Odor Removal Is Crucial After A Fire In Your Fort Collins Home

Removing odors relies on having access to the right equipment and the training to understand how smoke travels.

Controlling Odors After Fire Damage In Fort Collins Properties

Different materials burn in different ways. Natural fibers like wood produce a light dust-like soot which can spread quickly but is also relatively easy to remove. On the other hand, synthetic materials which are commonplace in the modern home can produce wet smoke, a sticky substance that has an odor which lingers long after the initial impact of a fire has been controlled and contained. These odors can leave an unpleasant reminder of the fire itself and need to be removed using professional, industrial-grade equipment.

Property owners suffering from fire damage in Fort Collins rely on an educated approach from their restoration service to get the job done. Applying the wrong techniques can spread soot deposits around causing further issues. At SERVPRO we train our technicians to detect different types of smoke and teach them the most effective methods of restoration of each kind. Our experts believe this makes us one of the premier options for private residents and commercial property managers.

When materials burn, the essence of that material is transferred into the smoke which can then travel around a property, moving into air pockets. As the smoke comes into contact with surfaces, it deposits toxins, carbon, and other particles. SERVPRO use technicians that hold IICRC certificates in odor control to ensure that no unpleasant reminders of the fire remain after service.

Removing odors relies on having access to the right equipment and the training to understand how smoke travels. The first port of call is finding sources of odor which can reside in air ducts or floor spaces. Thoroughly removing these pockets ensures odors cannot return. SERVPRO uses industrial grade foggers to deodorize a property. Using water-based or chemical solvents that find and neutralize smoke odor particles, making the damage “Like it never even happened.”
