One of the first things that SERVPRO technicians do while tackling an odor problem after a fire is removing the source of the odor.

- Clean up
The second step during the deodorizing process is cleaning. Smoke and soot residues can deposit on and even penetrate the various surfaces such as walls and ceilings. SERVPRO technicians clean different surfaces depending on the type of the surface and residue deposited on it.
