DON’T TRY TO DO IT YOURSELF! | Fire Smoke Cleaning

If it is not taken care of, the residue left behind is a biohazard and health risk. You do not want to attempt to clean up your home on your own because you may cause more damage. Only experts with the right training and tools can ensure that the job is done right.

Quick Tips for When You’re in the Middle of a Loss

  • If the temperature exceeds 20°C degrees, you must air out the house to reduce the smoke odour.
  • Clean laminate surfaces like chrome, porcelain, and aluminium fixtures. Of course, to prevent permanent etching.
  • Change the air filter on your furnace if it uses forced hot air.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns and supply registers to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Of course, discard any open food packages.
  • If the electricity is off, clean out the refrigerator and leave doors propped open.
  • Besides, it sends clothing with massive smoke damage to a qualified restoration dry cleaner.

What’s Not To Do in Fire Smoke Cleaning

  • Please do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing more damage.
  • Don’t wash the walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
  • Never attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Also, never use electrical appliances unless they have been checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
