Smoke Restoration and Odor  Removal Process Los Angeles

When a fire has been extinguished, the smell of smoke penetrates your home, and the visible soot residue damage can be overwhelming. Even parts of the building unaffected by the fire can be impacted as this smoke odor travels far. During a fire, this unpleasant odor can infiltrate walls or be trapped in carpeting and furniture. The odor can make it difficult to live or work on the property and poses a health risk due to its composition.

Immediately after a fire has been extinguished, no one should enter the building as the odor of smoke can cause severe respiratory problems and the structure could still be unstable. Instead, we recommend you contact a professional smoke and odor remediation company. Here at Full Service Restoration, we offer professional smoke restoration and odor removal services to restore your property to its pre-damage condition. Our team of trained and experienced professionals uses the latest equipment and techniques to remove smoke and odor from the affected area. Here is exactly how we do it.

Our Smoke Restoration And Odor Removal Process

At Full Service Restoration, we follow a comprehensive and effective smoke odor removal procedure that adheres to all regulations and standards. The type of smoke damage your property sustains will determine the best plan of action we devise and the specialized equipment we will use during restoration.

Our smoke and odor removal process includes the following:

Assessment of property damage before smoke restoration


Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of the affected area to determine the extent of the damage. This will help us to determine the best course of action to restore your property to its pre-loss condition. We will also identify areas requiring special attention, such as fabric materials, upholstered furniture, or carpets.


We will install isolation barriers to seal off the affected area to prevent the spread of smoky odors to other parts of your property. This is particularly important in a case where the smoke damage has affected the air quality in your home or commercial property. Our technicians wear personal protective equipment to prevent inhaling chemicals or toxins the fire may have created, ensuring a safety smoke restoration process.

Air filtration

The air quality in your property can be severely compromised after smoke damage. Smoke particles and odors can linger in the air for a long time, even after the visible signs of smoke damage have been cleaned up. We will use powerful air filtration systems, including HEPA vacuums, air purifiers, and ozone generators, to remove smoke and odor particles from the air. This will improve air quality in the affected area and make it safe for the building occupants to breathe.

Deep cleaning

Smoke and soot can leave visible signs of damage on walls, hardwood floors, and furniture. Our team of professionals will use specialized equipment with micro filters to clean every area of the property. The type of cleaning solutions we use during the smoke damage removal process depends on the type of fire damage your property sustained. We use specially formulated cleaning products to remove smoke residue and odor trapped in fabrics such as carpets and upholstery.

We use a wide range of techniques to remove any lingering smoke molecules and odors from the affected area. This includes using professional ozone treatment, thermal fogging, or other deodorizing agents to neutralize any remaining odors. We use ozone generators or hydroxyl machines to ensure your property smells fresh and clean. The generator will discharge hydroxyl radicals into the atmosphere, breaking down the smoke particles and odor-producing molecules, entirely removing them. This will improve the air quality of your property.
