How Can Soot and Smoke Residues Get Removed? 

Soot and smoke concerns are damaging on several fronts, as these particles can be highly toxic and hazardous carcinogens, but they can also stain and damage the finish of surfaces exposed. Removing these residues is vital for these reasons. It becomes an even greater concern when the presence impacts many people, such as the Sachem Central School District or those at The Bristal Assisted Living at Lake Grove facility. 

Is Deodorization Possible? 

Removing harsh smoke odors falls to capable equipment, such as thermal foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators. With soft materials in retail locations in the DSW Plaza, managing the cleaning and deodorization can protect investments in your stock and wares. Odor removal is often one of the final stages of restoration.
