Remove Smoke Odor Caused by Wild Fires
We currently have about 123 large wildland fires across the nation. They are primarily in the Northwest…Oregon, Washington, Northern California, Southern California. Montana is another… So we have currently about 2 million acres on fire… – Chris Wilcox, National Interagency Fire Center, in an interview with NPR.
Think about 2 million acres on fire. That would be more than taking the entire states of Delaware and Rhode Island, along with the District of Columbia and setting a match to the entire thing.
That’s a lot of smoke. Enough so that even removed cities like Seattle and Portland have been blanketed with dense smoke and falling ash. The air quality has been classified as hazardous.
People found that even though the smoke has gone away, the smoke odor has not. It was embedded in the carpet, on the walls, in the upholstered furniture and in the drapes.
Retail clothing stores found that the smoke had permeated their whole inventory and that the odor needed to be removed before the clothing could be sold. They certainly couldn’t wash the clothes and then sell them as new.
The only viable solution is to treat these smoke problems by using an ozone machine in the affected room for a few hours – or even over night.
Why? Because ozone is the best way to actually kill smoke odors – not just cover them up so they can return later.
Here is how you do it:
- Set the ozone machine in the room
- Plug it in
- Set the timer
- Turn it on
- Leave the room.
It’s that simple!
At the end of the ozone treatment the smoke odor will be gone. If it isn’t, run it for a bit longer.
