Odor and Fire Damage Restoration in Mississauga
SERVPRO Provides Expert Fire Restoration Technicians
Kitchen fires often have a limited spread of damage in the home. However, without professional restoration, the unpleasant burnt odor can reside in the kitchen area for several weeks or months after the incident. These odors are especially prominent in fat fires that leave behind greasy and tough-to-clean smoke residues.
Odor control technicians (OCT) are part of our fire damage team here in Mississauga. We use a tiered and systematic approach to tackle unpleasant odors. Tracking down the exact odor source in a property can be challenging. However, by using an established odor removal procedure and performing regular assessments of the results, we can ensure that we remove the offending odor from your home. SERVPRO can also help you with:
- Fire debris removal
- Fire odor neutralisation
Using chemical solvents in an enclosed kitchen can be overkill for clearing odors. Our first steps are to remove potential odor sources by disposing of charred materials or belongings. We then ventilate the space using box or venting fans to ensure that volatile odors depart quickly. If the smell persists following these steps, our technicians can perform a deep clean using chemical agents and detergents to remove smoke residues from walls, tiles, ceilings, and appliances. Following a second ventilation procedure, our technicians can then assess whether or not your home requires more aggressive odor control methods. If odors persist, technicians can then apply chemical deodorizers.
- Masking agents are dispersed directly onto the surfaces using pressure sprays or mixing solutions and applied during the cleaning phase.
- Odor counteractant beads are small, concentrated pellets placed under sinks, drawers, or cavities to neutralize odor over time.
- If odors persist, misting or fumigating the affected area is possible using thermal foggers. These are used in cycles with matching ventilation periods.
