The smoke odors left behind after a fire can be toxic. Without proper removal of smoke odors, homeowners will not be able to return to living in their house. At PuroClean, we use state-of-the-art cleaning methods to remove the smoke odors from your home. We work with fires of all sizes, whether it has affected the entire house or just one room. Smoke can be tricky because it can sneak into the smallest crevices of the home and can cause lingering odors. Smoke particles are microscopic, so it’s easy for them to penetrate a variety of materials in the home.
Smoke odors are harmful to the health of homeowners, so it is crucial that the odors are completely removed. At PuroClean, we have years of experience restoring homes after fire damage has occurred and removing smoke odors. We are on call 24/7 and can be at your house within 60 minutes of your call. As soon as the fire is out and everyone is safe, give us a call. With smoke and fire damage, the sooner the restoration process begins, the less likely your home is to have permanent and long-term damage.
Salvaging vs. Disposable
The first step of the smoke odor removal process is to determine what is salvageable and what needs to be removed and disposed of. For example, it could be that we are able to salvage and clean the carpets in the home, but the curtains are damaged beyond repair and need to be disposed of and replaced. We know how hard it is to dispose of items in your house. Our goal at PuroClean is to remove the smoke odor from and salvage as many items in your home as possible.
We also provide pack-out services. This is where we take salvageable items out of your home, like couches, bedding, clothing, curtains, etc., and bring them off-site to clean. This is important for a couple of reasons. First, it creates more space for us to complete our restoration work. Second, it allows us to clean the items without running the risk of them reabsorbing smoke odors. Once the property is fully restored, we will bring the items back.
The Cleaning Process
Once we know which items we will be able to salvage, the cleaning process begins. We use top-of-the-line cleaning agents to remove smoke damage throughout the home. We are careful to remove odors from top to bottom, as we know that smoke likes to hide in tiny cracks and crevices. We clean everything from carpets to appliances to make sure that no residual odors are left behind. In addition, we will clean the air ducts in the HVAC system to prevent residual soot and smoke from continuing to spread throughout the home. One area where smoke loves to seep into is soft items like bedding, curtains, and clothes. We do our best to professionally clean these items in a way that removes the smoke so that these items are salvageable.
