Water Damage can Cause Odor Problems in Your Bremerton Home

Even though the first step to controlling odors related to water-soaked belongings and materials inside your Bremerton home is getting everything dried out, odors can persist after. This is because the particles causing the odors continue to inundate the air. SERVPRO‘s technicians address odors separately, using different odor control methods to make your residence smell like it should again.

We use three main fogging applications can help control odors in Bremerton homes that water damage created. Depending on the unique situation within your home, we might use dry fogging, wet fogging, or gas-producing equipment. We also use other methods for isolated areas, allowing us to eradicate more thoroughly odors wherever they originate.

Dry fogging uses heat, and is often called thermal fogging. We often choose this method when other odor-causing situations exist, especially smoke. This method works well for places where odors come from enclosed locations because the fog can seep in through the same tiny openings that odor-causing particles escape.

We must use great care when using wet fogging, as a too-heavy application can cause water damage in isolated areas. We often use drop cloths to protect areas that we know do not contain odor-producing substances. The benefit of using this is that the deodorizing agents used can get into materials containing smelly substances and neutralize them.

Two different gas-producing deodorizing techniques exist. We often rely on ozone when water damage is absent. Ozone can damage many materials if wet, including living things. This includes your pets and any plants. Removing all of these can be a hassle. Instead, we can use hydroxyl gas, which our machine makes using hydrogen peroxide. Our mitigation team, building crew, and other employees can continue working on restoring your home with this machine in place. 

Isolated areas can range in size and when they require additional help, we can apply powerful topical especially after a water damage incident. We can inject deodorizing liquid in carpet where pet odors increased during the water damage incident. In rare situations, we might use direct spraying of deodorizer combined with disinfectant agents.
