Smoke | Soot

Smoke and soot are toxic by themselves, posing a serious risk. Even if a fire is contained in one location, smoke and soot can travel throughout the structure. Smoke travels through electrical outlets, into insulation behind the walls and into every nook and cranny no matter how small. It’s important to understand the different types of smoke and how they can impact your home or business. The first step in our smoke damage clean-up process is to assess the type of smoke damage present and develop a plan of action accordingly. That’s where our knowledge and expertise come into play.


It’s not about getting any restoration company. It’s necessary to get the right restoration company, a local family-owned company. Even though we work with all insurance companies, we work on your behalf. The insurance company can NOT tell you who to use. By law YOU have the right to choose who comes into your home or business. Your insurance company only gives out their vendors names because they agreed to a price list.

Do's and Don'ts if Fire, Smoke or Soot Should Occur


  • Do ensure safety first: evacuate the property and call emergency services immediately.
  • Do open windows to ventilate if safe to do so.
  • Do document the damage for insurance purposes.
  • Do call a professional fire damage restoration company immediately.


  • Don’t attempt to clean soot or smoke damage yourself; it requires professional handling.
  • Don’t use electrical appliances until they’ve been checked.
  • Don’t enter the property until it’s declared safe by authorities.
