Fire Damage How to Get Rid of Smoke Damage and Smell After a minor fire, often the worst damage is not done by the fire itself but by the smoke and soot

Smoke damage can wreak havoc in your home. Kitchen flare-ups, closed fireplace flues, and electrical fires can send smoke throughout your house, charring walls, covering everything, and stinking up the place. The longer you let smoke and odors linger, the more they soak into walls, carpets, and furniture.  Smoke damage becomes harder to repair over time. Get rid of odors quickly to avoid a persistent problem.  

Call the professionals let us begin!!!!!

If you’ve had extensive smoke damage, professionals can help you clean up and get rid of smoke odor. 

Once the fire’s out or the flue is open, ventilate the house as quickly as possible to mitigate smoke damage.

Ozone treatments use an ozone generator to send an electrical current through the oxygen, which attacks the smoky odor.
