SERVPRO's Odor Control Technicians Know How to Combat Odors After Fire Damage to Your North Kingston Home

Combating odors after fire damage to your North Kingston home can be quite a challenge. SERVPRO technicians apply scientific principles to understand the behavior of odor particles and design an effective deodorizing strategy to suit the specific conditions. 

SERVPRO technicians understand that odor-causing smoke particles formed after fire damage to your North Kingston home can be microscopic. The smaller size of the particles allows them to penetrate deeper into porous surfaces after extensive smoke damage. The deodorant particles also must be small enough to reach the odor-causing particles and neutralize them. However, size is not the only factor determining how the odor-causing particles penetrate materials. 

Factors That Help Smoke Particles Penetrate Materials in Fire Damaged Homes in North Kingston 

Some of the important factors helping smoke particles penetrate surfaces of your North Kingston home that SERVPRO technicians recognize include-

  • The porosity of the surface- Porous surfaces are more likely to absorb odors than non-porous surfaces. 
  • Amount of the residue- Heavier the residue after a fire and smoke damage, the greater the surface area of material it can impact and more difficult it is for SERVPRO techs to neutralize
  • Exposure time- Longer exposure of the residue allows the odor-causing particles to penetrate deeper, making it difficult for SERVPRO to deodorize during house fire cleanup. 
  • Heat- Hotter particles can penetrate surfaces deeper. Also, porous surfaces tend to expand due to heat, making it easy for the particles to penetrate.
