Processes that Help Manage Fire Damage Odor in Brandon

The combustion processes in property fires produce different smells. Most of these smells go away after extinguishing the fire. However, some fire damage incidents leave lingering odors requiring specific deodorization steps to eliminate. We are IICRC certified in fire and smoke restoration to help deal with all types of foul smells. 

Among the main steps of managing fire damage in Brandon is the removal of debris, whether partially or fully burnt. On arrival at the loss site, our SERVPRO crews group items into categories of salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable things. This simple step helps odor management because we remove all the wastes immediately. We also clean the salvageable items and remove those that need in-depth evaluation and cleaning to offsite facilities, thus minimizing sources of foul odor. 

The smoke produced by the fire contains soot particles, aerosols, and other components. Most of these particles are tiny and therefore driven deep into materials as smoke moves around, causing odors to linger even after cleaning. Our SERVPRO crew uses advanced equipment such as Ultra Low Volume foggers to deliver deodorizing agents deep into materials. The ULV fogger atomizes liquid deodorizing agents generating mist with particles as small as 8-15 microns, reaching all areas with odor-causing residues. 

After finishing all processes, including fogging, we ventilate the affected property. Most aerosols float freely through the air, and therefore the bad smell lingers even after cleaning all residues from contents. Our SERVPRO team uses ventilation box fans to generate high-velocity airflow of up to 5,000 cfm. We also have HEPA filtered air scrubbers with activated charcoal that help remove any odor from the air. 

If your Riverview or Mango home feels uninhabitable due to foul odors after a fire, call SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview to help deodorize it. You can reach us at (813) 741-3473 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
