Reclaiming Your Home from Fire and Smoke Odor Damage in Mount Vernon

Cooking brings many in Mount Vernon great pleasure – seeing family and friends enjoy a home-cooked meal and time together. Our hectic lives can leave us less able to multi-task in our home's more relaxed atmosphere, and this can lead to accidents in the kitchen. Grease fires only take a few seconds to get out of hand, so quick thinking and a handy lid can make a huge difference in how badly your home suffers.

Your home's entire interior in Mount Vernon can smell of fire and smoke odors no matter how many candles you burn, cans of air freshener you use, or hours spent airing out the house. Calling SERVPRO gets things placed in the right direction. We can perform mitigation that corrects both fire damage and the odors that seem to overpower your nose continually.

Odors do not appear out of anything. The odors you smell come from airborne molecules that broke away from larger particles. This is why fire produces generally the same type of odor, although different things produce slightly different scents when they burn. While we clean things up using different methods, these all accomplish the same thing – ridding your home of these smoke and soot particles.

Cleaning with soap and water might seem correct when the soot feels greasy like it does with cooking or grease fires. However, special cleaning agents provide us with a much better result, including a fresh scent immediately. Some surfaces hold more soot than others. These places often remain cooler than other areas, and smoke fills such areas more densely.

Getting things cleaned up and soot-free must happen before our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can get started with fogging and neutralizing the odors. Afterward, the particles that caused odors and possible health effects remain where they may have hidden before, during the fire. This happens at the microscopic level because the fogging binds these particles and makes them much heavier.

SERVPRO of Skagit County is always near homes in Anacortes, Sedro Woolley, and La Conner. Smokey odors and the physical damage caused by fire needs mitigation as soon as possible to protect your property, Call us at (360) 873-8744, 24/7, 365 days a year.
