What Are the Smoke Odor Damage and Removal Methods Used in Oro Valley?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

Inky black smoke fills the air. We restore smoke odor and damage 24-hours a day in Pima County.

Our Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East technicians have the specialized training and skill required to neutralize and remove smoke odor from homes and businesses in Oro Valley. Here are descriptions of smoke removal equipment we use:

Air Scrubber or Filter

  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning system (HVAC) air scrubber or a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) air purifier can capture larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator

  • An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging

  • Thermal fogging is an intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator

  • A hydroxyl generator is a slower and gentler alternative to ozone. These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.

Vapor Modification

  • Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor
