Fire Damage Can Be Cleaned Up

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your house. If you don’t start cleaning immediately, small-scale kitchen flare ups and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and strong odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, the smell of smoke will seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few tips on how to move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop spreading smoke, shut off your AC.
  • To fan out smokey air, position large fans towards open doors and windows.
  • Vacuum up ash and soot by holding the nozzle right above the soot- pressing down could cause stains.
  • Clean countertops and furniture.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from walls and ceilings, while using a vinegary spray to get rid of stains.
  • Clean every item in your home that has been affected, including light bulbs.
  • Deep wash or dry clean any curtains or clothing that were affected.
  • Use odor counteractants to deodorize carpets and window coverings.
