How SERVPRO Removes Smoke Odors From Fire Damaged Apartments in Telluride

6/11/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot from this fire traveled throughout the structure. Fortunately, SERVPRO had the experience and training to restore this home.

Dealing with Big Odor Issues from Minor Fire Damage in Your Telluride Apartment

Different kinds of fire cause various types of smoke to fill the area around the flames. Even smoldering papers that you catch before they completely ignite can cause smoke to spread into other areas, including other rooms in your apartment in Telluride. A small fire can leave you continuously detecting the offensive odor of smoke.

While the scents of a delicious home-cooked meal seem to fade away quickly, the odors from fire damage in Telluride do not disappear the same way. Instead, hotter days during the summer can make the odor much more intense, and increases in humidity levels have the same effect. SERVPRO's restoration specialists receive comprehensive training so they can earn a variety of certificates from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), ensuring we know how to mitigate all types of situations.

With odors that arise after something in your dwelling burns, we focus on the source of the odor. Because all odors come from a physical substance or one kind of another, we work on physical elimination first. Cleaning surfaces can remove a substantial number of the soot particles that cause you to smell strong smoke odors in your apartment. Dry sponges remove dry, powdery soot on flat surfaces while brushes and small utensils reach into grooves and deeply recessed areas.

We clean the contents in your home with ultrasonic baths and unique cleansers in highly efficient, super-sized washing machines, depending on the materials we are restoring. While our work does alleviate some of the odors this way, we know that odors can persist.

Thermal fogging can eliminate odor-causing substances in places we cannot access because the heated vapor acts like smoke, getting into the same places invaded during the fire. Once there, the chemical deodorizers bond with foreign substances and make them too heavy for air currents to lift them back into the air. Using an air scrubber helps clean the air of any already suspended particles. When odors linger, we can mask this temporarily with gel packs placed in safe locations. Other odor-fighting agents work wonders when we apply them to upholstery, carpets, and other textiles.

You need not worry about upsetting your landlord when you have SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride partnering with you after fire damage leaves your apartment smelling horrific. We serve those living in Pitkin, Almont, and Crested Butte, in addition to other nearby locations. Contact us at (970) 240-6970, any day of the week, including holidays.
