A structural fire is any fire that occurs to a home or business. A typical fire will have burned hazardous chemicals from plastics, synthetic fabrics, paint, household cleaning items, vehicles, electronics/batteries. In some homes or structures, especially older builds, fires will expose asbestos and other toxic elements that are harmful to human health.

Even parts of your property that weren’t charred or directly burned by fire will still have smoke and heat damage.

How can smoke odor be removed?

Removing smoke odor will require a full suite of tools and processes. In severe fires, it will start with clearance by a structural engineer.

Once any visible fire damage is safely removed and engineered controls are set in the structure, the process of removing odor can begin.

Removing smoke odor will require contents cleaning, so all salvageable items in the home will need to be documented, packed out, cleaned, and then packed for return. A professional fogging solution will be applied to neutralize harmful contaminants and toxins present in the air and surfaces of a structure. After that, professional air filtering equipment will start cleaning the air quality to a safe standard for occupants.

Answers to common questions about smoke damage restoration

Can you clean up smoke damage?

Soot is a black or brown carbon residue made when hydrocarbons are burned too slowly. Soot can be removed from most surfaces with a combination of detergent and water. The surface should be wetted down with the detergent and allowed to sit for 10-15 minutes before being rinsed off. You may also use rubbing alcohol or vinegar. Large scale fires will require more planning and specialty chemicals to properly clean.

How long does it take to clean up smoke damage from a house?

Smoke damage can vary depending on the type of smoke and the materials it comes into contact with.

If you’re dealing with smoke damage, taking action as soon as possible is important. The longer you wait, the more difficult and expensive it will be to clean up the mess.

Odors can be fixed with vinegar or baking soda. For example, cracks in walls or ceilings may require more intensive cleaning or repairs.

But if the residue is worse or has soaked into the wall, you may need a professional cleaner.
