Odor Removal After a Home Fire

Fires leave a pungent odor and the smell will linger for months if not dealt with quickly and decisively. It doesn’t matter if the fire is large or small, the stench will remain. To fully appreciate the services of a restoration and remediation company, it’s important to understand the processes that take place during a fire.

Burning building materials don’t burn up completely. A fire emits smoke that carries soot. The soot is the unburned, miniscule particles too small to see with the naked eye, unless there’s a build-up. Soot is lightweight and easily dispersed throughout the home. It can infiltrate the smallest of cracks and crevices, bringing with it the unpleasant fire odor.

Soot contains toxic chemicals and carcinogens known to cause cancer. Some of those substances are arsenic, chromium and cadmium. Breathing in soot lodges those particulates into the lungs and they will be dispersed throughout the body. Soot has been linked to short and long-term effects that include respiratory illness, heart attacks and premature death.

Remediation and restoration professionals have the tools and expertise to remove odors from a wide variety of items. The company will have an on-site adjuster that will work directly with a client’s insurance company to make repairs and restore any salvageable items. The experts will inventory and pack any items that can be saved and transport them to where they’ll undergo an ozone treatment. Items will be cleaned, even electronics, to leave them smelling clean and looking great.

The company will ensure that soot is removed from the home and that floors and other affected materials are restored – or removed and replaced. All contents will be cleaned and even ductwork will be addressed. Restoration will take a little time and the company will even store belongings until it’s time to move them back into the restored home that’s free of soot and smells.
