SERVPRO Technicians are Trained in MANY Approved Ways to Get Rid of Odor After a Fire

After a fire, getting rid of smoke odors can be a challenging task. Smoke forms from incomplete combustion and is made up of soot, plus gases and oils. The smell comes from volatile molecules given off when different items in your home are burned. They linger long after the smoke has been cleared.
 
You need a professional fire damage remediation specialist such as SERVPRO to get the smoke odors out of your Bentonville home. The sources of the odor may need to be removed, such as burnt furniture, cabinets, non-salvageable contents, and drywall. Our technicians also need to clean any remaining materials and items with the correct cleaning products before we can turn our attention to any lingering odors.
 
The duct system in your home also needs to be restored. Soot, smoke, and odors from a fire get into the duct system. It is important that we do take this step early in the remediation process to stop the HVAC system from re-contaminating areas which have been cleaned.
 
The volatile molecules of smoke stay airborne, so we must get rid of the odors in the air. There are many specialized techniques to accomplish this task, and our technicians are highly trained and experienced to handle performing them. No matter what we use, the common goal is to remove the offensive smoke odor.
 
Air scrubbing removes 99.7 percent of particulates from the air which are 0.3 microns or larger in size. When using this method, our technicians have a HEPA air scrubber operating during the restoration process.
 
Thermal fogging uses a deodorizer that is petroleum-based using a thermal fogging unit. This process counteracts odorous molecules by making use of fragrance modification.
 
Ozone is a powerful oxidizer which neutralizes vapor change by letting extra oxygen back out into the air. Ozone generation is a successful process and is best deployed in a controlled environment.
 
An aromatic compound vaporized from a plastic container which is sealed and then let go into the air by a blower or fan is a process called vapor modification. Mineral oils in this process are non-oil, non-toxic, non-explosive, and non-flammable.
 
SERVPRO of Benton/Carroll Counties can use one or a variety of these methods to eliminate the smoke odors from your home after a fire. Please call us at (479) 787-7377 as soon as the fire is out, and we can repair your home plus the smoke odors out so you cannot tell a fire even happened.
