How Do Professionals Take Care of Odor Problems After Commercial Fire Damage to Your Amherst Store?
Team SERVPRO Quickly Arrives to Tackle Damage at Your Store
One of the most significant problems after a fire incident to your store is the odor. Whether you own a garment store, a restaurant, a grocery store or any other business, if your establishment smells like smoke, it drives the customers away. Even after the cosmetic and structural restoration after fire damage, it is crucial for your business that your store does not smell of smoke and soot.
Thankfully, SERVPRO technicians can use some of the best equipment to have your store smelling like usual in no time after commercial fire damage in Amherst. We employ different methods to eliminate even the most potent odors after a fire incident. Deodorization is a multistep process involving the following steps.
Removal of the odor source
The best way to deal with the odor problems after a fire is to eliminate the source of the odor itself. SERVPRO Professionals can remove any charred material from the building in an attempt to eliminate the source of the odor. The burnt debris can continue to give off odors if they are not disposed of promptly.
The next step in the odor elimination process is to clean the surfaces with odor-causing residue on their surface. Cleaning is especially challenging in case of protein residue and wet smoke residue. Various cleaning techniques need to be employed to eliminate these residues in an attempt to remove the residue.
Recreation of the conditions that cause odor penetration
One of the reasons for deeper penetration of odor after a fire is the fact that the smoke can carry the odor causing particles deep into the pores of surfaces. To neutralize those odors, professionals use thermal foggers that create a vapor of a deodorant. This process takes the deodorant particles to the same place as the odor causing particles. The deeper, hidden odor-causing particles can lead to foul odor in your establishment driving customers out. So, it is necessary to use foggers to combat these.
Sealing the surfaces
If the odor removal is too expensive or impractical, the odor causing particles can be sealed by painting over them. Inaccessible ducts can also be often sealed to eliminate the odor after a fire incidence in your establishment.
