Often times, smoke damage from a fire causes just as much damage as the blaze itself.

The Smoke Damage Cleaning Process
If your home or business has been affected by a fire related disaster, make sure to call Restoration 1 immediately. Upon receiving your call, we will send out one of our fire damage restoration specialists to review the damage.
In addition to the likely fire and water damage, there will undoubtedly be some level smoke damage, and our technician will be able to identify the extent of this damage and formulate a restoration and cleanup plan to return your home or business to its pre-disaster condition.
To the untrained eye, smoke damage appears to be only superficial. However, smoke damage penetrates your walls, flooring, carpets, and essentially every exposed surface within the fire affected area. Restoration 1 utilizes professional equipment and advanced cleaning techniques to remove all the lingering soot and smoke damage. Our smoke damage cleaning services are unmatched by competitors.
Beyond simply cleaning the soot and smoke residue from your home or business, the smell of smoke will linger and is far more difficult to remove. This odor can be obnoxious, and in severe cases can render your home or business uninhabitable. Certain materials, like carpet, furniture, ceilings, and duct work, will require professional deodorization.
The final phase in the smoke damage restoration process involves repairing and replacing the highly damaged materials. As a licensed general contractor, Restoration 1 is able to complete all of the repairs necessary to return your property to its pre disaster condition.
The Importance of Immediate Smoke Damage Cleaning
Soot residue proves to be dangerous due to its origins — the burning of synthetic materials used in modern furniture, flooring and fabrics. As these chemicals, corrosive gases, and acids sit, the damage increases exponentially. This is the reason that a quick response to smoke damage is necessary. Left untreated, the following are all possibilities:
- In a few minutes after a fire, plastics take on irreversible damage;
- In a few hours, furniture and grout darken, metals tarnish, and fiberglass turns yellow;
- In a few days, smoke damage to clothing, upholstery, furniture, and paint is irreversible. Metals will pit and rust. Vinyl floors will need replacement or refinishing; wooden floors will need sanding and refinishing.
- Weeks after the fire, smoke damage will be irreversible for most of the surfaces and items in a property including synthetic materials, silver, crystal, and glass.
