Odor Removal Tools Preferred For Fire-Damaged Sevierville Homes

Fire loss incidents that occur in Sevierville homes come with a range of potential effects, and widespread odors can be one of them. Deodorization is one of the many restoration services that our SERVPRO team can offer your fire-damaged property, and we have multiple powerful tools and advanced devices to do it. The choice of which machines get used depends on the type of materials affected and the available space within this damaged region of your house.

Even though our team must help to overcome several effects of fire damage in Sevierville homes beginning as soon as we arrive, deodorization can be an underappreciated threat that makes comfortable living difficult. Even with small flare-ups that do not require your family to relocate, you cannot expect to move on from the traumatic fire loss incident without addressing all of the lingering effects. There are many standard units that our professionals use to address foul and noxious odors in your home after a fire.

Hydroxyl Generators – These units can affect a broad area of your home, making it ideal for open spaces. Through the use of UV radiation reacting with water vapor, these units can both clean and deodorize environments where they get placed.

Thermal Foggers – These are portable units that can move with the technician to address specific problem areas of the house. Through thermal power, a cleaning solution gets vaporized and turned to a dense fog that can neutralize odor molecules on contact.

Ozone Generators – While we also have larger chambers in our SERVPRO facility, these smaller units can address odors by producing ozone that bonds with odor compounds and eliminates them. This process is hazardous to humans and pets, and so the use of this unit is carefully regulated by our team.

The use of these deodorizers can help to address embedded odors within materials, textiles, clothing, and other areas of your house. Even where these smoke effects have permeated walls and other surfaces, our capable devices can help. Whenever you contend with fire losses, trust our SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties team to help. Give us a call anytime at (865) 429-8885.

Advantages of Gas-Powered Pumps for Sevierville Homes

8/21/2019 (Permalink)

Male homeowner trying to stop water from spewing out of the sink, female homeowner on the phone looking discouraged. We want our Sevierville community to know their advantages, don’t do it alone.

SERVPRO will show you the way with your water damage in Sevierville.

Many pieces of equipment have become an integral part of water loss recovery for Sevierville residences, especially regarding extraction and drying. While many homeowners seeking to overcome these incidents can benefit from the state-of-the-art equipment made available to our SERVPRO technicians. Even without this deep inventory of restoration tools, many homeowners can acquire many of the capable machines to begin mitigation work like extraction right away. Among the most powerful of the options for extraction and pumping is a gas-powered pump. 

Engine-driven machines like these trash pumps can help to overcome water removal in Sevierville homes quickly. Apart from extractor trucks you might see in the Green Fleet, these trash pumps are ideal for discharging high volumes of water to drains and areas outside of your house. While you might have multiple options for extraction tools, here are some of the reasons you might opt for a gas-powered unit: 

-    Mobile – While many of the tools that you have to remove water are much lighter and more portable, few lack the strength to discard several inches of standing water efficiently. 

-    Can Get Purchased – Many of the options that have the highest effectiveness in extraction are not available to the general public in home improvement locations. Gas-powered options are often available for purchase to prevent the often costly approach of renting for prolonged periods. 

-    Not Electric – Another perk to choosing a gas-powered option gets seen when power utilities get disconnected amid a crisis. These options do not require electricity, allowing mitigation work to continue despite interruptions in electrical service.  

-    What Our Professionals Use – Gas-powered pumps are part of the recovery arsenal of our SERVPRO technicians, showcasing how efficient and effective these units can be for your property.

One of the most significant obstacles to overcome during mitigation is the extraction that your property might require. Our SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties can help you through this process with a fast and confident response, or we can double-check your efforts to ensure a satisfactory outcome.
