Understanding the Impact of Smoke Odors

Smoke odors are not only unpleasant but also can pose health risks to occupants. Lingering smoke particles may contain harmful substances, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can trigger respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Moreover, smoke odors can trigger emotional distress and anxiety for those who have experienced the traumatic event of a fire. Therefore, it is crucial to address smoke odors promptly and effectively to create a safe and comfortable living environment.

The Science Behind Smoke Odor Removal

Effective smoke odor removal requires a scientific approach that goes beyond masking the smell with air fresheners. At Restoration Army, we employ advanced techniques based on the principles of chemistry and physics to neutralize and eliminate smoke odors at the molecular level.

Source Removal

The first step in odor removal is to identify and remove the source of the odors. Our team conducts a thorough inspection to pinpoint areas where smoke particles have settled. We address these sources, which may include soot-covered surfaces, charred materials, and affected belongings, ensuring the elimination of the odor at its root.

Thermal Fogging

Thermal fogging is a highly effective technique used in smoke odor removal. It involves the use of a special deodorizing agent that is heated and released as a fog. This fog penetrates surfaces, fabrics, and hard-to-reach areas, neutralizing smoke odors and leaving behind a fresh and clean scent.

Hydroxyl Generators

Hydroxyl generators are advanced machines that generate hydroxyl radicals, which are powerful oxidizers capable of breaking down odor molecules. These generators are safe for use in occupied spaces and can be deployed during the restoration process to expedite smoke odor removal.

Air Scrubbing

Air scrubbers play a vital role in improving indoor air quality during the odor removal process. These machines utilize powerful fans and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters to capture smoke particles and other airborne contaminants. By continuously cycling and filtering the air, air scrubbers effectively reduce smoke odors in the property.

Ozone Treatment

Ozone treatment is another powerful method used for smoke odor removal. Ozone generators release ozone molecules that react with and neutralize smoke particles and odor-causing compounds. Ozone treatment is especially effective in spaces with persistent and stubborn smoke odors, leaving the property smelling fresh and clean.

Sealants and Deodorizers

As a final step, we apply specialized sealants and deodorizers to surfaces and materials to lock in any remaining odor molecules and prevent recontamination. These sealants create a barrier that ensures long-lasting odor elimination.
