Can Fort Pierce Business Owners Remove Fire Damage Odors?

SERVPRO Fire Damage Restoration Provides Fort Pierce Properties with Odor Control

According to National Fire Protection Association data, 37% of all US fires were structure fires in 2019, with related damages costing 50% more than they did in 1980. Ft. Pierce entrepreneurs need fast-acting cleanup to minimize business downtime and asset loss from fire.

Highly-trained SERVPRO technicians perform commercial fire damage restoration for Fort Pierce businesses with industrial-grade tools and EPA-registered biocides. Commercial repairs are rendered to code while conforming to restoration industry best practices for fire cleanup.

SERVPRO Fire and Smoke Odor Control for Commercial Surfaces

SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians (OCTs) use several different deodorant agents to address fire damage restoration needs, including:

  • Masking agents that come in the form of time-release gels, cakes, blocks, beads, or wicks to provide pleasant, long-lasting malodor coverage
  • Pairing agents fuse with odor particles for removal and come in two primary varieties:

    • Counteractants neutralize odors by combining with odor-causing particles on a chemical level and changing particle properties or eliminating bacteria. Thermal fogging, which is typically used during fire damage deodorization, uses this type of pairing agent
  • Humectants, which are absorbent enough to combine with malodor particles. These particles then drop onto surfaces for easy cleanup. This is the main principle that makes wet fogging effective

Most fire damage odor control solutions contain both masking and pairing agents to cover malodors while chemically altering or eliminating the particles that cause them.

Business owners can call SERVPRO of Port St. Lucie NE at (772) 266-2350 to ensure that their commercial property looks “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Provides Safe and Effective Mold Cleanup to Fort Pierce Eateries

The Discovery of mold damage at a restaurant is never a good sign for business. SERVPRO ensures that mold remediation at your Fort Pierce eatery is done safely and effectively to minimize the spread and limit the damage.

Technicians at SERVPRO use industry standards set by the EPA and the IICRC during mold remediation of your Fort Pierce property. SERVPRO's mold specialists understand the biology of the mold and use a scientific approach to remediate the problem. Safety is a major concern during mold inspections, remediations, and removal processes. As mold can cause health effects, it is important to use proper precautions while dealing with mold. SERVPRO technicians use their extensive training and scientific knowledge to mitigate mold damage from your Fort Pierce restaurant safely.

What do SERVPRO Mold Specialists Want You to Know About Mold?

Here are a few things that you should know about mold that you see on your Fort Pierce property.

  • First and foremost, mold is a fungus that plays a crucial role in maintaining a balance in the ecosystem. Without mold, there would be decaying matter everywhere.
  • Mold propagates by producing tiny microscopic structures called spores that are airborne and found indoors and well as outdoors. These spores can germinate on moist organic matter such as wood, food, and fabric. Once they germinate, they form a filamentous network called hyphae. Some grow into the material just like roots of the plants and begin to damage it, and others spread across and bear spores on top.
  • As spores are ubiquitous, controlling the moisture is the key to prevent germination of the spores and developing mold.

Since your establishment caters to hungry customers, our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians utilize only food-grade antimicrobial during the treatment. We can liaise with your insurance carrier and the local board to ensure a safe treatment is achieved.
