  • Deodorize carpets, curtains and clothing and other porous materials

Advanced Deodorization Techniques

If a thorough cleaning does not do the trick and sealing is impractical, SERVPRO utilizes equipment like thermal foggers, ozone machines, or hydroxyl generators. These resources emit particles that seek out and pair with the odiferous smoke solids, neutralizing the smell through chemical changes at the molecular level. This approach can be successful with airborne smells and malodorous particles that settled and even worked their way into fabrics, cracks, or crevices.

Even when your belongings are in good shape, and the cleanup is minor, the lingering odor can be overwhelming. Our SERVPRO crew has a variety of approaches to use, including deodorizing pellets, charcoal-activated filters, and even ozone air purifiers. Here are just a few examples of materials and possible restoration solutions; Porous materials like drywall, wood and furniture often require ozone treatments to remove the smoke smell. Upholstery, carpeting, drapes and other fabrics are often dry cleaned with special chemical deodorizers to neutralize the smell, then either steam or dry cleaned. The exact deodorization process will vary depending on the extent of the fire smell and the type of materials involved.

Contact us today if your home or business has experienced smoke or soot damage from an accidental fire disaster. Our crews are always here to help with solutions and services tailored to your damages and needs.

Our SERVPRO restoration specialists know a lot about the secondary damages from soot and smoke that happen as the result of a blaze. Fire creates smoke and soot, and the tiny particles float in the air and will become trapped in drapes, carpets and furniture, or collect on surfaces and inside your HVAC system. When these issues arise and you see soot residue or smell smoke odors, the solution is the same.

SERVPRO restoration professionals will address widespread effects of fire damage including soot and smoke residue that can stain surfaces with appropriate equipment and cleaning products to minimize damage. For structural concerns, we have a team of licensed contractors within our SERVPRO crew that can help to address both temporary construction solutions to prevent worsening damage while mitigation is underway and full-scale reconstruction and build back after that. Calling your local SERVPRO will provide top quality services, experience, knowledge and trust that our fire damage restoration crews will quickly restore your home or business, “Like it never even happened.”

WINTER FIRE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:

Before making a fire in the fireplace, open the damper and crack open a window, keep the screen closed to encourage airflow up into the chimney. Light a match, blow it out and watch the smoke to see if it is properly going up the chimney. To increase the draft in your chimney, burn your fires hot and for short periods of time instead of all day. Improper airflow can cause smoke and soot damage to your home’s contents. Poor airflow can result from excessive creosote deposits, closed or plugged dampers, malfunctioning flues, and chimney blockages or a dirty cap, always remember never leave a fire unattended.

Avoid using wood from recently cut trees, they contain high levels of moisture which contributes to additional smoke and deposits inside your chimney. Seasoned and dry wood appears dark, has cracks on the end and will sound hollow when hitting another piece of wood. Look for signs of creosote and soot buildup, creosote is a dark substance that accumulates if wood isn’t burning completely, it’s a major factor in chimney fires and a good reason to have an annual inspection to avoid costly fire property damage and repairs.

Big and Small Steps you can take now to prepare for a property disaster

Preparing in advance to handle a Monmouth County property disaster can seem a little ominous, but after helping countless local home and business owners during property damage recoveries in our community we know it can make a huge difference during and following a property emergency. Here are some key steps to take in advance that can be important to the recovery process and the overall restoration of your property.

  • Know the hazards that are present in your area.
  • Review your insurance policies and confirm you have adequate cover against each type of disaster you are vulnerable to. Also check your sum insured to avoid being underinsured.
  • Take a household inventory and store copies in a safe location or online. Cataloging your belongings with a home inventory might sound tedious, but how easy would it be for you to recall all the contents of your home if you lost everything? Taking a home inventory can help you determine if you have enough insurance and can save you time and headaches when filing a claim following a disaster
  • Prepare a disaster plan. Your plan should start with having somewhere safe to go. Think of someone who could house you and your family and talk to them about what might happen in the event of a disaster. Then talk to everyone who lives in your home about what to do if there’s an emergency and you are unable to return
  • Have an evacuation plan. In some cases when you need to evacuate, there may not be a lot of time. Plan how to evacuate your home quickly and make sure everyone knows the evacuation plan. Make sure everyone has a list of emergency contact numbers they can phone
  • Make sure to regularly check safety devices in your home, such as smoke alarms and fire extinguishers
