Fire Damage Can Be Cleaned Up

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your building. Small-scale flare ups and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and significant odors if you don’t act quickly. It’s best that you address the problem immediately. Otherwise the smell of smoke can soak into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here’s how you can move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:

  • Turn off your AC so smoke won’t spread.
  • To suck out smoke, position large fans towards open windows and doors.
  • Vacuum up soot and ash by holding the nozzle right above the soot. Pressing down could create unwanted stains.
  • Use a cloth to clean hard surfaces.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls. Meanwhile, use a vinegary spray to wipe away stains.
