Protecting and Restoring Your Investment

The whole state of Texas reports over $500,000,000 worth of property damage every year. We share those statics with you not to scare you, but rather to help you prepare.

While the team leader goes through your home to assess your needs and creates a personalized recovery plan, the rest of the team gets to work on tarping and boarding up gaps in your home. After a plan is drawn up and discussed with you, we submit the plan to your insurance company.

Houston Home Health: Get Rid of Smoke Odors Before It Becomes a Persistent Problem

General Houston Home Health: Get Rid of Smoke Odors Before It Becomes a Persistent Problem Houston Home Health

Your house fire may have been weeks ago, so why does it still smell like smoke?

As the Houston smoke damage restoration experts, we’ve had many residents come to us asking the same thing, and the answer involves a bit of science.

Although we tend to think of smoke and other unpleasant odors as something ghostlike, without form or substance, the truth is that smells are actually tiny particles. These microparticles settle and embed into the wood, fabric, paint, and even plastics! Anything in your home that is woven or has a crevice falls victim to the noxious scent of smoke.

Certain items like plastic, resins, and other manmade products that burned leave an even stronger and more penetrating chemical and smoke odor. Powerful scents like these become more than a nuisance –disrupt your peace of mind and may even trigger adverse physical reactions such as headaches or irritated sinuses.

No amount of airing out, air fresheners, or wiping down will get rid of the acrid odor of smoke of this magnitude. However, there is a solution, and SERVPRO of Stafford/Missouri City can quickly offer relief to your smoke damage dilemma.

Houston smoke damage cleaning is a solution we have been offering for years, along with our water, storm, and fire damage restoration services. Since 1967, SERVPRO has been perfecting their odor removal method, and we proudly offer those services to you as your locally owned and operated SERVPRO of Stafford/Missouri City.

More than just bringing in the industrial fans, your smoke damage restoration team clears out the smoke by:

  • Inspecting your HVAC unit. Many times, your HVAC unit is responsible for spreading the smoke odors throughout your home. Your team will carefully inspect and service your unit to help eliminate the smoke odor.
  • Clean and Refinish Any Smoke Damaged Surfaces. Greasy residue on hardwood floors and smoke polluted walls are thoroughly cleaned and professionally refinished. This careful process also saves you money in the long run as you’ll find it unnecessary to replace your smoke damaged floors.
  • Deodorize and Restore Furnishings, Drapes, and Carpeting. Because these items involve fabric, they often pose the hardest challenge when it comes to smoke and fire damage restoration. However, your team will know exactly how to tackle these hurdles. We have a variety of professional odor removal techniques including the Showcase Premier Cleaning process for carpeting and a shrink-free dry cleaning method for your drapes.

Whether from a Sunday dinner that went amiss or a close call with stand alone heater, small scale fire and smoke damage can still cause big trouble. Let us take care of your problems with our time-tested home restoration services. Many of your Stafford and Missouri City neighbor’s have already trusted us with restoring their home back to health, and we can do the same for you.

Call us today to schedule an inspection and preliminary smoke damage treatment plan to get your home back to a smoke-free, healthy condition. (281) 403-2256
