Removing Odors from Your Livingston, NJ, Home with Storm Damage Cleanup

May 1st, 2019 · No Comments

Storms bring about flooding, which can flush different contaminants into your Livingston, NJ, home. Contaminants can include sewage, debris, vegetation, dead animals, and more, resulting in damage to and/or bad odors in your home. To restore your home, count on the storm damage cleanup professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan. We’ll treat any damage present and remove lingering odors so you can move on with your life.


Odor Removal during Storm Damage Cleanup

There isn’t a single process for odor removal; it all depends on the types of contaminants present due to flooding. Let’s take a look at a few cleanup scenarios.


Water-Based Cleanup

We utilize our technical knowledge and experience to analyze different surfaces in your home. This helps us determine if using a water-based cleaning method will be effective.

If so, we begin cleaning, including scrubbing to get rid of odors that tend to dissolve in water.


Lower Humidity Cleanup

Humidity is common after flooding and can worsen odors. This is especially true for enclosed spaces. To help remove moisture from your home, we lower the humidity. This helps lessen the water damage and causes odors to dissipate.


Thermal Oxidation Cleanup

If there are organic malodors present in your home, then our storm damage cleanup technicians utilize thermal oxidation to solve this problem.

With thermal oxidation, we can achieve complete oxidization of organic compounds by exposing substances to relatively high temperatures. This technique helps in effectively removing odors.


Germicide Cleanup

If there are biological odors present, then we utilize germicides to remove them.

However, if chemical odors are present, germicides won’t be effective, which is why we always perform a thorough inspection before choosing an odor removal method.


Storm damage cleanup is highly complex and requires training and experience to be effective. The storm damage cleanup professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan are here to help restore your home to its pre-loss condition, which includes removing odors. We’re available to help 24/7/365.
