Fire Damage Can Be Cleaned Up

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your building. Small-scale fires and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and significant odors if you don’t act quickly. Unless you address the problem immediately, the smell of smoke can soak 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, turn off your HVAC system.
  • To suck 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 create unwanted stains.
  • Use a cloth to clean hard surfaces.
  • Wipe away soot from ceilings and walls with a dry sponge and get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
  • Clean any item in your house that has been affected, such as light bulbs.
  • Dry clean or deep wash any curtains or clothing that were affected.
  • Deodorize window coverings and carpets using odor counteractants.
