Smoke Damage Removal Experts

The blaze is out and things are quieting down. But there’s still urgent recovery needs, including technically challenging tasks. Soon it will be difficult if not impossible to completely remove smoke and soot from building surfaces, carpet, furniture, and possessions.

Without immediate fire and smoke damage restoration materials discolor and stain, metals tarnish and corrode, and odors become permanent. That means more losses and more expenses. Even glass is attacked and etched by smoke compounds!

Smoke damage can be just about everywhere and with time critical (even a few hours can make a difference) hiring a professional fire damage restoration company is a top priority. There’s simply too much at stake, and too much expertise and equipment required, to risk doing it yourself or hiring an ordinary cleaning company.

Any contractor you hire should be insured and appropriately licensed, but here it’s absolutely vital that you only call in specialists certified by oversight organizations in fire and smoke damage restoration. And they should be ready to start work immediately with 24/7 emergency service.

About Smoke Damage

Smoke removal is a major component of the fire restoration process. Every blaze is a bit different, but there are three basic types depending on the combustion temperatures and what’s burning — “wet,” “dry,” and “protein” smoke.  Each contains various combinations of thousands of compounds, hundreds of which are toxic, corrosive, and odor-causing.

When smoke and soot settle, they don’t just sit there.  There are chemical reactions, and many of those harmful compounds soak into porous materials such as building surfaces carpet, drapes and blinds, textiles, and wood.  Within hours there will be staining and other discoloration, and without absolutely thorough cleaning there will be additional permanent harm within a couple of days.  That includes those odors that never completely go away.

What’s more, smoke can reach just about anywhere in the building (including cooler areas) and often does.  It finds its way into air ducts as well as other places that only experts know to look for.

Smoke Damage Restoration

So thorough and often extensive smoke damage restoration is an absolute must.  Otherwise you’ll have to discard more possessions and face much higher repair expenses.  Here are the highlights of our specialty services for fire and smoke damage.

  • Before smoke removal and other fire damage restoration can begin we provide a thorough inspection and secure the building, completing an inventory with detailed documentation in the process.
  • Remove unsalvageable items, and isolate unaffected areas of the building.
  • Completely remove all ash, soot, and smoke with specific-purpose detergents.  Seal building materials where appropriate.

It may be necessary to use equipment such as dry ice or soda blasters to remove char, soot, and smoke from building surfaces.  It may also be best to remove furniture and possessions for improved treatment at our facility.  And absolutely thorough cleaning applies to more than just walls, floors, ceilings, carpet, furniture, and textiles.  Metal fixtures, trim, appliances, and electronics are also harmed by smoke’s acidic compounds.  Aluminum, brass, and chrome are particularly susceptible, as are marble, unsealed granite, and porcelain.  Smoke also makes its way into computers and entertainment systems along with other electronics and appliances so that they also require immediate treatment.
