How SERVPRO Restores Your Cocoa Home after a Fire Damage Incident?

Restorative cleaning after fire damage to your Cocoa property is a job for the professionals. A restorer has a tough job of removing the fire and smoke damage and returning the structure to a preloss condition.   

There are several different types of deodorizing equipment that SERVPRO techs use to restore fire damage to your Cocoa properties. The importance of using professional deodorizing equipment as soon as possible can’t be emphasized enough. Not only does this prevent new odors from developing, but it also prevents you and your family from entering a hazardous environment during the post-fire restoration process.

Why do SERVPRO Techs use Active Oxygen Deodorization During House Fire Cleanup of Your Cocoa Home? 

Passive methods, such as ventilation and fans, merely remove the odor-causing particles from your Cocoa home and send them back into the air. Hence, SERVPRO techs use active deodorization methods that render the odor-causing molecules inactive. 

An ozone generator is one of the most commonly used equipment that actively neutralizes odor-causing molecules. However, there is a safety concern regarding ozone gas. Hence, SERVPRO technicians prefer hydroxyl radical generators in place of ozone generators when the premises are occupied.

Hydroxyl radical generators produce highly reactive hydroxyl (OH-) radicals that cause a ‘cascade effect’ that makes unstable compounds when hydroxyl radicals react with odor-causing molecules in the air. The effect continues till all the odor molecules are broken down into simple molecules that no longer produce odor. 

Another advantage of hydroxyl radicals in fire damage restoration is that they do not reach surfaces and damage them like ozone. Hence, SERVPRO techs can use this equipment even in occupied areas with proper monitoring.
