Will my home ever stop smelling of smoke?
The soot is easier to clean because it is visible to our cleaning technicians. Smoke smell, however, is much harder to clean. This home had a fire in the kitchen but the entire house smelled like smoke. Removing that smell starts with first cleaning all the walls and carpets. Any clothing, bedding, and anything washable will be cleaned and removed from the home until the smell is gone.
One important, and often overlooked, step is that of cleaning the air ducts and filters. A deodorizer is also added to the ducting to help with any troubled stops inside the home.
All these cleaning techniques together is how SERVPRO of Montclair/ West Orange will have your home clean and smelling great after a fire.
