Getting Rid Of The Smell Of Smoke

There are lots of things that happen when a fire affects your home. You will have things that are damaged from direct contact with fire, but you will also have indirect damage such as soot, debris, and smoke damage.

Soot and debris are not as difficult to deal with because they are highly visible.

Smoke damage, on the other hand, can be very difficult to deal with. Getting rid of the smell of smoke will require washing/cleaning walls, carpet, bedding, clothing, furniture, and anything else that can be washed or cleaned. However, one often overlooked item is the duct work in your home. If your duct work isn't cleaned and deodorized, you will have a difficult time getting rid of the smoke smell.
