Where Can Homeowners Get Help After a Fire in Falcon Heights?

SERVPRO Provides Fire Damage Restoration and Mitigates Smoke Damage in Falcon Heights

One of the major problems after any size fire is the pungent odors left behind. Our crew is trained to know what to do to remove smoke and soot residue. We first removed charred material and anything unsalvageable. We then move on to cleaning the property.

Getting Your Home Back to Smelling Clean & Fresh

Fire damage restoration in Falcon Heights is a detailed process. Microscopic particles spread throughout the house carrying strong smells with them. These particles are tiny enough to embed themselves on the surface material. Porous materials, such as drapes, are easily penetrated. Professional fire damage restoration is needed in Falcon Heights to deal with smoke residue successfully.

Basic Deodorization Process

What makes deodorization complicated is that the odors do not all come from one source. Because of this, different cleaning agents get used. But there is a fundamental process we use when dealing with powerful smells:

  • Remove the odor source and debris –We begin this by removing charred debris. Getting to the root cause of the smell is crucial.
  • Clean surfaces with odor-causing residues on them– Small particles can continue to give off strong smells if not adequately cleaned. 
  • Recreate the process that caused penetration –Distributing a deodorizer like a process that caused the odor can help. Smoke spreads through the air, so using a “fog” to deodorize can be effective.
  • Seal surfaces exposed to malodors- In certain situations where the odor-causing particles cannot get completely removed, the exterior may need sealing.
