Ozone vs. Hydroxyl; Is There A Right Answer?

12/18/2020 (Permalink)

A ozone machine is on top of a ladder surrounded by fans on the floor SERVPRO has the skills needed to effectively circulate ozone through the whole structure.

Odor removal is an essential component of almost every restoration job. There are a variety of options available from masking agents to foggers to ozone and hydroxyl generators, and so on. In our industry, we have noticed a rather large debate being waged over the benefits and dangers of these two options. There is a clear advantage to using machines to eliminate odors from spaces and items rather than simply just trying to mask them.  SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc technicians are highly trained to recommend the best method for your odor neutralization.  

It is VERY IMPORTANT to know that both ozone and hydroxyl will remove odors – hydroxyl will just take longer.

Differences Between Hydroxyl and Ozone

  1. Hydroxyl is not harmful to plants and fish.
  2. Hydroxyl does not leave behind a chemical smell.
  3. Hydroxyl works on a larger variety of odors.
  4. Hydroxyl can be used in wet areas to help deodorize. Ozone machine used in wet areas can bleach a material.
  5. Hydroxyl machines will typically take longer to deodorize.
  6. Ozone can possibly damage rubber or leather goods.
  7. Ozone is to be used in unoccupied areas with return to the area at least one hour after the machine has turned off.
  8. Ozone is much stronger and faster and must be closely monitored.  

Both options are very effective and have their time and place on when to be used. Depending on the type of odor and the amount of time allotted will dictate what option you should choose. Be sure to only use experienced technicians when using equipment such as these. Supervision of both methods is necessary to affectively remove the odor. SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc office staff, and technicians, are trained to know which method will be most effective for your situation

Call SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc 920-674-3002 for all your deodorization needs and questions.

Is It Time For a Duct Cleaning?

9/23/2020 (Permalink)

A green machine sits on a basement floor and is connected to a furnace SERVPRO has equipment for almost any task!

So, you're trying to decide whether a duct cleaning is for you. In this blog we will be giving you some facts to try and help you decide whether or not it's time.

Before we start with the facts, you should know it's recommended ducts be cleaned about every five years. There is no magic number that determines whether or not your ducts in particular need to be cleaned, so these facts may help you determine if you think it's time based off of what is happening in your home. 

Fact #1: Having a duct cleaning done can save you energy.

  • Obstructions can create reduced airflow; obstructions include dirt, dust, cobwebs, pest droppings and biological growth
  • Cleaning duct work creates an easier job for your HVAC system. A system that doesn't have to work as hard, lasts longer
  • Removing obstructions and debris reduces risk of damage to essential parts of an HVAC system

Fact #2: Duct cleanings create a better indoor air quality 

  • Air duct cleanings remove contaminants from your duct work. These contaminants include pollen, dirt, dust and cobwebs. For some people, contaminated air ducts can create allergic reactions, or even asthma attacks
  • Duct cleanings can result in a lower amount of duct accumulating on horizontal surfaces, creating less irritants sitting in the open home

Fact 3: Comfort

  • A duct cleaning can identify leaks in your duct work that could be causing drafts or excessive noise

If you are having low air flow, unusual allergies or respiratory issues, or leaks and noise a duct cleaning may help. Reach out to medical professionals about serious health effects and if you believe they are related to something in your home, please contact an indoor air quality specialist to identify those problems. If issues are identified, SERVPRO is always here to help you resolve them.

As always please feel free to contact SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc with any further questions, comments, or to seek services at 920-674-3002.

SERVPRO Has Many Options Regarding Cleaning Services. Do You Know The Difference?

9/21/2020 (Permalink)

Three SERVPRO technicians are working with machinery used to clean carpets SERVPRO has many options in regards to your cleaning needs. Need a carpet cleaning? Give us a call at 920-674-3002.

Because SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc is known as a professional cleaning and restoration company, we often get calls to do household cleaning. Sometimes, our customer is moving into a new home and wants to make sure it is clean before their belongings get moved in. Other times, an executor of an estate is handling a loved one's home that needs to be ready to put up for sale.

These examples require different cleaning needs. If you call our office at 920-674-3002 we will ask you questions to determine what type of cleaning is best for your situation.  

In the case of someone moving into a new home, typically the home is vacant. This makes our cleaning process more efficient as we don't have to move any items to clean behind, or move dishes out of the way to clean cabinets. Our services will include wiping down horizontal surfaces in the home, cleaning the outside of cabinets and appliances, cleaning and dusting light fixtures and vacuuming visible cobwebs. We can also provide carpet cleaning services or duct cleaning services for added peace of mind that you are moving into a clean home.  If there are any odors present, we can also offer deodorization services to go along with the cleaning.  The previously mentioned is what we would consider a "general cleaning."  

Should you need a "deep cleaning" performed on your property, our job becomes a little more time consuming. We will ask you many questions so that we have clear expectations on what is to be done while we are at the property.  In the case of a loved one passing away, there are often belongings that will need to be sorted through. After the family decides what to do with the items that are left, SERVPRO can help remove the ones that are not to be kept. We have working relationships with many companies that will accept donated, gently used belongings so they do not go to waste. The deep cleaning is more detailed since the belongings are also to be cleaned or removed. We can also coordinate dumpsters for removing debris if needed.  Just like the above, we can also offer the other cleaning services such as carpet cleaning or deodorization. 

In either case, we will request an in-person inspection of the property. This is to make sure all of your needs are clearly communicated and can be included in our initial estimate.  

Please give us a call today at 920-674-3002 for your cleaning needs.  SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc, "Like it never even happened."

Use of Ozone After Nicotine

9/11/2020 (Permalink)

Ozone machine sits on a ladder SERVPRO places ozone machines on ladders and uses other measures such as air movers to keep what comes out off of the floor as much as possible.

Ozone is one of the most effective ways at neutralizing smoke odor.  When we are asked to clean and deodorize after cigarette/cigar odor, or after a fire, we we will use an ozone generator.

Ozone is a colorless gas with a pungent odor and powerful oxidizing properties, formed from oxygen by electrical discharges or ultraviolet light. It differs from normal oxygen (O2) in having three atoms in its molecule (O3).

Ozone has existed on Earth for as long as oxygen has been here- about 500 million years. It has existed in our universe for billions of years. Wherever oxygen comes into contact with an electric arc, such as lightning and/or a particular wavelength of ultraviolet rays, like those from the sun around which the planet orbits, ozone will be created.

How is ozone generated?

During an electrical storm, bolts of lightning in the atmosphere rip oxygen molecules apart, leaving single oxygen atoms in their wake. These single atoms quickly bond with surrounding O2 molecules, creating O3, or ozone.

This is why the air smells so fresh right after a lightning storm. Lightning is nature’s air purifier.

The ozone layer in the lower stratosphere is also generated by molecular fission and fusion, but by the sun’s short wave ultraviolet rays rather than by electricity. Coincidentally, it’s this ozone layer- created by short UV waves, that protects life on our planet from the longer UV waves within the spectrum.

Ozone generators manufacture ozone by applying either of these same two principles:

1. Corona Discharge

Ozone generators that utilize the electric arc method of generating ozone are referred to as corona discharge ozone generators. High voltage (2,000 volts and up) is passed through a dielectric material (material that transmits electrical force without conduction), while being fed and cooled by ambient air supplied by a fan located at the rear of the unit. 

This sustained electric arc is what severs the O2 molecules, resulting in the manufacture of ozone.

2. Ultraviolet Light    

Waves of ultraviolet (UV) light are what ‘slice’ O2 molecules in half in UV ozone generators. UV bulbs are mounted inside the generator which emit certain wavelengths of ultraviolet light which, in turn, separate the atoms of passing O2 molecules. This is how our sun creates and maintains the protective ozone layer between the troposphere and stratosphere.

UV is much less effective at generating ozone than corona discharge. Generators of this type typically have a much lower ozone output as a result.

How does ozone destroy odors?

Ozone reacts with odor molecules by transferring the “extra” oxygen atom of the ozone molecule to the odor molecule, changing its composition so it no longer has the same chemical makeup. This chemical reaction is called oxidation.

In a nutshell, through the oxidation process, what was formerly an odor-causing molecule is now an entirely different compound, and therefore does not possess the odor of its preceding form. A simple example of this molecular restructuring is the addition of an oxygen atom to a molecule of H2O to form H2O2 (which is the conversion of water to hydrogen peroxide).

Is Ozone Dangerous?

The most important thing to remember when generating ozone in a space is to evacuate the premises during the treatment. This includes the removal of humans, pets, fish (as there is oxygen in the water) and in the case of high levels generated over a period of several hours, removal of houseplants is suggested. It’s a good idea to post “Do Not Enter- Ozone Area” (or similar message) signs on all entrances of a space as well.

After the treatment time is complete, either enough time should pass for the ozone to revert to oxygen (O2), or the space should be circulated/vented with fresh air before people and animals are reintroduced.

And here’s one of the most beautiful things about using ozone in the restoration industry - the only residue resulting from the generation of ozone is oxygen (O2).  When used properly and a few simple rules are followed, ozone can be a safe and effective tool.

In this photo, you will see an ozone generator on top of the ladder.  We purposely put the generator up high because ozone is heavier than oxygen and it falls to the ground.  Also, you will see 3 fans pushing air/ozone back up toward the ceiling.  Because ozone is heavier than oxygen, the fans are used to re-circulate the ozone to make the deodorization process more efficient.

For all your nicotine odor and other deodorization needs, call SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc.  920-674-3002

Removing Stains from Hardwood Floors

9/4/2020 (Permalink)

White marks from water are very visible on a dark stained wood surface Not all water marks will look like this, but this is a common occurrence in many homes on many different wooden surfaces such as floors or tables.

If you have hardwood floors and kids, or even pets, it is almost guaranteed that you have had a mess at some point. Getting those stains off/out are normally easy cleans, but for the odd stain, or stubborn one, this blog should help you figure out the best steps to removing it.

First, you are going to need to know what kind of floor you have. There are three basic types of floor finishes: wax finish, penetrating stain, surface finishes. A stain/finish sits on top of the wood, whereas wax and penetrating finishes go deeper into the wood. The latter are usually found in older homes. After determining the type of floor, you need to determine the stain type. We will cover both kinds of water stains, non-greasy stains, and greasy stains in this blog.

Lest start with water stains. You will need to identify if the stain is a white ring type stain or a dark (possibly even black) stain. There are two different methods for the respective stain types.

White stains:

  • Wax/penetrating:
    1. Genteelly rub with #000 steel wool and a floor wax
    2. Go on with a #00 steel wool and a mineral spirit/wood floor cleaner
  • Surface finish:
    1. Use a cleaner for urethane finishes, this will most likely take anything right off
      1. Scrubbers can be bought specifically for urethane finishes as well, sometimes extra elbow grease can do the trick for stubborn stains
  • If the previous methods do not work (for any finish type) you can try
    1. Placing a damp towel on the floor and placing a hot iron (not on a steam setting) on top of it for a few seconds. Then wipe the area down with a clean dry towel
    2. Try rubbing the spot with a toothbrush and some rubbing alcohol for a few seconds in small areas at a time

The second type of stains, dark/black stains, can be trickier. Generally, these stains have penetrated the wood, but you really have two options (with no variation depending on the finish type):

  • Dip a toothbrush in bleach and rub the stain. Repeat once more after a few hours, then wait over night to see if the stain is gone
  • You can always strip, sand, and reseal the area if all else fails

For non-greasy food stains/nail polish and the like, you should be able to remove the stains with warm water, dish soap, and a rag.

For greasy stains, such as butter or oils, the method of removal will again be determined by the type of finish on the floor:

  • Wax/penetrating:
    1. Use a dish soap with a high lye content, warm water, and a rag
  • Surface Finishes:
    1. Use the steps above for removing white stains from surface finished wood

When removing stains from wood always go east on moisture and let the area thoroughly dry before doing anything more. Only ever use cleaners for your specific floor type when possible to avoid unnecessary damage. When in doubt, or if you have a very large stain, call a professional such as SERVPRO. We have seen a lot of different situations and are always here to help. Feel free to give us a call at 920-674-3002 with questions or comments.

Carpet Cleaning Tips

12/17/2019 (Permalink)

Carpets that are cleaner last longer and just look better overall. Here are five new ideas you can use to keep your carpets clean.

1. Spot Cleaning. See this tips on cleaning stains. Shaving cream can be used for most carpet stains and sometimes it works even better than other methods out there. Apply shaving cream to the stain and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Once you’ve let the shaving cream sit for long enough, you can blot it up with a dry cloth. Follow that up with a few spritzes of baking soda and vinegar mixed together in a spray bottle. You don’t need to soak your carpet but make sure the stain still feels damp. After five minutes you can blot that up too.

After you blot up the vinegar and water mix, you should be able to see that your once-stained carpet is looking much better. If the stain was particularly set in, you may have to repeat the process once or twice to get your carpet back to normal. Baking soda is great, but shaving cream can be a super handy second option. Give it a try next time.

If you are unable to get the stains out of the carpet and you call a profession be sure to let the professions know what chemicals you may have used already. The reason for this is a chemical that the professions use may counteract when you have used on the carpet.

2. Give steam cleaning a try.

If you’re wanting to save some money, you can alternate deep cleaning with professional cleanings. Doing some of the steam cleaning yourself will make the time between your professional cleanings last longer.

You can rent a steam cleaner at most supermarkets, and the detergent is usually pretty inexpensive too. You won’t need much of the cleaning solution, but if you haven’t used it before, give it a test on a small patch of carpet first. Sometimes certain detergents and carpets don’t mix well, and you don’t want to find that out by starting somewhere highly visible.

3. Ice to remove gum.

One of the most dreaded things you might find stuck in your carpet is gum. Gum is much less sticky once frozen, so you have a better chance of getting it out of your carpet once it’s one solid mass. After it’s been sitting with ice on it for a few minutes, remove what’s left of the ice and try prying the gum up with a butter knife or spoon. 

4. Apply heat.

Another sticky situation for your carpets is wax from something like a candle. Wax can get stuck in your carpet fibers easily.

Try to scrape up the wax or pull it out when it’s cold, cover it with a towel and heat it up with an iron. The wax will soften under the towel and lift up into it. If there are any larger chunks still left under the towel, they should lift up more easily now that they aren’t hardened and stuck to the fibers.

5. Change up when you vacuum.

If you vacuum every week on the same day, try changing things up and choosing a different day of the week. 

Keep what you’ve read here in mind and use these tips the next time you need to do a deep clean or deal with a stain.
