Water Damage Deodorization Services in Bristol
Technicians at SERVPRO Act Quickly to Minimize Persistent Odors
A few months ago, at 8:00 am on a Sunday morning, a catastrophic landslide moved a few thousand tons of earth in a small town, dislocating numerous people in the process. Some of the families had young children. The incidence surged rivers and caused an avalanche of floods, sending mud and debris across the city. The water affected power cables and damaged houses along the way.
Natural disasters like these are unavoidable and can cause severe damage to your property. If it happens, you need a capable restoration company like SERVPRO to deal with the water damage in your Bristol home. Fortunately, we are locally based and can respond to your water emergency in no time.
One of the most agitating hangovers of water damage is bad odors. Odor can occur from multiple sources such as mildew, moisture, sewage, and dead animals. Getting rid of the smell requires finding and eliminating the source.
To accomplish this, a vast amount of knowledge and technical equipment come into use. SERVPRO technicians are adept at solving odor problems in many deodorization situations. We use multiple methods to reverse the damage and clear the space of bad smells. Do not use DIY products or chemical solutions from subcontractors to mask the odors, as the smells are highly likely to return when the structure returns to its normal condition.
Using a combination of products and techniques is necessary to get rid of different odors that may have accumulated on a particular surface or material. We understand that the new odor may turn out to be as offensive as the old one. So in most cases, the choice of the deodorization product depends on you.
Our water damage specialists may inject small amounts of deodorant into spots on carpets or furnishings using a needle and syringe or an injection needle and pump. This method comes in handy in situations where lifting the carpet is impractical. If discoloration is not an issue, we may use direct spraying to pump disinfectants on the affected area.
Safety is essential when removing bad odors in water damage situations. Everyone should be evacuated to avoid contamination. Our specialists use personal safety equipment and eye protection gear during this process.
Water disasters can leave an awful scent in your house, even long after water damage restoration. SERVPRO of Abingdon / Bristol / Marion can respond quickly to your emergency with the necessary deodorization procedures. Call us anytime at (276) 525-1910.
