What To Do After Smoke Damage Has Happened?
We all know how destructive fire can be in a house. However, many people are unaware of the other harmful elements of a fire.

Repairing Smoke Damage
Your home can undergo serious smoke damage without a major fire breaking out. If you don’t start cleaning immediately, smaller kitchen flare ups and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and strong odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, smoke will seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few ways to quickly cleanup any smoke damage:
- Turn off your AC to stop spreading smoke.
- To suck out smoke, position large fans towards open doors and windows.
- When vacuuming ash and soot, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing down on the soot could cause stains.
- Use a rag to wipe down countertops and furniture.
- Wipe away soot from walls and ceilings with a dry sponge, while using a vinegary spray to wipe away stains.
- Clean every item that has been affected, such as light bulbs.
- Deep wash or dry clean any curtains or clothing that were affected.
- Deodorize carpets and window coverings. We suggest that you use odor counteractants.
