All Restored, Inc. uses specialized equipment and adheres to industry standards to prevent and minimize smoke damage after the fire event. We clean all smoke and soot, even in places where it is not apparent and deodorize the surfaces and the items to eliminate the pervasive odors.

How Smoke Damage Occurs

Modern homes are packed with plastics, foams, carpets, synthetic fabrics, finished wood, asbestos-containing materials, etc. As they burn, chemicals are released into the air and gradually land on all the surfaces. Combining with these chemicals and humidity, smoke forms corrosive residues that cause etching pitting or chemical burning on surfaces.
Driven by heat, smoke travels to all places of your home, including areas behind the walls, light sockets, insulation, and HVAC systems. Metals, grass, plastics, and fabrics that suffer from the effect of smoke damage can see discoloring and gradually become destroyed. The deterioration state is evident in just a few hours after the fire has been put out. In a few weeks, the effects of smoke damage can already be irreversible.
Smoke causes substantial damage to health, not only the property. Smoke and soot may irritate your skin and eyes and you may unknowingly inhale or ingest its invisible airborne particles. Entering the bloodstream, soot causes serious health consequences, including respiratory issues, bronchitis, asthma, stroke, heart attack, and cancer. This is why it is forbidden to carry our smoke damage cleaning or even enter the building after the fire without proper protective equipment.
