Commercial Fire Odor Restoration Process for Your Northampton Business
A fire in your Northampton bakery can prove to be quite costly. Plus, the longer you wait to repair the damage, the costs rise even higher. The settled smoke and soot are acidic and continue to create additional damage until they are cleaned up. Another aspect is the odors left behind after a fire.
Commercial fire odor restoration for your Northampton business is essential. You need to use an expert in fire damage restoration to ensure that the odors are properly handled. At SERVPRO, our technicians are specially trained and know what to do, and most importantly, what not to do.
The first step in deodorization of your residence after a fire is to remove the source of the odor. Charred structural materials and debris which is contaminated with smoke residues continue to give off odors of smoke if they are not removed.
SERVPRO staff can then clean surfaces which have odor-causing residues on them. These small particles keep generating odors until we clean them. We check adjacent rooms from where the fire started as well, as the odors can penetrate through walls and travel to other spaces. The whole structure at times plus the contents might need to be cleaned to remove the smoke odors entirely.
Next, we distribute a deodorizer to the affected surfaces in a manner that is similar to how the smoke penetrated the surface. A deodorizing fog or smoke is most effective in this case. Using deodorization methods which replicate the nature of smoke are very useful in smoke and fire damage deodorization.
Lastly, we may need to seal surfaces that were exposed to malodors. It might not be required in all circumstances, but it can be needed for situations that have severe damage. If odor removal would be too costly or impractical, sealing could eliminate the problem. Two common sealing situations are sealing duct surfaces in air handling systems that are inaccessible or painting walls. The building is then ventilated to ensure the odors are gone.
