How Our Specialists Handle Fire And Odor Damage In Your Santa Ana Home
Steps For Dealing With Fire And Odor Damage In Santa Ana Homes
In the aftereffects of a fire, it is often necessary to replace the destroyed structures and contents and clean salvageable items. Smoke, soot, odor, and the chemicals and water that firefighters use could damage the items that remain. Immediate attention helps minimize destruction.
Even if the fire happened in a single room such as the living room, soot, smoke, and odors could have traveled all over the home, affecting drapes, upholstery, carpets, clothing and other possessions. To repair and recover your Santa Ana home after fire and odor damage, you can enlist the services of SERVPRO franchise professionals. We can clean the smoke and soot from floors, ceilings, walls, furniture, and clothing, and remove the smoky odor.
The smoke smell can linger for days or weeks, and the more time it has to seep into your carpets, furniture, draperies, and walls, the harder it is to remove. One thing we do to deodorize a home is removing items that have smoke odors like upholstered furniture, mattresses, box springs, and stuffed animals. We also remove any debris and charred items if you and your insurance adjuster approve the removal of such materials.
Our SERVPRO odor control technician (OCT) can use vacuum cleaners or dry chemical sponges to clean any surface containing soot residues. After cleaning, we perform air scrubbing or ventilation to eliminate odor molecules from indoor air. We usually combine multiple deodorization techniques to ensure successful neutralization of odors. Sometimes, we apply odor counteractant pellets or beads to the floor to control vapor odors. In other situations, our technicians use ultra-low volume foggers to disperse deodorants into the home.
After deodorizing a home, we assess if any odors remain and if so, we perform additional odor removal procedures. Cleaning household textiles thoroughly is also critical for eliminating smoke odors. We offer cloth and textile cleaning as part of our restoration process. We can take items such as clothing, draperies, and blankets with lingering smoke odors to our facility and clean them using our Esporta wash system.
