We Can Help You Restore Your Manhattan Apartment After A Fire
Manhattan's Fire Damage Restoration Technicians Point Out Various Types Of Deodorants
The odds show that if you live in an apartment in Manhattan for long enough, then there is a decent chance that something will burn inside your complex. Even if your unit does not initially become the victim of fire damage, the smoke coming from the blaze inside another group can still negatively affect your dwelling. Depending on the characteristics of the burn, partially burned particles or smoke can travel throughout your building.
The smoke itself can cause problems with your building materials and contents. During many fire damage projects in Manhattan, smoke can leave behind pungent aromas and soils or soot residues. During some situations, our SERVPRO crew notices that most foul smells go away once all burnt materials and soot residues get removed from the negatively affected structure. In other cases, where the smoke has penetrated your contents and building materials deeply, unpleasant odors can still exist even after all soils and soot residues have been cleaned.
When smoke-like smells tend to stick around, our SERVPRO technicians can use other deodorization methods. Most deodorization techniques are found to be effective by using one or a combination of a large number of chemical agents. Each type of deodorant that can be useful during smoke mitigation works to eliminate odors differently after fire damage.
One common type of deodorizing agent works by masking. These masking agents use more pleasant aromas to cover up pungent ones. A different kind of chemical called a pairing agent works differently by causing a chemical reaction. Pairing agents have molecules that chemically bond with malodor particles and neutralize them.
Filtration agents are other types of products that can be used during deodorization. Some chemicals, like baking soda, work through absorption or by absorbing moisture into the substance. Different products work by adsorbing malodor particles or capturing gases and holding them on the surface of the gent.
Utilizing a variety of deodorization methods can prove to be useful when eliminating aromas caused by different types of smoke.
