What To Do After Smoke Damage

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

Dealing with the cleanup that comes post-fire damage is devastating enough, but what about handling the soot and smoke smell afterward? Often, it’s true that scents can bring back emotional memories, and the smoke damage is sure to conjure up some traumatic ones. That’s why, at SERVPRO of Cookeville, we specialize in deodorization and odor removal so that you can start the restoration process post-disaster.   

What Are Some Ways SERVPRO of Cookeville Can Eliminate Smoke Odors?

  • Our experienced team is trained to identify and eradicate offensive odors as a result of smoke damage. These odors are known to come from sources beyond the interior of your home in the Upper Cumberland. 
  • We have the training and equipment required to detect these odors, thereby eliminating them soon afterward. Our technicians have access to numerous odor removal products capable of penetrating through carpets, upholstery, and surfaces to neutralize the smell completely.
