Professional Smoke Damage Repairs
The most important thing to remember when dealing with smoke damage is to never attempt repairs without a professional. Smoke damage must be professionally and fully repaired so it will not cause ongoing problems. Our specialists will remove everything affected by the fire. We’ll evaluate the items that can be restored and those that are unsalvageable.
How To Get Rid Of The Smoke Smell
Removing smoke odor from items depends on the type of damaged material. Porous materials often have much more damage than other types of materials, including:
- Finished Wood –The good news is that finished wood has a protected layer, so it can be stripped, sanded, and refinished to bring it back to optimal shape.
- Unfinished Wood –Unfinished wood is more challenging than finished wood, but we can often apply a sealant to trap the odor.
- Carpets –The fibers of carpet hold smell, so they must be thoroughly cleaned or replaced.
- Walls and Ceilings –Fire often causes discoloration on walls and ceilings, so it’s best to scrape and sand them until all of the material is removed.
- Furniture –Fabric furniture soaks in odors and will often require professional cleaning or a replacement.
Environmentally Friendly Soot Removal Process
DKI uses an environmentally-friendly soot removal process. As the first disaster restoration and reconstruction company to be Green Risk certified in building reconstruction and restoration services, we believe it’s important to use green techniques. Soot Removal Film doesn’t release contaminants into the air, releases only a small amount of water for cleaning, and requires minimal containment. The film is sprayed on the wall, peeled away, and disposed of safely.
