Smoke, Soot & Odor Removal
One of the most challenging aspects of a fire restoration project is that smoke and odors often affect rooms the fire did not even touch. Untreated, the soot and smoke left behind can continue to cause damage and the lingering odors can make the structure uncomfortable to occupy.
Of course, there are almost as many processes for eliminating odors as there are odors themselves and many odor control methods focus on simply masking the offending odor. At ServiceMaster Restore, we use an array of specialized products and processes to deactivate offending odors on a molecular level.
Air scrubbers use High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration to remove particles from the air, enhancing the efficiency of cleaning and clearing the air for safe breathing.
This process neutralizes odor using a strong deodorizer that penetrates everywhere the smoke traveled. It requires the removal of pets, plants and people for a short period of time.
Ozone is an oxidizing agent produced by a portable ozone generator that breaks down the molecular structure of odor molecules. Like thermal fogging, this process requires the removal of pets, plants and people for a short period of time.
This environmentally friendly deodorizing process removes odors and air particulates using OdorKlenz air cartridges in traditional air scrubbers and is safe to use around people, pets and plants.
