What to do When Water Damage Strikes and Causes Odors in Downtown Knoxville
SERVPRO Offers Equipment and Methodologies for Controlling Offensive Scents
Water damage invading and settling into your home is trouble all on its own, but when it brings smells along, it gets even worse. Downtown Knoxville is known for its high humidity, and that humidity can cause damage to the structure of your home if left unchecked. Along with that damage can come unpleasant smells, such as mustiness. One of the first indicators that there might be water damage in your home is the detection of an odor. Luckily, help is never far when this particular situation strikes.
Here at SERVPRO, our technicians are trained to do more than just dry your structure in Downtown Knoxville when water damage becomes a problem. We are also skilled in removing unpleasant odors that come hand-in-hand with water damage. Most often these scents have a source of one kind or another. However, if the smell is musty, it is often an indicator of mold. In fact, the high humidity that comes in the area is a perfect breeding ground for mold, as it brings constant moisture into your home.
SERVPRO can inspect for mold and rid your home of the odor attached to it. We can also dry out all the areas that are a problem and get them back to a level of dryness that is acceptable. We often choose to implement the multiple methods approach to combat the odors, which means using more than one. One such method is employing thermal fogging to neutralize odor-causing compounds. Another option is to use air scrubbers with HEPA filtration to capture airborne particles and mold spores. It can be these airborne particles that cause the foul odors attached to water damage and using this technique can leave your home odor free. Afterward, we can completely dry out everything in your home and make you feel "Like it never even happened."
