Olathe SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians Have the Tools to Eliminate Flood Damage Smells

Storms and floodwater leave behind innumerable damages in their wake. One in five flood events happen outside of a high-risk flood zone, and 98% of US counties have been impacted by flooding. Even when Olathe homeowners are prepared for potential flood damage, the effects–including unpleasant odors from debris and microbes–can be difficult to remove without professional assistance.

SERVPRO technicians can remediate storm and flood damage affecting Olathe homes 24/7, including weekends and holidays. Flood response can begin in as little as several hours after a homeowner’s initial contact.

SERVPRO Flood Damage Odor Control with Industrial-Grade Deodorizers

While several products, such as EPA-registered biocides and HEPA-filter vacuums aid in odor control, Olathe SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians (OCTs) also utilize deodorizer units to address widespread flood damage malodors in a home.

Ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, which are frequently deployed for storm and flood odor control, work as follows:

  • The fogger is used to dispense water or solvent-based deodorizing agents, which generate microscopic deodorant particles
  • Deodorizer particles penetrate odor-affected surfaces
  • Deodorizer molecules combine with and eliminate odor-causing particles

Technicians use commercial-grade drop cloths to protect furnishings from potential secondary moisture damage during wet fogging.

SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley can be reached at (913) 782-4693 to provide cleanup services that can make a home look and feel, “Like it never even happened.”
