This was a situation where roommate or guest was a cigarette smoker and they fell asleep on a memory foam mattress which lead to burning and fire in the mattress.
The “cigarette smoldering in the mattress” smell permeated entire house. The source of the odor, the burned up mattress, had been removed by the time we arrived.
Because this property was a townhouse and because townhouses (condos) often share walls with neighboring units between which air flows freely we used plastic sheeting and non-stick blue masking tape to keep the ozone from traveling to areas that we don’t want to impact, the like their neighbors.
As with every job we use multiple air movers to distribute the ozone as evenly as possible throughout the property.
This condo in Cypress, CA ended up being a one-day job even though it had two-levels with 3-bedrooms, and 2-1/2 bathrooms at around 1,480 square feet in size.
The client was skeptical that the treatment would work and was very, very pleased when it did. He and his wife were super happy with the results and left us a really great Yelp review.
