Fire Damage How Our Experts Control Foul Odors In Your Dallas Home After A Fire If you ever need help with eliminating unpleasant aromas after a fire takes place at your residence, call SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas.

Fire Damage Professionals In Dallas Discuss Different Types Of Odor Control Equipment

Whenever something burns inside your Dallas home, the smoke created can cause soot residues and burnt aromas to exist. After the blaze gets extinguished, it is wise to call in a professional fire damage restoration company such as SERVPRO. When things burn, only some of the fuel used gets fully combusted or turned from a solid state to a gas when heat is applied. Many items only get partially consumed and get put into your indoor airflow in the form of smoke. Once these particles start circulating throughout your house, they begin to solidify onto cooler surfaces and cause soot removal as a part of your fire damage situation.

These partially combusted particles can also penetrate deep into porous materials like carpet and fabrics. Even after all soot is removed during your fire damage situation in Dallas, eliminating unpleasant odors is often the last step. Sometimes foul smells can exist inside your contents as well as your building materials. When this is the case, we usually pack out your contents and deodorize them in a separate, clean and disinfected location. Our SERVPRO technicians separate your contents from your structure at times so that our deodorization techniques can work more efficiently to eliminate odors out of both your possessions and building materials.

One way to eliminate smoke related odors is to utilize equipment that dispenses deodorant chemicals in the same manner as the smoke travels through your home. To do this, we can use fogging systems that break deodorants down to microscopic particles. A wet or cold tri-jet fogger can break compounds down to 20-50 micron size droplets. An ultra-low volume or ULV fogger can dispense chemical droplets down even smaller to 8-15 microns in size. For more severe situations a hot thermal fogger can be implemented to distribute particles as little as .5 to 2 microns in size and is used to penetrate chemicals deeply into materials.

If you ever need help with eliminating unpleasant aromas after a fire takes place at your residence, call SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas at (214) 463-5880 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
