After a Fire

Getting rid of
Fire Smoke Smell
Black smoke from a fire infiltrates everything in its path. After a fire in your home, even if it’s just one room, you’ll find yourself smelling smoke for days. It seeps into carpeting, furniture, clothing, draperies, books, and even woodwork. If an attempt is made to remove the fire smoke smell by someone who is not a professional, a lot of the times the issue is only masked, and soon becomes worse with time. Houston Restore Pros will help dissipate and clean those smoke particles that have buried themselves into your furniture, walls, and other porous surfaces.
- Deodorizers and scented sprays will not remove the smell, they only mask.
- Smoke particles bury themselves into fabrics, fibers, and other porous surfaces.
- All items need to be deeply cleaned by professionals with expertise and specialized equipment.
Essentially, everything in a home affected by fire smoke needs to be cleaned. This will be either through a very thorough airing, or, in most cases, a very thorough cleaning and sanitation. If there is soot on your belongings, it’s best to let the pros handle them to prevent further damage. When working out how to clean and restore your damaged carpets and upholstery, trust the cleaning experts at Houston Restore Pros for the job. We’ll make sure the smoke smell and ash residue are completely removed from deep within the fibers and fabrics. Another tip that is recommended is to wash down all hard surfaces with a mild detergent and water.

Fire smoke smell and the HVAC SYSTEM
Fire smoke removal from a home or building requires a thorough inspection and cleaning of the HVAC system. Fire smoke embeds itself deep in your ventilation system even after afire has long been gone. All the filters will need to be changed, and the system should be inspected by a HVAC professional to ensure there has been no damage incurred during the fire.
