Eliminating Fire Odor Damage To Cutler Bay Homes
With Cutler Bay in bicycle or scooter distance of Biscayne Bay and Everglades National Park, residents enjoy nearly every natural benefit our area has to offer. Unfortunately, even being right between these two natural wonders does not protect local homes from fires and other disasters.
Fire odor damage in Cutler Bay homes is perhaps the most difficult to remove completely. Even a tiny amount of odor-causing particles from smoke residues and burned property can generate a noxious smell that prevents residents from enjoying their homes. To eliminate these malodors, SERVPRO teams utilize four methods to restore the property to its previous, odor-free condition.
First, team members remove all debris and other odor sources from inside the home. That includes everything restorable, and items too damaged for restoration. This step eliminates most odor sources and allows technicians to determine further, required deodorization methods.
Second, team members clean odor-causing residues from every affected surface. They use cleaners based on the type of residue. For example, in a kitchen fire, cleaners contain a degreaser to cut through the protein and other types of food residues. These thicker residues often need a very strong cleaner and a scraper to remove them completely. For the rest of the home, residues are lighter and need a milder cleaner with a sponge to remove them from most surfaces.
Third, if the basic cleaning methods of the fire damage are not sufficient, SERVPRO technicians recreate the original method of contamination to deodorize the property. As an example, if smoke blowing through an attic penetrated the roof supports, team members use a fogger device to generate a cloud of deodorizing chemicals that can penetrate the wood frame pieces as deeply as the original malodors. Here, the cleaner may contain a combination of neutralizers and sanitizers.
Finally, there is the option of sealing odorous surfaces. This method is limited in its use to painting walls with mild odor contamination and sealing off air ducts in HVAC systems. In both cases, sealing is far cheaper than other methods.
