SERVPRO Offers Comprehensive Fire Damage Cleanup in San Antonio Home
Even after the flames have been put out, the lingering odor of smoke can be a constant reminder of the fire disaster. Professional restoration companies, like SERVPRO, have the expertise and equipment to remove smoke odor during the fire damage cleanup of your San Antonio home.
SERVPRO techs use various odor control measures during the fire cleanup of your San Antonio home, depending on the source and intensity of the odor. SERVPRO techs often use multiple methods during the restoration process to increase the efficiency of odor elimination.
Deodorizing After Smoke Damage
The biggest challenge SERVPRO techs face during deodorizing fire-damaged homes is reaching the odor-causing smoke particles hidden in pores and surface cavities. However, using the right equipment, it is possible to create conditions that enable the deodorizer to interact more effectively with the hidden odor-causing residues.
Some of the most common equipment we use to neutralize odor after fire damage include-
- Air scrubbers are machines that filter the air in a room or building. They capture and remove odor-causing airborne particles, such as smoke and soot, and can significantly improve indoor air quality.
- Thermal foggers release a heated, deodorizing mist that penetrates porous materials, such as walls and furniture. The mist neutralizes smoke odor molecules, effectively eliminating the smell.
- Ozone generators produce ozone, a very reactive gas that reacts with odor molecules to neutralize them.
- Hydroxyl generators produce hydroxyl radicals, which react with odor molecules to neutralize them. Hydroxyl generators are safe around people, pets, and plants and can be used in occupied spaces.
Cleaning Smoke and Soot Residue is Equally Important
In addition to the deodorizing agents, SERVPRO techs use specialized cleaning products and techniques to remove smoke residue from surfaces, such as walls, floors, and furniture. Removing the residue can further reduce the odor of smoke in a room or building.
