Smoke Damage & Odor Removal

In a property, chronic odors can be extremely offensive. Some of these odors can be hazardous depending upon its source. Regardless if the odors come from smoke, mold, pets or other types of sources, proper odor removal requires a professional.

With so many different types of technologies available to remove odors, permanently dissipating the source can happen faster than you think. Too many property owners attempt to mask the smell by using over-the-counter cleaners and fragrances.

How to Remove Smoke & Odors

Smoke and Soot can create an overwhelming smell after a fire. In addition to the other types of damage, soot and odors are important to be addressed.

Properly removing soot and smoke odors can be a detailed process. Any soot remaining on metal hardware, carpet, textiles or tile can create permanent damage.

At DeShano Restoration, we are certified by the IICRC and educated in the best process to remove soot and smoke odors. We have developed a best practice over the years that helps us attack smoke and soot in a systematized manner.

Vacuum Ash

Using a HEPA vacuum to keep dust levels contained, our team will address any lingering ash and debris present.

Eliminate present odors

Depending upon the type of odor present will determine which solution we use. Odors are neutralized using state-of-the art equipment and environmentally cleaning solutions.


Remove lingering soot

It is important to remove the soot to prevent future damage. As soot stays put it can cause a dangerous chemical reaction with the host material; creating permanent stains.

Depending on the type of materials burned depicts the soot type. Soot types vary between dry and oily- requiring different cleaning methods for each.

Oily Soot– using specialized degreasing solutions, oily soot can be carefully removed.

Dry Soot- tools such as dry sponges and HEPA vacuums can assist in effortless removing dry soot.

Clean and deodorize contents

For contents, such as fabrics, textiles, carpets, clothing and documents, our team can restore these items to their pre-loss condition. Any items that cannot be treated on-site will be inventoried, transferred and treated at an off-site facility.

Odor Removal

For odors that are not smoke and fire related, DeShano Restoration is equipped with a variety of odor removing technology. Since all odors should not be created equal, our experienced team of technicians can identify the right tool for the job.

Hydroxyl Generators

Safe to use in occupied spaces, hydroxyl generators are ideal when businesses cannot shut down or homeowners opt to stay onsite. Effective to dissipate smoke odors, they are also effective against mold, pet urine, biological odors and odors from a deceased body.

Hydroxyl generators are usually the first line of defense, safe to use and a cost-effective solution to odor removal.


Ozone Machines

For situations where all occupants can be evacuated, ozone machines are extremely effective. Within 24 hours, odors can be permanently removed. Since these machines convert oxygen to ozone, anything living must be evacuated. This includes plants, animals and humans.

Thermal Foggers

Thermal foggers are equipped with a smoke removal solution that neutralizes odors. As the fogging solution combines with the odor molecules, a chemical reaction occurs which dissipates the odor.

Cost effective and easy to use, thermal foggers are great for removing carpet odors. From pet urine odors to tobacco smoke, thermal foggers can effectively remove stagnant odors.
