Brand New Ozone Room!

4/2/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Lake Arlington is proud to announce the completion of our on-site Ozone Room! 

Ozone treatment is a powerful way to eliminate odors without the use of chemicals or masking deodorizers. The ozone room can be used after a fire to get soot smells off of contents. You set the contents in the room, set the timer, and let it work its magic!

The ozone room works by utilizing an electrical current and breaks down odors. The ozone room is a very important tool that SERVPRO of Lake Arlington utilizes when cleaning contents and deodorizing because it kills the odors at the source without using harsh chemicals.

Here is the science behind the ozone room: Normal oxygen is mixed with an electrical current such as lightning transforming normal oxygen into activated oxygen. The activated oxygen is what cleans the air, contents, etc. This is why it always smells so fresh outside after a thunder storm! The activated oxygen from the electrical currents is cleaning the air naturally! Electricity is nature's way of cleaning the air.

Chemical Sponges

4/2/2019 (Permalink)

Chemical sponges are for removal of dry dirt, dust, and dry smoke soot residues. Our SERVPRO team uses these sponges on all of our fire jobs while cleaning. If our team needs to reach high ceilings we have poles that hold the chemical sponges up high so we can reach those areas. This is a very good way to get soot residue off of walls and ceilings. You never want to wipe fire soot off with a wet sponge, it will only smear more! We use a dry sponge for that very reason. Although, chemical sponges should not be used with protein fires because it will only smear it more. Our technicians are certified in fire restoration and we have the perfect chemicals for any size job.

Why SERVPRO Hurricane Harvey by Jessica Pine Clean-Up After Hurrican Harvey. Houston, Texas

Because I grew up in Houston, working with SERVPRO of Lake Arlington disaster clean-up  after Hurricane Harvey got emotional for me. . A customer asked me, "why would a marketing professional drive all the way to Houston to walk door to door through muck and debris? " why? Because I watched my hometown go underwater from 400miles away, completely powerless to help. I watched people get pulled out of the neighborhoods where I went to school, played softball, and had my first communion. My entire childhood engulfed in the floods. I couldn't pull Houston out of the storm, but I can help her rebuild.
