How Can I Repair Smoke Damage?

Smoke damage can occur without a major fire breaking out in your building. If you don't act quickly, smaller kitchen flare ups and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and strong odors. Unless you address the problem immediately, smoke odor will soak into the walls, carpets and furniture. Here's how you can move fast and cleanup any smoke damage:
  • To stop smoke from spreading, turn off your AC.
  • Put large fans by open doors and windows to fan out the smoke.
  • When vacuuming soot and ash, hold the nozzle right above the soot to suck it up. Pressing down on the soot could cause stains.
  • Clean hard surfaces.
  • Wipe away soot from ceilings and walls with a dry sponge. Meanwhile, use a vinegary spray to wipe away stains.
  • Clean every item in your house that has been affected, such as light bulbs.
  • Deep wash or dry clean any curtains or clothing that were affected.
  • Use odor counteractants to deodorize carpets and window coverings.
