SERVPRO Hydroxyl Generator Being Used Lingering Odors? Call SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County!

The smell of something unpleasant, rotten, or off putting can cause a host of issues for property owners and business leaders.  From making your home uncomfortable to be in, to driving potential customers away from your business, odor issues can be quite a problem.   Along with our more well-known service lines, SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County offers a solution to your odor issues: ODOR REMEDIATION and DEODORIZATION.  Utilizing industry leading equipment and consumables, our team has the ability to tackle odors caused by a variety of sources, including:

  • Water Damages
  • Microbial Growth
  • Smoke Damages from Structure Fires
  • Cigarette/Cigar Smoke
  • Hoarding Scenes
  • Storm Damages

Along with the use of thermal foggers, deodorization agents, and air scrubbers, SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County employs two different machines for deodorization, each with its own unique features and functions:

Hydroxyl Generator

A hydroxyl generator works by dismantling the molecular structure of an odor particle.  Hydroxyl generators are accepted as safe to use in occupied spaces, do not cause damage to any of the contents of the structure, and are highly reactive, breaking down a very broad range of odors.

Ozone Machine

An ozone machine also works on a molecular level, splitting oxygen molecules in the air into single atoms.  Unlike a hydroxy generator, an ozone machine cannot be run in an occupied space, as it reduces the amount of breathable oxygen available.  This process deals with odors more quickly than a hydroxyl, but also runs the risk of damaging sensitive materials within a structure.

When it comes to deodorization, trust the local professionals at SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County to help.  We have the training, experience, and expertise to effectively remediate odors, utilizing the proper combination of techniques and equipment, and we will work to make your issue “Like it never even happened.”  Interested in learning more?  Give us a call, 850-466-3089, We’re Here to Help!
