home damaged by a fire Odors can be a challenge to overcome after a fire, but our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team can help.

We have advanced deodorization products and equipment to address all odors left behind by a structure fire in your Danbury home

Odors are one of the most challenging obstacles for homeowners to face after a fire. Even small kitchen fires and grease flare-ups can leave lingering smoke and burning odors that can seem the worst where the fire happened in the kitchen area. With potent deodorizing products, both scented and unscented, we can address these widespread effects along with other mitigation steps.

Why Are Lingering Odors Such a Challenge to Remove?
Especially with the case of fire damage in Danbury kitchens, odors can become absorbed into porous surfaces, including the cabinets, flooring, ceiling tile, drywall, and more. Despite the effects that fires can have on the contents and furniture within the kitchen, it is trapped odors in the wall and ceiling materials that become the hardest to address. When fires occurred, pores in these materials opened wider, allowing more smoke molecules to enter. When the area cooled, these molecules became trapped inside the porous surfaces.

What Tools are Necessary for Odor Removal?
Removing odors requires sophisticated equipment, and our SERVPRO professionals have multiple options. We make these choices depending on the severity of the situation, the materials affected, and the size of the damaged area. Some of the common choices include:

    •    ULV Foggers – Using pressurized misting, these foggers can cover a wide surface area with potent deodorizing products that can neutralize on contact.
    •    Thermal Foggers – Similar products get used in thermal fogging, which heats these products to a vapor that can get sprayed throughout the affected area. With soft materials and porous surfaces, these deodorizers are effective.
    •    Hydroxyl Generators – These are best for larger damaged areas and combine air quality control with UV deodorization.

Odors can be a challenge to overcome after a fire, but our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team can help. Give our technicians a call anytime at (203) 791-0920.
