Tuscon Fire Damage Restoration You Can Count On
Deodorizing your Attic after Fire Damage in your Tucson Home
Hot air rises faster than cool air. In a fire, smoke residues created by burning materials can rapidly travel through the home moving upwards into clean air pockets. This can lead to long-term issues in the home, mainly where odors are concerned. Finding the source of an odor can be challenging but, we often find that if a stubborn odor has remained long after standard deodorization procedure, the source could be from your attic.
Attics are typically confined spaces which can make restoration after fire damage in Tucson properties a difficulty. SERVPRO can assist by removing any charred remains from home and applying water-based deodorizers to mask unpleasant smells. Unfortunately, this process is not always enough where attic spaces are concerned, and we may need to access your loft space to assess rafters and insulation.
The problem stems from air pressure created by fires. High air-pressure can cause porous materials like insulation to absorb smoke damage. SERVPRO always work on the principle of restoring over replacing; however, in high-pressure fires insulation may not be salvageable. In circumstances like these, your technician must remove the affected insulation and dispose of it safely. We can replace these materials as part of the service.
The second structural component that may be the cause of an unpleasant smoke odor is your attic rafters. Where there are only light smoke deposits, we can use dry brushing techniques finished with a deodorant coating. If the rafters show signs of substantial damages, SERVPRO can deploy sandblasting equipment that can remove charred elements along with the odor-causing component and refinish afterward.
Deodorization is as important an aspect of fire damage as removing the visible signs. Often thick odors can leave an unpleasant reminder of the event as well as affecting your indoor air-quality. We can mobilize technicians with IICRC qualifications in odor control to help deal with this issue on your behalf.
