Why SERVPRO Offers Odor Control Measures when Mitigating Water Damage in Your South Everett Residence 

After a home or its contents get wet, residents in South Everett begin noticing new odors. These unpleasant smells can come from many sources. Our professional mitigation team can help determine their source and then eliminate their source. These odors can continue to waft through your home, which is why SERVPRO often performs at least one type of odor control method. 

Mitigating your home's interior with widespread water damage in South Everett requires equipment that helps us zoom in on the areas where we need to work. Knowing where dry areas exist helps us tailor our efforts to precisely what your house needs. It also helps us locate the sources behind related odors. 

While fogging machines work well for fire-related odors, we also need to concentrate on smaller, isolated areas. The carpeting below a window where an air conditioner unit leaked last summer can still emanate odors, even after the floor dries out. Drywall can seem fine on the outside, but the interior might bubble, causing the paper backing to split open. Either of these or several other kinds of water damage can create odors in your house. 

With otherwise undamaged carpeting, we can inject deodorizing oils directly into the carpet's pad, which gives off a much more pleasant scent that lasts a long time and poses no risks to young children or pets. The enclosed interiors like the inside of walls or under cabinets, as well as large pieces of furniture, quit giving off malodors when we place a slow-release gel pack inside. Stronger odors in attics or crawlspaces often produce odors from widely spread locations. Using activated charcoal in a safe container can reduce these odors and make other methods more effective. 

SERVPRO of South Everett also provides water damage mitigation services in Mukilteo, Paine Field, and Evergreen. Call (425) 367-4484 for comprehensive services that cover everything needed to make it "Like it never even happened."
