Categories of Smoke Odors after Somerset Fire Damage
SERVPRO assesses the needs of Somerset homes after fire damage
When you suffer a fire in your home, you need a fire cleanup crew you can trust to help put your house back together. SERVPRO takes care of cleaning your home and your belongings after a fire.
One primary concern for homeowners after fire damage in Somerset homes is leftover smoke odors. To help us deal with smoky smells, our technicians categorize smoke odors into three types:
- Light smoke odor situations occur when there is little visible smoke damage and no structural damage.
- Moderate smoke odor situations occur when there is some structural damage, and smoke residues appear on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.
- Heavy smoke odor situations occur when there is extensive structural damage, and the smoke effects spread far beyond the source of the fire.
The cleaning procedures are different for each type of smoke odor situation. In some cases, we will only need gentle cleaning and some deodorizing pellets, whereas other situations might call for a ULV fogger or an ozone generator. In all cases, we will remove charred and burned materials and arrange cleaning for all salvageable items.
No matter what the level of fire damage, we are here to help. Call SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County at (908) 490-6462.
