Smoke Damage Can Be Cleaned Up

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your home. If you don’t act quickly, smaller kitchen flare ups and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and significant odors. It’s best that you address the problem immediately. Otherwise the smell of smoke can seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few tips on how to quickly cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop spreading smoke, shut off your HVAC system.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to suck out the smokey air.
  • Vacuum up soot and ash by holding the nozzle right above the soot- pressing down could create unwanted stains.
  • Clean countertops and furniture.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from walls and ceilings. Meanwhile, get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
  • Clean every item that has been affected, such as 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.
