SERVPRO Equipment and Skills Eliminate Odors After a Fire

For fire damage repair and restoration teams, there are many challenges. The homeowner is putting the future of their property in the hands of an outside service, so the stakes are high. No matter how severe the fire, it is our job to salvage as much as possible and try and bring your house back to a safe and habitable condition.

It is a complex process, and it does not end with damage caused by the flames. In fact, smoke and soot are just as destructive. They leave oily stains on walls and ceilings, as well as producing foul odors which stick to carpets soft furnishings. To repair fire damage in Coon Rapids homes, an approach which deals with both odor and the burnt items is needed.

However, the battle to eliminate stubborn odors is not always what it seems. Keep reading to find out why imaginary smells can cause a big problem for homeowners.

What Are Imaginary Odors?
It might sound strange to talk of ‘imaginary’ odors, particularly about fire damage. Clearly, fires do cause some very real and awfully pungent smells. At SERVPRO, we are trained in the most advanced deodorization techniques so that we can eliminate them quite quickly. The use of deodorizing chemicals is highly effective because they interact directly with the offending particles in the air.

We often find that even after a successful deodorization period, some homeowners still struggle with unpleasant odors. This can happen even if there is no evidence of smoke or soot residue left on the property. It occurs as a result of a phenomenon called heightened awareness. To put it simply, fire can have such a big impact on people that they find it hard to convince their senses that things are back to normal.

How Do Restoration Experts Remove These "imaginary" Odors?
The answer is simpler than you might think. All it takes is the right support. Most of the time, just taking a moment to guide homeowners through the fire damage restoration process is enough to put their mind at ease. This is why, at SERVPRO, we will not leave until you are completely satisfied. It is your home, and you decide when you are comfortable and pleased with the results of our work.
