What to Expect from Deodorization After Northampton Fire Losses

Fire losses can leave Northampton homes contending with overwhelming smoke odors following these disasters. Our SERVPRO professionals have numerous deodorization strategies and products that can help to neutralize odors after extinguishing the fire. Knowing how the process works and what you can expect from these phases and techniques can allow you to appreciate each facet of odor removal after a devastating fire.

Odors are not often the most pressing fire damage to Northampton homes, but it does not make it any less dire to address these concerns when the time is right. Even during mitigation, specific deodorizing elements can get introduced that can help to reduce the later time and effort spent removing lingering scents entirely.

Debris Removal 

Our SERVPRO team can begin the removal of debris and ashes from the house during the mitigation phase. While this does not have a direct effect on neutralizing odors, it does remove catalysts to worsen these conditions.

Controlled Demolition

Damaged structural elements and construction materials can also be a source of harsh odors and foul scents. Our in-house team of residential contractors can remove compromised materials and reduce powerful odors in the process.


Removing fire residues from surfaces and contents can also improve the severity of odor damages. Because cleaning and controlled demolition can aerosolize smoke particles and ashes, we can also use equipment like air scrubbers to trap airborne particulates.

Deodorizing Beads

The science of odor removal can involve many approaches, products, and tools to complete entirely. Beads offer a trapping function for moving odor molecules by absorbing these compounds and releasing a pleasant scent in its place.

Odor Removal Equipment 

When other cleanings and restorative actions have completed, our professionals can work on deploying our premier deodorizing equipment. Depending on the severity of these conditions, we can use thermal foggers with high mobility, or hydroxyl generators and ozone machines with a wide coverage area. These devices can neutralize or break down odor molecules on contact.

Clearing out harsh odors after a fire involves strong products and cutting-edge equipment. Our SERVPRO of Hampshire County team can make fire losses “Like it never even happened,” by calling (413) 324-1300.
