You Can Cleaning Up Smoke Damage

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 start cleaning immediately. It’s best that you address the problem immediately. Otherwise smoke odor will soak into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few ways to move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:

  • Turn off your air conditioning to stop spreading smoke.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to push out the smokey air.
  • Vacuum up ash and soot by holding the nozzle right above the soot- pressing down could create stains.
  • Clean countertops and furniture.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls, 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.
  • Deodorize carpets and window coverings. We suggest that you use odor counteractants.
