Fire Restoration Includes Odor Removal

Odors are often one of the final steps in fire-damaged residences' restoration and recovery process. One of the focuses of this process must be the management and ultimate removal of harsh malodors. 

Counteractant Approaches

Before much of Melrose homes' fire restoration can be completed, like deodorization, SERVPRO professionals must work to reduce the severity of these conditions. Counteractant products in our inventory help to absorb and trap odor compounds or reduce airborne contaminants that can increase malodor concerns. These tools include HEPA air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and absorbent beads and granules.  

Surface Cleaning

When soot damage and smoke solids are a concern on surfaces and building materials throughout the structure, odors can be amplified. Removing some of these residues and soil deposits can reduce the severity of malodors. Solvents and detergents are the best approaches for wet surface cleaning.

Tools for Post-Fire Deodorization

Cleaning and counteractant products can help to reduce the severity of trapped odors and harsh migrating smells from combustion. We have several approaches and tools that can significantly aid in this process, which can include: 

  • Fogging – Wet fogging uses chemicals that can bond with odor molecules in the environment and cause them to fall as precipitation to surfaces for cleaning.
  • Environmental Cleaning – UV deodorization utilizes the hydroxyl machines in our inventory for environmental cleaning to reduce and remove harsh malodors. 
  • Oxidation – This approach creates unstable molecules that can bond with odor compounds in the environment to neutralize them.

There are many approaches to managing harsh smells and malodors after a fire. We have potent deodorants and neutralizing products in our inventory, making our SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team a trusted choice to help after a disaster. Give us a call at (781) 665-6396.
