SERVPRO helps Fremont residents with pesky odors

Smoke odors are a severe problem after a blaze. During a fire, the burning of materials creates smoke and soot, which often have an acrid and unpleasant scent. If you do not deal with smoke odors, the stink will linger and make your home feel unwelcoming.

One main concern after fire damage in Fremont is hidden sources of the smoke odor. You might assume that cleaning visible soot residues, such as on walls and ceilings, is enough to get rid of sooty smells. However, smoke particles are tiny and can hide in all kinds of places such as:

  • The rugs or carpets
  • Drapes, textiles, and upholstery
  • Behind appliances
  • In door and window frames
  • Inside the walls, in drywall, or the wall insulation

If you have a hidden source of odor, your home will continue to smell smoky. Thankfully, SERVPRO techs know how to seek out hidden odor sources and eliminate them. We can clean carpets and drapes, use spot cleaning on upholstery, and oversee wall insulation replacement.

For thorough deodorization, call SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont at (510) 737-8793.
