Our smoke and odor remediation services tackle soot damage and stains with effective removers while deodorizing the entire building. Soot particles are small and invasive, embedding themselves into building materials like drywall or porous items like upholstery. Unless it’s professionally addressed, soot lingers long after your property is restored. Smoke odor is potent and lingering. Deodorizing and cleanup service experts can work to prevent any potential health problems they can cause. Our experienced professionals have the expertise and advanced equipment (such as nano filters, air scrubbers, ozone generators, hydroxyl technology, etc.) required to completely remove smoke odor after a fire.
Our technicians have undergone rigorous safety training and wear respirators, rubber gloves, and needed protection suits while using powerful cleaning solutions. Following the restoration process, the team makes sure your property is clear of any hazardous odors or cleaning products.
Since there is no singular cleaning method to remove strong smoke soot and odor, we use various solutions depending on the affected area. This ranges from wet cleaning to a more involved scrub with trisodium phosphate. Areas with loose soot on hard surfaces may only require warm water or a dry chemical sponge. For more porous surfaces, we may opt for a stronger chemical or degreaser to get the hard-to-reach soot particles.

There are various techniques in removing smoke odor, and depending on the damage, some or all of these techniques may be used. For harder surfaces, the team may use multiple wet cleaning options with different levels of cleaners. A dry cleaning sponge or industrial dry cleaning may be necessary for upholstery or flooring.
