After the Fire, the Fire and Odor Damage Removal Process in Boynton Beach

Fire damage is devastating and causes a tremendous loss for homeowners. The final step in the process is odor control once the restoration services complete.

SERVPRO technicians bring numerous applications to properties requiring fire and odor damage removal in Boynton Beach. No two fire loss scenes are alike, and each requires different methods to remove the odor effectively. 

Mild Odor Treatments

In some cases, after the removal of charred building materials and discarding of fire loss contents in the home, there are still residual smoke odors remaining. SERVPRO uses cleaners such as their exclusive Orange which leaves behind a fresh citrus scent, and the use of time-release gel pellets is another form of light odor control.

Testing Before Odor Control

Some types of odor control applications have the potential to degrade rubber or cause discoloration. Before performing any treatments, SERVPRO technicians test items before proceeding to ensure there are no potential issues. 

Professional Odor Removal Equipment

SERVPRO technicians have several different types of equipment to use on pungent fire odors that do not respond to hand cleaning or milder treatment methods. Tools such as hydroxyl generators are safe and neutralize airborne odor-causing molecules using UV (ultraviolet) light much like that emitted by the Sun. Thermal fogging is another solution technicians turn to for post-fire odor control. This application entails the use of an odor-neutralizing solvent heated to temperatures that cause it to become a heated fog. It behaves much like smoke did during the fire and quickly penetrates porous objects and gets rid of deeply entrenched odors. 

Prepping for Reconstruction

Before any reconstruction occurs in a property, technicians ensure that there is an odor-free base to build upon. Painted surfaces may appear clean but still emit odors. If other odor control methods are not successful in eradicating odors, an application of sealant inhibits any further smoke odors.
