How We Remove Smoke and Cigarette Odor

How We Remove Smoke and Cigarette Odor | California State Restoration

Ever had a smell you simply could not get rid of as hard as you tried? Maybe it was a smoke odor or damage from a fire, cigarette odors, or any type of bad fumes. California State Restoration in Santa Rosa, CA has had to deal with smoke and cigarette odors for many years, so we have the right solutions for you.

One of the specialty pieces of equipment that we use is our gas-powered thermal fogger. Thermal fogging is an extremely effective odor removal procedure because porous material picks up the thermally-activated deodorant droplets encapsulating the odor attached to both the structure and atmosphere.

California State Restoration is skilled at eliminating bad fumes that can cause eye irritation, coughing, and general discomfort. An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that effectively removes particles, gasses, and/or chemicals from the air within a designated area. These cutting-edge machines draw air in from the surrounding environment and pass it through a series of filters to remove offensive contaminants.

Carbon filtering is a very effective method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to thoroughly remove contaminants and impurities, using a process known as chemical adsorption. The air scrubbers with a series of charcoal filters are turned on after the fogging is complete, so that they can do their job.

Thermal fogging is performed first and we then thermal fog the entire building. Please note that we always use a respirator while fogging, because we don’t want to ever inhale the residue that emanates from the fogger as it can cause serious eye irritation. The space in which we are fogging also fills up rather quickly and becomes difficult to see. For this reason, we always need to make sure we have two people operating the fogger--with one using the equipment and the other as a spotter/assistant.

This fogger is not only used in large commercial projects. If you have a home or apartment and smoke has been an issue for whatever reason, California State Restoration also uses this equipment for cigarette odors and after fires in residential homes, commercial buildings, and apartments.
