How to Remove Smoke Damage & Odors

Smoke and soot can contain hazardous particulates which can create an overwhelming smell. It is important to choose a restoration contractor who also specializes in certified smoke and odor removal techniques.

Properly removing soot and smoke odors is a very detailed process. Soot that contaminates metal hardware, carpet, textiles, or tile can create permeant damage over time.

When you decide to choose Insight Restoration, you are in good hands. Certified by the IICRC and trained in the best practices of our industry to remove soot and smoke odors, we have developed a systemized approach for removal.

 HEPA Vacuum Ash

Our team uses a HEPA vacuum to keep dust levels contained. We will vacuum any loose soot and debris present within the affected area.

Attack Odors at their Source

We do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to odor removal. Since there are various types of odors, we will adapt to the type of odor present and neutralize it at its source.

 Clean and Sanitize Soot

There are two types of soot that can be present after a fire. To properly clean and remove the soot, a certified smoke and odor removal contractor must first determine the soot type.

Oily Soot: Oily soot requires a specific type of degreasing solution for effective removal.

Dry Soot: Tools such as dry sponges and HEPA vacuums are typically used to remove dry soot.

 Clean and Deodorize Damaged Contents

The Insight Restoration team can restore damaged contents such as textiles, fabrics, clothing, documents, or carpets. Any items that cannot be treated on-site will be inventoried, transferred, and treated at an off-site facility.

Odor Removal

For non-fire damage odors, Insight Restoration owns a variety of equipment for effective odor removal.

Hydroxyl Generators

Hydroxyl generators are ideal when businesses must continue to operate, or homeowners decide to stay on-site during the odor removal process. Safe to use in occupied spaces, hydroxyl generators are effective when dissipating severe odors.  They are also effective against mold, natural odors, pet urine, and odors from a dead body.

Hydroxyl generators are usually the first line of defense, safe to use and cost-effective for odor removal.

 Thermal Foggers

Thermal foggers neutralize odors with a specialized solution. When the fogging solution comes in contact with the present odor molecules, a chemical reaction causes the odor to dissipate.

Very easy to use and budget-friendly, thermal foggers are excellent in removing odors from fabrics, carpets, and textiles. Also, thermal foggers can remove odors from pet urine and tobacco smoke.

 Ozone Machines

Ozone machines should only be used when occupants can leave the premises for a minimum of 24 hours. Ozone machines work by converting oxygen to ozone, which can be hazardous to humans, plants, and animals. Within those 24 hours, odors can be permanently removed.
