Ozone Machines and Hydroxyl Generators Can Remove Fire & Smoke Odors in Siesta Key
SERVPRO Equipment, Manned by Skilled Technicians, Can Mitigate Odors after House Fires
Fires can leave foul and lingering smoke odors inside your Florida home that may remain inside the structure if they are not adequately dealt with by trained fire damage professionals like us. Fires can also produce smoke and soot residues that can get all over the surfaces in your home, which is why calling our certified company right away may reduce damages to your property.
SERVPRO fire damage technicians in Siesta Key have the right equipment to remove various odors from the structure. In some instances, removing burnt and charred items and materials inside the home and cleaning the affected areas may eliminate smoke odors without any further work. However, this is the exception to the rule. Typically, there is always some odor remaining after a house fire. If foul odors remain in the home after the cleaning and removal process, the crew may spray deodorant chemicals to remove the smells. Improving the indoor air quality is a goal of every fire damage restoration service we provide. This "masking" is not a permanent solution to resolving malodorous circumstances but does help in improving the working environment
In some cases, the team may need to use more advanced deodorization equipment. If these smoke odors are pungent, our trained SERVPRO team may use portable ozone machines. SERVPRO techs often use ozone machines to eliminate pungent odors from homes after a fire. Ozone machines use the radical oxygen elemental O3 that can neutralize and eliminate strong smoke smells. Note that ozone is not safe for humans, pets, or even houseplants, so if our team employs this device, homeowners and pets must vacate the premises. Due to ozone’s toxicity, our crew may seal off the entire area and remove materials from the property. After the crew finishes using the ozone machine, they can return items to the home and put all contents back in place, if they were removed for the restoration process.
Hydroxyl generators are small units that can be very beneficial in neutralizing airborne particulates. These are safe and are often used during the cleanup phase, improving air quality for the technicians and residents remaining in the home.
