Fire Damage Restoration In Centerville Can Involve Using A ULV Fogger

Even if a small blaze ignites inside your Centerville home, the smoke coming from it can cause you several different issues. Smoke and the odors and residues it leaves behind can become a significant portion of any fire damage restoration project. When the inferno is small and extinguished quickly, smoldering items can still give off a large amount of smoke. The smoke can then find its way all over your house.

Once the smoke that consists of partially combusted particles comes into contact with cooler surfaces such as your walls or ceilings, it can harden and turn into soils or soot residues. During any fire damage project in Centerville, our SERVPRO technicians know that the cleaning of soot residues is vital to restoring your structure. Soot residues can ruin some surfaces, cause discoloration, and become the source of foul odors. The smoke coming from the burnt items in your building can also penetrate deeply into your porous contents and building materials like your carpets or upholstered furniture.

When foul odors are still prevalent inside your home after all burnt materials get removed, and the soot residues are cleaned, our SERVPRO crew can implement specialized deodorization procedures. In some cases, the key to removing all malodor particles is to dispense a chemical deodorant into the atmosphere that mimics how the smoke flowed throughout your structure. To do this, we can use industrial deodorization equipment such as thermal or Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers to break down the chemicals into microscopic particles so that they can penetrate deeply into your affected contents and structural components.

ULV foggers atomize water-based chemical deodorants and turn them into a fine mist. These foggers can break deodorants down into particles as small as 20 to 60 microns in size, which can penetrate most affected items. ULV misters can be used to deodorize your building materials, contents, air supply system, or your attic. We can also use air movers to push the mist further into an affected area or to keep the deodorants airborne for a longer time.

If you ever notice foul odors or soot residues after a small fire burns inside your home, call SERVPRO of North Leon County at (850) 536-6599 24/7. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
