SERVPRO Uses a Variety of Techniques and Products to Remove Odors in Your Glen Head Home

A fire in your Glen Head kitchen often means that there was a protein fire, especially if meat was the cause of the fire. Protein fires usually leave a minimal yellow residue. However, it produces strong, pungent odors. The biggest issue after a protein fire is odor removal. Fires that do not include burnt fish, meat, or poultry cause odor, but not to this extreme extent. 

Do I Clean Surfaces First or Deodorize?

After a Protein Fire SERVPRO Fire Restoration Specialists Usually Clean Surfaces First 

Each fire damage situation in Glen Head is slightly different, so our technicians assess the damage and create a plan to restore your home to the preloss condition. Cleaning surfaces right away is crucial because the longer the residue sits on a surface, the harder it is to remove. Technicians may need to clean protein residue off every surface in your home, even if there is no visible residue, protein residue seems to affect more areas than just the kitchen. 

What Deodorization Techniques Do You Use After a Protein Fire?

  • Remove the odor source- if the burnt salmon is on the stove, get rid of it quickly. 
  • Mask the odor with masking agents that cover the malodor with more pleasing scents. 
  • Combine odor particles with pairing agents that either neutralize (wet fogging) or absorb the odor (thermal fogging).
  • Use enzyme digesters to break down the organic protein molecules that do not smell like CO2 and H2O. 
  • Clean the air with air purification equipment using filters and ventilation fans.

SERVPRO technicians work quickly to remove unwanted protein smoke residue while incorporating deodorization techniques. We make it, "Like it never even happened."
