Deodorizing Your Home In Great Neck After A Fire
Deodorizing After Fire Damage to Your Great Neck Home
Fires can occur any time of year but can be more of a challenge during a cold New York winter. When the temperature outside quickly cools the contents of your home, it may be more challenging to recuperate afterward if the thick smoke residue settles throughout the structure. It is crucial to deal with the aftermath of a fire quickly and expertly to make sure your home and its contents are restored to their pre-fire condition.
If you find yourself dealing with fire damage in your Great Neck home, contact SERVPRO right away and have our trained technicians create a restoration plan specifically to suit your situation. Attacking odors after a fire can be one of the most challenging aspects of restoring your home.
Technicians remove valuable contents to have them cleaned by specialists or to ensure that smoke odors do not penetrate further into porous surfaces. After the removal of contents, the SERVPRO team searches for the source of the smoke odor. Typically, it is wherever the fire started within the home. The team removes the appliance or heat source that originally emanated the offensive odors; this way, no remaining odors are coming from the source.
SERVPRO technicians often use thermal foggers to dispense solvent-based deodorants. The deodorants go through a heated area in the machine that combusts the solution, breaking it down into microscopic particles that can disburse anywhere throughout the home. These one-half micron-sized particles pair with the offensive odor, neutralizing it by changing its composition. During the fogging process, technicians wear personal protective gear and make sure that residents, pets, and plants are not in the home. Residents may return to the home after the fogged area airs out, and it is easy to breathe.
Another deodorization technique is vapor odor control. The goal here is to attack vapors found within the air. Technicians release products created to release deodorant vapors into the air, counteracting the malodor vapors upon contact. Vapor odor control and thermal fogging work together to combat odors since SERVPRO technicians use a combination of techniques.
