Repairing Fire Damage

Your house can receive serious soot damage without a major fire. If you don’t start cleaning immediately, small-scale kitchen fires and closed fireplace flues can cause discoloration and strong odors.

  • Shut off your AC to stop spreading smoke.
  • To suck out smoke, put large fans by open doors and windows.
  • Vacuum up soot and ash by holding the nozzle right above the soot. Pressing down could create stains.
  • Clean hard surfaces with a cloth.
  • Use a dry sponge to wipe away soot from walls and ceilings. Meanwhile, get rid of stains with a vinegar spray.
