SERVPRO Says to Mount Kisco Homeowners--Call Us for Fire Damage Restoration and Odor Control

Why Several Deodorizers Exist for Fire-Damaged Mount Kisco Homes

There are multiple tools, products, and machines that are vital in the professional recovery of fire loss incidents to Mount Kisco homes. As challenging as these instances can be to overcome even with this advanced equipment, many homeowners seeking to do this alone do not have the same access to these modern machines. Some mid-grade options exist in home improvement locations for rent or purchase, but without purchasing an entire inventory of restoration tools yourself, how do you know what items you need for fire loss recovery?

One of the biggest challenges to overcome regarding fire damage in Mount Kisco homes is lingering odors and smoke. Deodorization equipment can often eliminate these threats permanently, but there are several units that you can choose from – even with the limited stock available in hardware stores. There are reasons that there are varying types, and why all of these options arrive with our SERVPRO professionals when we reach a fire-damaged property.

Primarily, our SERVPRO team utilizes several options in most fire loss incidents, including thermal and UV foggers, hydroxyl generators, and even ozone machines. Each of these units has distinct advantages, primarily in either the range of their effectiveness or in the items that they can most efficiently and thoroughly deodorize. Thermal foggers, for example, can easily permeate soft materials like clothing, upholstery, and carpets to break apart harsh odor compounds embedded in them.

There are disadvantages to specific choices as well, and these are things that you need to know before these units get rented or purchased. Ozone generators are highly capable machines that can make short work of odors in contents and open areas of your damaged home, but the creation of ozone to neutralize these molecules is hazardous and even fatal to humans and pets directly exposed. These units must get run while no other work is getting completed. SERVPRO strongly suggests not to introduce O3 ozone molecules into your home. Leave the heavy lifting to us, done right and safely.

We strive to give our customers the information that can help them to make the best decisions for their property in a time of crisis. While our SERVPRO of Northern Westchester County team is always here to help you make fire loss “Like it never even happened.” we are also here to help with any questions you might have. Give us a call today at (914) 241-8100.
