Tahoe's Flood Damage Specialists
Flood Damage Specialists
When big storms come into your neighborhood, it is always a possibility that your Tahoe townhome gets damaged. Excessive rain sometimes causes flooding. Any time there is enough water to flood an area, it is likely that water makes its way into your structure.
When mitigating any water damage situation, there are many steps involved. It is a wise call to make to SERVPRO's flood damage crew in Tahoe to mitigate your problem. One of the most important steps to completing the job is the last cleaning and deodorization stage.
After all of the water is extracted from the flood damage and the area is dry, deodorization occurs. Having a clean smell is one of the most critical pieces of having an overall decent job. SERVPRO often pleases their customers by completing the project and leaving the area with a pleasant smell. When water is inside a building humidity goes up, and foul odors are more prevalent.
The deodorization step gets carried out via a variety of methods. One way odors get removed is an injection method. Some deodorants get injected into carpet and upholstery. Other deodorants get sprayed directly onto a surface with powered or pump sprayers. This technique gets used when applying disinfectants and anti-microbial chemicals.
Sometimes deodorizers get applied with wet foggers. These ultra-low volume foggers generate tiny deodorant particles that make their way into materials that hold foul smells. In some cases, dry thermal foggers that heat up and vaporize the deodorant get used but mostly only in cases of smoke damage.
When deodorizing your structure ventilation is essential. Large venting box fans often get used before and after the deodorization process. In some cases, air scrubbers with HEPA filters get used to fighting unpleasant odors. Air scrubbers use negative air pressure to suck air into a screen that catches particles causing awful smells.
If you ever have weather-related water damage, it is vital to call in the professionals to ensure the deodorization process gets completed correctly. Whenever you notice rainwater entering your home, call SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe at (775) 588-2355, for 24/7 assistance.
