1/17/2022 (Permalink)

The presence of soot and smoke residues amplifies odors. SERVPRO trained techs are ready to tackle fire residues and smells.

Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration Rely on Swift Strategies for Loss Effects in Agoura Properties

One of the considerable obstacles in returning a property to preloss conditions after a fire is addressing harsh smoke malodors. As formidable as these damages might be, a similar process occurs for all types of these effects to ensure the most gets done as soon as possible to improve environmental conditions in the house. 

Removing Fire Debris and Bulk Materials

While deodorization might not be one of the first obstacles of fire damage restoration in Agoura homes, early actions can play a significant role in the later removal of harsh smells created by combustion. Among the first of these actions is to remove charred 

  • Ash
  • Charred Materials
  • Blistered Structural Elements
  • Soot

Cleaning Soot from Surfaces

Despite being one of the more formidable impediments and challenging aspects of fire restoration, the presence of soot and smoke residues amplifies odors. Through wet and dry cleaning options, we can manage soil deposits.  

ULV Fogging and Counteractant Products

Lessening the severity of post-fire odors involves the widespread use of units like our foggers. Concentrated odor neutralizing solutions chemically bond with circulating compounds to reduce the presence of smoke smells. Odor-absorbing beads and granules can also help when placed in critical areas of the damage zone. 

Full Deodorization of Malodors

Making smoke damage "Like it never even happened," means completely removing or managing harsh malodors where they exist. Combustion aerosolizes and rapidly spreads smoke damage throughout the property. Even with the counteractant measures taken, hydroxyl generators and ozone machines must play a part in overcoming what offensive smells remain. 

Odors are among the final steps in returning comfortable living conditions for families. As leading fire restoration experts with premier equipment and products, we can manage harsh malodors. Give our SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills team a call when disasters strike at (818) 991-6292.
