Smoke damage is a serious concern for property owners, whether it's from a fire or simply due to tobacco use indoors. Smoke can cause lasting damage to a building's structure and furnishings, and the lingering smoke odor can be challenging to remove. In this blog, we'll explore what smoke damage is and how smoke odor removal is usually done.

What is Smoke Damage?

Smoke damage is the result of smoke particles and soot settling on surfaces and materials after a fire or other event that produces smoke. Smoke damage can affect the structure of the building as well as furniture, clothing, and other personal belongings. It can leave stains, discoloration, and a pervasive smoke odor that can be difficult to remove.

How is Smoke Odor Removed?

There are several methods for removing smoke odor, but the most effective ones involve a combination of cleaning and deodorizing. Here are some of the most common methods:

  1. Air Purification: This involves using air purifiers to filter out smoke particles and neutralize odors in the air. Air purifiers are especially effective for smaller spaces or individual rooms.
  2. Ozone Treatment: Ozone generators produce ozone, which can break down smoke molecules and neutralize odors. Ozone treatment is highly effective but should only be done by a professional as ozone can be dangerous if not used properly.
  3. Thermal Fogging: Thermal fogging is a method of deodorizing that involves using a machine to create a fog of deodorizing chemicals. The fog is then dispersed throughout the affected area, penetrating surfaces and neutralizing odors.
  4. Chemical Cleaning: Chemical cleaning involves using special detergents and cleaners to remove smoke particles and soot from surfaces. This is often necessary to remove stains and discoloration caused by smoke damage.
  5. HVAC Cleaning: Smoke particles can become trapped in the HVAC system, leading to ongoing odor problems. Professional HVAC cleaning can remove these particles and improve air quality.
