Thermal Fogging: The #1 Best Way to Neutralize Smoke Odors
The professionals at SERVPRO of South Cobb use thermal fogging to remove smoke odors from homes and businesses after a fire.
After a fire breaks out in a home or business, there are often lingering smoke odors that can be tough to remove. That's where thermal fogging comes in.
Thermal fogging is a process that uses thermal energy to produce a fog or mist. The fog or mist penetrates and treats an area with a thermal disinfectant, chemicals that kill microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and spores. The professionals at SERVPRO use state-of-the-art disinfectants to ensure that unwanted organisms are removed and do not come back.
SERVPRO of South Cobb uses thermal foggers to create a thermal fog that will neutralize the smoke odors in your home or business. We are dedicated to helping our customers through the entire fire restoration process, from start to finish.
The following blog post will go over when you should use thermal fog, the benefits of thermal fogging, and how SERVPRO of South Cobb uses thermal foggers to remove smoke odors from your home or business. Then, keep reading to find out why SERVPRO is many property owners' go-to company for fire restoration!
When to use thermal fogging?
Thermal fogging is usually used in one of two scenarios:
- When traditional cleaning methods aren't enough to remove the smoke odor
- When the smoke odor is widespread and permeates throughout the entire property
If you've tried cleaning the affected areas with traditional methods, such as airing out the property or using air fresheners, and the smoke odor is still present, thermal fogging may be your best option.
Thermal fogging offers many benefits, including:
- Effective at removing tough smoke odors
- Fast and convenient
- Safe to use in occupied spaces
- Leaves your home or business smelling fresh and clean
How does thermal fogging work?
Thermal fogging is a process that uses thermal energy to produce a fog or mist. The fog or mist penetrates and treats an area with a thermal disinfectant. Thermal disinfectants are chemicals that kill microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and spores.
SERVPRO of South Cobb uses thermal foggers to create a thermal fog that will neutralize the smoke odors in your home or business. The thermal fogging process works by heating the thermal disinfectant until it becomes a vapor. This vapor is then released into the area needing treatment, where it will penetrate and kill any microorganisms.
