Odor Removal

Odor Removal

One of the most unpleasant after-effects of smoke or fire damage is the offensive odor that can linger long after the original emergency event. Odor removal is an important part of Crystal Restoration Services' treatment package and is performed by technicians thoroughly trained in the latest state-of-the-art techniques.

The goal of any odor removal operation is not simply to "mask" the odor but to effectively neutralize it at its source. Crystal Restoration Services uses a combination of methods to ensure that odors are completely eliminated in the damaged site.

Wet-Fogging Methods:
These methods are particularly effective when smoke smell is light and/or the service is performed immediately after the fire is extinguished. We use an atomized deodorant which easily reaches into even the smallest openings where odors are trapped. Because a damaging residue may result with improper application, professional services are critical for this type of method.

Dry-Fogging Methods:
Because there is no damaging residue and the deodorizer circulates more freely than with wet-fogging methods, the dry-fogging method is preferred in most situations that can be effectively treated by fogging.

Crystals: Odor-absorbing crystals are placed in air handling systems or dead air spaces once cleaning has been completed. Lingering odors are masked with a pleasant aroma.

Ozone Restoration:
The most powerful and permanent deodorizing method available today, Crystal Restoration uses this procedure to also reduce mold, mildew and related odors. In addition, we offer special ozone chambers to neutralize odors trapped in furniture, clothing, draperies, documents, etc.

Air Scrubbing Methods:
Placing state-of-the-art "air scrubbing" equipment in a damaged environment can assist in both the removal of odors and in preventing the spread of odors to uncontaminated areas. Portable air scrubbers carry air filtration to an even higher level than negative air machines, by utilizing more powerful blowers that pull high volumes of air through four stages of filtration (two particulate filters, a carbon absorption filter, and a HEPA filter). They can be operated using three different methods: recirculation, negative pressure, and air cleaning in remote areas.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I wanted to let you know how happy my family and I are with your recommendation of Crystal Remediation! We called you early on New Year’s Eve day explaining what had happened in our home. You recommended Crystal and said you would have them at the house by 1:30. Really, I thought. 1:30 on NYE? I honestly figured it would be Tuesday after the holiday before anyone would be out. But lo and behold, at 1:30 PM on Sunday, there was Steve and his crew from Crystal at the door. Led by Steve, these men were courteous, kind and genuinely concerned for our well being. Steve immediately set out assessing the damage. His crew stayed until nearly 5pm, setting up the giant dehumidifier and fans throughout the house and said they would be back first thing Tuesday morning to “clean things up”. I put that in quotes because, while the house was a disaster because of the flood, they made it clean and livable! On behalf of my entire family, Thank you.

Mark recently helped my sons and I through a devastating house flood. His professionalism and compassion helped us in a very difficult time and we'd like to see efforts applauded and recognized by his superiors. This was our first experience with Crystal Restoration and we would highly recommend your company in the future. Mark's human element to a crisis should the standard all employees strive to achieve. He helped ease our stress through the entire process and we are so grateful. All to often, the only feedback service companies receive is with regard to negativity. This is a glowing testimony to what we hope is a valued employee. Thank you.

I write this in reference to Craig Collins who has done one great job for our client, Torrington Country Club. From the phone call I made to Craig the morning of the fire, his attitude and work ethic has been one of "can do". What a job he and the employees of Crystal Restoration Services have done and continue to do for our client's loss. Please thank Craig and your employees for all that each had one for us.

WE OFFICIALLY LOVE YOU ALL!!! We discovered several inches of water filling our entire basement! We've made many phone calls to address the many issues involved here. Our Public Adjuster, Allen Sabel, highly recommended that we call Crystal Restoration. We are so happy that we took his advice! Within maybe two hours of our initial call to your office, we were blessed to meet Mark. It was Mark's professionalism, mixed with his kind, calming personality, that made us know that Crystal Restoration was the way to go! We just called to cancel all the other restoration companies who gave us estimates! We're looking forward to meeting more of your crew tomorrow morning.
