As the process begins, an inspector examines structural property like drywall panels, framing, and other support structures. Where needed specialist can demolish and remove these items as well.
Next, SERVPRO team members work to remove residues and the odors they exude. They first establish fans in the home to increase circulation and force out air containing malodors. As the fans turn, specialists use a wide variety of cleaning agents to break up residues and remove them from affected surfaces. For thick layers or residues on surfaces like rock and some marble, they use a stiff brush or a powered agitator to break the residues free.
If there are still odors in the home after we finish residue removal, it may be necessary to introduce a counteragent. For mild odors, it may require spraying surfaces to eliminate them. If the odor penetrated structural property like ceiling beams, specialists use a fogger machine to generate a cloud of particles that can penetrate as deeply as the odor to bind with and eliminate them.
