SMOKE ODOR REMOVAL 100% GUARANTEED
Smoke odor is a pervasive and stubborn odor that lingers long after the flames have been put out.
Whether caused by a natural disaster, such as a forest fire nearby, or from an accident inside your home, such as a fireplace left unattended or a cooking fire that has gotten out of control, smoke odor can present a challenge to even experienced restoration professionals.
Several factors can influence the severity of the odor:
- Size and proximity of the fire. The larger the fire the more materials have been burned, and the more smoke there will be. Even if the fire isn’t in your home, it can still be consumed by smoke if it’s close enough to the fire.
- Length of exposure. The longer an area is exposed to smoke, the more deeply embedded the smoke odor can permeate in all porous materials.
- Size of the room affected. The smaller the room, the more intense and concentrated the smoke odor can become.
- Materials that have burned. Different materials leave different odors behind. A wood fire smells different than a protein fire or a fire that affected mostly plastic materials. The type of materials affected may influence the type of products used to remove the smoke odor.

Odor Remediation Chemistry
Chlorine dioxide chemistry has become the workhorse in odor abatement, particularly in smoke remediation. When selecting a company to solve your odor problem it is important to know what they use and how they apply it.
The best chemical for true odor elimination is chlorine dioxide. However, there are two forms of the chemical and Stink Stompers primarily uses the gas form. A number of companies use a form called “stabilized chlorine dioxide” and apply this with a spray or fog. Only with a gas form of chlorine dioxide will one be able to eliminate the tough odors in the tough to get to areas such as HVAC systems, crawl spaces and every nook and cranny of furniture, bedding and draperies.
The ClO2 gas is released simultaneously throughout the structure. It expands from areas of high concentration (our equipment) into areas of low concentration. The gas will travel into every crack and crevice and more importantly, will expand throughout the duct work and HVAC system, effectively and safely deodorizing the entire structure in a single step.
Misconceptions About Smoke Damage
While no one will argue with the dangers of fire, it’s easy and natural to underestimate the impact of smoke damage. “Just deodorize everything,” is often the response. Unfortunately, this is one of many common misconceptions about smoke damage. Three other significant ones are below:
- Smoke damage is not a big deal – In reality, smoke itself can cause tremendous damage to a property, often even more damage than the fire itself. Depending on what synthetic or natural materials burned, or have entered your home from outdoors, the smoke can be highly corrosive.
- Smoke damage is easily resolved – Unfortunately, smoke exhibits some unique behavior and routinely affects areas that are impossible to see. Improperly handled, very unpleasant odors can persist indefinitely.
- You can clean up smoke damage whenever – As mentioned in point 1, smoke can be highly corrosive. In fact, waiting to mitigate often results in etching of metals, damage to marble, persistent odor issues and dissatisfied customers.
