This morning SERVPRO of Wayne and South Lackawanna Counties was called to a local school district to assess an odor concern. The key to any odor is naturally removing the source which we determined to be a fish tank in a class room. Apparently it was "cleaned" but the odor lingers.

After assessing the situation our certified technicians recommended that the tank be removed to eliminate the source. After which, we fogged the classroom with a deodorant. Fogging allows the deodorant to permeate all the nooks and crannies of the room as well as the porous ceiling tiles which can retain the smell. The final step was to place a hydroxyl generator as a means to kill the remaining odor molecules to ensure the smell dissipates.

Our unique training and specialized equipment gives SERVPRO of Wayne and South Lackawanna Counties the ability to tackle any odor concerns. if your home or business is experiencing a stubborn odor issue, call the odor control experts. We help make it "Like it never even happened."
