Cleaning smoke damage and soot in your home is not easy and without the right tools and knowledge you can actually cause more damage. During a fire, even a small fire in one room, smoke can fill up your entire home. Smoke gets everywhere from behind cabinets, light sockets, HVAC system, can stain your walls and even create smoke chains in the corners of your walls and ceilings.
Soot is oily and easily stains carpets, draperies and other household textiles. For this reason you must remove it before you attempt to clean or deodorize items. If possible, it’s best to hire a professional restoration company to clean and deodorize your home and household textiles.
