Why SERVPRO Relies On Advanced Techniques During Fire Damage Odor Removal In Watertown

It is common to experience bad odors in your property after a fire incident. The type or strength of the odor depends on the kind of materials consumed by the fire. Fires involving synthetic materials like plastics or natural ones such as proteins leave a bad stench all over the property, even in sections unaffected by the flames. We offer professional cleanup and deodorization services to restore your Watertown property to its preloss state. Our IICRC certified FSRT, Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians, utilize different techniques to achieve this.

The process of fire damage odor removal in Watertown involves different steps. Identifying the source of the odor is crucial before taking other steps because as long as the source is present, any other deodorization measure is not likely to work. Burnt residues produce most of the odor. Our SERVPRO technicians remove all unsalvageable materials from the house and clean salvageable ones eliminating most of the odor sources.

The smoke residues deposited in different parts of the house can prolong the presence of bad odor in the house after the blaze. Because heat opens up pores in materials and some of the particles of smoke residue are tiny, they reach deep into materials. The selected method of cleaning or deodorization must reach these residues to be effective. Our SERVPRO technicians are skilled in different deodorization procedures including fogging which allows the deodorizer in vapor form so that it can penetrate the material just like the smoke residues causing the odor.

Sometimes, the agents causing the odor might not be visible. This outcome is common in grease or protein fire. In such cases, cleaning the entire property helps remove all residues left on surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians focus attention close to the source of the fire first. In case of a grease fire, we do a thorough cleaning to the stove, vent hood, countertops, vent filter, cabinets, walls and ceilings in the kitchen. After finishing with the areas close to the source, we proceed to the rest of the house.

With help from SERVPRO of Jefferson County, it is easy to eliminate bad odors. You can reach us at (315) 777-8377 any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
