Odor Removal after Fire Damage

Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport TN

It is inevitable that where there is fire, there will be smoke. While we all know that smoke inhalation can be deadly, it also can damage your home and belongings. The reason the scent of smoke lingers even after a fire has been extinguished is that it contains particles that seep into every crack and crevice of your home, and into your belongings. While these particles may be difficult to find and remove on your own, Tri-Cities fire remediation experts at Spotless Carpet Cleaners has a solution for you.

Odor won’t just go away

You may be thinking that if you give it enough time that the smell of smoke will eventually go away. This will not happen because the particles found in smoke have settled into areas of your home that you are not able to clean yourself. However, there may be some things that you can do as a homeowner to help lessen the smell of smoke in your home.

  • Replace all of your air filters with HEPA high-efficiency filters
  • Wipe down and clean all baseboards, cabinets, and walls
  • Remove and wash all draperies and window shades (or send to the dry cleaners)
  • Circulate fresh outside air into your home by turning on fans and opening windows
  • Thoroughly clean each room of your home

While these steps can help, it most likely will not be enough to rid the smell of smoke from your home. Since ash and soot can soak deeper into permeable materials such as walls, flooring, and even brick or concrete, it is necessary to remove the soot as soon as possible after it is safe to enter your home again. However, often is the case that homeowners simply do not have the time or proper tools to deal with all of this cleaning. They are usually more focused on the safety of their family and filing their insurance claim for repairs or replacement of important items.
