You Can Cleaning Up Smoke Damage

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your building. If you don't start cleaning immediately, closed fireplace flues and small-scale kitchen flare ups can cause discoloration and significant odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, the smell of smoke can seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here's how you can move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:
  • Shut off your air conditioning to stop smoke from spreading.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to suck out the smokey air.
  • When vacuuming ash and soot, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing down on the soot could create stains.
  • Use a cloth to wipe down countertops and furniture.
  • Wipe away soot from ceilings and walls with a dry sponge and use a vinegary spray to get rid of stains.
  • Clean any item that has been affected, such as light bulbs.
  • Deep wash or dry clean any clothing or curtains that were affected.
  • Deodorize carpets and window coverings. We suggest that you use odor counteractants.
