How to Remove the Smoky Odor From Your Fire Damaged Telluride Kitchen

A fire in the kitchen can leave a foul odor throughout your home.

A Kitchen Fire Can Leave Behind a Foul Odor in Your Telluride Home

When people think of fire damage, they rarely think about how they may need to seek out a restoration company that has an excellent reputation attached to their fire odor removal services. Once remediating the fire damage, many might assume the smell may disperse. This is usually the case, but what happens when a particularly stubborn odor remains behind? It becomes essential for the restoration company to take measures to remove the smell from the space where the fire took place.  

Several fire odor removal techniques can ensure your Telluride kitchen no longer smells of burning plastics, paint, and wood. When your stove caught on fire, it scorched the wall behind it as well as the countertops around it. Furthermore, it burned through several Tupperware containers, leaving behind a melted plastic mess that produced a pungent scent. Fortunately, professional help is close at hand to assist you during your time of need.  

When SERVPRO arrives at your home, our IICRC-certified technicians can immediately begin to work. We can pull your stove away from the wall and out of the kitchen so we can thoroughly clean the space around it. Once we have used our advanced equipment to remove the fire damage, our techs can focus on administering various techniques to eliminate the foul odor that remains.  

SERVPRO can use a special priming paint to seal in odors and make sure that they cannot come from the scorched wall. Afterward, we can use tools such as thermal foggers or air scrubbers to tackle the airborne particles that can also cause the odor to remain stubbornly. Thermal foggers use a chemical solution that disperses into the air as a vapor and neutralizes the particles that cause the scent. Air scrubbers work similarly, pulling the air around them through a carbon-based filter and filtering out any particles that are causing the problem. Once we're sure that no foul scent remains behind, SERVPRO can leave your home confident that the fire feels "Like it never even happened."  

When fire damage leaves behind a foul malodor in your home, reach out for help immediately. Dial (970) 240-6970 to get in contact with SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride. No matter the time, our doors are open, and our technicians are ready to help.
