Can fire restoration by SERVPRO deodorize your Morristown office space?  

Deodorizing is a very important component of SERVPRO’s fire damage restoration process. Our techs use various deodorization techniques and equipment to combat the lingering odors left behind after a fire incident. 

SERVPRO techs use four basic procedures to deal with odors during fire restoration of your Morristown establishment- 

  • Remove the source of the odor and the debris.
  • Clean the surfaces that have odor-causing residues on them
  • Recreate the conditions that cause odor penetration
  • Seal the surfaces exposed to malodors

That said, not all situations warrant the use of all these steps. For instance, the SERVPRO techs might not seal surfaces except in severe odor situations where odor removal might be too expensive or impractical. 

The science behind deodorization of smoke damaged properties in Morristown

SERVPRO techs use a scientific approach in mitigating the odor problem after a fire incident in your Morristown commercial space. The two things that make odor particles so difficult to eliminate are their small size and ability to penetrate porous surfaces. 

Odor particles can be as small as 4 microns or almost 25 times smaller than the width of a human hair, allowing them to penetrate even the smallest pores in surfaces. Furthermore, the heat from the fire causes the generation of convection currents that propel the odor particles, helping them impinge on various surfaces, taking them deeper inside the pores.  

SERVPRO techs use foggers and sprays to reduce the particle size of the deodorizing agent to allow it to reach and neutralize the odor-causing particles. Thermal foggers use heat to aerosolize the deodorant and recreate the conditions that caused odor penetration in the first place.
