Bermuda Run Homes Can Benefit From Thorough Deodorization Practices After a Fire. 

While soot removal and content cleaning are both vital elements of house fire clean up, fire damage can also require deodorization and smoke odor removal. Smoke remediation of fire damage can involve multiple tools and practices by our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) accredited by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) Our professionals can help with:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire damaged homes
  • Fire and smoke damage

What Tools Are Necessary for Smoke Remediation and Fire Odor Removal? 

Choosing the right tool for the smoke odor present in a Bermuda Run house after extinguishment is critical to getting the task done efficiently. Our SERVPRO team recognizes that the effectiveness of deodorization practices changes with varying conditions, so multiple instruments and devices are often needed after fire damage to remove lingering noxious smells. Some of the most common of these include:

  • Thermal/ULV Foggers – Fire damage like strong smoke odors after combustion often can get mostly quelled and neutralized with the production of mobile thermal foggers and ULV units. These superheat or cool deodorization products into a mist or vapor for broad coverage and penetration into porous materials that can trap smoke.
  • Hydroxyl Generators – Unlike neutralizing odors, hydroxyl machines eliminate standing smells in your home by pulling away hydrogen atoms and dismantling the chemical compounds that make up harsh odors. Using UV radiation, these tools can both clean environments and deodorize. 
  • Ozone Machines – By creating a chemical compound known as ozone, these machines send these unstable molecular structures into the damaged environment with the understanding that smoke odors can molecularly bond with these compounds. Once this chemical process occurs, the new compound is odorless and neutralized.
  • HEPA Filtration Air Scrubbers – These are more of an honorable mention to the line of deodorization products and instruments available to our FSRT professionals. HEPA products are capable of capturing microscopic particles circulating in the environment, which can dramatically impact the smoke odor severity and the ease of fire damage and smoke remediation. 

Are Other Actions Necessary for Fire Damage Smoke Remediation in Bermuda Run?

Fire damage often requires several layers of recovery to thoroughly remove, especially with soil elimination and replacing affected materials in fire damaged homes. With a general contractor license, we provide numerous services to overcome persistent odor concerns, such as controlled demolition and smoke odor removal with the reinstallation of building materials.
