Odor Removal & Odor Control
One of the most important aspects of fire restoration will include eliminating any types of hazardous odors as well as refreshing the home back to its natural ambiance. Items in the home may have undergone a number of chemical changes from direct exposure to intense heat and fire. This chemical change leaves behind dangerous odors which can be extremely unhealthy for you and your family members.
If you are exposed to these types of odors for an extended period of time you may experience symptoms such as shortness in breathe or even suffocation. These odors will be extracted from your home with the use of professional fresheners and baking soda to assist in absorbing these odors out of your items. Odor control after a large fire or water damage disaster requires a lot of work to get the smells out of your home.
