Greater Boston, MA – Cleaning Tips to Remove Smoke Odor After a Fire Accident

Smoke

Have you recently experienced a fire on your property and want to get rid of the smoke odor? Here is what you need to do.

A fire accident is the worst thing that can happen to your property. Not only does it ruin your property and valuable belongings, but it also paves the way for a number of problems like water damage. Regardless of how small and contained a fire is, the byproducts it leaves behind jeopardize the health of the people in the vicinity.

Furthermore, fire leaves behind a pungent and nauseating odor. The odor continues to stay inside your home, while affecting the quality of indoor air. In the following paragraphs, we will share with you some tips that will help you get rid of that disgusting smoke odor, so keep reading. Before we move forward, if you still haven’t taken a moment to check out our website, do so now. We provide some of the best restoration services in Greater Boston MA.Air Fan

Air Out the Place

The first thing you should do to remove the smoke odor from your property is to air out the place. To begin with, open all the doors and windows for proper ventilation. This will allow fresh air to enter, thus helping to neutralize the unbearable odor of smoke. It may help to strategically place fans to push the smoke out of your living space. You can also invest in renting exhaust fans from a local home store to speed up the process.

Use Some Positive Pressure

Airing out the place is good, but it won’t suffice unless you rely on some positive pressure. If you are new to this concept, do not worry. Positive pressure is when the pressure of air inside a room is greater than the pressure of air outside the room. Here is what you need to do to create positive pressure:

  • Open the main entrance to your living space and place a big fan facing inwards.
  • Close all the doors and windows,except one window which will serve as the exhaust.
  • Turn the fan on and run it on the highest speed for 15 minutes straight.
  • Repeat the process a few times until the odor has completely left.

Clean Thoroughly

The smoke stricken surfaces should be cleaned thoroughly to get rid of the pungent odor. Make sure the carpets, curtains and bedding are professionally cleaned. Items in your home will need to be cleaned as well.  Also, clean the windows and all surfaces like ceilings, walls and floors. Lastly, the HVAC ducts should be thoroughly cleaned by a professional.

Repaint the Walls

As discussed in the previous paragraphs, the walls need to be washed to get rid of smoke odor. After the walls have been washed, they may need to be repainted. Please do not just repaint the walls without cleaning first.  Smoke and soot odor will eventually seep through the paint, and you will be back at square one.

Hire the Professionals – Service Team of Professionals

Cleaning and deodorizing after a fire, no matter how small can be a tedious task.  If it’s small, like popcorn burning in the microwave, and you can’t get rid of the smell, try cleaning the surfaces nearest the microwave like appliances, walls, outside of the cabinets.  Definitely clean the inside of the microwave until you can’t smell anything burnt.  If the area is large and/or you have a lot of items in your home, call fire damage and odor control specialists like Service Team of Professionals (STOP).  STOP, based in Framingham MA, has the right equipment, right products, and training to perform the damage restoration services the right way the first time.
