Small Kitchen Fires Can Leave a Big Stink in Your Home
There are times when we enter a home that has had a fire and there is little visible evidence of damage other than a blackened kitchen range. However, in these cases the lingering smoke odor can be a big problem.
"Oh well", a homeowner might think, "I’ll just light a candle or spray some air freshener and eventually the smell will be gone. No need to go through the trouble of professional cleaning."
If you’ve ever tried to remove smoke odor on your own, however, you know that this is not an easy task. Smoke can penetrate both hard and soft surfaces, including wood floors, carpeting and even infiltrate the cavity behind walls, leaving the home with a smoky smell for years.
The professional restoration efforts of SERVPRO of Milford-Orange-Stratford ensures that the smoke damage is neutralized completely, with no scent at all left behind. Our team has a number of ways in which it accomplishes the neutralization of odorous molecules. One tool in our arsenal is the fogging machine. This chemical fog applied has no scent, but it reacts with smoke damage on a molecular level and nullifies them entirely. Ozone machines with HEPA filters are also utilized for deodorizing your home. This machine cleans the air of the foul lingering odor and removes any harmful molecules that might also still be around following your recent fire.
Don’t suffer in a smelly home after you’ve had a small kitchen fire. Our team is trained and experienced in fire damage restoration and ready to make it “Like it never even happened.”
