Eliminating Smoke Odors After a Fire
Keep the Fresh-Baked Aromas without the Odors--Call SERVPRO
Fire damage is devastating for any business, but if it occurs in your bakery, the odor alone can be a huge problem. The smell of burnt wood and plastic can linger on in your establishment, and if it is not promptly and efficiently removed, it can cause havoc. Not only do you stand a chance to lose a ton of business during the restoration process, but you also might have to deal with customer dissatisfaction if the odor is not eliminated.
Thankfully, SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh can help you combat the odors after the fire. We can use some of the latest odor eliminating equipment and a proven strategy to combat odors in the least possible time. Here are a few examples of odor eliminating equipment that we can use.
One of the essentials when it comes to odor management after fire damage, the pressure sprayer is a small hand-held tool used to dispense deodorants. These are used to deodorize the surfaces that are easy to reach. Since direct spraying can wet the surfaces, this instrument is usually not used where discoloration is likely. It is an excellent technique for a bakery where there are a lot of table-tops and counters that need to be deodorized.
As the name suggests, this machine generates ozone gas, an unstable form of oxygen --O3--that can eliminate the odor-causing molecules. Ozone combines chemically with many odor-causing molecules thereby changing their chemical composition. Once they are ‘oxidized' by ozone, the molecules lose their odor. As ozone is not suitable for breathing, all people, animals, and pets must be evacuated from the premises while doing this treatment. The ozone typically dissipates within an hour of usage.
An air scrubber is a piece of equipment that physically eliminates odor-causing particles from the air. It works on the principle of HEPA filtration and can trap odor-causing particles as small as 0.3 microns. There is also a series of activated charcoal and potassium permanganate filters that also eliminate odors.
