Smoke Odor Can Become Trapped in an Indoor Environment after Fire Damage

SERVPRO has Qualified Odor Control Technicians in Waterbury. It is common to experience an odor issue in your home after a fire. In a contained situation, for example, a kitchen fire, these are often referred to as a light smoke odor. Light smoke odors are minor smoke damage within a single area, where odors become less perceptible the further away you get from the source. 

Our first step toward fire restoration in your Waterbury home is to remove the source of the odor. Removing the source could involve disposing of fire debris, cleaning visible smoke damages, and ventilating the affected area. Once the area is clean and clear of potential odor sources, our technicians ventilate the room thoroughly to see if odor disperses. If the smell remains, we use deodorant and deodorizing equipment to rid the home of odor.

  • Vapor odors are best contained by using odor counteracting pellets in the affected area that trap odor-causing particles.
  • Thermal fogging uses chemical pairing agents to find and neutralize smoke odors. We apply misting significantly to the source and work outward.
  • Inspecting cavities, ceiling spaces, air-conditioning units, and crawl spaces can often remove odor-causing stains or smoke residues
