Smoke Restoration & Cleaning Tips: Large fires burn so hot and out of control that they consume almost everything in their path. However, with smaller fires, what they take away is not so much the issue as what they leave behind Smoke and the poisonous fumes from burnt synthetic materials become the major players. Smoke permeates everything it comes into contact with. Here are a few tips when dealing with smoke damage-

•    First of all, depending on the extent of the damage, make sure a professional gives you the okay to enter the building.

•    After your home has been deemed safe to enter, make sure to bring protective clothing, masks, as well as gloves. This extra precaution may seem unnecessary but depending on the situation, such as: poisonous gas build-up or embers which are still hot, which you overlook; can be crucial. It is best to be prepared.

•    Next, make sure to open windows and doors to allow as much ventilation as possible. This will remove the stagnant air and remove fumes that remained.

•    Once you have made sure the building is safe and cleared out the fumes, it’s time to assess the damage. Pictures should be taken all areas affected by the fire, smoke, and soot. This will help with the insurance claim. Also you will need to determine whether or not you wish to hire a professional restoration service provider or go at it on your own.

•    If you choose to tackle the problem on your own, there are products available on the market to remove smoke smell and residue, just be sure to read the directions and warnings carefully. (As a rule of thumb, always wear gloves when using any form of cleaning products).

•    The filters used in air conditioning and heating systems would more than likely be filled with soot and smoke residues. The filters should be changed and the ventilation shaft should be cleaned as much as possible before using.
