central - east central Minnesota -
proplock - 5/15/2019 09:09 we had a fire, got into the sub flooring, some wall, have a restoration company working on it. Question is imop, is there a smell removing unit, ozone? that would work in areas with slight smell? Need advise, don't wish this on anybody, TIA
if in Doubt - tear it out . . . . . . . . there are many items that can "Mask" the smell/odor, but at some point, that smell may come through (and leave as quickly). If there is any fire scaring, tear it out. If there is any smoke color, tear it out. I'm not one to believe in the soda/cob blasting - while it can get the finish off, it doesn't get the smell out of the wood grain. Ozone works, paints work, blasting works, but if the graining of the damaged wood is just right, some smell will come out. Not that it wouldn't be livable, but some smell will come out. Well, at least in our climatic/environmental conditions of Mn.
Sorry you have to go through such too . . . . . . . .
