Removing Smoke Damage and Odor

Restoring a business after a fire doesn't just involve repairing structural damage and replacing lost items. The lingering effects of smoke odor and smoke-related damage can be an additional, unwelcome hindrance to getting your business up and running. While an inexperienced individual can successfully remove evidence of smoke from a building, contacting a professional smoke cleaning service is always advisable. Specialists are experienced in addressing individual problems that might arise and will know how to avoid further damage to your property.

1. Assessing the Damage
Because smoke interacts chemically with many substances, it is essential that you act as quickly as possible to remove smoke residue from all affected surfaces. Inevitably, some items will be beyond repair, so identifying and removing these will significantly speed up the restoration process. Certain complex objects, such as air conditioning units can be restored, but require deep cleaning that may take time and know-how to disassemble.

2. Removing Physical Residues
Manually removing smoke residues is a necessary step for removing smoke odor from surfaces or items. It is important that you understand which smoke cleaning method should be used for which surfaces. Upholstery fabrics, for example, are likely to suffer damage from wet cleaning. Porous materials, on the other hand, are most easily cleared with a wet sponge.

3. Using Proven Chemical Cleaning Methods
Ozone cleaning and thermal fogging are two of the most effective methods of removing smoke odor. When used together, these usually eliminate all evidence of smoke damage from clean interiors. A complete exposure of all rooms will ensure that the job does not need to be repeated in the future.
