Cleaning Soots And Clearing Odor From Fire Damage In Fort Myers

Every fire is different. The types of material that burn during a fire, and at what temperature, has a substantial impact on our cleaning approach. House-fires can start from anywhere, but usually, it is the result of a kitchen mishap or loose electrical wiring. Billowing smoke can deposit residues throughout the house in the form of soots and are challenging to clean by yourself. We operate a professional service to help get your home like it was before the fire.

Typical service for fire damage in Fort Myers that we offer is cleaning and deodorization. SERVPRO technicians have training in the differing types of smoke damage and the most effective way of tackling them. We group these damages into two broad groups. The first is wet smoke which can be the result of protein fibers or synthetic materials. Wet smoke is typically odorous. The second type is dry smoke from the burning of natural materials and less challenging to remediate.

On arrival at your property, a SERVPRO technician can conduct a full pre-test of the materials burned and the type of smoke residue left behind. Wet smokes usually require powerful chemical agents to remediate effectively alongside spray on deodorizers that can mask an odor until it departs naturally. Dry smoke can be wiped away using sanitizers, and it is unlikely that odor remains after the removal of soot.

By testing for the different types of material, we can create a tailored game plan for getting your home back to its preloss condition. Sometimes, water used in firefighting procedure can cause soots to settle into fabrics like mattresses or curtains. Using foam cleaning SERVPRO can remediate these damages by gently dabbing smoke deposits that may reside beneath the surface.

When we remediate fire losses at the source, it is typical for the odor of charred or burning materials to dissipate naturally. This isn't always the case as sometimes deposits can reside in areas that are challenging to access like a ventilation system. Using thermal foggers, we can thoroughly fumigate your ventilation shafts, HVAC systems as well as any other cavities in the property.
