Commercial Fire Damage Experts In Pensacola Describe How An Ozone Generator Works
Let us help you with your commercial fire odor damage in Pensacola.
Even though it is not really common, it is still possible that something can burn inside your Pensacola clothing store or in a unit next to it. Even the smallest blazes can cause your place of business to suffer from commercial fire damage. Any time an inferno ignites, the partially combusted particles get released into the atmosphere in the form of smoke. Smoke can penetrate deep into porous materials and cause odor problems.
If something burns in a unit next to yours, smoke can still cause your clothing store problems. Whenever we mitigate any commercial fire damage project in Pensacola, our SERVPRO technicians thoroughly inspect your building for potential issues. When smoke travels through a structure, it often leaves behind soils and soot residues.
However, after all of the burnt items and soot residues and soils have been removed, sometimes foul odors can still exist. In these cases, our SERVPRO technicians can take further steps to deodorize your building. In some situations, we use an ultra-low volume fogger or thermal fogging system to dispense deodorant into the air. These systems are designed so that they break chemicals down so that they mimic the behavior of smoke.
Another popular tool used to deodorize smoke-like smells is an ozone generator. The portable ozone machine is often used in the restoration industry to eliminate many different types of odors. The machine does this by releasing unstable oxygen molecules consisting of three oxygen atoms. Ozone chemically reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and remove the odors.
When deodorizing your clothing store, our SERVPRO team keeps in mind that both your building materials and contents could have been negatively affected by unpleasant aromas. In many cases, we remove your clothing from your racks and deodorize it in a different area than your building. Since ozone can be hazardous to humans, we treat your contents inside a sealed room and we set it up in your building only when it is not occupied.
Our portable ozone machines can put out up to 100 cubic feet per minute of ozone molecules. An ozone generator can handle a room up to 120,000 cubic feet. The unit has a timer that makes us able to set it from anywhere from one to twelve hours.
