Matterport image of fire damage in a kitchen We offer deodorization services for properties affected by fire damage. As seen in the image, the source of the fire has been removed .

There are four principles of deodorization that we follow when restoring an affected area after a fire. 

  1. The first step is to remove the source. The charred material all needs to be removed first to start the process of deodorization. 
  2. We then clean any contaminated surface to remove soot residue. This needs to happen as soon as possible to help minimize damage.
  3. After removing the residue we then use different methods to remove odor.  This principle is called recreate the conditions of penetration.  We use many different methods to remove odor form objects.  We use ozone machines, hydroxyl machines as well as thermal foggers to remove odor. 
  4. When necessary, we seal and encapsulate the odor using special sealing materials so that the odor does not penetrate the sealer and continue to produce an odor.
