Controlling Odors Fire Damage Leaves Behind
Odor-causing particles from the fire's smoke quickly end up in locations far from the fire's location. Because these areas do not contain fire damage, we do not need to remove anything from your home. However, hidden particles continue producing the smoky scent of the fire. SERVPRO the equipment to rid your home of this odor permanently.
If your home sustains fire damage, we can help you with your fire and smoke restoration needs, including odor elimination. Sprays and air fresheners only mask the smell without eliminating its cause. No matter where smoke particles hide, they disintegrate and break down, ending up in the air again. When you breathe them in, you smell them as smoke and burnt materials. Smoke is full of partially burned minuscule pieces of the things from within your home, and some of these may have carcinogenic properties. Smelling a smoky odor can become more than a minor inconvenience.
SERVPRO employees become certified by the IICRC in several different areas of restoration technology. Using this knowledge, our technicians use odor-neutralizing methods to remove these particles' ability to enter back into your home's air currents. Keeping them out of the air your family breathes keeps them from noticing these malodorous particles.
To remove hidden odor-producing smoke particles, we can implement thermal fogging. This method causes the physical bonding between chemical agents and unwanted particles from the fire. The powerful jets of steam penetrate the same locations the hot smoke went during the blaze. Bonding occurs quickly, providing our customers with the permanent elimination of problematic odors. This technique must be used cautiously to prevent the deterioration of vinyl, plastics, and rubber materials.
If used immediately after a fire, air scrubbers can make the air healthier for your family by significantly reducing the amount of soot in the air before it ends up deposited on surfaces or inhaled. While this does not eliminate all the soot, it can make things safer for more sensitive individuals, especially if they need to retrieve belongings. HEPA filters work well in conjunction with odor-eating activated charcoal filters. We work hard to improve the IAQ indoor air quality for our customers.
