Once you have gotten over the shock of a home fire, you'll typically begin to notice that there is a lingering smell of smoke. To remove and remediate this smoke smell after experiencing a fire is often a difficult job but you can rest assured with SERVPRO's restoration in Wilson County you will be in great hands. Here is how we begin to tackle Smoke Damage in your Home:

Air out your Home

The first thing we must do when it comes to the lingering smoke smell is to air out the home by opening windows and placing portable fans in strategic places throughout the house that will begin to pull the air out of the room. Additionally we will begin to clear out furniture.

Positive Pressure Usage

The Positive Pressure Method is used in ventilation when we force air into a structure through an opening.  Once the air forced into the area it will seek the path of least resistance into the structure.If the opening it utilizes as an exit is three quarters or less the size of the initial opening, there remains a residual positive pressure in the compartment where the air is being forced in to. This positive pressure pulls the smoke and heat inside a compartment and moves it out of the controlled ventilation exit with the air being forced through the front ventilation opening.

True Deep Clean of your Property 

To fully remove the smoke from your home, a deep cleaning of the home must happen. Once of the tricks is using baking soda to deodorizer the area. Additionally SERVPRO may utilize the falling cleaning:

Pressure Washing, Washing Walls and Hard Surfaces, as well as applying specialized cleaners throughout the home.
