Fire Damage Technicians in Seminole Discuss Deodorizing Light Smoke Odors
Odor Removal Is a Factor in Fire & Smoke Damage Control
If a small fire burns inside your kitchen in Seminole, but you get it put out quickly, particles that do not fully combust remain in the form of smoke. Even the smallest blazes produce smoke that can travel through your home and cause problems. Soot residues and soils get left on surfaces after the fire gets extinguished.
Any time a fire takes place malodor particles get trapped inside porous materials and create burnt odors. Whenever dealing with fire damage near Seminole, deodorization is a vital step. Unpleasant aromas can get removed from the building through a variety of techniques.
The procedures implemented change based on how severe the odor problem is. When dealing with light smoke damage, the smoke only affects a small area. Damage is given the light classification when no structural components are affected. In light smoke scenarios, soot residues in the area are light or not visible. The smoke problems are not severe when smoke odors are less noticeable further from the source and do not exist in rooms far away from the fire's source.
The first step to any deodorization process is to remove the source of the smoke smells if possible. This means that any charred items or debris present get removed. Our SERVPRO technicians always wait for you and your insurance adjuster's approval before removing any materials from your house.
Next, we ventilate the affected area to disperse the malodorous particles. After that, we clean any surfaces that contain soot residue. We start with surfaces and materials near the source then work in other areas of the building.
We then ventilate the affected region again so that we can determine what is creating the pungent odors. In some cases, we control vapor odors by applying odor counteractant beads or pellets to the floor. During other situations, we use an ultra-low volume fogger to disperse deodorants into the house. We dispense for fog closer to the fire source and less in areas further away.
Even minor blazes that occur inside your home can cause smoke damage that lingers long after the fire gets extinguished. For help eliminating burnt aromas, call SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches at (727) 391-6212 seven days a week.
