Smoke Odor Removal Most people easily detect the odor of smoke when they walk into a building that’s experienced a fire. That telltale odor lingers and makes its way into walls, carpets, drapes, furniture, and more. Some people are even sickened by the smell and unable to tolerate it. No matter how small the small fire or how quickly it was extinguished, the smoke it gives out can permeate the entire environment. When your home or business has experienced a fire, you want to restore it to its pre-fire damage condition as quickly as possible. But once the fire company has left, you may be overwhelmed with the aftereffects of the fire. GET RESTORATION EXPERTS can help.

Maybe you’ve tried to rid your home of the smoke odor yourself, but were unsuccessful.

Without the help of a professional, cleaning these smoke deposits and eliminating the odor can be tedious, laborious, and virtually futile. Steps in the Smoke Odor Removal Process GET RESTORATION EXPERTS takes care throughout the entire process. We treat your belongings and property as if they were our own. After our initial analysis to determine the full extent of the smoke damage, we take any or all of the following steps as necessary. We work with you to identify and inventory all smoke-damaged items that will be removed from your home or business to our facility for thorough cleaning and restoration. (You might even want to remove non-damaged items during the smoke-odor removal process to eliminate the potential for them to absorb smoke particles.) We remove and properly dispose of those items that are beyond repair. This includes items damaged in the fire. Using advanced technologies, and specialized equipment and cleaning products, we thoroughly clean the entire affected area. We scrub and clean all surfaces: floors, walls, ceilings, woodwork, windows and mirrors, ceiling fans and light fixtures, etc. We don’t ignore air vents and the HVAC system. Our process cleans these out, which ensures smoke articles that landed inside this system will not be blown out into the room at a future time. Because smoke and smoke particles get everywhere, we also clean outside, including siding, decks, driveways, windows, and more. Close off the area inside the property to treat it using a safe defogger to neutralize the smoke odor and other approved techniques to completely eliminate the odor from the air. Once we confirm the area has been decontaminated of all smoke odor, we sanitize and deodorize so you can be certain you will be returning to a safe, clean environment. If any structural component must be repaired or replaced, we coordinate all repair and renovation work with you, including appliance removal or furniture removal and complete the work to your specifications.
