Fire Damage Post-Fire Odor Control and Removal Helps Make a Marlborough Residence Habitable Again Smoke from a Marlborough Housefire? Call SERVPRO to Freshen Up Your Home

SERVPRO's Expertise and Equipment Are the Answers to a Smoke Odor Removal Service

Housefires in Marlborough often mean lengthy rebuilding periods. However, that eventually ends, and the family can return home. With the home restored, nothing should hinder the family from enjoying their home once again. However, at times, a lingering problem does exist. This problem permeates almost everywhere and seems to become worse whenever heat or humidity rises.

Homeowners in Marlborough who return home after a fire often encounter an invisible problem that only odor control and elimination can solve. At SERVPRO, we use different machines to combat this problem. Highly effective against the particles left behind by even the most thorough cleaning work, hydroxyl and ozone-generating machines form invisible gases which quickly form molecular bonds with offending particles. Once bonded, the odor-causing compounds are rendered clean.

After the use of either of these two gas-producing machines, a waiting period for the gas to work follows. Once complete, we, along with the homeowners, check to determine the need for additional odor control measures. The presence of slight odors remaining can often mean that when warmer weather begins, those almost imperceptible scents currently experienced can quickly become much worse.

In conditions warranting extra odor control, we use thermal fogging. Mimicking the smoke that once permeated into tiny cracks, crevices, and spaces, thermal fogging can efficiently remove the ability of smoke particles to disintegrate and float back into the air. Because we use a forced fogging method, this works quickly.

Closing doors and leaving your home fogged with special chemicals that leave little to no residue, your home can soon smell fresh, clean, and healthy once again. Waiting times for the fog to work range from half an hour to less than two hours, with ventilation times running a bit less. Individuals with respiratory diseases or other concerns should speak with the physician about any concerns.

Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) knows that while some odors remain so slight that some individuals never notice them while other individuals experience discomfort from these same odor-causing particles. Every individual reacts uniquely, and our goal is to make your home smell "Like it never even happened," for every member of your family.
