Smoke can leave behind far-reaching effects - we can help!

When it comes to fire restoration, smoke can cause extensive damage to every surface in your home. Whether it's a malfunctioning heating appliance, fuel-oil soot from a flue, or a cooking mishap that leads to a fire, smoke can leave behind stubborn soot and unpleasant odors.

Unlike water damage, smoke damage isn't confined to specific areas. Hot smoke can travel to cooler parts of your home and even rise to higher levels. Plumbing chases and HVAC ducts often serve as pathways, spreading smoke from the basement to upper floors.

To assess the extent of smoke damage, inspect various items in your home, including drapery, carpeting, rugs, upholstered furniture, items in cabinets and closets, artwork, and photography. Keep children, pets, and other family members away from the affected areas to prevent further contamination.

It's crucial to exercise caution and avoid turning on any appliances until they have been inspected by a professional. This ensures safety and prevents potential complications.

Contents to inspect for smoke damage

  • Drapery, carpeting, rugs, and upholstered furniture
  • Items in cabinets and closets, because they too may be affected
  • Artwork and photography
  • Keep children, pets, and other family members away from damaged areas
  • Do not turn on any appliances until they have been checked by a professional

We're experts in repairing all types of smoke damage

When it comes to smoke damage restoration, understanding the different types of smoke damage is crucial for effective repair. "Wet" smoke, caused by slow smoldering fires, leaves a sticky residue that can be challenging to clean compared to the more powdery ash of "dry" smoke from fast-burning fires. Protein fires, resulting from food fires, leave a thin film that is difficult to detect visually but produces strong odors requiring specific techniques for effective elimination.

Soot damage from fuel oil fires and furnace back puffing is visibly apparent and requires specialized cleaning methods to avoid exacerbating the problem. Electrical fires can also leave persistent odors that need to be addressed.

If you're planning to sell your home and there are lingering odors from previous fire damage or from smoking cigarettes or cigars inside, it's crucial to act before your first open house. Potential buyers can be instantly deterred by unpleasant smells.
