What Is Thermal Fogging?

In thermal fogging, a thermal fogging machine heats a deodorizer that it then sprays out as a mist. The mist is a water-based and solvent-based thermal-fogging agent that can easily reach anywhere in a building, including places that other form of mitigation can’t (like small cracks, walls, carpets, ductwork, etc.) When the mist comes into contact with odor-causing smoke particles or germs, a chemical reaction that occurs renders the smoke particles or microorganisms incapable of releasing any more unpleasant smells. This all makes thermal fogging odor removal highly effective compared to old-fashioned cleaning methods where workers simply apply cleaners to surfaces.

Depending on the situation, thermal fogging contractors may use the technique in combination with other mitigation techniques like water extraction, pump outs, and structural drying by means of dehumidification.

Thermal Fogging for Smoke Damage

We most often think of thermal fogging for smoke damage, and in fact, it’s extremely important to use effective smoke and fire mitigation in the wake of a fire. The issue goes beyond getting rid of unpleasant smells. If you’re in the presence of the smell, that means you’re in the presence of invisible particles in the air that can cause respiratory problems and sometimes even cancer. The danger is particularly acute for babies, young children, senior citizens, and anyone who has a compromised immune system, but nobody is immune.

Although it’s not the same sort of emergency as if you’d had a fire, workers may also employ thermal fogging to get rid of lingering fireplace and tobacco odors. Tobacco odor can be a particularly tough smell to eliminate, but thermal fogging can do the trick.

Thermal Fogging and Ozone Deodorization

Ozone deodorization is another deodorization technique sometimes used in conjunction with thermal fogging. Ozone deodorization use electricity to create O3, the special kind of oxygen molecule you may have smelled after a storm. Ozone sanitizes by breaking down odors, microorganisms, and other pollutants lurking in your home or place of business.

Ozone deodorization is often the method of choice for removing odor from paper, books, clothing, upholstery, or other porous items. It’s a permanent remedy that does not damage the articles and leaves behind no lingering odor of its own.

Thermal Fogging and COVID-19

In today’s world, one additional use of thermal fogging deserves special mention. Many of us are worried about COVID-19, often commonly called coronavirus, to the extent that people are sequestering themselves, businesses are limiting their ways of interacting with customers or closing entirely until the epidemic runs its course, and local government is ordering business closings and event cancelations and placing limits on the size of public gatherings.

There’s reason to believe that coronavirus may linger on a surface and remain infectious for some time. That means that if coronavirus contamination may have occurred in a home or place of business, professionals should sanitize the building to make it safe for people to occupy. Thermal fogging disinfection offers a way of accomplishing this sanitization.

Preparing for Thermal Fogging

Once the experts determine that a structure is in need of thermal fogging, there steps help to get it ready for the process:

  • Close all the exterior doors and window.
  • Extinguish any open flames. This includes pilot lights. Turn off gas lines too.
  • Cover or disable smoke detectors.
  • Make sure that no people and no pets will be inside when the thermal fogging occurs.
  • If there are items you don’t want the mist to touch, take them out of the building or cover them with sheets or plastic.
  • Open cabinets, drawers, and closets to help the mist reach everywhere it should.
  • Let neighbors and the local fire department know about the thermal fogging so they won’t mistake the mist for the smoke of a fire.
