Why We Use Hydroxyl Generators to Help Clean-up After a Fire

How Hydroxyl Generators Help Maitland & Casselberry Homes After Fire Damage 

Advanced equipment is a priority of producing effective results for customers all over the Central Florida area, including Maitland and Casselberry. We know how devastating fire loss incidents can be, so we invest in the machines and tools that can help us to maximize our efforts and efficiency, ultimately getting you back into your home more quickly after the incident. With odors and air quality concerns being such a prevalent threat after extinguishment, having a productive tool that can address both of these issues simultaneously is a time and money-saving approach for our clients. 

Understanding how hydroxyl generators can work to reduce fire damage in homes after an emergency can allow you to appreciate the intricacy and efficiency of our restoration approach. For many decades, deodorization was entrusted to harsh chemicals or to the effective results that ozone generators and chambers could produce. The disadvantage was that the ozone machine was not safe for use around living things. 

Hydroxyl generators produce radicals that can break down volatile organic compounds and the molecular compounds of odors with the same chemical reaction that occurs when the sun’s UV rays react with water vapor and oxygen in the atmosphere. This reaction can decompose the odor’s molecular structure, eliminating its presence in the environment. 

What makes these machines such an advantage in fire loss recovery, is that they allow our SERVPRO professionals to continue working on other mitigation strategies and cleanup while deodorization and air purification persist. With the alternative ozone machines, our professionals could not continue working on other aspects of recovery. 

With its ability to both address odors embedded in hard and soft materials, as well as open areas, it is becoming a vital tool for our restoration professionals on every fire loss recovery job that we undertake.  

Our goal is to provide each customer with an effective and efficient service when disasters threaten their homes. To make fire loss incidents “Like it never even happened,” give our SERVPRO of Maitland-Casselberry specialists a call today at 407-388-0404.
