How Smoke & Soot Damage Affects Your Property
When soot combines with the atmosphere it becomes acidic. This acidic soot residue stains surfaces, corrodes metals and permanently embeds itself into fibers. When a fire burns in your home, it also sends smoke clouds and soot into your ventilation and duct systems.
Smoke damage cleanup & soot removal should never be handled on your own.
Soot particles are considered to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing), which means exposure to them can affect your health. Because of this, soot cleaning must be handled by a smoke damage restoration professional with the proper safety training and protective breathing equipment.
Our professionals will remove the smoke from your air duct systems to ensure a healthy air quality for your home or business. We’ll also immediately begin cleaning soot to prevent permanent staining. By doing this, we can save your possessions, reduce replacement costs, and protect your health.
My House Smells Like Smoke What Do I Do?
Nobody wants their house to smell like a campfire or an ashtray. The first thing to do after fire damage is to call a professional smoke remediation company. These fire smells are not only unpleasant, but they're dangerous for your health.
When fire burns in your house, it doesn't just burn the wood structure; It burns and releases the chemicals found in plastics, appliances, and electronics.
While you're waiting for fire smell removal experts to arrive, here are the steps you can take to get rid of the smoke odors in your house:
- Once it's declared safe to re-enter the premises, try to circulate the air as much as possible. This means turning on fans and opening windows and doors.
- Mop floors and vacuum carpets to remove smoke particles that might be trapped in the fibers.
- Clean brass, copper, and other metal fixtures to prevent them from tarnishing.
Can I Paint Over Smoke Damage?
Cleaning smoke off of walls isn't as easy as you think. Smoke particles can embed and impregnate themselves into the wall cavity, which sometimes means ripping out drywall in order to deodorize the cavity within.
So if you simply paint over walls without cleaning and deodorizing them properly, it will only be a temporary fix. Over time, the stains will seep through and that smoke smell will return once the fragrance of the paint evaporates.
If you do a quick google search, you'll see a lot of DIY bloggers telling you to use TSP. Yes, TSP cleans smoke off of walls, but it is a highly corrosive chemical cleaning agent. TSP can cause skin burns, eye damage, and respiratory problems, which is why cleaning is best left to the professionals.
Smoke cleaning professionals will have the proper protective equipment and will know how to apply TSP without staining other items in your home.
Smoke damage restoration professionals also have access to industrial-grade primers the will seal in fire smoke smell for years into the future. This kind of performance is impossible for average primers.
What Is Smoke Remediation?
Cleaning up after fire damage is easy, it's the getting rid of smoke damage part that's difficult. Smoke remediation is the process of reversing, or remedying, the damage that smoke has caused. Because smoke particles are so tiny, they're notorious for traveling everywhere and embedding themselves into anything.
Smoke particles build-up on furniture, cabinets, floors, carpets, and walls, and if not dealt with immediately, will cause discoloration and overpowering odors.
Smoke remediation has to address both the staining and the odors in order to be effective. Remediation requires cleaning nearly every surface of the building, including treating the areas behind the walls.
It also requires removing the particles in the air, and this can't be done properly with consumer-grade products.
Smoke remediation professionals have access to industrial-grade thermal foggers that mimic the odor particle and neutralizes it at a molecular level. This ensures the odor particle is completely destroyed and won't return down the line.
