Smoke, Soot, and Ash Removal & Cleanup
Can smoke damage be removed?
The answer to this question depends on the extent of the damage.
If the smoke damage is superficial, then it is possible to remove and clean it up.
However, if the damage is more severe, then it may be necessary to replace affected materials.
Smoke removal services like ours can help to remove and clean up smoke damage.
Professionals will typically use specialized equipment and cleaning products to remove the smoke and soot from surfaces.
In some cases, they may also need to replace materials that have been severely damaged by smoke.
Can you paint over smoke damage?
The short answer is yes, you can paint over smoke damage.
But there are a few things you need to do first in order to ensure that the paint will stick and that the smoke smell won’t come back.
First, you’ll need to wash the walls with a trisodium phosphate solution to remove any soot or residue.
Once the walls are dry, you can then apply a primer specifically designed for smoke-damaged surfaces.
Once the primer is dry, you can finally paint your walls with the color of your choice.
It’s important to note that simply painting over smoke damage won’t completely get rid of the smell. In order to do that, you’ll need to find and eliminate the source of the smell.
This could mean replacing charred insulation or cleaning soot from vents.
Only then will the smoke smell be gone for good.
What can be salvaged after smoke damage?
What can be salvaged in your home after fire and smoke damage depends on the extent of the damage and the type of materials that were affected.
In some cases, only minor cleaning may be necessary to salvage items, while in others, replacement may be the only option.
Some things that can often be salvaged after smoke damage include:
- Clothing: If clothing has only been exposed to light smoke, it can often be salvaged with a thorough cleaning. Heavily damaged clothing may need to be discarded.
- Upholstered furniture: Upholstered furniture that has only been exposed to light smoke can often be cleaned and saved. More heavily damaged pieces may need to be reupholstered.
- Wood furniture: Wood furniture that has been exposed to smoke can often be cleaned and salvaged. More heavily damaged pieces may need to be refinished or replaced.
- Dishes and glassware: Dishes and glassware that have been exposed to smoke can often be cleaned and saved. More heavily damaged items may need to be replaced.
- Metal items: Metal items that have been exposed to smoke can often be cleaned and saved. More heavily damaged items may need to be replaced.
- Carpets and rugs: Carpets and rugs that have been exposed to smoke can often be cleaned and saved. More heavily damaged items may need to be replaced.
Is there a machine that gets rid of smoke smell?
Yes, there are machines that can remove smoke smell from homes and businesses.
These machines are called ozone generators and they work by creating ozone molecules which attach to and break down smoke particles.
Ozone generators are effective at removing smoke smell, but they must be used properly in order to be safe.
Important: improper use of ozone generators can create harmful levels of ozone, which can be dangerous to human health.
Your best bet is to hire professional smoke damage restoration professionals (like us) to setup and use ozone generators properly.
How do professionals clean smoke, soot, and ash damage?
The first step is to remove all soot from the affected surfaces.
This can be done with a variety of methods, including vacuuming, dry-cleaning or wiping with a damp cloth.
Next, professionals will use a cleaner specifically designed to break down smoke particles. This step is important, as regular cleaners will not be effective.
Once the smoke cleaner has been applied, all surfaces should be rinsed with clean water. This will help to remove any residual cleaner and smoke particles.
Finally, any affected areas will need to be ventilated to allow fresh air to circulate. This can be done by opening windows and doors or using fans.
Smoke damage can be a difficult and time-consuming process to clean. However, by hiring professionals like us, you can be sure that the job will be done correctly.
How much does it cost to remove the smell of smoke from a house?
The cost of removing the smell of smoke from a house depends on the size of the house, the type of smoke, and the severity of the damage, and your homeowner’s insurance policy.
In most cases, your homeowner’s insurance policy will cover the costs of fire and smoke damage restoration after you’ve paid your policy deductible amount.
