The Conditions at the Loss Site Help Determine the Steps SERVPRO Takes during Fire Restoration

Strong odor can be the main issue or one of many problems you face after a fire incident at your Fort Pierce home. Whatever the case, you need a sound plan to deodorize the property restoring preloss conditions.

For the fire damage restoration effort in your Fort Pierce home to eliminate all odors, it requires more than just applying chemical agents to the areas where the smell is suspected to originate. The volatile odor molecules usually penetrate beyond the surface, thus making it difficult to neutralize them. Also, the soils emitting the smells have different physical properties that can inhibit removal. SERVPRO technicians are prepared to handle these different aspects to ensure the removal goes according to plan.

Odor management can be challenging under various circumstances, including:

  • Water & fire damage restorations
  • House fire clean up
  • Smoke damage

Some of the reasons for such difficulty is because successful deodorization requires:

  • Removal of odor sources
  • Thorough cleaning of all surfaces 
  • Penetration of materials emitting odors

Abundant moisture sets soils making it harder to clean the affected areas. On the other hand, if smoke damage is the primary issue, you can expect deeper penetration of odors in porous and semi-porous materials. Effective removal is only possible if the deodorization methods can replicate the conditions that created the smells.

Our SERVPRO IICRC-certified teams combine different removal techniques to benefit from the unique benefits each method offers. For instance, we mix water-based deodorizers with cleaning solutions, thus removing soils and odors simultaneously. Alternatively, we fog solvent-based deodorizers into the damaged property since they can penetrate deep into materials to counteract odors.

SERVPRO of Fort Pierce NE offers top-notch fire damage restoration services restoring a home to its preloss condition. Call us at (772) 362-7060. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
