Floods can cause thousands of dollars in damages, but that’s not all they leave behind. Water damage brings in a heck of a lot of moisture, which can turn into mildew and the kind of mold you do not want in your home very quickly. This will literally rot any wood that you have in your home, which includes the home itself. However, the odors that are left behind can be even worse. When it comes to the odors that water damage leaves behind, it can be almost impossible to get rid of without having to rip up your floors and replace everything. Soon enough you’ll know what soaked to the bone upholstery smells like. Not only that, but water damage can even bring up some odors that have been masked for years.
The Bio3Blaster ozone generator is the last tool that you should have equipped after you have replaced your floors, regardless of whether or not they were carpet or hardwood, and rids your home of that awful odor, or odors.
Set up the ozone generator in the room that has the worst of the odor, and turn it on. If you can find the source of the odor, that’s even better. Depending on the severity of the odor, you may need to run it continuously all night long. If the odor is very minor, then running the treatment cycle for a couple of hours might just do the trick. Open every door and drawer in your home to allow for a proper ozone circulation, so no base goes uncovered.
Once the generator unit has completed running its course, check to see whether or not the odor still lingers. If you can still detect it, run the cycle once more. Because water damage brings unpleasant odors, you may have to do this more than once.
