The aftermath of a fire in your commercial building can be as stressful and damaging as the fire itself. Soot can cover virtually every inch of your business. Smoke can permeate your walls, surfaces, and air ducts, leaving unseen odors everywhere.

How smoke can damage your business:
- In just a few minutes, smoke can discolor the walls.
- Within a few hours, finishes on electronics and appliances can yellow.
- Smoke causes etching in glass after just a short period, and smoke will tarnish metal quickly, causing machinery to rust.
- Ash and smoke can contribute to damage and corrosion of materials left behind.
Our commercial smoke damage restoration experts are backed by over 65 years of experience and work in an efficient manner that never compromises quality. It’s our priority to get every inch of your property restored as quickly as possible so that you and your employees can get back to normal.
Our Commercial Smoke & Odor Removal Process
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to ridding your business of smoke and soot. Our expert team has helped countless business owners restore their properties. We will first assess your property and possessions and then devise a suitable plan to move forward with your restoration.
To ensure superior smoke, odor, and soot removal, we:
- Clean the ash residue that builds up on surfaces before it continues to spread
- Neutralize the odors to keep them from returning
- Remove the troubling reminders of soot, odor, and stains from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile, porcelain, as well as fabrics, upholstery, and carpets
- Deodorize the carpets and soft goods before they’re cleaned
How to reduce smoke and soot after a fire:
- If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out the facility to reduce smoke odor.
- If it uses forced hot air, change the air filter on the furnace.
- Do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oils from hands can permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing additional damage.
- Do not wash the walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
When a fire impacts your place of business, burned equipment and charred possessions are just the damages you can see on the surface. Even after the flames have been put out and the smoke has cleared, your business is still in trouble. Since smoke and soot are highly acidic, they can damage a wide range of materials they come in contact with.
This amount of smoke damage can easily overwhelm any business owner. That's why it's important to call in a professional that offers soot cleaning and smoke odor removal services to restore your building to a clean, healthy, and safe condition for yourself and your employees.
