Charleston Properties Rely on SERVPRO for Effective Smoke Odor Removal
Our Smoke and Fire Odor Removal Team Gets Your Charleston Home Smelling Lovely Again
There are many reasons why a home in Charleston might smell like smoke. Wood-burning stoves can back smoke into the home, stove-top fires can spread smoke into other areas of the house, and small fires that you managed to put out before it became necessary to call the fire department can leave smoky odors in your home.
We want homeowners to know that SERVPRO can help make their Charleston home smell healthy again after fire-related odors take hold and make things uncomfortable. We know how to make it “Like it never even happened." When we arrive at your home, we come prepared with the different tools and devices that can rid your property of the substances that create the odors. We do more than just adding a scent to cover the odors – we perform the work that makes them unable to bother you again.
We physically remove as many as possible items coated with soot or charred from a fire. Our first step in controlling odors is the removal of the soot and smoke residue that produces such odors. Cleanup can be the most crucial step to restoring good indoor air quality (IAQ.)
Sometimes smoke gets into the cavities inside your walls and ceilings. If possible, we remove the smoke deposits from those areas. Many times, we seal these areas so smoke particles cannot get back into your living space as they disintegrate into smaller pieces.
Thermal fogging works to remove leftover particles that cause odor. However, first, we discuss with you this and other result-producing options. Fogging forces chemical neutralizers into the same areas that the fire's heat pushed the smoke into, which is a good option for homes with numerous enclosed areas. Our hydroxyl generators and ozone machines can help deodorize the contents in your home if they seem to be producing offensive odors.
Ozone's benefits include working more quickly than hydroxyl generators can, while we can continue working in the area if hydroxyl generators suit your needs better. Hydroxyl generators can keep running even while the area remains occupied, and does not cause harm to damp carpets like ozone often does.
If your home has developed an odor from a past fire or other issues, call us, SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston at (843) 577-2470. We can make things pleasant again for you and your family.
