Fire Damage Leaves Homes In Arizona City With Unpleasant Odors
Mitigating the effects of a fire where structural harm occurred and where personal belongings and furnishings sustained charring, soot deposition, and melting from the heat is only part of the mitigation battle in an Arizona City home. The skilled specialists at SERVPRO care about the condition of your house and the environment in which your family lives.
Any fire, including small ones, can cause your home's indoor air quality to plummet simply because of the way fire damage affects a Arizona City house. While the smoke does eventually clear and you can once again see from one end of a room to another without smoke blocking your vision, many smoke particles still remain. These tiny remnants of the fire make your home smell and can even cause slight health effects. Spikes in humidity can make these odors more pronounced, and increases in the heat can do the same. SERVPRO is always ready to help you make your house more comfortable by getting rid of what causes these pungent odors.
Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) relies on ozone or hydroxyl generators to eliminate or neutralize odor-causing substances quite regularly. For smoky odors, these might not suffice as such odors come from soot particles that continually break down and re-enter the air inside your living space. We have more effective methods that keep this from happening.
Using a method that mimics smoke and its behavior during a fire helps get thermal fog into the same areas that our physical tools cannot reach. Once inside nooks and crannies behind and inside structures (both within your home's framework and inside furniture and other objects), the fog's chemical compounds bond with soot and other odor-causing substances. Now heavier, these larger molecules become much less likely to find their way into the air where you and your family experience them as odors.
Some locations, particularly the bathroom and the kitchen, often become full of steam or experience higher temperatures than other areas of your home. Because these two conditions make slight odors more noticeable, we can treat these areas with long-lasting scented gel packs. When your kitchen or bathroom contain carpet, injecting odor control liquids becomes an effective option. Our skilled specialists are here to answer your questions and provide you with guidance on how each method can help your home become more inviting and comfortable.
Call us, SERVPRO of Casa Grande, at (520) 421-1894, so we can help you with your Arizola, Florence, or Coolidge home lose the leftover smoky odors caused by fire damage. We do more than structural mitigation - we also make sure everything, including what you cannot see, is just “Like it never even happened.”

Holy Soot! Trust SERVPRO When It Comes to Fire Restoration Services
Our team will be there to help and restore when soot & fire damage overwhelms your kitchen.
We Offer Reliable Fire Damage Services In Arizona City
The fire in your kitchen did not cause significant damage, but it did leave a heavy presence of thick smoke inside your home. There are soot and dirt on various surfaces such as the walls, flooring, and windows as well as on soft materials like the curtains and upholstered chairs. We can properly clean your home. Our techs have the experience and training to do the job right.
SERVPRO fire damage restoration services in Arizona City can include removing soot and debris. We use sponges and a cleaning agent or water to clean lighter or ashy residue from surfaces. For hard surfaces such as countertops, the crew may employ dry sponges, a brush, or vacuuming to eliminate smoke and fire residues. In many incidences, the team sprays or wets surfaces and then wipes them down with a cloth or dry sponge. When necessary, our techs can use scraping and scrubbing methods to remove dirt and soot.
There can also be a pungent smell inside the home after a fire that can remain after the cleaning phase. When this occurs, our SERVPRO techs may use air scrubbers, high-velocity axial fans, and industrial-level foggers to force out foul odors and pull in clean air to help remove odors. The team may also employ deodorizing equipment to help purify the air and remove smoky aromas. When needed, we can utilize thermal foggers to eliminate smoke odors inside your home. The machinery we use can remove strong smoke odors fast.
Charred furniture and contents can also contribute to the strong smell of smoke inside the structure. With the homeowner’s permission, our techs can remove and discard those burned items. We also can clean, sanitize and store all contents that we save and keep them in a secure area on or off-site until the team completes the job.

How Our Experts Clean And Restore The Fire Damage To Your Casa Grande
The majority of fire damage to Casa Grande homes starts in the kitchen or the garage.
Cleaning And Remediating Fire Damage To Casa Grande Homes
Casa Grande residents are used to the heat. It is a part of living in Arizona that many residents not only adapt to but even come to appreciate after several years here. No one, however, appreciates heat when it comes with flames and smoke that pours out of their home.
The majority of fire damage to Casa Grande homes starts in the kitchen or the garage. Each location has its difficulties when it comes to cleaning smoke residues or disposing of property too damaged for repair. SERVPRO response teams can remediate damage effects from either location and for the rest of the home.
In a kitchen fire, there are a large variety of materials that can catch fire and put out a tremendous amount of smoke. If the fire burns slowly, these residues stay primarily in the kitchen or spread throughout the home when it burns faster. Cleaning kitchen smoke residues, especially from burning meat are especially difficult.
Our technicians begin by wiping down every surface in the kitchen with a sponge and water or a cleaning agent. This initial cleaning provides more information about the type of residues present and how thick they might be. For hard surfaces like marble countertops or metal appliances, SERVPRO team members use the strongest cleaning chemical available since the surfaces resist pitting from the cleaners and residues both.
With other surfaces, the smoke residues can penetrate much deeper. Linoleum floors and plastic cases on appliances like coffee makers expand with the heat, allowing the residues and smoke odors to get much further. For fires that burned over a longer period, these surfaces can even form bubbles and warp from the heat. If this happens, team members dispose of the property as quickly as the homeowner allows.
Garage fires can burn faster than kitchen fires since there are often more flammable chemicals termed accelerants. There are fewer residues from the smoke, but the physical damage is usually much worse as heat and flames burn, crack, and split exposed framing and other structural supports. With these fires, one of our inspectors examines everything the flames got close to and determines if the structural items can be cleaned and restored.
If they cannot, our teams can remove and replace wall framing and minor supports. For large beams or the structure of a load bearing wall, team leaders always recommend bringing in a licensed contractor to makes repairs.
At SERVPRO of Casa Grande, it is our privilege to help return our neighbors to their homes after a fire. If you need us, call (520) 421-1894 today to schedule a visit.

Concerns That Might Surprise You After Fire Damages Your Maricopa Home
Fires can start in many places and damage can spread quickly throughout your home. Contact SERVPRO to put our experienced technicians to work for you.
Team SERVPRO Understands the Major Issues Affecting Your Home After a Fire
Common sense seems to dictate that the aftermath of a fire in your Maricopa home primarily presents as burned wood and other structural components followed by an abundance of soot. Although these issues are typical during fire restorations, they are far from the only problems posed by a residential fire. Hiring a full-service restoration company capable of addressing the whole spectrum of damages you might face is critical.
Before the restoration crew turns its focus to soot cleanup and restoration of charred building materials, the first Maricopa fire damage task needing completion for your home is water removal and structural drying. Firefighting can use hundreds or more gallons of water to knock down the flames that otherwise might consume the entirety of a residence. Water damage is as much if not more destructive than the harm caused by fire. Failure to remove standing water and the residual moisture within 24 to 48 hours risks mold damage and progressive deterioration of porous building materials.
The flooding caused by firefighting also creates slip and fall risks and the threat of electrical shock when SERVPRO’s crews are at work. Our management team assesses the danger before beginning the water remediation. Our fully-stocked service vehicles provide portable power generation for pumps and water extractors if the electricity is shut down for safety purposes.
As the water concerns recede, SERVPRO technicians begin investigating the extent of the fire damage. We use IICRC best practices when pairing fire damage cleanup challenges with the appropriate professional remediation products and tools. In addition to crafting a plan to clear away smoke and soot residues, we also evaluate the safety of retaining food found in cabinets, pantries, refrigerators, and freezers.
The heat of the fire can raise the temperature of canned and bottled goods, supporting the growth of hazardous organisms. Soot can be fine enough to work its way into jarred food by moving up the threads under the cap. Bulk and boxed foods are prone to soot, water, or firefighting chemicals tainting their contents. Even if food containers appear unblemished, SERVPRO experts often advise discarding the potentially contaminated food.
If the power is even temporarily knocked out during the fire, food in refrigerators and freezers are potentially ruined for human consumption. Although the seal might seem tight, soot again often finds its way into these appliances. Consult with the SERVPRO crew to make the smart and safe decision between on retaining the frozen and chilled food or discarding it.
The fire damage suffered by your home and contents can be wide-ranging and impossible for a layperson to assess thoroughly. Contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 for reliable assistance to protect your home’s integrity and the health and safety of you and your family.

How We Work To Overcome Common Fire Damages In Your Maricopa Home
No matter how severe the soot and smoke damage may be, our technicians will work around the clock to restore your home.
SERVPRO Can Help Restore Your Maricopa Home After A Fire Strikes
While smoke and soot damage are leading complaints regarding the effects from house fires, there are effects that many Maricopa homeowners do not think about as well. Firefighting is critical to avoiding total loss structure fires throughout the area, but this extinguishment effort can often come with lingering acute damage of its own.
Even with smaller and more contained situations, fire damages in your Maricopa home can still vary greatly. From the smoke and soot damages mentioned above to the need for cleanup and renovation, the list of what needs to be done to bring your home back to original conditions can feel extensive. Fortunately, with the help of professional restoration services, you can get to this end goal far more quickly.
Our SERVPRO professionals take some time to assess the farthest reaches of this damage and to determine the equipment necessary to restore your house successfully. Soot damages require concentrated cleaning efforts with everything from wet/dry sponges to high-powered vacuums. This process is intricate, primarily because soot can spread out a considerable distance from the heart of the fire itself.
Smoke damages often present themselves in the form of a harsh lingering odor to face. This effect is one of the final ones to get addressed because there are so many cleaning actions and other efforts that can negate the deodorization effects.
As was mentioned earlier, there are times when the extinguishing efforts can leave damages of their own for our SERVPRO restoration specialists to overcome. Often, this damage is present as pooled water throughout areas where fire hoses were necessary to overcome the growing situation. Our technicians treat these effects as part of the whole, employing water damage recovery techniques to dry out the affected areas.
