Fire Damage Can Be Repaired

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your building. If you don’t act quickly, closed fireplace flues and smaller kitchen fires can cause discoloration and strong odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, smoke odor will seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few ways to move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop smoke from spreading, turn off your air conditioning.
  • To push out smokey air, move large fans towards open doors and windows.
  • Vacuum up soot and ash by holding the nozzle right above the soot- pressing down could create unwanted stains.
  • Clean countertops and furniture with a cloth.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls and get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
  • Clean any 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.
