Removing Odors After Commercial Fire Damage For Businesses In Andover

Small-fires can often be contained easily enough, although the residues and odor left behind by smoke can make your business an unpleasant environment for your customers. Scrubbing away at thick, or oily, smoke residues can be counter-intuitive, spreading the affected area and causing further damage. Before cleaning and restoring your business, it is crucial to pre-test the type of smoke and soot left behind.

Dealing with commercial fire damage in Andover is a job best left to the professionals. At SERVPRO our technicians are trained in an IIRC approved center to learn the way smoke behaves. By learning the types, characteristics, and behaviors of smoke, we can provide a better service to the businesses in our communities.

No two fires are the same. The temperature of the fire, materials burned and the texture of the surfaces it comes into contact with are all contributing factors to the staining left behind. Wet smoke, created by burning synthetic materials, can leave behind a thick, oily residue as well as a powerful and unpleasant odor.

At SERVPRO we have the expertise and equipment to remedy your business. In most cases, this can be by wet cleaning the visible areas of damage. In other cases, we may use abrasive cleaning measures provided the surfaces are hardened and non-porous. Smoke travels by moving upward toward clean air. By working with this knowledge, we can help to find areas where smoke deposits reside undetected.

When it comes to clearing odors, our team can first look for the source. Air pockets or ventilation ducts are particularly at risk of smoke deposits. Using extendable cleaning equipment we can reach areas to rid your business of odorous staining and markings.

Once a SERVPRO project manager is satisfied that all areas of smoke build up have been removed and restored we can begin making your business habitable for your customers. Using powerful Ozone generators, industrial foggers and desiccant dehumidifiers in combination can help to neutralize lingering odors for good. Leaving your store, clean, fresh and ready for business.
