The damages caused by a fire can be pervasive, even if the fire may have been swiftly extinguished. Almost every item in the affected room needs to be cleaned because of smoke, odor, and soot.

Cleaning smoke residues on hard floors
After light cleaning, smoke and soot may visibly disappear. However, remnants still lurk within the floor and walls of your home, and removing them requires a deep scrub or sanding and refinishing. Soot can be a dry or an oily substance that can leave a thick layer on floors and easily stain items it lands on. It is advisable not to touch any items after a fire because you could rub in soot, causing stains.
During and after a fire, floors collect immense smoke residues as the particles which do not adhere to the walls and ceilings end up on the floor. We may have to perform two cleaning sessions for heavy smoke residues at the beginning and end of the restoration process. For hardwood floors, we scrub along the grain to avoid streaks.
