How to get rid of bad odor after a fire damage.
One of the most significant issues after a fire is not the loss of possessions, but the lingering bad odor left afterward. It can be very challenging to remove smoke smells, often requiring the assistance of professionals who understand what to do when smoke odors do not go away.
What are the steps SERVPRO technicians put into place to remove the smells in a fire damaged house?
- Remove: We find and remove all sources of smoke, taking anything charred offsite for cleaning and restoration when possible, and disposing if damaged items.
- Clean: We use dry cleaning for residue not yet absorbed and wet cleaning with solvents for absorbed residue requiring a deeper clean.
- Neutralize: When the smells still linger after removal and cleaning, we use odor-absorbing beads and then thermal foggers which produce a smoke-like substance reaching throughout the home, attacking hard to reach smoke particles
