Unwanted odors can overwhelm a home and its occupants. If you are dealing with strong odors in your home or automobile, then our next level Orlando thermal fogging odor removal may be the route for you.

What is Thermal Fogging?

Thermal Fogging uses a special solvent-based deodorizer that is heated and applied as a dry fog/smoke. Thermal foggers rely on a deodorizing solution that is vaporized in the fogger then blown into the room permeating all of the contents and structural elements. The vaporized cleaning solution/smoke it creates, will actually pair with the unwanted odor molecules to absorb them and rid the premise of the smell. This process is quite effective when combined with necessary cleaning. This makes it much more effective when dealing with strong odors in the home as it delivers very small smoke particles deep into all areas of the home. Anywhere smoke can reach, our deodorizer can help with eliminating odors, which is almost everywhere. Walls, carpet, tiny cracks and crevices or the pores of most surfaces.

It’s also easier to use and is safer on most surfaces than water based deodorizers, most commonly used when limited to cleaning of the carpet only. It is far more effective against nearly all odors. The fog will leave a pleasant odor behind to neutralize any unwanted smells such as pet odor or dog dander, as well as tobacco, smoke and marijuana, stale air, mold, mildew, pets, burnt food, fireplace and any other lingering odor without the use of harsh chemicals. It’s ideal for your home, business and vehicles. That’s why Like New Carpet Care takes it a next step further than just carpet cleaning, as we know odor removal is one of the best ways to transform your home into a freshly cleaned and smelling oasis.

Why Thermal Fogging For Odor Removal?

Using thermal fogging for odor removal is the preferred method because it not only gets into the carpet but penetrates the entire home, penetrates the walls and most other areas of the home where the vast majority of the dog dander odor, tobacco odor, smoke odor and other unwanted odors will subside. It is an excellent deodorization method for many types of odors in the home.

Dog Dander Odor Removal – Many think cleaning of the carpet will rectify strong dog dander odors in the home. Though cleaning the carpet is a vital step in the process to rectify animal dander odors, many times the severity of the odor is so strong it attaches itself to all areas of the home. Walls, Hvac and other porous surfaces are effected by the animal dander odor.

Tobacco Odor Removal – Tobacco smoke can completely change a homes perception. Not only does the surfaces such as ceilings and walls turn a yellowish color, but the odor can be overwhelming and engulf the home with an unwanted tobacco smoke smell.

Marijuana Odor Removal – This may not seem common, but marijuana is becoming a part of everyday living for Americans. And in some extreme circumstances illegal marijuana grows can engulf the home in an unwanted odor.

Before Thermal Fogging of Your Home

Follow these steps to prepare for thermal fogging of your home.

Ideally your home is empty, though we understand this is not always possible or a common scenario. Here are some directions for what to do before we come and use our thermal fogger in your home.

  • Make sure that all individuals and pets have left the area.
  • You many want to notify the local fire department about your intentions. As we have seen neighbors call the fire department when they see “smoke” escaping outside from the thermal fog deodorization.
  • Shut off all open flames, including pilot lights.
  • Cover or disable smoke detectors.
  • Cover fish tanks and food containers.
  • Cover furniture and other high valuables with sheets or plastic
  • Close all exterior windows and doors.
  • Open all cabinets, closets and drawers in the affected area.

If the home is empty then not all the above will apply. Thermal fogging can leave behind some residual that needs to be wiped down in the coming days. This is natural, and we do what we can during the application process to apply properly for the least amount of left behind residual.
