If your home or business has been damaged in a fire, then you will understandably want to get the property restored to its former state as quickly as possible. Even when all the visible signs of fire have been removed, however, you may still find that there’s a lingering odor of smoke. Now, sense of smell can differ widely between different people, so restoration teams like ours at Davie Property Restoration have largely moved away from odor masking solutions–after all, any scents used to mask the smoke odor would run into the same problem. Instead, we aim for complete smoke odor removal using the science of smells, and in this article, we’ll go over more about how this process works.
First, we will remove anything with visible smoke damage, as these items are more than likely to give off noticeable smoke odors. Next, we’ll clean everything–every square inch of the space, as well as everything in that space. This removes any lingering smoke residue, even the most hidden spots, and takes the scent molecules with it. After that, we’ll run our specialized odor removing equipment to further clear the air. As a final step in smoke odor removal, we also recommend sealing any porous surfaces, such as unfinished wood, to prevent any trapped smoke molecules from escaping back into the air.
If you need smoke odor restoration services for your property, don’t hesitate to give us a call at Davie Property Restoration.
