Helping Homeowners with Effective Odor Removal after a Fire in Nashua

When things burn, the combustion creates smoke that deposits soot on any exposed surface. You might not see all of these exposed surfaces, however. Your Nashua home can contain many hidden areas that make removal of all soot deposits impossible with standard equipment.

Because SERVPRO specialists are determined to help homeowners restore their homes "Like it never even happened," we consider it essential to perform Nashua odor removal services after any fire and smoke incidents. Our equipment comes in a variety of different types, ensuring that we always have what we need to protect your family and guests from foul odors.

When smoke fills a room, the solids in that smoke settle as they cool down. Because of the heat pushing the smoke into areas does not dissipate quickly, smoke can enter into small spaces behind walls, above ceiling panels, and inside furniture.

For areas that become sources for smokey odors like this, we use thermal fogging. Hot steam loaded with powerful chemicals that render odor-causing soot inert and unable to get back into the air helps resolve the problem quickly. When other areas of your home require attention, we use different methods.

Walls and ceilings can continue to give off odor, even after cleaning. Priming these surfaces and repainting can stop the odor from coming into the air your family breathes. Various surfaces also respond well with clear sealants. Concrete and brick can hold soot in tiny pores that become worse whenever heat or water vapor in the area increases. Ensuring these particles of soot cannot leave means your home stays fresh-smelling.

When highly porous materials become loaded with soot, like carpeting, we use the application of scented gels and liquids. While these may seem like only a covering of the odors, regular vacuuming steadily removes the particles that cause the odor. Reapplication also helps maintain continued control of odors.

Because we do not live in your home, we rely on your judgment of the effectiveness of our odor removal and control measures. SERVPRO of Nashua considers your involvement in the restoration of your home, including those involving odors, as an essential part of our work. Call us at (603) 889-2311, so we can partner with you when smoke and soot affect the indoor air quality of your residence.
