A house fire can be a frightening, traumatic experience, and dealing with damage to your home after a fire can be difficult and expensive. Understandably, you want to get your home back to the way it was before the fire so you can return to your normal life with your family and enjoy your home again. That’s why disaster restoration services are so important. While cleaning up the soot and restoring damaged surfaces like cabinets and flooring are essential parts of the process, one thing that should not be overlooked is smoke odor removal.
Naturally, your home will probably smell like smoke after a fire because the tiny smoke particles stick to surfaces like windows and walls as well as porous materials like carpets, upholstery, and curtains. Smoke odor removal is important not only because it is distracting and unpleasant, but also because it can affect your health. While inhaling a smoke odor after a fire won’t have consequences as severe as inhaling smoke itself, you should avoid it as much as possible for your respiratory system’s sake since the odor is residual smoke.
When a professional does your smoke odor removal, it will involve deep cleaning to eliminate the odor rather than cover it up. It will likely take a long time to complete since wiping down every surface and corner is not an easy job, but with their specialized products and equipment, you can trust that they will neutralize the smell effectively.
