Hydroxyl Generating Machines Help Complete Water Damage Restoration Work in Randolph by Eliminating Odors
After our building services crew (working under General Contractor License # 13VH06013000) repairs a leak in your plumbing and our restoration team gets your home dried out and back to normal, you might notice new and unpleasant odors inside your Randolph home. Many residents assume we use an ozone generator for such situations, but we have an option that provides numerous benefits we cannot get with ozone.
Attacking the odors affecting your property in Randolph after finishing water damage mitigation and restoration becomes more effective with a hydroxyl generator. Part of the reason we choose to turn on our hydroxyl generators is that ozone can cause additional damage in many homes. Living things cannot survive in an environment flooded with high concentrations of ozone. Even fish in an aquarium can die if their tank's aeration system carries ozone into their container. Plants can also die when ozone competes for the carbon dioxide in the air.
Many other items can sustain damage from exposure to ozone. Items made out of rubber, many types of glue, and other substances might need additional restorative work if we were to use ozone. Instead of risking the condition of your home, we instead use a hydroxyl generator to perform deodorization.
Hydroxyl generators separate water vapor molecules (H2O) into single atoms of hydrogen and hydroxyl radicals (*OH). Once in the air, these actively break substances down into harmless pieces that cannot produce odor. Because we can run our machinery even while we continue working, the extra amount of time that it takes for adequate treatment of odors does not affect our schedule.
Because odors have been attacked from the start, the deodorization process ends up being more effective in the long run. This increased effectiveness occurs because hydroxyl radicals have had the opportunity to eat away at odor-causing molecules inside walls, under floated carpets, and other locations where odors come from before we finish mitigating water damage and restore these places.
When odor-causing substances remain after water damage mitigation, days of higher humidity can let these odors return. Using our hydroxyl generators instead of ozone machines prevents this from bothering your family in the future while protecting your belongings from the harm ozone can cause.
