Repairing Smoke Damage to Walls
With fires there will always be a degree of smoke damage to your walls, wall paper and paint. If the smoke damage is not too serious, you should be able to scrub it clean with detergents and bleach.
Repairing Flooring & Carpet
There is an abundance of water that is involved in putting out a fire, and your floors and carpets will end up absorbing the worst of it. It’s definitely recommended that you pull up any carpets that have water damage to replace them.
Water can also flow underneath your flooring, and into cracks of hard wood. If you have experience with flooring, you can lift it up and clean under them, but please call a professional Fire Damage Restoration company to assist you.
