Cleaning smoke damage and soot in your home are 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.
Removing the smell can be a tricky thing after a home fire if you don’t know what you’re doing. First Restoration Services employees certified fire smoke restoration professionals for all our fire smoke cleaning removal jobs. We have the experience and the correct tools to get the job completed correctly the first time. Sometimes a homeowner will consider a general contractor/builder they are familiar with for the fire damage cleanup. However, the smoke smell removal is a process they (builder/contractor) have never gone through before and don’t have any previous job experience. As a homeowner, the last thing you want to do is hire a contractor to repair and clean your home after a fire only for it to still smell like smoke.
