Cleaning Deodorization – Getting Rid of Unpleasant Odors After your home has gone through the worst, do you want it to smell the worst? Call SERVPRO today for deodorization of your home!

Life is full of unpleasant smells. Odors from smoke, pets, decomposition or mold can cause lingering odors in your home or business. A simple surface clean doesn’t necessarily get rid of these smells.

With technicians certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC), SERVPRO of East Fort Worth provides specialized services that can rid your home or business of offensive odors left by smoke, mold or other sources. Our professionals do not cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; they seek out and remove the sources of the odor. Once the source is found, we use SERVPRO’s own proprietary line of cleaning products to treat and prevent the odor from returning. Any restorable item in affected areas will also be professionally cleaned and deodorized, including furniture, draperies and upholstery, electronics, art, flooring, walls, ceilings, HVAC air ducts, and more.

Along with our proprietary line of cleaning products we use various techniques and equipment to treat odors. These techniques are capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly. Some of the tools we use include:

Ozone Generator: The Ozone Generator (shown above) is one of the quickest ways to eliminate odors from a home or office. We use the Ozone Generator to oxidize odor and eliminate odors from mold, mildew, pets, nicotine, smoke and more without the use of chemicals. Though the room being treated cannot be occupied while in use, the generator works quickly to clean, sanitize and remove offensive odors.

Hydroxyl Generator: The Hydroxyl Generator has several benefits that the Ozone Generator does not. The main benefit is that the room being treated can be occupied during the deodorization process; though it does work slower. The Hydroxyl Generator can be used to treat fire and smoke, as well as biohazard jobs, water damage, crime scene situations and animal odors.

Air Filtration Device: This piece of equipment, also known as an air scrubber, is used to remove airborne contaminants during water, fire, smoke, mold and sewage restoration work. These work by pulling air through HEPA filtration to remove airborne particles from the air. This helps clean the air and remove odors.

Whether you are a building manager who needs an apartment cleaned for the next tenant or homeowner who wants to get your home ready for sale, getting rid of offensive odors is a high priority.

Whether it’s fire, water, or mold damage, or just a stubborn odor that refuses to go away, SERVPRO of East fort Worth is here to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at 817-293-5553.

Breathe Easy This Spring: Why You Should Clean Your HVAC System

Cleaning Breathe Easy This Spring: Why You Should Clean Your HVAC System Remember to replace the filter on your HVAC unit at least every 90 days to prolong its life and increase its efficiency

Spring is finally here, and it’s time to open up those windows and let in some fresh air. As you embark on cleaning your home this spring, don’t forget about your HVAC system.

According to the EPA, pollutant levels inside can be two to five times higher than outdoors. The ventilation system is often the largest contributor to poor indoor air quality. Many systems go a long time before being inspected and cleaned. Your dirty vents might be circulating odors, mold and irritating dust throughout your home.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that contaminants or foreign objects such as rodents, insects, dust, dirt, debris, bacteria, mold and pollen can enter and collect in your air ducts. These may harm the indoor air quality of your home or cause other damages to your HVAC system.

Cleaning your HVAC system is no easy task, and we can help. SERVPRO of East Fort Worth offers heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) inspections and cleaning. Especially after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning is essential to improve the air quality in your home.

Why Pick SERVPRO of East Fort Worth?

Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, we use a Portable Ventilation & Air Duct Cleaning System to examine ductwork and sweep clean years of dust and grime.

This system allows us to:

  • Remediate Bacteria, Fungi and Mold
  • Reduce Potential for Mold Growth
  • Restore Peak Energy Efficiency
  • Eliminate Offensive Odors
  • Provide Free Written Inspections and Estimates

Our Duct Cleaning Process works like this:

  • First, we use patented equipment, such as the roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct’s shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

Keeping your HVAC system and ductwork clean is key in ensuring good air quality in your home. Protect your family from polluted air this spring and set up an inspection today.
