Chesterfield Smoke Damage

4/9/2020 (Permalink)

After a fire, smoke can linger and damage the items throughout your home. If your home has a smoke odor, you should take steps to eliminate it effectively and quickly. Removing the smell of smoke is challenging because it can affect everything! Removing the scent requires specialized cleaning equipment. 

It is important to trust a fire restoration company like SERVPRO of Chesterfield and SERVPRO of Tri-Cities Plus to remove fire damage and smoke odor from your Portsmouth home. Our professional experts can assess the situation and select the most appropriate remediation method while ensuring safety. We use state-of-the-art equipment like ozone generators to eradicate smoke smells. These machines generate ozone, which consists of three oxygen atoms. Ozone reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and eliminate the scents. 

After the deodorization process, ozone returns to the normal oxygen molecule quickly, without leaving residues. We also use high-velocity fans to ventilate the area until the smell of ozone is gone. 

Another option is for our technicians use hydroxyl generators. These generators use ultraviolet light to produce hydroxyl, which is useful for removing fire damage odors. Hydroxyl generators do not affect the health of plants, pets, and humans. We can also seal porous surfaces that have absorbed smoke such as unfinished, raw wood. At times, odor remains in confined areas after the deodorization process is complete. In such a situation, our technicians can ventilate the confined space, place an activated unit in it overnight or thermal-fog the whole structure if necessary.

If your home has fire damage odor, SERVPRO of Chesterfield and SERVPRO of Tri-Cities Plus can assist you in eliminating it with 30+ years experience in the industry.
