Removing Odors from Properties with Fire Damage here in Lake Worth

One of the most prominent issues homeowners experience after a minor fire are unpleasant odors. When materials burn they release chemicals along with carbon into the surrounding atmosphere. Synthetic materials in particular release thicker smokes which come with odors that are not easy to remove. Using a professional service to both remove soots as well as tackle lingering odors is an essential part of getting your home back to how it was before.

Properties that undergo minor fire damage in Lake Worth can be remediating relatively quickly with a minimum fuss. Inhabitants do not have to move out of the structure during restoration because the flames are contained in one specific area, like a kitchen for example.

The more concerning aspect is that smokes travel on natural air currents and can occupy small, enclosed spaces that are difficult to remediate. From there, these residues and soots can give off odors that not only provide an unpleasant reminder of the damages, but also fill your home with the smells of burnt plastics and wood. SERVPRO can provide technicians with IICRC qualifications in odor control and remove unpleasant smells efficiently.

Deodorization requires more than one method to be truly effective. Sometimes, the source of an odor is never found; SERVPRO technicians use multiple procedures to ensure that the smell is combated properly. The first procedure is to use thermal fogging equipment. These vaporize deodorant solvents and spread that vapor throughout the affected area. Since deodorizing vapors are similar to smoke, they enter the same cavities and neutralize the offending odor.

In enclosed spaces like ventilation shafts or small attic spaces, we can place odor pellets. These mask odor particles until they eventually dissipate into the surrounding atmosphere and no longer present a problem. Furnishings can also be a common culprit in burnt smells even if they appear clean to the naked eye. We use chemical containment methods, spraying furniture with chemical deodorizers that form a barrier and prevent odors from rising into the air.

Part of getting your home back to preloss conditions is removing all reminders of the event, contact SERVPRO of Lake Worth at (516) 588-9777 for thorough restoration and deodorization.
