Slidell Fire Odor Control – The Kitchen Fire is Out, Now What
Whether you put out the fire yourself or the fireman quickly doused the fire in your kitchen, there is a good chance that odors from the fire can remain. There may be several different odors depending on what was burning and how quickly the fire was put out. For example, there may be odors from burned food, grease, plastic, and more that permeates your home. The odors might even be limited to your kitchen or may have spread to other portions of the house.
SERVPRO has been active in the Slidell area since 1999, dealing with fire odor control, water damage, flood, and storm damage issues. We can call on other franchises for assistance as needed to ensure we have sufficient human resources and technical skills to meet any situation.
Remove the Source
The first step in dealing with odors is always to remove the primary source of the odor. If there is a charred pot on the stove, for example, it needs to be removed from the home. Removing odors follows a procedure that SERVPRO has perfected over the years. We identify the cause of the odor and treat it accordingly. There may be several types of odors that need different treatment.
Hard Surfaces vs. Absorbent Materials
Hard surfaces such as stove tops and counters may have significant concentrations of odor-producing material. These surfaces can be cleaned by thoroughly wiping the surfaces. Remove any residue that was deposited. SERVPRO cleans cabinets, walls, vent hoods, and filters and ceilings. All must be washed and cleaned. In some situations, walls may need to be painted to seal in the odors.
Fabrics may need to be removed and sent out for cleaning. There are a variety of products and equipment that can be used for fire odor control and to remove odors from carpets and furniture. SERVPRO selects the appropriate method based on the type of fire, causing the smell and the concentration or residue. Our technicians are trained to deal with all of these situations. We can return your home to its original condition, "Like it never even happened."
