Fire Damage Remediation in Park Forest: This is What Professionals Do
How SERVPRO Fights Fire Odor Combined with Fire Damage in Park Forest Home
The majority of fire damage mitigations are not for full house losses. In many cases, it is a portion of a room that was affected. Which can lead to a mistake many homeowners make, when they self-clean the remnants of the fire and think the odor is something they have to just live with.
When SERVPRO handles fire damage in a Park Forest home, we address all levels of fire damage, the visible charred contents, smoke residues and the invisible components odors from soot that cannot be seen but make their presence known until professionally mitigated.
Containment around the damaged area prevents any further spread of residues or odor. Our technicians remove damaged building materials off premises as they add to the odor problem. If there is water or excess moisture from extinguishing the fire, extraction happens as quickly as possible, so the process of drying the structure with our air movers to pull moisture from walls, floors and contents.
Ventilation is a crucial factor in the remediation of fire loss and eliminating odor. SERVPRO technicians run ventilation equipment during cleanup from a fire loss. We have equipment such as negative air machine which is beneficial for capturing odor-causing microscopic particulates and removing them from the area a vacuum-effect.
The removal of smoke and soot remains a keystone in avoiding lingering odors. Once the room has dried, our technicians wipe down all surfaces using cleaning methods applicable to the type of residues left by the fire. For example, synthetic materials such as plastic housings of electronics or rubber covers over cords tend to leave greasy films that require a wet sponge technique to clean with our professional-grade cleaning formulas.
If any odors remain after the application of other treatments, our certified odor control technicians have additional methods to eliminate odors in both building materials and contents at the molecular level, so we leave the home in its preloss condition.
