MILDEW AND MOUSE CONTROL
of the biggest concerns after a home fire is getting rid of the odor of a fire.
Unfortunately, this is also among the most difficult activities. Records which
survived the 1906 San Francisco fire and are today in the National Archives still
smell strongly of smoke — over 90 years latter.
the use of chemicals to mask the smell, there are two general approaches used
commercially. One is called Thermal Deodorization and the other is Ozone Treatment.
Ozone is a viable choice with pianos, but frying them is NOT. Heat treating a
piano will cause the frame to over dry and come apart.
too, that the source of the odor can be very complex. For example, with furniture,
the smell may be literally on the surface in the soot; or it may in impregnated
into the finish, especially if the finish was softened by the fire. A softened
finish should be replaced completely.
provides effective purification of air and water from bacteria's, viruses and
other microorganisms, and ozone eliminates odors without producing any hazardous
byproducts. Its natures own purifying process. It is the odor cancelling quality
of ozone that we are dealing with. Ozone also kills mildew. For this reason, pianos
which have been affected by smoke can be deodorized by ozone treatment, and pianos
which took on mildew by being stored or used in damp areas can have the mildew
virtually killed off completely.

likes to admit that mice have invaded their home. A mouse takes up residence,
collects food from the pantry and dogs food dish, and may even be well on the
way to raise a happy little family of more mice before you see the tell tale evidence
of the mouse.
LOVE upright pianos. They especially like to make house under the keys. There
are three sections under there, living room, pantry, and restroom. Many times
I have opened up an upright piano that had something restricting the keys from
dropping all the way, only to find a mouse apartment in full progress.
MouseMaster traps will catch the mouse when it first enters the piano down in
the bottom area. It smells of natural real peanut butter, but the trap has a thick
layer of extremely sticky substance that catches the mouse and holds it securely
once it steps inside the box. Just fold the box up by the instructions, remove
the protective layer, and put the trap in the bottom of the piano. You will need
to remove the bottom "kick board" by lifting or turning the lever that secures
it at the top in order to open the bottom area.
