Let us help get your home smelling clean again

One of the most common questions we get from residents of the metro Detroit area is how to get rid of smells. SERVPRO of Dearborn & Dearborn Heights Southeast has been asked to address a lot of smelly situations including these actual scenarios we have resolved:

  • Lingering smoke smell after a fire
  • An injured bird took up residence in an office
  • Smells left from flooded basements
  • Overflowing toilet leaves residual odor
  • Skunk sprayed dog roamed house leaving its smell everywhere
  • Dead animal found in the ceiling of a partially constructed building
  • Odor remaining after a bio hazard accident

Every situation is unique so we first must inspect your specific case to determine the best method of deodorization. The most common methods are placing an ozone or hydroxyl generator in the affected area, and/or using SERVPRO proprietary cleaning and deodorizing products.

Small Fires Can Be a Big Deal

Even a small fire in your home can do a lot of damage. Luckily, locally owned and operated SERVPRO of Dearborn/Dearborn Heights SE offers a complete range of services to mitigate any fire disaster in your home regardless of how large or small it is.

To completely and properly extinguish a fire, the fire department may do a fair amount of damage your home. A tremendous amount of water is used to extinguish a fire – even a “small” fire. The volume and force of the water flow coupled with the length of time to drain and dry the area can damage many parts of the house, even those not directly affected by the fire. Fighting fires also results in some degree of structural damage. During a fire, there is little to no visibility in the house. By “venting” (cutting a hole) in the roof, firefighters are able to help remove the smoke, thereby improving their access and ability to see. Once the fire is out, firefighters may open walls, pull out cabinets or do other structural damage during “overhaul” which is methodically confirming there are no lingering embers in unseen places as those may rekindle causing more damage.

Whatever type of disaster strikes your home SERVPRO of Dearborn/Dearborn Heights SE is here to help. We provide complete board up and securing services as well as clean up services after any type of disaster in the greater Detroit area.
