Fire Damage Restoration In Forest Hills Often Requires Utilizing Deodorization Products

If even a small fire ever starts inside your house in Forest Hills, many problems can take place. Fire damage can often come in the form of soot residues and unpleasant aromas. If the blaze was minor, you might not have suffered from a large amount of burnt or charred contents and building materials, but soot residues can still cause you issues on their own. For example, some soots can stain or ruin certain surfaces.

As a part of fire damage restoration in Forest Hills, our SERVPRO technicians can offer cleaning and deodorization techniques. When the surfaces of your building materials and contents get coated with soils and soot residues as a result of the smoke coming from the blaze, the first step we take is to figure out the best cleaning method. When conducting the first inspection, we can test clean your negatively affected surfaces to see if they can be saved and what chemicals and techniques will work the best. Once we figure out the best methods to use, we can clean all of the surfaces in your home that got coated with soot residues.

In some cases, all foul odors can be neutralized during the cleaning process. In other situations, our SERVPRO team has to conduct further deodorization procedures. When removing unpleasant aromas, we can utilize a variety of deodorization products. For example, odor counteracting beads are made of a porous material that is treated with counteractants. When the bag of beads gets opened, the counteractants are released into the air.

We can also utilize specialized deodorant granules or pellets to help deodorize your structure. These pellets work like a sponge that attracts and holds malodor particles. Water-based counteractants can also be used to neutralize bad smells that exist on surfaces.

Other tools we have at our disposal include wet mist or thermal foggers. These machines get filled with chemicals that get dispensed into the air in tiny particulates that can mimic the way smoke traveled throughout your building. We can also use sealers which can seal in odors that exist from burnt or charred materials.

If you ever notice the presence of soot residues after a small fire burns in your house, call SERVPRO of Forest Hills / Ridgewood at (718) 381-3702 any day of the week. We can help you return your home to the way it was before the blaze, “Like it never even happened.”
