How Can I Clean Up Fire Damage?

Fire can be extremely damaging to a house. However, many people disregard the other detrimental elements of a fire.

You Can Repair Fire Damage

Your home can undergo serious smoke or soot damage without a major fire breaking out. Smaller kitchen fires 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 will soak into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here are a few ways to quickly cleanup any smoke damage:

  • To stop smoke from spreading, shut off your air conditioning.
  • To fan out smokey air, position large fans towards open windows and doors.
  • Vacuum up ash and soot by holding the nozzle right above the soot- pressing down could create stains.
  • Use a rag to clean countertops and furniture.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from ceilings and walls. Meanwhile, use a vinegary spray to get rid of stains.
  • Clean any household item that has been affected, including light bulbs.
  • Deep wash or dry clean any clothing or curtains that were affected.
  • Use odor counteractants to deodorize carpets and window coverings.
