How Thermal Foggers Work to Remove Smoke Odors in your Home or Business

9/8/2020 (Permalink)

Even after a fire is extinguished, smoke and the odor that accompanies it will likely linger and spread to surrounding rooms.  Odors are often not as pressing of a concern in the earliest stages of fire restoration; however, it is important to remediate this issue as quickly as possible.  Trapped odors left for too long can become stronger and harder to remove as time goes by.

Thermal fogging is one of the first choices in deodorization because it is done using a versatile and lightweight unit that can easily move from room to room.  It works by superheating specially formulated odor removal solutions into a vapor that can penetrate porous materials.  Porous materials such as fabric and drywall are often the biggest culprits of holding onto smoky odors. 

Depending on how severe the damage is, other methods of odor neutralization may be used.  Other options include:

  • Hydroxyl Machines
  • Ozone Generators
  • HEPA-Filtration Air Scrubbers

Removing/neutralizing odors after a fire may seem like an impossible task, but our SERVPRO team of technicians can manage these conditions quickly and efficiently.  For more information call us 662-281-1881!
