Make sure that your employees have a good smell to return to after water damage in your office. Contact SERVPRO for thorough remediation efforts.

Professional SERVPRO Technicians Remediate ALL Aspects of Water Damage at Your Office or Other Type of Facility

A water damage incident on your commercial property, whether it is a warehouse, a building or an office can cause significant damage if not properly handled. One of the biggest problems in the aftermath of such damage is the problem of odor.

If your commercial Los Alamitos property has recently suffered from commercial water damage, chances are, it needs deodorization treatment. Thankfully, there are a variety of methods at a professional's disposal to tackle the problem of odor.

Injection methods
It is a method that works the best if lifting up the carpet from an office or a similar commercial enterprise is not possible. In this method, small amounts of deodorants are injected directly into the spots on carpet or upholstery with a needle and a syringe. SERVPRO professionals use some of the most potent odor masking deodorants while employing this method.

Direct spraying
As the name suggests, direct spraying involves spraying deodorant directly onto the affected area. This method is also often used to apply disinfectants after water damage as well.

Wet fogging
SERVPRO technicians use Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers to dispense tiny microscopic particles of a deodorant. These foggers can be used to dispense water-based as well as solvent-based deodorizing agents. As the particles dispensed by foggers are small, they can penetrate deeper into the pores of various surfaces and neutralize odor-causing particles.

Dry fogging (Thermal fogging)
Thermal fogging involves breaking down the deodorant into smaller particles using heat. Only solvent-based deodorants are used during the thermal fogging. As the deodorant particles are broken down by the application of heat, the dry fog can penetrate deeper than the wet fog.

Air scrubbers
Air scrubbers remove the airborne odor-causing particles and neutralize them. The device draws air in through a series of filters that filter off most odor-causing particles from the air. HEPA filters used in this equipment can eliminate 99.97% of odor-causing particles that are as small as 0.3 microns in size.
