Bad smells are not only offensive to the senses, masking them may temporarily cover up a bigger problem.
Treating odors with air fresheners, deodorizers and store-bought cleaners briefly hide bad smells caused by pets, smoking, mold, bacteria and mildew.
Smoke from fire damage is readily absorbed into building materials, fabrics and porous surfaces. This makes smoke odors particularly difficult to remove.
Regardless of the source, short term solutions for odor removal don’t last and do nothing to treat the underlying cause. Shampooing can even distribute mold-causing microorganisms over a much wider area.
Three Specialized Odor Removal Treatments
Effective Odor Removal Requires Specialized Treatments for Different Surfaces
iMold’s expert technicians are well trained in determining the best method for a particular surface and cause. Our technicians use three highly effective state-of-the-art odor removal techniques including thermal fogging, ozone and HEPA filtration air scrubbing.
Thermal Fogging for Smoke Damage
A thermal fogger disperses a fog using heat but without rendering the active ingredient less effective.
The droplet size of the fog can be adjusted from large to very small for reaching even highly obstructed air spaces.
The fog disperses a large number of droplets and is easy to see. Visibility of the fog facilitates a thorough application by the technician.
Ozone Odor Removal and Purification
Ozone is a colorless, odorless gas that has numerous applications including removing odors from mold, pets, tobacco and fire-related smoke damage.
Ozone can be very helpful in reducing bacteria and other microorganisms due to mold contamination.
At iMold, our experienced technicians may use ozone after thorough cleaning of soiled soft surfaces and carpet.
HEPA Filtration Air Scrubbing
HEPA filters capture airborne particles, spores and odors.
HEPA filtration treatments are an essential and final stage part of disaster restoration and mold remediation.
During remediation, high speed air movers are used to dry wet floors, carpets, furnishings and other surfaces. Drying treatments can release and disperse mold, fungal spores, and odors.
Renovations produce dust from millwork, drywall and concrete. Commercial grade HEPA filtration air scrubbers capture and effectively eliminate these particles, purifying the treated areas and leaving the environment odor-free
