SERVPRO Helps Perform Deodorization Removing Any Stubborn Odors from your Property

After a fire damages your Everett home, you may notice a strong stench. Although you might expect it to go away after cleaning and removal of damaged materials from the loss site, results might vary for several reasons.

Why does it smell after fire incidents?

When making plans for fire smoke odor removal in Everett, you have to understand where various smells originate from to ease the challenges that can develop during restoration. The traditional sources of odor include:

  • Greasy residues from burning meat or grease
  • Residues from incompletely combusted materials
  • Synthetic material residues

Apart from differences in physical properties, the residues produce varying smells. They also react differently to cleaning efforts, which can influence the odor problem in your house further.

 Why do smells remain after cleaning?

  • Invisible residues
  • Penetration of residues into materials
  • Improper removal of residues during cleaning

Lingering smells and mysterious odors require specific deodorization efforts to complement the effects of cleaning. Our SERVPRO technicians use a variety of approaches to help resolve the problem, including applying deodorization products on the surface of the smelling materials. We can apply granules or pellets to absorb the odor or spray liquid odor counteractants on materials.

In case we discover the odor infiltrates beyond the surface of the material, we use methods that penetrate the material in question. We can use Ultra Low Volume misters, which atomize water-based liquid deodorizers, producing particles of around 20-60 microns, which can penetrate many materials that act as odor reservoirs. The hydroxyl generator is a safe and effective device for purging the air of unwanted scents.

Alternatively, we can use thermal foggers, which use petroleum or solvent-based deodorizers, making them perfect when dealing with odor from greasy or synthetic residues.

SERVPRO of South Everett can help when fire odors prove hard to eliminate. Call us at (425) 367-4484 to assist. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
