Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

How can SERVPRO help after Fire !

2/28/2022 (Permalink)

When faced with fire damage, smoke odors remain some of the most challenging areas to address. Fire damaged homes often require various strategies that start right off when mitigation begins. Smoke particles can penetrate fabrics and other porous materials while also migrating into other areas of your home via the HVAC system. SERVPRO follows early mitigation protocols for smoke odor removal during house fire cleanup to be proactive during the project. 

Debris removal is one of the most fundamental steps during a fire damage project. Any charred bits of contents and building materials can generate immense soot damage and odors. By carefully disposing of all this debris, it helps limit lingering smoke odors throughout the work zones. 

SERVPRO employs a variety of odor counteractant products during each project while working to restore your fire-damaged interior. All proactive measures help to speed up the project with the help of: 

  • Careful surface cleaning using wet or dry methods 
  • Odor counteracting beads or granules 
  • Thermal Fogging equipment 
  • Air scrubbers with HEPA filtration 
  • Hydroxyl generators 

With many fire emergencies where smoke spreads far and wide throughout the home, SERVPRO odor control technicians (OCT) must place units in multiple areas to achieve neutralization. We also consider the nature of the materials burned to determine the right equipment and products to handle the job. 
 

We repair versus replace whenever possible, which means we may seal walls and ductwork to keep smoke odors at bay. Depending on each situation, our crew may also use soda or dry ice blasting to remove charring on wall studs. Before we finish any project, we make sure there is no lingering foul odor as a reminder of the fire, and everything is “Like it never even happened.” 

SERVPRO of Memorial West/Bear Creek is available 24/7 to help with fire damage to your property.
