On July 1, 2019 our friends at Rockefeller’s Grille experienced a malfunction with their draft system. The malfunction resulted in smoke filling the restaurant, forcing them to close.
Duckstein Restoration responded to the call. Our first responders were dispatched to asses the damage. Our crews were dispatched along with a thermal fogger. Thermal Fog particles are generated by a thermal process rather than by mechanical action. The fluid to be fogged is first vaporized by an increase in temperature and the vapor is then condensed upon introduction to the cooler atmospheric air.
The resulting of the process is the generation of extremely small particles less than 0.5 microns which is called a dry fog. Thermal fogging is an effective smoke odor removal procedure because it recreates the fire related properties of heat and pressurization. Porous material pick up thermally activated deodorant droplets in the same manner in which they picked up the smoke odors, closely duplicating what occurs during a fire. To watch the process in action, check out the video below or click here.
Smoke from any type of fire is comprised of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and soot. Depending on what’s burning, many other harmful chemicals also enter the air, and are inhaled into your lungs or latch onto walls, furniture, clothing, ductwork, and other areas.
When it comes to your property, knowing how temperature, the surrounding environment, particle ionization, and airflow patterns affect smoke distribution can help you better restore your property to normal.
