Smoke Damage Cleaning
You might spend more time and money trying to clean the smoke odor and soot without any results. This can happen because you aren’t focusing on the right areas and don’t have the correct technology to deodorize a structure.
Smoke Damage Cleaning Techniques
- Hand Cleaning – not every process can be automized, mainly depending on the type of contents that needs to be cleaned in your home. Furniture, books, pictures, large items and the structure of the building typically have to be washed by hand removing the smoke and soot.
- Thermal Fogger – when you have an odor in your home, a thermal fogger can be a great asset to completely engulf an area getting the fogging solution in every nook and crevice. Thermal fogging is an effective smoke odor removal procedure because it recreates the fire-related properties of heat and pressurization. Porous material picks up thermally activated deodorant droplets in the same manner in which they picked up the smoke odors, closely duplicating what occurs during a fire.
- Hydroxyl Machines – mother nature uses hydroxyl molecules to clean and scrub the environment. Hydroxyls are produced with the decomposition of hydroperoxide. With a unique piece of technology, we can use these Hydroxyl machines to recreate them to fight and combat odor. Hydroxyls actually neutralize odor molecules and gasses by breaking down their chemical bonds once attached.

Smoke Damage F.A.Q.
Should I call my insurance first?
No, not necessarily. What a lot of homeowners don’t realize is that when you call your insurance company regarding a loss, that call goes into your Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (C.L.U.E.) report. It contains a seven-year snapshot of info about you, including a list of any claims you’ve made. This phone call could impact your premiums going forward. Before you call your insurance company, call a restoration professional to get an accurate quote, if the quote is above your deductible, call your insurance to file a claim.
