Fire Damage and Its Common Complications
Your Home Will Smell Fresh Again after Remediation
If you've been unfortunate enough to have had a recent fire, the unpleasant truth is that there are other complications in addition to the blackened charred mess that has been made of your home. Not only is it now soaked in water, and possibly foam, from the efforts of the firefighters' visit, but the scent of the burnt contents make you cringe whenever you come near your home.
In Bay Pines, fire damage clean-up and restoration should also include odor control. At SERVPRO, we ensure that fire damaged homes aren't only repaired structurally, but that even the fire's smell is eliminated. While we have measuring devices and other equipment that tells us how much moisture is in any particular area, or even how contaminated an item is with soot or other contaminating particles, there is no device that can give us information on how anything, including a room, smells. You or other family members may detect odors that we ourselves cannot.
Because odor detection is an individual thing, we will work with you to ensure that your home doesn't only look great again, but that it also smells like your home should. It's extremely important to us that you are satisfied with all aspects of your fire damage repair, including how your home smells.
While some methods we use require you to vacate your home, others do not. For those that do, we will assist you in also placing other items outdoors that could be harmed by the procedures we will be implementing. Some of these items include not only pets but also plants or even items with rubber components. This is especially true when we use ozone-producing machines. While this will not leave a lingering gas that is harmful, nor a residue on your belongings, the air will be saturated with ozone during the time the machine is running.
When you need to make your home smell like home again, or you want to make sure that fire damage repair is complete in all aspects, call SERVPRO of Gulf Beaches South / West St. Petersburg at (727) 341-1001. We are ready 24/7 to not only take your call but to begin the work needed to get you and your home back to normal again.
