Permalink)

Do you have an odor from smoke damage or something else in your home? Here at SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties we have equipment to help eliminate that smell. Our ozone generator that generates ozone. Also, we have a hydroxyl generator which is an alternative method for the deodorization process.

The ozone generator is a machine that creates ozone by adding an extra oxygen molecule to the stable breathable oxygen. This creates a less stable compound known as ozone. This gas isn’t something that you should be breathing. If we must use this solution for your odor the home must be unoccupied. This process usually takes 24 hours to do its job. After the ozone has had its time to work its magic we completely air out the structure before it can be occupied again.

The hydroxyl generator is a safer alternative method we use when the structure can’t be emptied of all residents. This method uses UV light to create a hydroxyl radical that reacts with the pollutants and destroys them. This method isn’t as fast as the ozone generator and usually take 4 to 5 days to get the job done.

After SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties has removed the source of the odor, we utilize both extremely powerful methods to aid in the deodorization process to get your home back to a pleasant smell.
