Smoke odour is caused by smoke particles settling into surfaces. It is one of the hardest smells to get rid of. Fortunately, there are lots of pieces of equipment that claim they can remove these particles.

Most people buy air purifiers and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arrestor) filters to tackle unpleasant smells in their home. But they can only remove particles that are at least 0.3 micronsin size, and some smoke particles can be as small as 0.1 microns.
Just like the smoke particles, the harmful chemicals they produce are so tiny they can pass through the filter and not get removed.
Air purifiers can get rid of some of the particles and chemicals in the air, and will probably reduce the smell a bit. But they cannot eliminate it entirely, so it could continue to linger.
Finding an air purifier and filters that can tackle smoke odour could be expensive. Professionals, on the other hand, should already have the right equipment for your problem and room size. Their odour removal services will effectively tackle the smell, and save you buying the equipment yourself.
Ozone is a colourless, pungent gas that oxidises particles and turns them into a new molecule that does not smell. It can eliminate odours anywhere it is able to flow, and even remove smoke particles from surfaces.
However, overexposure to ozone may be dangerous as it reduces the amount of air you breathe in. If you don’t leave the room during treatment, wait for the gas to decompose afterwards, or ventilate the area before you re-enter, your health could be at risk.
Plants and materials like leather, rubber, and some plastics must not be in the room when exposed to ozone as they can get damaged, too.
Only professionals should use ozone generators. They know how to maximise results, have the personal protective equipment to keep themselves safe, and will let you know when you can be back in your home.
There are few tools that you can purchase and safely use that can remove smoke particles. So, you should bring in odour neutralisation specialists, like ICE Cleaning’s technicians, instead. They can use the latest deep cleaning tool sin the most optimal way and eliminate the smell for good.
