It’s important to remember that when the fire is put out, your home doesn’t become habitable immediately after. Let’s learn about this in further detail below!

After a fire outbreak, smoke particles get attached to various surfaces in the affected area, such as walls, furniture, and porous surfaces. Smoke penetrates into carpets, couches, and sometimes even paint. The smoke also brings hazardous odors with itself. It’s not easy to rid of these odors with regular cleaning practices. If not taken care, the smoke odors can stay inside your home for an extended period and pollute the quality of your indoor air.
