What Smoke Damage Affects in Your Charleston Home After a Fire

7/30/2018 (Permalink)

Drapes in your home can harbor odor even though they weren't physically damaged by the fire. Contact SERVPRO for remediation and odor removal.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Fire Damage Including Any Foul Smells Left Behind

One of the biggest problems that homeowners face after a fire in their Charleston home (regardless of size and severity) is a lingering odor that is challenging to remove. Professional restoration techniques are usually very effective in breaking apart this noxious odor and leaving no scent behind, but better understanding the nature of this effect from the fire is important.

Regardless of how fire damages occurred in your Charleston residence, you work quickly to hire the right professional restoration team to take care of the problem and get your home back to the way it used to be. Our SERVPRO team of technicians can help you to overcome all of the obstacles in bringing your home back to preloss conditions, including the deodorization of affected areas and items.

Open areas can often harbor much of this persistent smoke damage and harsh odor following a fire in your home. SERVPRO technicians work to break apart these odor molecules using various pieces of equipment, ultimately leaving no odor behind at all.

Another problem area for the smoke damage to seep into is the carpeting of your home. Since the carpets act as a natural magnet for dirt and debris, this same magnetism helps them to store these odors inside the fibers and into the base of the material. Premier carpet cleaning and deep cleansing approaches by our technicians help to remove the soot and smoke damages.

Another problem area to trap smoke odors is furniture and fabrics in the affected areas. Upholstery and drapes can hold on to this harsh odor long after the fire has gotten extinguished and require specific deodorization techniques to relinquish it.

Understanding the effects of a fire in your home can help you to understand better the processes required to remove them and restore the area they have affected. Choosing the right professional restoration company can help you to overcome these obstacles and get left with high-quality restorative work. Rely on our SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston experienced technicians to respond quickly and clean up the mess and restore the damages your home has experienced. Give us a call today at (843) 577-2470.
