Mitigation of Your Fremont Home Removes Smelly Evidence of Fire Damage

2/2/2022 (Permalink)

When a Fremont home endures a disaster, changes to its appearance also happen.  Fire causes both physical and chemical changes to take place to the interior and often, to the exterior, of a home.  Physical changes can mean once-beautiful aspects to your home become charred or dirty.  Chemical changes often mean horrible odors permeate the air.

Homeowners in Fremont with fire damaged homes start the restoration process through mitigation.  Cleaning and preparing the home by removing all safety hazards ensures that complete restoration happens quickly and smoothly.  When something shows damage in your home after a fire, we first try to save the material.  Only when that fails do we opt for removal of the material.

When a fire causes your home to burn, many changes take place.  When we remove fire-damaged materials, odors often dissipate and become much weaker.  Carpeting and rugs absorb a tremendous amount of soot but can remain reasonably clean-looking.  However, below the surface can hold staggering amounts of soot and other debris.  Our technicians can discuss options with you regarding the amount of damage sustained by the carpets in your home.

Cleaning the surfaces inside of your home removes the soot that creates the signature odor of a house fire.  Soft materials absorb soot and steadily give off odor-causing particles.  Specialized cleaning and laundering of these items at our facility ensure they remain out of the way while work progresses.  When finished cleaning these items of soot, returning them to you happens at your convenience.

Eliminating any remaining odors decreases the number of memory triggers your family experiences, and helps make the memory of the fire fade much more quickly.  Our technicians work with customers individually because odor detection varies from person to person.  While one person may not smell an odor at all, another person might smell an overpowering scent.  We want to ensure your satisfaction with how your home smells and looks before we consider our work finished.  

There are many other ways that the technicians at SERVPRO can help you and your family recover from fire damage.  SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest wants to help you every step of the way.  Call us at 402-800-2134 whenever you need expert services.
