Cleaning Smoke Damage
Store-bought products and rented equipment don’t cut it when smoke damage has settled in to carpets, drapes, and upholstery, blackening the surfaces. Half-measures can damage property further, possibly requiring replacement.
Common mistakes made by amateurs cleaning smoke damage include excessive shampoo, wetting the carpet or upholstery too much, and not protecting carpeting from furniture.
DAI professionals have trained with the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) on cleaning smoke damage. DAI’s staff knows how to do the job, have the right tools, and can deliver the best results.
- Smoke damage restoration starts with a powerful vacuum to remove soot from carpet, upholstery, and drapes. Soot needs to be removed as quickly as possible so it does not become a magnet for additional soils.
- Smoke damage cleaning equipment may include wet cleaning tools, rotary scrubbers, and extractors that inject steam into materials.
- Foam blocks and protective squares are used to keep carpet separated from furniture until it is dry.
