Repairing Fire Damage

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your house. Closed fireplace flues and small-scale kitchen flare ups can cause discoloration and significant odors if you don’t act quickly. It’s best that you address the problem immediately. Otherwise the smell of smoke will seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here’s how you can quickly cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop smoke from spreading, shut off your air conditioning.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to fan out the smokey air.
  • When vacuuming ash and soot, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing your vacuum down on the soot could cause stains.
  • Wipe down hard surfaces.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from walls and ceilings and get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
  • Clean any item in your house that has been affected, including light bulbs.
  • Dry clean or deep wash any clothing or curtains that were affected.
  • Deodorize carpets and window coverings using odor counteractants.
