Odors are one of the troublesome byproducts of combustion and fire damage. When your home or business deals with these offensive malodors, direct action is necessary to overcome the smell and return the property to preloss conditions. Several products and tools are used in this process.

Counteractant Products

The first step that can be taken about odors from Fire damage in Southern McHenry County homes is applying and using counteractant products and chemicals in our supply. Often, products in this vein are used to absorb smoke odors as they pass through airflow pathways or the HVAC system. Beads and granules placed in small containers can considerably reduce odor severity at these junctions.

It is possible to reduce the severity of malodors after fire damage through the cleaning process. Removing soot and smoke residues can directly impact the powerful smells generated throughout the structure. This process weakens the concentration of odors throughout the house while also protecting the surfaces of building materials from irreparable harm.
