The Smoke Damage Removal Process

Our team at Warren Restoration goes through a comprehensive checklist to take care of smoke damage. Nothing is overlooked in our efforts to restore your home to its original condition. Our process requires that we determine the:

Scale of the
Damage

This determines how much smoke damage repair you’ll need, as well as the best smoke remediation plan for your situation. While smoke damage from smaller fires is easier to manage than those from larger fires, the damage can still be pervasive.

Time of
Exposure

An important piece of information to the smoke remediation process is how long things have been exposed to smoke and its residue. The less time your possessions are exposed, the less likely they’ll be deemed a total loss.

Size of the
Removal Area

Smaller homes and rooms may have a stronger smoke smell because the odor is more concentrated than it would be in a larger space. The smoke damage cleaning process can be easier when the smoke is spread throughout a larger area.

Saving What You Can

When it comes to preserving your belongings after a fire, it’s important to be aware that not everything will always be salvageable. Here at Warren Restoration, we do the best we can to save as many of your possessions as we can. Here are a few notes about restoring certain areas of the home that you should be aware of:

While it might seem that your clothes only need to be washed, there are chemicals left behind by smoke that require a special chemical solution to remove.

When cleaning wooden furniture after a fire, special care has to be taken to keep things in the best condition possible. Dyes and other chemicals from the fire-damaged furniture can stain your carpet. During the smoke damage cleaning and repair process, separate your furniture and carpet until they’re totally clean and dry.

While sealed food might look okay, any that was close to the heat of the fire should be thrown out immediately. The intense heat can activate bacteria in the food that spoils it or gives it an unpleasant taste.

You may need to replace other belongings like curtains, hardwood flooring, and plastics during your smoke restoration. If you have any questions about what might be salvageable, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
