Rebuilding your life after a fire partially or completely destroys your home is a long process. After several months of hard work, all the visually apparent damage is gone; however, one stubborn reminder of the accident lingers on, affecting your family’s health and comfort. You may notice a strong, musty odor emanating from your furniture, curtains, and even the walls inside your house.
Most people know that smoke smells bad, especially the kind of smoke released when a fire burns particular substances and materials. The smells of burning plastic, fabric, and paint are potent — no one wants to breathe in these stubborn odors. Smoke consists of many small particles of wood tar, harmful gases, and sometimes even heavy metals. These contaminants end up not only in your walls, ceilings, and floors, but in your furniture, as well. Our professionally trained smoke damage clean up technicians will seek out and get rid of the musty smell smoke leaves behind.
Soot is residue left behind by smoke, and it can appear anywhere in your home after a fire occurs. From ceilings and walls to carpets and other kinds of flooring, soot can affect many permanent fixtures in your home.
Most home owners don’t possess the equipment or experience needed to safely and thoroughly remove signs of soot damage from their homes. However, you don’t have to live with the ugly reminders of a fire. Because soot is so persistent, investing professional services is well worth your time. Don’t waste your energy on generic solutions that don’t work. Our team uses the latest restoration techniques to remove the unattractive stains caused by soot, once and for all.
Fires almost always cause serious damage to homes—however, so does the water used to extinguish them. Water damage inadvertently caused by firefighters trying to save your residence can soak into your walls, roof, and flooring; eventually, mildew might begin to grow, and your home’s structure could also be compromised. If a fire was recently extinguished in your home, it’s well worth your time to have our fire damage restoration specialists look into any water damage that may be present, as well.
Most fire damage is visually apparent. However, many fires also leave behind the telltale odors of soot, which can cause allergic reactions and other breathing issues in your loved ones. Soot and smoke damage are real issues that affect many local families after surviving a fire. Breathing in fine smoke particles is hazardous to your health, and deodorization is almost always necessary.
Invest in the assistance of professionals that understand the importance of clean walls, ceilings, floors, and air. For help with fire damage that isn’t visible to the naked eye, local families turn to our professional smoke removal team. As members of the Indoor Air Quality Association, our team understands the importance of maintaining clean air in your home.
Pro Services knows that during a fire, smoke can permeate walls and other surfaces and drift through household air ducts, where it becomes trapped. If not professionally removed, smoke odor can reoccur. Soot is oily and easily stains carpets, draperies and other household textiles. For this reason, you must remove it before you attempt to clean or deodorize items.
Even after cleaning, smoke odor may remain in clothing, upholstered furniture, carpets and draperies unless they are properly deodorized before cleaning. Fire, smoke, and soot can cause corrosive etching within 72 hours. Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures should be promptly cleaned. Pro Services is here to help you take care of these jobs properly.
