Odor Management after a Fire in a Lake Stevens Home

Odors are a common effect that Lake Stevens homeowners must contend with after a fire – regardless of its size or severity. Our professionals have methods to manage these detrimental effects and help limit its migration. With the application of specific tools and products, we can eliminate these odors and help to continue the process of making a fire loss, “Like it never even happened.”

Though we have a fast response that dispatches qualified professionals 24/7 from our facility, the effects can be widespread through the house by the time our crew arrives at your Lake Stevens fire damage emergency. As premier specialists in fire loss scenarios, we have the training and expertise to assess the situation and set up the appropriate containment barriers to enclose the affected spaces to maximize our odor removal and cleaning efforts.

Managing the presence of smoke odors can come with risks and hazards, as many of these same situations have airborne threats such as soot particles. Soot is highly acidic in its composition, and because of its microscopic size, it can penetrate deeply into the lungs and cause health effects for those exposed. Our SERVPRO team must address these concerns and the odor to keep the technicians on-site and the house's occupants safe.

While air scrubbers and negative air systems can help reduce the presence of these particulates and debris in the environment by running the air inside through HEPA filters, we can often utilize a tool like our hydroxyl generator. Using a UV spectrum that interacts with water vapors in the environment, these machines can clean and deodorize affected areas.

Containment strategies like plastic sheeting can help slow the progression of spreading odors throughout the home and any existing particulates or contaminants in the air. By focusing on filtration and deodorization, our SERVPRO of North Everett / Lake Stevens / Monroe team can make your home safe to be in after a fire. Give our professionals a call anytime you need us at (360) 243-8313.
