Fire Damage Can Be Cleaned Up

Your house can receive serious soot or smoke damage without a major fire. If you don't start cleaning immediately, smaller kitchen fires and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and strong odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, the smell of smoke can soak into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few ways to quickly cleanup any smoke damage:
  • To stop spreading smoke, turn off your HVAC system.
  • To push out smoke, put large fans by open windows and doors.
  • When vacuuming soot and ash, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing your vacuum down on the soot could create stains.
  • Use a rag to clean countertops and furniture.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls and use 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 window coverings and carpets. We suggest that you use odor counteractants.
