Most people don’t know that soot and smoke residue is oil based and thus very hard to clean up. If not properly cleaned it can smear, smudge and spread more than anything. Soot can stain a lot of the items that it comes into contact with. Specialized cleaning methods, products, and chemicals have been developed to handle soot and smoke damage. A chemical sponge is a specialty product specifically designed for removing soot from walls and other surfaces. It can be used for extended periods of time before replacement and wont transfer soot from place to place while cleaning. It literally soaks up all the oil and continues to do so until it is essentially full.
Smoke can leave serious odor in any absorbent materials. Thermal fogging and ozone treatments are designed to remove this odor. A thermal fogger utilizing an encapsulate type cleaner is sprayed into the rooms of a smoke damaged home after clean-up of course. This fog circles around in the room covering every surface. It has a special chemical inside it, which its sole job is to grab on to odorous molecules and enclose them in itself therefore removing odor. And ozone machine works a little bit differently but a similar idea is still present.
An ozone machine produces a hybrid molecule of oxygen similar, well exactly like the ozone layer that encloses the earth. This molecule has specialized properties that allow it to remove odor by attaching itself to other molecules around itself and changing them in the process. An ozone machine runs for several hours around fabrics and other absorbent material and sometimes it is even enclosed in homes to remove large amounts of soot and smoke odor. This machine then produces the hybrid molecule and is disbursed into the air kind of similar to the way a space heater works. These molecules then attach themselves to all the other ones around themselves changing them entirely and this removes odor in process
After specialized chemicals are used to clean up soot and smoke damage it is important to remember that the areas should still be cleaned with traditional methods. Soapy water and barely damp cloths should be used anywhere that needs cleaning. But only after soot has been removed properly
