One of the most unpleasant after effects of water, smoke or fire damage is the offensive odor that can linger long after the original emergency event. Odor removal is an important part of Westfair Restoration Services. Inc, treatment package and is performed by technicians thoroughly trained in the latest state-of-the-art techniques. We fully understand odors and the proper ways to remove them. We use environment-friendly methods to rid your home or business from offensive odors for good!
The goal of any odor removal operation is not simply to “mask” the odor but to effectively neutralize it at its source. Westfair uses a combination of methods to achieve this.
Wet-Fogging Methods: These methods are particularly effective when smoke odor is light and/or the service is performed immediately after the fire is extinguished. We can use an atomized deodorant which easily reaches into even the smallest openings where odors are trapped.
Professional services are critical for this type of method because a damaging residue may result with improper application.
Dry-Fogging Methods: The dry-fogging method is preferred in most situations that can be effectively treated by fogging because there is no damaging residue and the deodorizer circulates more freely than with wet-fogging method.
Crystals: Odor-absorbing crystals are placed in air handling systems or dead air spaces once cleaning has been completed. A pleasant aroma replaces any lingering odors.
Hydroxyl Generators: Hydroxyls are naturally occurring ions, which are created in our atmosphere when the sun UV rays react with water vapor in the air. Once the hydroxyls are created, they are sent to “seek and destroy” odor molecules, bacteria, viruses, mold, VOCs and other chemicals. The hydroxyls simultaneously decontaminate the air, surfaces and objects.
