Deodorizing During Fire Restoration in Raleigh

Combating the odors of smoke and soot is a tough challenge during the fire restoration of your Raleigh home. SERVPRO techs often need to employ multiple procedures involving various professional products and equipment to produce the desired results.  

One of the most popular deodorizing techniques that SERVPRO techs use during fire restoration of your Raleigh home is misting. We use two types of mist deodorizers:

  • Water-based- Applied using an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) mister
  • Solvent-based- Applied using a thermal fogger

Two kinds of deodorizers contain exclusive neutralizing agents that assist in rendering odor-causing particles odorless. SERVPRO techs always brief the customer on the kind of deodorant before using it during the fire restoration process.

The Role of Ultra-Low Volume Mister in Smoke Remediation

The ULV mister that SERVPRO techs use in Raleigh homes atomizes the deodorizing liquid and produces a fine mist. The size of the mist particles produced by a ULV is between 20-60 microns and can easily penetrate most areas where odor-causing residues accumulate. 

SERVPRO techs also use a ULV mister to deodorize and seal ventilation ducts and air-handling systems. Several factors make a ULV mister effective in combating odors during house fire cleanup:

  • The mist particles are small enough to penetrate cracks and crevices 
  • The mister is lightweight, making it easy for the techs to mist in all directions
  • Techs can use air movers to keep the deodorant particles airborne for a longer time 
  • Restorers can use safer, water-based agents with ULV misters

Our goal is to restore your home “Like it never even happened.” If you need help dealing with fire and smoke damage, call SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh / Garner at (919) 615-1179.
