Smoke and Fire From a Home After Damage is Tough--Not For SERVPRO Though
While many effects linger throughout your home after a fire occurs, homeowners do not have the resources and advanced equipment to handle removing and restoring them on their own. Our professionals offer effective and fast service following a fire, and that includes restoring and combatting threats to the indoor air quality including smoke damage, contaminants, and a persistent harsh odor.
When it comes to removing the effects of smoke and fire odor from your Valparaiso property, time is of the essence to get the right trained professionals to your home to get the processes started. Recovering from a fire gets more difficult the longer that you wait to secure restoration services, so it is important to reach out to our SERVPRO professionals as promptly as possible once the first responders and firefighters have extinguished the blaze and secured the property.
Smoke damages can affect your home in many ways from a residue or powdery film on contents and surfaces throughout the affected areas to the lingering odor that can become embedded into surfaces and materials as pores open more in the excessive heat of a fire. In many ways, these pungent odors can get concealed in the materials themselves and not re-emerge until specific atmospheric or temperature conditions release them. That is why professional cleanup is vital, as we can identify these problems and address them during our restoration.
We have many advanced tools and equipment that can help us to eliminate odors from the recent fire in your home permanently. For fire recovery, we often rely on our hydroxyl generators and our thermal foggers for deodorization. They can both work in different ways to neutralize odor molecules and leave no discernable scent behind. Unfortunately, a situation known as phantosmia has no solution from our SERVPRO crew.
While there might be many concerns that come with restoring your home after a fire, many find that the lingering odor can make comfortable living a challenge. Let our SERVPRO of Porter County emergency response team help you through all facets of fire restoration by calling (219) 476-1883.
