Is Odor Removal Part of Fire Damage Services in Seminole?
SERVPRO in Seminole Incorporates Odor Control into our Fire Damage Restoration Service
Every year there are over 358,000 fires in homes across the US. One of the toughest parts of following a fire is ridding your home of the unpleasant odors caused by soot, combustion, and smoke. The microscopic size of smoke particles allows them to permeate most parts of a home, including untreated or exposed woods, drywall, fabrics, and furniture. Generally, porous items of furniture suffer worse from smoke infiltration. Professional services can help with:
- Smoke remediation
- Smoke damage
- Fire damaged homes
There are ways to tackle fire damage in your Seminole home using household appliances. Carpets can often absorb odor particles and be treated by placing baking soda directly onto the carpet surface then vacuuming the area. Using a steam cleaner can also help to dislodge smoke residues that bond to carpet fibers; however, managing the drying process can be complex; a wet carpet is at risk of attracting mold or other microorganisms. Professional services can:
- Vacuum surfaces using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) fittings filter out the odor or soot particles from a carpet.
- SERVPRO technicians can apply an emulsifying agent onto the carpet to absorb soot or odors if baking soda fails.
- Refitting ducts and shafts of a heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit can often tackle unwanted fire odors.
