Fire Damage Crews From Queens Discuss Deodorization Using Foggers

Any time something burns on or near your property in Queens, the smoke created by it can penetrate deeply into porous contents and building materials inside your home. A significant portion of any fire damage restoration project is the deodorization process. After something ignites inside your structure, pungent aromas can exist. If you call in a professional company such as SERVPRO, we can help you eliminate these burnt smells.

During some fire damage projects in Queens, smoke odors can still be prevalent after all burnt materials and soot residues have been removed. When this occurs, our SERVPRO crew can take other steps to deodorize your structure. The best way to rid your property of unpleasant aromas is to dispense masking and pairing agents that both cover up and chemically neutralizes malodor particles. When the smoke has penetrated your building materials and contents deeply, we can dispense chemical agents in a way that mimics how smoke behaves.

To dispense deodorant agents into the air, so it behaves like smoke, we must use a fogging machine to break down the chemicals into microscopic particles. Once the chemical molecules are around the same size as the smoke particles, they can then penetrate items in the same way the smoke did. When fogging a structure, we can implement either an ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging machine or a thermal fogger.

ULV foggers get used for wet fogging and they work by turning water-based chemicals into a mist. These units can break down chemicals to 20 to 60 microns in size. The only risks prevalent when wet fogging are the possibilities of moisture damage on horizontal surfaces.

Thermal foggers use petroleum-based or solvent-based chemicals in their fogging process. The machine vaporizes the deodorants into a smoke or fog that consists of extremely small particles. These foggers can break chemicals down to as small as a half a micron in size.

Deodorization procedures can be vital when attempting to return your house back to the way it was before the inferno ignited, “Like it never even happened.” To seek out aid from the industry's experts, call SERVPRO of Forest Hills / Ridgewood at (718) 381-3702 any time of the day.
