SERVPRO Understands That Martinez Homeowners Do Not Want To Suffer Bad Odours.

Any homeowner understands that pleasant smell is part of what makes a house feel like home. From freshly baked bread to flowers to your favorite essential oils, there are many ways to make your Martinez home smell lovely.

One of the worst things after fire damage restoration in Martinez is the lingering smoke smell. That is why deodorization is an integral part of the SERVPRO remediation process.

Why do smoke smells linger?

Any person who has the misfortune to suffer a house fire knows that the scent of smoke tends to linger. But why is that?

Smoke and soot contain microscopic particles that infiltrate deep into fabrics and are hard to remove.

Smoke and soot can bond to many different types of materials.

Increasing ventilation dilutes some of the smell but does not remove all of it.

Adding scents such as room spray or air freshener mask the smell but does not get rid of it.

What is the best way to get rid of smoke smells?

The best way to rid your home of lingering smoke smells is to give us a call. We train our technicians in a range of deodorizing practices designed to leave your home smelling so fresh it’s "Like it never even happened." Getting rid of smells is an essential step in our fire damage restoration process.

What can SERVPRO do to help?

We have many deodorizing techniques at our disposal, including:

Pellets and granules designed to absorb odors so they cannot return.

U.V. misters that release a fine spray of cleaning chemicals that can get into nooks and crannies and remove smells.

Thermal foggers that are strong enough to tackle even overpowering lingering scents.

Air scrubbers that use fine HEPA filters to pull soot and smoke particles out of the air and pump clean air back into the room.

We can also use fans to exhaust odors, spot cleaning for stubborn soot stains, or injection devices to tackle tiny problem spots, such as stains on the carpet.

We train our technicians to assess your home's condition after cleaning and restoration and decide on the most appropriate deodorization method.

If you are worried about a lingering smell of smoke in your home, give SERVPRO of Columbia County a call at (706) 868-5441.
