Fire and Odor Damage in Your Montrose Residence Calls for Thorough Restoration
If your home has fire damage, then it may be smelling of smoke, and several rooms may be covered with soot. Soot can stain the walls, ceilings, and floors of your home. Smoke particles can travel to multiple rooms in your property, leaving bad odors that can linger for an extended period. It is essential to take care of this damage immediately.
To deal with fire and odor damage in your Montrose residence, you can work with a remediation company like SERVPRO. Smoke scents are stubborn and depending on how strong they are; you may need to use several cleaning methods to remove them. Keep in mind that if the smoke has permeated into draperies, carpets, and upholstered furniture, among other items, it may be necessary to replace them. Some products you may use to deal with the odors include:
It cuts through scents naturally. You can wipe down washable walls, floors, and furniture with white vinegar. Alternatively, place several bowls of vinegar around the rooms with smoke damage and leave them there for a few days.
This is a popular odor-reducing product that uses a chemical known as cyclodextrin to absorb odors. Spray the affected areas with Febreze can help minimize the smoke scent.
It is a well-known detoxifying agent, and also a natural odor absorbent. Place bowls of activated charcoal in powder form around affected rooms to absorb the odors.
To remove the odor permanently, you must deal with the source of the problem. This means washing all affected surfaces in your property. Soot settles in the tiniest of crevices. Our team has specialized tools that can get rid of all the soot particles.
To prevent permanent stains, our crew can wet clean washable materials or dry clean nonwashable materials. We clean the furniture and upholstery to get rid of soot. Our professionals can also clean your ductwork to remove the soot so that the HVAC system does not blow it back into the house.
Our SERVPRO crew can remove the odor using solvent-based thermal fog deodorizers. These are a blend of odor counteractants, fragrances, and aromatic phenolics in a solvent base. We apply them using thermal fogging equipment. We can also apply sealers on surfaces where odors remain after we have used other deodorization procedures. We apply sealers to the affected surfaces to encapsulate remaining odor residues.
