In order for the smell of smoke to be eliminated during the fire restoration process, it’s important that appropriate and immediate action is taken. Clothing, upholstered furniture, draperies and carpets can usually be refurbished, unless they have been severely scorched. It is essential to get professional help from an experienced fire damage company.
The odor of smoke can remain in draperies, carpets, upholstered furniture and clothing if they are not properly deodorized. A fire restoration professional uses special deodorizing procedures that actually breaks up the smoke molecules to eliminate the smell.
Smoke enters, and can remain, in and between the walls of living spaces. If it is not correctly removed, the odor of smoke will recur from time to time, especially during damp periods. This is one more reason why prompt action must be taken to have smoke odor removed professionally.
If an attic was insulated before the fire, it might be necessary to completely remove the insulation. Unfortunately, insulation can’t be cleaned and retains smoke odors, so it will have to be replaced. Depending on the amount of smoke damage, the walls and ceilings may need to be cleaned and repainted.
To remove soot from upholstered furniture, draperies and carpets, fire restoration professionals use the right equipment, appropriate chemicals, and, because they are experienced, they know how to use them.
