Smoke odors are a common concern for Malden properties after structure fires.

Even with the fire extinguished, the work to begin restoring and cleaning up the property is only starting. As traumatic as these disasters might be, early mitigation actions can have far-reaching impacts on the full restoration process. Our responding fire restorers prioritize choosing the most direct route to eliminate lingering smoke and fire damage effects like airborne contaminants, soot particles, and strong malodors.

Air Filtration Steps

Fire damage restoration for Malden homes is not complete without addressing the harsh odors that combustion can leave behind. One of our SERVPRO team's methods to reduce the severity of these strong smells is air filtration equipment. HEPA filters trap airborne contaminants, smoke particles, and other aerosolized debris that contribute to strong malodors in the environment.

Surface Cleaning Reduces Odors

Another strategy that our SERVPRO team can implement to reduce the severity of present smells is surface cleaning. Soot and smoke residues are formidable obstacles to cleaning and restoring fire-damaged properties but removing these soils can also lessen smoke odor strength. Some methods to remove soot include:

  • Dry Solvents
  • Cleaning Products
  • Soda/Media Blasting

Neutralizing Odor Compounds

Once reductions and cleaning have taken place to limit the severity of present smoke and burning odors, our SERVPRO team works to finish the job. Our inventory features multiple deodorization tools and devices, but among the most powerful of these are the ozone generators that produce unstable molecules that bond with odor compounds and neutralize them.

Understanding the needed actions to remove harsh malodors from a fire-damaged property after a disaster is a critical element of full-service restoration and recovery. Our qualified SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team has FSRT and OCT certifications to manage fire and odor damages. Call us today at (781) 665-6396.
