Can Fire-Caused Odors Be Eliminated from Residential Structures?

In West Lynn homes, SERVPRO can eliminate, or cover-up, malodors. Our technicians are highly trained for cleaning property, removing odor-producing damage, and other tasks needed to recreate a pleasant, healthy environment after any type of fire in the home.

What Steps Do Technicians Take to Restore Homes?

To eliminate or reduce the effects of fire damage in West Lynn homes, our teams perform the following steps:

  • Remove the odor source debris – Items damaged physically by the fire exude malodor particles. Technicians remove every item scorched by the fire which greatly reduces the amount of odor-causing particles and also the number of chemical deodorizers needed in the home.
  • Clean surfaces of malodor particles – Even a small amount of particles transported by the smoke can generate malodors, so technicians clean every possible affected surface at the point of origin, and everywhere that smoke from the fire could have carried odor-causing particles.
  • Recreate the “fire” – Some odor particles can penetrate deeply into the wood, fabrics, and other property. To eliminate them, technicians can create a cloud of deodorizing particles that penetrate as deeply as the malodors to bind with and eliminate them.

Is It Possible to Block Odors So Technicians Do Not Have to Use Demolition?

Yes. If SERVPRO team leaders determine that demolition and replacement are too difficult, expensive, or not necessary, then sealing surfaces is the preferred option. For walls and ceilings, technicians use paint and primer with a chemical sealant that blocks malodors from being released into the residence. For air ducts, they spray a sealant over every reachable surface to block malodors.

To begin removing odors and other fire restoration procedures for your home, call SERVPRO of Saugus, West Lynn at (978) 744-0409 today. Our teams are here to return your home to its original state and make the damage disappear "Like it never even happened."
