Flood Damage can Leave Behind Unwanted Smells in West Monroe Properties

5/7/2018 (Permalink)

Even if flooding comes from an inside source like a loose water hose on your washer, your best bet is to contact SERVPRO to dry out your home.

Team SERVPRO Understands that Dealing With Flooding Often Includes Remediating Odors That are Left Behind

Flooding happens a great deal over the Spring months but any time of the year can also see this happen to homeowners in the West Monroe area. Flooding can keep homeowners from living in their properties because of the health risks caused by the water.
When a home dries out, and the majority of flood damage in West Monroe no longer poses a problem, smells can remain. These odors can come from moisture that damaged materials after the restoration work concluded, or from debris that remained undetected and hence, unremoved.
SERVPRO's technicians can help you and your family rid your home of these persistent smells with the use of different meter readers. Moisture helps odors dissipate into the air from wherever their source comes. This might include debris that washed in and now slowly decomposes. We can remove this and deodorize the area.
We use different types of deodorization techniques and methods, depending on the exact circumstances. At times, a combination of two or more works best because of the nature of the materials producing odor. When materials leach odors out from flood damage, gel packs placed inside the area affected can solve the problem. When silt filled with biological matter from nearby streams causes the problem, chemical-based agents can provide more thorough relief instead.
When flooding lasted a short time and came from relatively clean water sources, perhaps a misplaced hose from the backyard or another type of overflow, carpets can still stay smelly, even if properly cleaned. Injections of deodorizing scents can help make matters much more pleasant in your home. Our goal stays the same, no matter what type of flood damage your home sustains - bring it back to preloss condition so your family can return home "Like it never even happened" and resume your normal lives.
