Fire is among the most destructive and dangerous things that can happen to your home. It can destroy your belongings and the structural components of your house. Even after it has been put down, you still need to address potential harm to your family, such as the odor.
Here are tips on how to remove smoke odors after a house fire from a local fire and flood damage expert.
Open Your Doors and Windows
The first thing you need to do to remove smoke odor from your indoor spaces is to air it out. Opening windows and doors will improve the ventilation of the affected rooms and allow fresh outdoor air to enter. Using fans throughout your home can also help in pushing the smoke odor outdoors. You can try to place the fans facing windows, doorways and corners of rooms.
Clean Your Home
Cleaning all surfaces and things affected by smoke damage is an effective way to remove smoke odors in your home. Clean your carpeting, upholstery and other fabric items thoroughly. Smoke can also linger in your heating and cooling equipment, so have them cleaned and replace their filters as well.
