Odor lingering after a fire?

There are several reasons for lingering odors after you have fire damage. The fire damage professionals at SERVPRO® of Warrick, Spencer, and Dubois Counties are here to help educate you on why you could be having bad smells throughout your house after the fire is put out at your home. Here are a few: 

  • Type of Fire - The type of fire is determined by the heat and spread. Dry smoke will move fast throughout a home and destroy more structural pieces. Whereas, wet smoke is slower and smolders. Both of these types can produce different smoke types, but wet is the worst when it comes to odor.
  • Material Affected - What materials burn or char throughout the property can also impact the lingering odors present in the building, which can get determined by tracking the migration of fire loss effects throughout the structure. 
  • Time of Exposure - A big factor is the amount of time these smoke odors sit in your home and on your contents and even structure. The conditions that exist in the property can amplify their spread and severity. The longer your home is exposed, the worse the odor becomes.
