Handling the Big Odors After Small-Scale Fire Damage in Tucson
The fire caused by the toaster having an unnoticed frayed wire was small and put out quickly, but the soot, smoke, and odor it left behind after the fact remained. SERVPRO is available 24/7 to come out and handle the cleanup from your kitchen disaster.
Cleaning up fire damage in your Tuscon home can be a three-fold project. First, your SERVPRO technician ascertains if there is water damage as well and address that issue immediately. Any damp walls left are dried using the most expedient methods, often air movers do the trick, rapidly drying the surfaces and inhibiting any secondary damage from extended wetness or mold in drywall, counters or cabinets.
Next, the physical evidence of the fire needs addressing. The technician is trained to determine if the scale of the damage and the specific type of cleaning that the situation requires. For a small scale fire extinguished quickly, the cleanup usually involves removing soot and residue from the local area with specialized dry sponges and cleaning products that specifically target soot and smoke residue. We also inspect items on countertops and cabinets to see if they have sustained damage or need cleaning.
The final step we take is to remove any lingering odor left by the fire. Your SERVPRO technician inspects the room where the fire occurred and also any adjacent rooms to determine how widespread the odor has traveled. One of the most precise ways to treat smoke odors utilizes thermal fogging. This method recreates both the heat and pressure expelled during a fire and effectively penetrates porous surfaces with a deodorizing agent. Another method used for odor control may be the use of gels or pellets, depending on the level of odor removal that your situation requires.
The technicians work as quickly as possible to restore your home to its preloss condition. Even small fires can leave significant odors in a home; it's a good idea to get professional-level help turning back the clock on the condition of your room.
