What Are Some Tips To Help Remove Smoke Odors From My North Nashville Home?

3/14/2022 (Permalink)

The heat, soot, and smoke of a fire will affect everything in your home or business. You’ll need the assistance of professionals who have the expertise and equipment required to get your North Nashville property back to normal.

Until all the smoke is cleared from your premises you will want to avoid entering, since it isn’t healthy to breathe the accompanying fumes from burned materials. Hiring SERVPRO of North Nashville right away will ensure that your property is completely free from the after-effects of the fire as soon as possible. We are fire restoration experts, and that includes  removal of all those unpleasant lingering odors, too. 

What Is The First Step In Managing The Unpleasant Odors That Come From Smoke Damage?

  • The first and most important step in managing smoke and soot odors is to remove all sources of the odor. This will include removing items that have been burned, such as cabinets, furniture, drywall, and anything that is non-salvageable. The items can then be either discarded or restored, depending on their condition. 
  • Our professional technicians will then clean the salvageable items with the appropriate products. 
    • They pressure wash, scrub, and disinfect exterior surfaces like walls, windows, and decks, while interior walls and hard surfaces can be cleaned with mild soap and then rinsed thoroughly. 
    • SERVPRO will also clean inside cabinets, drawers, and closets, and wash household items, too. Carpets, furniture, and upholstery are usually cleaned off-site. All these steps need to be taken right away so that the odors don’t penetrate any materials deeply. 
  • Smoke, soot, and odors from a fire will penetrate the duct system. Cleaning the ducts early in the odor removal process is therefore essential to prevent the HVAC system from re-contaminating areas that have been cleaned. Professionals should be the ones tasked with cleaning the ductwork, as it involves specialized equipment and procedures that are only available to them.
