SERVPRO Technicians Use Powerful Deodorization Methods as Part of Fire Damage Restoration in Oakland

A fire causes serious problems, and the pungent odors that occur can make your home unlivable. This can happen even when the fire is small and quickly contained. Deodorizing is a vital part of SERVPRO’s fire restoration services.

What Steps Are Taken to Mitigate Odors from a Fire?

Any residence that requires fire damage restoration in Oakland is going to have lingering odors. SERVPRO’s fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) quickly take action to clean your home. They get to the source of the foul smells and begin clearing the noxious odors from your home. If the odors remain, they can cause issues such as:

  • Health problems
  • Compromised air quality
  • Ruined content
  • Making the house uninhabitable

Getting Your Home Smelling Sweet Again

The smells in a home after a fire are a result of chemical and natural odors blending. Our IICRC techs know how to treat these and other issues. When we arrive, we start by removing the source of the odor. Charred wood and burnt carpeting are examples. Smoke residue on surfaces can lead to strong smells, so cleaning and sanitizing all impacted surfaces comes next. We employ actions such as:

  • Chemical containment
  • Vapor odor control
  • Thermal foggers
  • Applying sealants

No homeowner should have to endure a lingering reminder of a fire. That is why our technicians strive to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”  For professional house fire clean up, smoke remediation, and fire damage restoration, contact SERVPRO of West Oakland at (510) 599-9300.
