Smoke Clean Up

Smoke Damage

Smoke damage is stressful and frustrating to handle. Smoke leaves staining residues and lingering toxic smell that penetrates everywhere. The complexity of property loss or destruction due to fire smoke damage is due to the unique behavior of smoke:

  • Dry smoke will impregnate porous surfaces.
  • Wet smoke (low temperature fires) leaves a thick residue.
  • Oil smoke stains and sticks to surfaces.

First Measures

Provided the fire was not responsible for extensive or structural damage, you can do a few things until Marcco Flood Restoration crew arrives for smoke damage remediation.

  • Open doors and windows.
  • Turn off HVAC so smoke doesn’t travel through the vents.
  • Turn on ceiling fans (and portable fans if you have them).
