Smoke and Soot Smell Removal
REMOVE THE SOURCE
The first and most important step in smoke odor removal is to remove the source of the odor(s). This involves removing burnt items, such as cabinets, furniture, drywall, and non-salvageable contents. The items can be either discarded or restored, depending on their condition.
SERVPRO of Northwest Onatrio will use a high-efficiency (HEPA) air scrubber which can remove 99.97% of particulates from the air. Removing these airborne particulates removes additional source materials for odors.
OZONE GENERATION. This is one of the most popular and familiar processes for removing airborne smoke odor molecules, including hard-to-neutralize protein smoke. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer that neutralizes odorous molecules by releasing additional oxygen into the air. Customers should not be present when an ozone generator is in operation Ozone works best in a controlled environment, such as an ozone chamber.
All salvageable items should be clean with approved products. Interior walls and hard surfaces should be cleaned. SERVPRO of Northwest Ontario will also clean inside cabinets, drawers, and closets, and wash household items, too.
Air ducts should be cleaned by professionals to preventing the HVAC system from re-contaminating areas that have been cleaned.
