Fire Odors in a Home Can Come From Many Sources Like Unforeseen Kitchen Fires.
Kitchen fires often begin on the stove, causing the hood of the stove and the cabinetry to be charred by the fire.
One of the most common complaints we get from local homeowners about fire odors in their residences is that the odors may have remained in their homes for many years, sometimes since before they ever purchased their homes. Smoke odors can, depending on the volume and type of smoke in the building, take decades to fall to unnoticeable levels. Given that smoke odors can bother those in and around your home and potentially decrease property values, investing in a permanent deodorization treatment may be worth your time.
Fire damage in homes can come from many different sources and may pose unique challenges even to SERVPRO technicians certified in fire damage treatments by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Different types of smoke produce significantly different particles that may require variable mixtures of absorption agents, adsorption agents, and other odor-neutralizing chemicals to treat. Over the years, however, we have learned to treat fire odors from sources ranging from long-term tobacco use to large-scale house fires that can affect the entire building. Telling us over the phone what type of situation caused the odors can help us to prepare adequately for the work to come.
Some projects may pose additional difficulties due to the volume and spread of smoke particles throughout the home. Significant fires or long-term tobacco use can cause smoke odors to spread throughout the air vents in your home and lead to a more prolonged and extensive odor removal process. SERVPRO technicians also receiveIICRC certifications related to the cleaning of your home HVAC systems and can use this training to eliminate odors that might otherwise circulate around your home. We provide full and total coverage for your home when eliminating odors of any kind, leaving the place looking and smelling "Like it never even happened."
