How Professionals Remove Smoke Odor From Fire Damaged Shreveport Homes

The fire was localized to a small part of the house, but smoke traveled throughout the property. Call SERVPRO to eliminate the smoke odors.

Do Ozone Machines Work for Fire Damage Odor in Shreveport Homes? 

Fire loss incidents can become substantially damaging situations for individual Shreveport homes and properties. Even with an immediate response to the disaster with competent and certified restoration specialists, it can be an uphill battle to overcome current effects like smoke and soot residues and lingering odors. While there are multiple tools and devices that professionals can use to address harsh scents in the property after a fire, among the most powerful of these is the ozone machine.

Understanding more about how these machines can aid in the elimination of fire damage odor in Shreveport properties can help homeowners to appreciate their need for professional restoration service like SERVPRO when conditions get out of control. Conventional cleaning efforts do little to address foul odors in the property, and worse still, these scents can become trapped in materials, contents, and structural elements and prove even more challenging to remove without specialized equipment and practices. 

It is important to note that our SERVPRO professionals do not always choose ozone machines specifically because this equipment can be unsafe for humans and pet exposure. With our volume of portable units and our ozone chamber at our local facility, we can still appreciate the efficiency and thoroughness of this approach. In larger damaged areas where no living things exist or remain, we can install multiple ozone machines to address present odors quickly. 

These tools work by creating the chemical equivalent of ozone and allowing oxidation to break down the molecular structure of odor compounds. This gas generated is not breathable, presenting the risk to humans and pets around it. This gas can also infiltrate materials and contents, much like smoke did, to eliminate existing foul fire damage scents to leave no discernable odor behind. 

We know how quickly odor damages can spread throughout a property, and even with a small fire, you can deal with an entire house of secondary effects. Let our SERVPRO of South Shreveport fire restoration professionals help you through this trying time by calling (318) 865-4655.
