How SERVPRO Removes Fire Odors From Closter Homes
Closter Fire and Odor Removal Through Recreation of Fire Conditions
After a household fire in Closter, a substantial agenda of recovery phases, tasks, and steps develop as our experienced project managers assess the situation. We work through the list, checking box after box, and your home returns to preloss condition as we clear away debris and residues. Throughout the project, our technicians are open to your questions and concerns. One worry we want to put to rest is a lingering odor. No matter how diligent we are while cleaning, disinfecting, and rebuilding fire-damaged structures if the odor remains, our work is incomplete.
Reality and Perception
In your Closter home, fire and odor link themselves together. When you or members of your family notice a smoky smell, the memory of the chaos and fear felt during the fire comes rushing back. Your experience of fire odor might be primarily an individual perception. Still, we tackle the task of neutralizing and eliminating all traces of fire damage malodors with perseverance, working with you until you are satisfied.
The Four Basics Underlying Deodorization
SERVPRO technicians understand that if we are meticulous about the following, nearly all odor complaints resolve.
- Remove the odor source
- Deep clean surfaces that were in contact with the odor-causing substances
- Recreate circumstances that permitted odor penetration
- Seal surfaces that persist in emitting odors
Why Deep Cleaning Alone Is Frequently Inadequate
The odor-bearing particles that float and settle after combustion are tiny, invisible to the naked eye. They persist in a professionally-cleaned environment because:
- They absorb into a porous material
- They often form in large quantities
- They are present for extended periods
- They penetrate materials more easily under super-heated conditions
- They vaporize readily when humidity levels rise
How Recreating Odor Penetrating Conditions Helps
SERVPRO uses thermal fogging as an option when odors linger with excellent results. Deodorant compounds are combusted in a heated chamber, minimizing the size of the deodorants to the equivalent of the persistent odor-bearing particles. These minute particles seek out the odors, pairing with the residues to neutralize the smell. Because they act similarly to the odor-bearing particles, they can cause the change even deep within porous materials.
