Removing Smoke Odors from Roxborough Home and Contents

12/12/2019 (Permalink)

Roxborough, let SERVPRO help you through the smoke.

We know the way through your Roxborough smoke damage.

Odors present a substantial threat to comfortable living after fire loss incidents in Roxborough homes. Even with manageable fire scenarios where the property owner extinguishes the blaze on their own, odors can be one of the most persistent and challenging obstacles to overcome. As we commit to making these disasters “Like it never even happened,” we have unique and potent strategies for handling lingering harsh odors in a property after extinguishment. 

Much of the initial work that we can do to manage odors and fire damage in Roxborough homes begins with our debris removal process. From shoveling out ash and charred contents to controlled demolition techniques that remove catalysts for continued foul odors in the household, our techniques can help to minimize the sources of noxious scents so that deodorization efforts to come are more efficient and thorough. Between both the removal of rubbish and debris to our focused demolition of affected materials and surfaces, we have experienced general contractors to oversee each phase of recovery our fire restoration technicians begin. 

Which equipment is used in the deodorization process is directly connected to the types of materials affected by smoke and how broad of a damaged area exists. In most scenarios, the task falls to any of the three critical deodorizing units in our inventory – thermal/UV foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators. Each of these units can work to dispel odors in unique ways. Based on the area where these units are necessary, UV cleaning with hydroxyl machines and the creation and distribution of ozone are the best at addressing more significant regions of the house. 

Thermal and UV fogging machines quickly heat liquid deodorization solutions to water vapor for dispersal through a damaged area. The gas state of this product allows it to better penetrate installed construction materials, clothing, upholstery, and other textiles. Also, this is a popular choice based on its lightweight, mobile nature. Foggers can move with our SERVPRO technicians through the house, allowing us to cover more spaces quickly. 

Addressing odors left behind after a fire loss incident can feel overwhelming. Our SERVPRO of Manayunk and Chestnut Hill team arrive with state-of-the-art tools and cleaning products to neutralize present odors. Whenever you need to overcome fire disasters, give us a call at (215) 482-0800.
