A common assumption about house fires is that the fire itself causes most of the damage and that the damage is done spreading once the fire is out. However, there are several other elements that can cause serious damage during and after a fire. The smoke from a fire creates soot and residue that can permanently damage many household surfaces and items while also leaving behind an unpleasant odor. ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration provides smoke damage and odor mitigation services in The Pinery and Castle Pines, CO to cleanup soot and smoke residue and eliminate smoke odor. We can effectively cleanup damaged materials with powerful cleaning products and we use advanced technology to extract smoke odors.
It is important to remember that you can experience smoke damage in your home without a fire. Cooking, candles, electrical shorts, and fireplace fires may create enough smoke to cause damage from soot or residue. Smoke residue is an oily residue that forms when synthetic materials are burned, and it can have a damaging effect on surfaces like wood, drywall, and furniture. This residue, along with soot, will keep spreading and settling throughout a home after the fire and cause tarnishing and etching to various surfaces. Our powerful chemical cleaners can effectively reverse the effects of smoke residue and soot before the materials become permanently damaged.
In addition to the damage from soot and residue, smoke can cause foul odors to spread and linger in your home. These odors are very difficult to get rid of because they get absorbed in fabrics and porous building materials. Smoke odor can only be removed effectively with the right equipment that will remove it at its source. At ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration, we can remove smoke odors using state-of-the-art methods and technology including hydroxyl technology, ozone technology, and Nano carbon technology.
