How SERVPRO Stops Burlington Homes From Smelling Like Fire Damage

One of the worst things about fire damage, is the residual odors that often linger long after the charred materials and clean up for the property have occurred. The fact is, the residents do not have to learn to "just live with it" as smoke odors are a sign of incomplete fire mitigation in the home.

The removal of fire damage in Burlington homes is a multi-layered process. The ambient air quality after the fire loss cleanup and recovery efforts is a significant concern for SERVPRO technicians. They work hard during each phase of fire loss restoration to ensure foul odors do not remain within the home. 

Water Extraction Reduces Odors

When water is part of the fire fighting efforts, if any moisture gets left behind, foul odors and even mold with its own musty calling card have the potential to complicate the fire loss restoration process. SERVPRO technicians carefully scope the property and extract the water before moving on to the drying and odor treatment applications. 

Drying and Ventilation

SERVPRO technicians utilize both containment and negative air chambers as needed to keep soot from traveling via ductwork or foot traffic to other areas of the home and helps lower odors. They also run air scrubbers fitted with HEPA filtration to improve air quality further. Technicians then wipe down all surfaces in the fire loss area to remove all traces of smoke residues.

Direct Smoke Odor Treatment Methods

There are times when residual odors remain after drying and hand cleaning surfaces. SERVPRO has a diverse array of odor control equipment to assist in the eradication of pungent smoke odors in the home. For porous items that may retain smokey odors, applications such as thermal fogging work to eliminate odors in things such as carpet and upholstered furnishings. For capturing airborne particulate, hydroxyl generators safely bind with odorous soot and neutralize it. 

SERVPRO of Bristol at (860) 582-3330 stands ready 24/7 to help local property owners bounce back from fire damage through the use of state of the art technology and extensive training to make the fire loss in the home "Like it never even happened."
