A Professional Service Can Help You Eliminate the Smell of Smoke After a Fire in Lafayette

Homeowners are vulnerable to fire damage despite their best efforts to keep safe. A cooking accident, a mischievous teenager, or sheer bad luck can be to blame for flames erupting in your home. Fire remnants sometimes feel more significant than the flames themselves, and you may be finding smoke and soot around your home for weeks.

In Lafayette, fire damage meets its match in our SERVPRO team. As soon as you call us and invite you to your home, we focus on assessing the impact, prioritizing cleanup steps, and drawing up an action plan to restore your home as soon as possible. We are constantly available to help you in this difficult time.

How do I clean the air after a fire?

The steps to remove soot and smoke residue are straightforward. At SERVPRO, we focus on understanding the path of the fire and smoke, as well as the nature of each surface we need to wipe clean. Soot from organic materials is a cloud of fine dust, while human-made objects tend to leave a stickier residue. Our team has in its arsenal cleaning solutions to eliminate the residue while preventing damage due to their abrasive nature.

The air around you is a different matter. Your house may look clean, but the foul smell seems to linger in the air despite aroma diffusers and other deodorizers at your local store. By calling our SERVPRO crew, you gain access to industry best-practices to counteract odors. Some options available to us include:

  • Odor pellets- these are simple to use and can overpower the smell of smoke in your home
  • Thermal foggers- they work by spraying a fine mist that bonds with odor molecules and eliminates them
  • Ozone generators- these also attack smell molecules and dissolve them

We do odor elimination in concert with the cleaning and disinfecting of your home. You can trust SERVPRO of Lafayette to guide you through the restoration process. Call us at (765) 420-0077 and we will leave your home, "Like it never even happened."
