This house in Bend, Oregon had a strong odor of smoke from the many wildfires in the area. The homeowner had left a bedroom window open for over a month, allowing the smell to settle in the house.
SERVPRO of Bend's fire cleaning team was called in to assist with getting rid of the odor. Fortunately, the smell was confined to the room that had the window left open.
SERVPRO of Bend cleaned the walls using SERVPRO's fire cleaning products and then added a Hydroxyl generator, which uses UV wavelengths to deodorize fire and smoke odor.
The benefit to using a Hydroxyl generator is that are safe to use in occupied areas for deodorization purposes
