Do you Have a Stubborn odor that Cannot be Removed?

2/21/2020 (Permalink)

Graphic of a car with the words "Deodorize with Ozone Odor Removal, Car, Home, Office, Locker room" Whether it’s a smoky smell in a vehicle, or a locker room full of stinky equipment, we’ve got odor solutions for any size job.

The science of identifying and eliminating odors can be tricky, but as pros in deodorization, we're able to take care of it.

SERVPRO of Farmington and Farmington Hills can help identify and remove the odor. We have several odor removal products to help remove offensive odors. One technique used for stubborn odors is an Ozone generator to destroy stubborn odors, such as tobacco, soot, animal, and mildew odors. Many deodorizers simply mask odors, but an Ozone generator can remove the odor. 

How does an Ozone generator work?

Ozone reacts to the odors through an oxidation process to change the molecular structure. 

Are there dangers when using an Ozone generator?

The area being treated by an Ozone generator must be free from humans, pets, and plants.  The treated space must then be circulated with fresh air before people and pets can go in.

An Ozone generator can be a safe and effective tool to remove stubborn odors. Our technicians are highly trained with years of experience, call SERVPRO of Farmington and Farmington Hills at (248) 427-1500 to safely eliminate odors from your home or business.

Vandalism with spray paint on the exterior of a home in Redford.

SERVPRO of Farmington & Farmington Hills helped a local resident clean up graffiti on the side of her home. Images in spray paint were large and visible from the road.  Our Technicians pre-tested Graffiti remover on the siding to make sure the surface would not be damaged by the product.  Once the product was approved to use, technicians applied the Graffiti remover and then pressure washed the affected wall.

Graffiti Remover is a water-based cleaner that will remove graffiti, ink, marker, spray paint, latex paint, lipstick, wax marks, rubber marks, pencil and grease safely and effectively from many rough/unpainted, textured/non-porous surfaces as well as porous surfaces.  This product is designed to work on concrete, brick, block, stone, fences, galvanized metal, glass, Plexiglas and plastics.

Vandalism and graffiti can be very upsetting. It can range from relatively minor pranks to malicious destruction of property. Often simple acts of vandalism, like breaking a window, can cause significant water and mold damage if not addressed in a timely manner.

Chandelier crashes to the ground in West Bloomfield

Chandelier crashes down from second story foyer in West Bloomfield

The Chandelier fell from the ceiling in a 2-story foyer causing damage to the tile floor below.  The homeowner was fortunate no injuries occurred from the falling light fixture as it is a high traffic area. The chandelier shattered into small pieces.  After investigation, an electrician found that the chandelier was improperly installed.

SERVPRO understands when dealing with shattered glass there are safety considerations to be made, from sharp edges to tiny shards that can get lost in carpet fibers and can be left behind if not cleaned up properly.  SERVPRO has the know how and proper equipment to ensure your property is safely cleaned up.

Should I call my insurance to file a claim?

Call your insurance company to let them know what happened.  Take photos of the damage.  If the damage is minimal, wait to file a claim until SERVPRO arrive to inspect the damage.  In some cases, the damage could be less than the deductible.  Talk with your insurance agent about your individual plan if you have questions concerning your policy.


We work with your insurance.
For a stress free claims process, SERVPRO can help manage the insurance paperwork and process.

Carpet Cleaning

Kevin, our expert Carpet Cleaning technician teaching his helper to clean.

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting.

A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

SERVPRO of Farmington & Farmington Hills technicians are cleaning carpet in a banquet room in Royal Oak.  Kevin is teaching our new technician Dominique to properly clean the carpet.  He is excited to see him do a good job!

Letter of Recommendation

SERVPRO restoraton & cleaning vehicle

Here is a letter of Recommendation from a previous SERVPRO customer...

At first I thought, “how am I going to take advantage of the great team at SERVPRO when I don’t have a disaster?” 

Then it came to me.  I am actively looking at housing opportunities and while some have great potential they are in need of serious clean, so why not utilize the SERVPRO team for that.  

I reached out to Angela, who promptly set me up with a member of the team to meet at the house.  They listened to what I had in mind for the house, and they discussed options, and in a very short while gave me a quote for the work.

Whether you’re recovering from a disaster or need help with a major cleaning project, I recommend you reach out to the professional team at SERVPRO of Farmington & Farmington Hills.
