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.”
