How Do Thermal Foggers Work to Remove Smoke Odors?

6/24/2020 (Permalink)

Fog After your home suffers fire damage, you need a team of professionals to assist you. Call SERVPRO right away! We are always available.

Smoke and burning odors can spread quickly through your Spokane home after a structure fire, but we have efficient removal tools to help. 

As with many of the fire loss effects that your Spokane home can experience after a disaster, odors can spread quickly from the ignition point throughout adjacent property areas. Even with a prompt extinguishment of the blaze, conditions like scents and soot can continue to spread throughout the house until professional restoration practices can address these concerns.

While much of the fire damage in Spokane homes must get resolved as quickly as possible, odors are often not as pressing of a concern in the earliest stages of recovery. Cleaning and restoration actions can agitate existing trapped odors and harsh conditions in the house, making deodorization more effective and permanent when completed near the end of the premier cleaning phase. Thermal fogging is often one of the first choices in deodorization, as it is a versatile and lightweight unit that can easily move from one damaged area of your house to another. By superheating odor removal solutions to a mist/vapor, the result can penetrate porous materials like fabrics and drywall to neutralize trapped odors. 

Are There Other Odor Removal Tools that SERVPRO Technicians Use? 

While thermal foggers might be a popular choice by our SERVPRO technicians, it is by no means one of the only options. There are varying degrees of odor neutralization based on where the damage is, how severe the situation has become, and if the occupants of the house are still present. Some of the other odor removal tools that we can utilize include:

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

Removing or neutralizing odors that fires can leave behind might seem like a considerable task, but our SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane team can manage these conditions quickly. We have several deodorizing tools to remove smoke and burning scents permanently. Give us a call anytime you need us at (509) 474-9144.
