Smoke Damage Can Be Repaired

Your house can receive serious smoke or soot damage without a major fire. Closed fireplace flues and small-scale kitchen fires can cause discoloration and significant odors if you don’t start cleaning immediately. It’s best that you address the problem immediately. Otherwise smoke odor will seep into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here’s how you can move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop spreading smoke, shut off your AC.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to suck out the smokey air.
  • When vacuuming soot and ash, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing your vacuum down on the soot could create stains.
  • Wipe down countertops and furniture with a rag.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls and get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
  • Clean any item in your home that has been affected, such as light bulbs.
  • Deep wash or dry clean any clothing or curtains that were affected.
