Prevent Further Fire Damage From Striking Your Stockton Home With SERVPRO
Reducing Smoke Odors in Your Stockton Home
There are many instances in which the smell after a fire is much worse than the other effects in a Stockton home. With a fast response from first responders or fire suppression efforts by the homeowner, small blazes can get contained to a single room in many cases. What does not get contained, however, is the spread of the smoke and charring odors that accompany the disaster. Addressing these smoke odors can prove challenging without the right products and machines, and our SERVPRO professionals have a deep inventory of deodorization tools to help.
Fire damage in Stockton homes is something that many property owners have left to the expertise and the experience of professional restorers. Even with secondary effects like the smell of smoke, we have advanced techniques that can address these concerns right away. The faster that we can reduce or eliminate lingering odors in your property, the fewer materials get affected by the spread of these effects.
One of the standard tools used in the battle against lingering smoke odor is the thermal fogger. Because high heat scenarios can lead to a higher porosity in exposed materials, odor molecules can penetrate materials and contents more easily during a fire. Once the fire gets extinguished, and the materials begin to cool back down, these pores shrink and trap the odors inside. Thermal fogging produces that same expansion effect with heat and pressure, exposing these same materials and contents to a concentrated blast of our neutralizing compound.
Because of its dense chemical fog emission, this approach can penetrate soft materials like upholstery, clothing, and carpeting as well as addressing open areas. These units cannot address as broad of an area as some of the other deodorization and air purification equipment that our SERVPRO team uses, however, so we carefully choose the ideal times and places to use the thermal fogging units. For larger open areas, it is often more efficient to use ozone machines or hydroxyl generators with a broader range.
Deodorization is one of the most substantial challenges that our SERVPRO of Stockton faces after any fire loss incident. Even with smaller emergencies that can get contained to a specific area of your house, odor removal is a common staple to making fire loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” You can count on our team to help however you need by calling (209) 477-3090.
