What? Smelly Odors after a Vancouver House Fire! Call SERVPRO for a Fast Cleanup and Restoration

How Odor Control Technicians Can Help with Fire Damage in Vancouver

Most homeowners experience a property fire at some point. It is rare that these events are catastrophic or require extensive remodeling and general contractors. Still, even a minor fire can be an inconvenience as well as an emotionally distressing experience. Getting back to your everyday life may be difficult as significant amounts of cleaning may be necessary as well as removing unpleasant reminders of the event by tackling stubborn odors.

We are a restoration company that specializes in helping residents overcome fire damage in Vancouver. We arrive once firefighting procedures are complete and aim to mitigate losses in the property as much as possible. Soot and smoke deposits can be set into materials when wet, so responding by using SERVPRO technicians could help you to restore rather than replace furniture and possessions.

In removing soots and smoke residues, SERVPRO may need to establish a quarantine zone. Although harmful monoxides dissipate within the first hour, the type of agitative cleaning methods used in fire restoration could cause odors or soots to become airborne and spread to unaffected areas of the home. By using physical barriers like plastic sheeting, we can prevent this from happening. Also, creating a smaller drying zone allows us to work more efficiently during service.

The odor of synthetic or natural materials can linger long after a fire is extinguished. SERVPRO can use odor control technicians (OCT) for fire damage cleanups to tackle stubborn odors. The general principle in dealing with unpleasant smells is to recreate how the odor was spread using deodorant solvent.

In a fire, the odor is created from the burning of materials at high temperature and spread through the smoke. We vaporize solvent using thermal foggers that spread throughout your home in the same way smoke does. The matching dispersal method ensures that deodorant enters challenging to reach cavities or airways like your ventilation system.

Another method, even during the cleanup and demolition, if needed, is to place hydroxyl generators to neutralize at a molecular level the airborne and static particulates causing the malodors.
