SERVPRO Techs Eliminate Odor During Fire Damage Restoration of Randolph Properties Using Advanced Deodorization Techniques 

Combating odors during fire damage restoration of your Randolph home can be a challenging task. Professional restorers like SERVPRO use specialized equipment and techniques to eliminate even the toughest odors due to smoke damage.

SERVPRO techs begin the deodorization process during fire damage restoration of your Randolph home by analyzing the type and intensity of the odor. While some smells can be easily handled by masking agents, others need stronger deodorizing techniques. Neutralizing odor particles lodged in pores of surfaces are among the toughest to deodorize. SERVPRO techs use thermal foggers to create a fine mist of deodorizing agent that behaves similar to smoke and hence, can neutralize the particles present in the pores. 

How Does an Ozone Generator Work to Deodorize Fire Damaged Homes in Randolph? 

SERVPRO techs use Ozone generators to combat hard-to-neutralize odors, including protein smoke.  

These machines generate ozone (O3) or enriched oxygen gas, a powerful oxidizing agent. Ozone deodorization works best if the odor-causing molecules are organic (contain carbon as their base element). It also destroys the microbial Volatile Organic Compounds (mVOCs) produced by bacteria and other microbes. Once ozone combines with the odor-causing molecule, it decomposes back to oxygen, and hence there are no harmful byproducts formed with this method. 

However, it is important to note that SERVPRO techs would need to evacuate your home of all forms of life before using this method. Ozone is not effective in deodorizing inorganic odors, and it can degrade natural latex rubber.

SERVPRO adheres to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Agency) guidelines while using ozone generators. Our technicians undergo extensive training in the safe use of these generators.
