Removing Porous Materials key To Removing Odor In Fire Damage
This loss came from a car catching on fire in a garage. The fire affected most of the home but the garage got the worst of the damage. You can see our technicians wearing personal protective equipment because it can be very hard to breath and see with all the soot on materials and in the air.
When big losses like this arise it is very possible to have to remove every inch of porous material, including drywall and insulation. We need to remove all porous materials because the smoke smell is very hard to remove. Removing the source is always the most effective step in odor removal.
We take the time to make sure our technicians are fully trained on the effects of fire and odor by getting them IICRC certified.
