Smoke Odor Removal
Smoke odor is a pervasive and stubborn odor that lingers long after the flames have been put out. Whether caused by a natural disaster, such as a forest fire nearby, or from an accident, such as a fireplace left unattended or a cooking fire that has gotten out of control, smoke odor can present a challenge to even experienced restoration professionals.
Several factors can influence the severity of the odor:
- Size of the fire. Obviously, the larger the fire, the more materials have been burned, and the more smoke there will be.
- Length of exposure. The longer an area is exposed to smoke, the more deeply embedded the smoke odor can be in all porous materials.
- Size of the room affected. The smaller the room, the more intense and concentrated the smoke odor can become.
- Materials that have burned. Different materials leave different odors behind. A wood fire smells different than a protein fire or a fire that affected mostly plastic materials. The type of materials affected may influence the type of products used to remove the smoke odor.
