Eliminating Fire Damage Odors In East Lake Homes

Most house fires last only an hour or two before firefighter extinguish them. The lingering effects can take weeks to eliminate. Only a small number of fires cause major, structural damage to East Lake homes though. Most cleaning and restoration costs come from the smoke and soot, rather than the heat and flames.

Most of this East Lake fire damage from smoke and soot are the odors they generate. Removing them is a difficult process and requires a professional restoration service. SERVPRO has the training to understand that placing furniture outside or repainting over smoke damaged walls only hides odors for a few days or weeks at the most. To permanently deal with lingering odors, our office maintains an extensive, on-hand inventory of restoration equipment.

Electric Pressure Sprayers
Technicians use them to apply deodorizing agents and other cleaning agents. They spray them directly onto the surface of the carpets, fabrics, and structural materials that have heavy odor-causing residues.

These special pumps have large needles our technicians use to inject small amounts of deodorizers directly into carpet and upholstery stains. When possible, we prefer using this method instead of pulling up a carpet or soaking a sofa with cleaning agents.

Ozone Machines
Technicians use them to produce a gas of oxygen molecules that react with odor-causing molecules that deeply penetrated surfaces. The reaction oxidizes them, which eliminates the odor. After a short period, the ozone gas reverts to normal oxygen, leaving no residues.

Ventilation Fans
These industrial exhaust fans move air at high speeds of 3000 to 5000 cubic feet of air per minute. Technicians use them to air out a home that is wet from the actions of the firefighters. The fans can quickly remove the damp, interior air containing odor-causing molecules. They reduce the overall odors and assist technicians in finding the source of the stronger odors.

These devices are only a small number of the cleaning and restoration equipment we maintain at our office. For SERVPRO of Tarpon, our goal is to return your home to its condition before the fire. If you have lingering odors, call us at (727) 934-5555 today to schedule an inspection.
