We Can Save Your Dayton Home From Smoke Damage
Smoke Damage from Smoldering Couch In Dayton
Everyone knows falling asleep while smoking causes many fires every year. A smoldering couch can spread smoke throughout a home. The couch can also burst into flames, potentially causing much more damage and harm to the occupants. The fire department extinguishes the fire utilizing either chemicals or water, depending on the type of fire.

Remove the Source
SERVPRO recommends that the source of the fire should be removed. Whether it is a couch that caught fire, or a grease fire on the stove, removing these items from the home can reduce the odor of smoke significantly. We review any other porous items that may have been touched by flames or heavy smoke. Fabrics and other porous items can be sent out for cleaning.
Hard Surface Cleaning
Tile and hardwood floors can be wiped down and cleaned of any soot and smoke odors. Walls can also generally be washed; however, in more challenging situations, the walls may need to be repainted to mask the odor from the fire. We clean all other hard surface items in the area.
Deodorizing Your Home
Once everything has been cleaned, the smoke odor may still remain. The next step is to close up your home and deodorize it. We can use ozone or hydroxyl generators for this purpose. Both processes work well; however, hydroxyls work faster than ozone and cover a greater range of compounds. Hydroxyls also are effective at penetrating porous materials such as clothing, rugs, and other porous materials in the home. Rest assured, SERVPRO will assess the situation and utilize the appropriate cleaning and deodorization processes for your home.
