Our Experts Arrive Right Away To Restore Your Santa Ana Home After Fire Damage
Dealing with Fire Cleanup in Santa Ana
Even after a relatively minor appliance fire, the cleanup can be extensive. Removing damaged contents and cleaning soot-stained upholstery becomes a considerable task. On top of that, smoke and soot residue has a way of permeating throughout the home into every nook and cranny, making it virtually impossible to eradicate on your own.
If you find yourself experiencing lingering smoke odors during fire cleanup in your Santa Ana home, contact the SERVPRO fire restoration team for assistance. They investigate and remove the source of the smell while creating a long-term plan to eradicate it for good.
The first phase of controlling smoke odor is to contain it. SERVPRO technicians spray a chemical deodorizer such as the specially formulated Smoke Deodorizer #302, using a pump-up sprayer to distribute it onto the odor-causing material creating a barrier to slow down or stop the odor molecules from vaporizing into the air.
The second phase is vapor odor control to counteract the remaining uncontained vapors using either deodorant vapors products that come in either granular form or bead form. These odors counteract products, attacking the odor molecules as they escape into the air and are especially useful after fire damage.
The third phase consists of thermal fogging. Solvent-based deodorants disperse through the air using fogging equipment. These solvents attack smoke odors by replicating smoke to penetrate challenging-to-reach-places. Thermal fogging requires safety precautions and usually requires residents to leave home until fogging and ventilation are complete.
Eliminating Fire and Smoke Odors
Temperature and humidity levels within your home directly impact the deodorization of unwanted smells. Odor molecules can vaporize quickly, and high humidity levels make the odors dissolve, traveling easily to the nose. Days, weeks, or even months when the weather becomes warmer, it is possible for smoke odors to resurface, requiring further deodorization. Odors in the humid California summers tend to be stronger than the odors during the dryer winter months.
To effectively deodorize a structure, the SERVPRO team creates a customized plan for your specific situation using the three phases of smoke odor control while recognizing the possibility of odor resurfacing later due to temperature and humidity changes.Contact SERVPRO of Santa Ana South | SERVPRO of Santa Ana North for assistance anytime, 24/7, at (714) 558-7772.
