I Cleaned Up the Fire Damage, Why Does My Walnut Park Home Smell So Bad?

According to statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration, a whopping 50% of residential building fires happened due to cooking mishaps. The kitchen is one of the most common areas affected by fire damage. Often the fires seem small in scale, and perhaps only minor visible damage was done, but unless the affected area is cleaned correctly, odor-causing smoke particles and residues can linger and give off a foul odor.

When SERVPRO addresses the after-effects of a fire in a Walnut Park home, often the homeowner has already attempted to clean up the mess. Our technicians clean the area with our special formulated cleaners and use both wet and dry sponges depending on the type of residue to ensure surfaces are thoroughly deodorized. Lingering odors can often be traced to porous items such as upholstered furniture, window treatments and carpeting can be a source of the odor.

Our Odor Control Technicians (OCT) have many resources to choose from, and they will use digital detectors to determine the type of deodorization needed based on air quality readings of the detectable smoke particles.

A very effective method SERVPRO technicians use is the ultra-low volume (ULV) fogger. This machine sends a fine mist of water or solvent-based chemicals into the air in the same manner as smoke from a fire. The chemicals get broken down much like smoke particles and penetrate porous materials just as the smoke did, overtaking and eliminating foul odors. We often use fans during this process to keep the deodorant particles suspended in air longer. In some cases, multiple techniques are needed to eradicate the odors.

You do not have to keep smelling the reminder of fire damage in your Walnut Park home. SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress is available 24/7 at (562) 431-9400, and our expert technicians can be on-site quickly to eliminate the odor and address any other issues that remain from the fire to make it "Like it never even happened."
