After a Business Had a Small Fire, But Still Smells Like Smoke - What Can Be Done?
SERVPRO Features Proven Fire Damage Restoration Techniques to Address Smoke Odors That Linger Inside San Francisco Businesses.
Once your business has a fire, the chances are good that you will have some odorous smoke particles that can hang around even after cleanup is finished. Even the smallest structure fire can lead to extensive damage, but you also need assistance if you notice foul smoke odors remain. SERVPRO features highly-trained fire restoration technicians who can restore your San Francisco business to eliminate the fire incident traces.
How Does Fire and Odor Cleanup Work?
Whenever SERVPRO gets called for fire damage restoration in San Francisco, we pay close attention to several factors. For example, the cause of the fire and type of materials burned will play a role in the kind of smoke and soot left behind. Should you have stubborn residue or hidden particles that migrated throughout your HVAC system, everything must get meticulously cleaned to make it, “Like it never even happened.”
Once you call us for restoration services, we take care of the following:
- Removal of all debris and odor-causing elements, such as charred building materials, furnishings, etc.
- Carefully clean all surfaces coated with odor-causing particulates. Every area of your business gets inspected to determine where the odors may have traveled.
- We can also recreate the conditions that brought about odor penetration by way of thermal fogging technology.
- If necessary, our skilled technicians can also seal any surfaces that suffered exposure to malodors. This includes sealing the inside of your ducts or painting walls.
When there are charred studs in any of your commercial space walls, we can use steel scrub brushes, dry ice blasting, or soda blasting to remove the charring. Once complete, we can then finish off the studs with a seal coat to inhibit smoke odors from lingering.
