Techniques for Fire Odor Removal in Phoenix Properties

No one wants to be reminded of that time there was a fire in their kitchen; every single time they enter the room. Fire damage can come in many forms, and unless professionally remediated, unpleasant scents can remain in the home.

Fire odor removal in a Phoenix home affected by a small fire in the kitchen is frequently a problem homeowners have attempted to cover up on their own. A forgotten pan on the stove or turkey in the oven may not have left much in the way of visible residues, but a lot in the way of stubborn odors. That is because when proteins such as meat or eggs burn, the fats turn into a fine mist, bonding with the soot particles and penetrating porous surfaces.

Regular household cleaners do not penetrate deeply enough into the surfaces to reach the odor-causing particles and the longer they remain, the more embedded the odor becomes with the possibility of spreading to other areas. SERVPRO technicians are certified in Odor Control and use a multi-layered approach for protein-based odors.

Our professionally formulated cleaners are designed to penetrate deeply into surfaces. Our technicians use both wet and dry sponge methods to ensure that all affected areas of fire damage in the kitchen are addressed. The HVAC duct system is also inspected to determine if the odor was pulled through the ducts and they are cleaned if necessary and suggest a new filter installed.

When more robust methods of odor control are required to eliminate lingering protein odors, SERVPRO technicians may contain the kitchen using poly-barriers and set up air scrubbers fitted with HEPA filters to capture motes so tiny they cannot be seen with the naked eye. Heat removal of odors through fogging is another effective way to neutralize odors we use. A solvent is heated and spread over the area in a fog form, overtaking and changing odors at the molecular level.

SERVPRO of Phoenix is ready to help you remove fire odor in your home with our professional equipment and expertise. Call (480) 503-2090 for 24/7 and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff right now.
