Handling Fire Damage Means Addressing Smoke Odors – Call SERVPRO to Your San Jose Property!

Addressing tough odors present after fire damage within your San Jose home can be difficult, at best. When you hire SERVPRO to handle fire restoration, we implement scientific principles to safely and effectively attack odor particles. Following the clean up of charred debris and unsalvageable materials, we tailor a cleaning and deodorizing plan to your exact needs.

Handling fire damage in San Jose goes beyond clean-up and controlled demolition. Fire damaged homes are susceptible to microscopic odor-causing particles that leave a constant reminder of the fire event. Small particles mean they can easily penetrate porous surfaces, which calls for specialized smoke remediation.

SERVPRO Technicians are Trained to Eliminate Smoke Damage

There are essential factors to consider when it comes to smoke penetration. Some of the things that our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) look for include:

  • Residue Levels – When residue is heavier in some zones within your home, the more surface materials it impacts, sometimes making it harder to neutralize.
  • Surface Porosity – Different porous materials are more likely to take on odor particles than non-porous materials.
  • Temperature – The hotter the fire burned, the deeper the odor penetration often is. Porous surfaces expand when subjected to heat, allowing particles to enter.
  • Exposure Time – The longer your contents and surfaces get exposed to soot and smoke residue, the more bonded they become. 

The SERVPRO IICRC-certified team has proven methods that allow us to carefully clean contents and surface areas. Depending on the soot and other factors listed above, we may implement wet or dry cleaning methods. For any materials deemed unsalvageable, we will perform controlled demolition to make your interior “Like it never even happened.”

Contact SERVPRO of NE San Jose by calling (408) 834-7663, and we can send our Green Fleet out for a fire damage assessment.
