Smoke Odor Removal in Confined Areas

Confined areas could mean a closet, a drawer, drop ceiling, or a crawlspace. Smoke odor gets easily trapped in these areas, becoming a pervasive problem, so it is pertinent they get cleaned and deodorized.

Basic Method

  1. Check for safety hazards.
  2. Remove any charred debris.
  3. Using a pump-up sprayer, contact spray on or around the surfaces with Unsmoke 9-D-9 diluted at 3-6 oz per gallon of water.
  4. Clean the structure and durable contents with your choice of degreaser/fire cleaner diluted per label instructions in a pump-up sprayer. Agitate the area with a sponge, and then towel dry. Unsmoke 9-D-9 can be added to Degrease-All for extra deodorization during this step.
  5. Polish finished wood with mixture of one (1) gallon of Unitex Luster Lemon Oil Polish and two (2) ounces of Unsmoke Thermal 55.
  6. Thermal fog the structure using Unsmoke Thermal 55 in a Thermal Gen Jr. Fogger. Small items can be moved to another location and covered with poly sheeting if needed.
  7. Place an ozone machine at the odor’s source and let it operate for 24-28 hours as required.
  8. Place an Unsmoke Bad Odor Block or a Fresh Wave IAQ Gel in any areas close to the odor source.

Warning and Cautions:
Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
