Fire Damage Restoration in Olathe is Quick and Safe With SERVPRO
Why do SERVPRO Techs Use Air Purification During Fire Damage Restoration in Olathe?
Air purification is the process of removing odors from the indoor air during fire damage restoration of your Olathe home. It is one of the safest methods to combat odors due to fire and smoke damage.
SERVPRO techs use the following equipment during fire damage restoration of your Olathe home to purify the air:
- Air scrubbers: A piece of deodorizing equipment that pulls air through charcoal filters capturing odors and recirculating the air into the indoor environment. SERVPRO techs use this equipment to combat odors that have not penetrated surfaces.
- Ventilation fans: Restorers use these fans to exchange indoor and outdoor air, exhausting the indoor air outside and drawing fresh air indoors from outside.
Why do house fire cleanups in Olathe situations require a stronger deodorizing strategy?
While air purification effectively deals with light odors, it is not ideal in all situations. Odor particles are very small, ranging between 0.1 to 4 microns in size. Consequently, they can penetrate the porous surfaces of your Olathe homes easily.
SERVPRO restorers need to use more robust deodorizing strategies using chemical deodorants that can combine with and neutralize the particles to combat such odors. The techs often need to recreate the conditions of odor penetration in such situations.
How Do Deodorants Neutralize Odor-Causing Particles?
Deodorant molecules combine chemically with odor-causing particles and alter their chemical nature. Many deodorants oxidize the odor molecules or break them down, rendering them odorless. SERVPRO techs use wet fogging and thermal fogging to create a mist of deodorant particles that can reach the pores and neutralize the odor molecules.
