Fire and Odor Removal in Saratoga Springs Requires Adaptation to Your Particular Scenario

Among the most important reasons to engage the services of a professional fire damage company is the training and experience brought to the crisis in your Saratoga Springs home. The conditions under which fire residues spread create soils and odors that are unlike any other cleaning challenge. Conventional cleaning approaches can make things worse, a result that is not only disheartening but might make damage permanent, needing great expense and disruption to make right.

Variables that Cause Fire Damage Abatement Difficult
When we assess your Saratoga Springs home for fire and odor removal, our highly-qualified project managers take note of a range of surface characteristics and consideration of the types of fuels and the burning environment. When building materials and contents burn, the smoke residues result from a complicated calculus of

    •    Temperature
    •    Oxygen level
    •    Moisture
    •    Gases produced because of fuel composition

These variables then interact in unique ways with the vast array of surfaces, furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions comprising and occupying the interior of your home, from natural substances like wood, metals, and stone, to modern structural components and contents made from synthetic substances.

Cleaning Protocols Not Fixed or Defined
Because of all these variants and combinations, SERVPRO must be creative as we approach your fire circumstances. Our crews learn the science of fire residue and odor removal during the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training. The “art” of residue and odor abatement comes in as technicians adapt basic concepts of cleaning to obtain successful outcomes for you and your family.

Multiple Methods to Apply the Principles and Elements of Cleaning
Ultimately, effective deep cleaning of the surfaces and contents of your home not only delivers a clean and sanitary environment but also eliminates all but the most persistent odors. We do not give up until we attempt every possible adaptation of cleaning principles and elements. This can include:

    •    Multiple ways to agitate surfaces to dislodge residues
    •    A range of cleaning products to produce desired chemical reactions that break the bond between surfaces and soot
    •    Manipulations of heat and dwell time
    •    Use of advanced equipment like foggers and hydroxyl generators for odor elimination

Have confidence in the innovative mindset of the team from SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County. Call us at (518) 885-2620 after fire damage, and experience the ways our knowledge, experience, and persistence work to make it “Like it never even happened.”
