Smoke Damage Restoration is a Job For Professionals

When a home or other building has been exposed to smoke, the smoke permeates every surface in the building. From upholstered furniture to dry wall, smoke will leave an odor everywhere. Smoke will find its way into spaces between walls, into attics and under counters. In addition to smoke odor being widespread, it is also difficult to clean. Unlike many other sources of odors, smoke cannot simply be wiped away by a surface cleaning. Smoke particles need to be removed when possible and neutralized by special cleaners when they cannot be totally removed. Smoke odor is not only unpleasant; it can even cause numerous health problems, especially to the very young, the elderly and those with respiratory issues. If a building has smoke damage, it is important the odor be removed. 

The difficulty of removing the odor from smoke damage is the primary reason that building owners should hire a professional remediation company, like SERVPRO, to deal with the smoke damage left behind by a fire. SERVPRO will know where to find the sources of smoke odors, the proper cleaning materials to use and the proper way to clean the building to remove the odors. When hiring a remediation company, it is important that the company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration. The IICRC certification is the industry standard in the remediation business and provides building owners with the assurance that the remediation company has the knowledge and training needed to clean up the damage and to eliminate the odors. In addition to choosing a professional remediation company, remediation professionals will be able to make certain that the building is safe and will be able to get the job done quickly to help a building owner to be able to use the building as quickly as possible.
