Thermal Fogging for Smoke Odors in Shreveport Homes
Deodorization is one of the most substantial obstacles most Shreveport homeowners face after a fire. While many opt for the experience and professionalism of accredited restoration firms to handle soot and structural damage, odors can spread far beyond the ignition point to threaten every type of material present on your property. Finding the appropriate solution to this problem is often a challenge for residents who do not have the deep pool of resources and recovery tools available to our SERVPRO team.
Professional Grade and Preparation Needed
Thermal fogging machines are one of the best lines of defense against fire damage odor in Shreveport properties. With multiple solutions available to suit any situation, our trained fire restoration professionals can tailor our response and actions to the severity of odor concerns in the house and what materials have become affected by the conditions. Understanding how thermal fogging works can help you to appreciate how ideal these machines are for most fire odor removal needs.
Can Reduce Pack-Outs for Cleaning and Deodorizing
The use of thermal foggers after a fire is commonplace for our SERVPRO team under certain conditions, as this deodorization process replicates how materials became smoke-damaged in the first place. Through the use of both heat and pressure, porous materials can open more and become exposed to the chemical fog that can neutralize these harsh odors on contact. By the use of this system, we can often reduce the need for material removal when other structural damages do not exist.
There Are Advantages and Some Disadvantages to Thermal Fogging
Another advantage of choosing thermal fogging is the portability of these machines. Unlike the units our professionals also use like ozone machines and hydroxyl generators, thermal fogging devices can often get carried throughout the home to expose a greater area to the neutralizing agents. These tools are also ideal for use with softer materials found throughout the property as well, including carpeting, upholstery, and clothing. However, some fogging products require removal of plants, pets, and people for a period of time.
While our professionals have multiple tools and approaches to eliminate smoke odors after a fire, thermal fogging can be a smart choice. Our SERVPRO of South Shreveport team arrives with the full measure of our fire recovery equipment and our experienced personnel to quickly make loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” Contact us for any assistance you need recovering from a fire at (318) 865-4655.
