AdvantaClean Has Proven Smoke Odor Removal Methods

Fires, big or small, can bring irreversible damage and extensive destruction to a house or business. Even a minor blaze can leave permanent soot stains in a kitchen or another room. Smoke damage can develop during any fire and often lingers long after the event if not cared for properly. Such damage to your Buford property can further deteriorate materials and drive up the cost of restoration.

AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford features skilled technicians to address all your smoke odor removal needs in Buford. While there may be some fire and smoke events that can be handled by DIY, the majority of them will call for a trained restoration team. 

What is Smoke Damage?

Smoke and soot issues can appear differently depending on the severity, location, and materials involved. Soot and smoke residues can harm various objects, creating lingering issues. For example, drywall and upholstered furniture can absorb scents and stains. While it may not seem that bad, such damage can generate further secondary damage the longer it sticks around. 

  • Smoke-related damage is not a direct result of the flames. This is damage brought on by whatever fuel fed the fire; wood, paper products, plastics, food items, clothing, etc.

  • Smoke can deteriorate materials and cause mass damage, yet the way it impacts is very different than the charring of the fire itself.

Smoke can sometimes leave a greasy stain layer that is challenging to clean. It also rises like heat, finding its way into crevices and materials where it roots down and stains. Additionally, inhalation is a serious health risk. Therefore, professional fire damage cleanup is always recommended. 

AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford for Fire Damage Restoration

Odors left after a fire in your home or business remind you of the incident. We get to work on your restoration project by assessing all areas of damage, issues with structural integrity, and the types of soils and soot residues present. Once we tackle charred debris removal, our team works to clean and deodorize to help remove odors. Some of our methods may include the following:

  • Filtration – Pulling particulates from the air is essential to eliminate pungent odors from a fire-damaged home. We have HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers to help us trap particles to cut back on foul smells. 

  • Negative Air Pressure – By using negative air fans, we can take contaminants from the air through negative pressure. 

  • Oxidation – We have industrial-grade hydroxyl and ozone generators to destroy tough odors permanently. 

  • Pairing – Thermal fogging equipment, such as Ultra-Low Volume Foggers, helps by dispersing deodorizing agents that bond to odor particles and make them easier to remove. We also have a variety of spray and wipe products in this category.

Depending on the situation, we may also open doors and windows to help with the ventilation process. 

Our Odor Removal Process

Something that sets our professional team apart from other companies and DIY methods is that we have proven steps that help us to generate the best results for our clients. When working on your fire restoration project, the process may go as follows:

  • Removal of smoke odor sources – We carefully remove and dispose of any contaminated debris and charred, unsalvageable materials. 

  • Residue cleaning – Our technicians thoroughly clean all surfaces to remove all odor-producing particles or residues that could generate foul smells.

  • Recreation – Some instances call for recreating the event that caused the smoke to penetrate the surface. As mentioned, our fogging equipment is excellent during this step. 

  • Surface Sealing – We can sometimes seal smoke odors using specialized sealants or paint.
