Going through fire damage can be very stressful. It can cause extensive damage throughout your house and property, which requires professional help to restore it back. In addition to repairing burnt items and soot-covered property by water, there is also the question of getting the smell of smoke out of your house. The smell of smoke and soot can easily linger after a fire and can cause unwanted health issues and discomfort to your family. Whether your house has suffered from smoke damage or has been affected by a wildfire, our experts will help you out. We will remove any kind of odor in the house quickly and very effectively.
Removing the odor from your house or property is very straightforward. However, the time needed to remove the odor depends on various factors, include:
There are two different kinds of soot, oily and dry. Dry soot is very easy to clean and can be done using a low-alkaline detergent and a sponge. On the other hand, oily soot requires special equipment and different techniques to remove it safely from your house. If you are unsure how to, then it is advised that you get help from a professional; this will ensure that your belongings and home aren’t damaged.
The amount of odor present in the house depends on the damaged area as well. If the area damaged is small, then the effort needed to get rid of the odor will be very less. Meanwhile, if the area is large such as a building with multiple rooms and property, removing odor will take time.
Fire size also plays an important role in the accumulation of odor. A small fire doesn’t cause much damage, whereas a large fire will. A large fire will make more smoke through your property and will require a full team to get rid of the smell.
Keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more smoke damage the fire will cause, which will eventually lead to more smoke odor throughout your business property. Even if the damage is minimal, most materials start to discolor, turn yellow, rusty, and corrode due to the effect of acidic soot and other smoke particles. It is important that you do not delay calling for help as soon as possible so that the odor doesn’t spread and reduce the need for care.
This is the factor that affects the odor the most. Materials that completely burn react differently to smoke and soot molecules. Porous material surfaces, which includes wallpaper, paint, drywall, and wood, can be discolored and permanently stained unless you treat them right away.
Moreover, metallic surfaces can corrode and get rusty due to the acidic soot released by the fire. Even cleaning your furniture will further damage it, and cleaning chemicals can get into your carpet, leaving permanent stains.
Fire smoke can get into every part of the house. It can seep into clothing, furniture, carpets, books, and even woodwork. Removing this smell from your house is a process better left for professionals and experts that have the set of skills needed to fix it. Our team uses specialized equipment and works in your house without causing further damage.
Fire odor is not the only pleasant smell you can come across. If you live with a smoker, then you must be familiar with the unpleasantness of cigarette odor, nicotine, and even cannabis. This kind of odor is very strong and can cause a severe headache, especially if you are not a smoker yourself.
