A fire at your business can leave unpleasant burnt odors for several weeks or months after the event. However, homeowners can significantly reduce this timeframe with a professional odor control technician. At SERVPRO, we use multiple odor control techniques, chemical agents, and equipment to ensure your business returns to its normal preloss condition without odor.

Facing fire damage in your Seattle company can be a traumatic experience. The lingering burnt odors make it difficult for staff to continue working and create an unpleasant environment for customers. Bad smells are volatile particles that can settle on or even penetrate porous surfaces. Some odors can become trapped inside textiles such as carpet fibers and release other bad smells when disturbed. To combat these issues, our technicians use absorption agents and powders that absorb humidity and odors together. These powders are sprinkled directly onto the carpet surface, forming a sealant between the odor particles and indoor air. We can also help you with:

  • Fire debris removal
  • Fire restoration
  • Smoke damages

Another method of controlling bad smells is with digestive enzymes. Enzymes are organic bacteria that help to break down substances on a molecular level converting them into odor-neutral particles such as carbon dioxide and water. We use these digestive enzymes primarily in restaurants suffering from kitchen fires where the causes of odor could be protein-based soiling. One of the core advantages of using a natural enzyme is that it can convert greasy smoke deposits into water-soluble substances. A simple detergent can be very effective on fatty soil deposits, providing that an enzyme has been applied first.

  • Adsorption agents are materials such as charcoal that can be used to filter unpleasant odors from indoor spaces. Equipment like air filtration devices incorporate these materials.
  • Electronic filtration devices can also be used in the home, which capture microscopic organisms and destroys them reducing odor.
  • Disinfectants and sanitizers are also useful in destroying or removing invisible odors from surfaces.
