SERVPRO technicians use ozone and thermal fogging to rid your home of the unwanted odors and chemicals left behind by fire damage.

SERVPRO Offers Professional Deodorization after Fire Damage in Your Home

There are many challenges which result from a fire damage incident that many homeowners in Miramar Beach find disturbing. For instance, during such a time the air is filled with many irritants. One of the surest ways of restoring the situation is by deodorizing. But how are you going to conduct such a technique when you do not have the right tools and the knowledge?

Residents of Miramar Beach should not worry past that point since companies like SERVPRO have trained and certified professionals in fire damage restoration. Let us begin by understanding the two kinds of deodorization - ozone and thermal fogging.

Deodorizing using ozone needs much care since it is a poisonous gas. According to OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), the PEL (permissible exposure level) of ozone stands at 0.1 ppm (parts per million). Despite that, we cannot underestimate its effectiveness as a deodorant. That is why the trained personnel use protective gear such as NIOSH-approved respirators, organic vapor cartridges, chemical resistant gloves and goggles when dealing with the gas.

On the other hand, solvent-based deodorants are emitted by a fogging device when carrying out thermal fogging. With the help of heat and combustion, the deodorants are broken down into small particles. Since the deodorizing products used by this technique are highly flammable, all pilot lights in the working area are extinguished. To prevent irritation, we ensure pets and people do not get into contact with the fog.

When either of the two deodorizing techniques is performed, ventilating the treated areas is encouraged. When windows and doors are not sufficient, you will service providers such as SERVPRO setting up high-velocity fans and air movers to thoroughly turn over the air in the area. For cases where ozone was used, air should be left to circulate for about 15 – 45 minutes.

At SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties we understand that fire damage issues are emergencies which need much seriousness. Call us at (850) 267-0746 for unrivaled services.
