Advanced Deodorization Techniques
If a thorough cleaning does not do the trick and sealing is impractical, SERVPRO utilizes equipment like thermal foggers, ozone machines, or hydroxyl generators. These resources emit particles that seek out and pair with the odiferous smoke solids, neutralizing the smell through chemical changes at the molecular level. This approach can be successful with airborne smells and malodorous particles that settled and even worked their way into fabrics, cracks, or crevices.
Even when your belongings are in good shape, and the cleanup is minor, the lingering odor can be overwhelming. Our SERVPRO crew has a variety of approaches to use, including deodorizing pellets, charcoal-activated filters, and even ozone air purifiers. Here are just a few examples of materials and possible restoration solutions; Porous materials like drywall, wood and furniture often require ozone treatments to remove the smoke smell. Upholstery, carpeting, drapes and other fabrics are often dry cleaned with special chemical deodorizers to neutralize the smell, then either steam or dry cleaned. The exact deodorization process will vary depending on the extent of the fire smell and the type of materials involved.
