Soot & Smoke Damage

Even small kitchen fires and puff back from fireplaces can leave a home permeated with soot and smoke odors. Soot is oily and spreads easily, staining carpets, draperies, and other household textiles. And smoke odors are notoriously difficult to remove due to its unique molecular composition. Most household deodorizing sprays and disinfectants provide only temporary relief. If not properly removed, the smoke odor will reoccur for long periods of time reinfecting your structure, contents and clothes.

High Country Cleaning is trained and equipped to handle small fire’s soot and smoke damage jobs. First, we remove the affected furniture, contents, and clothes off-site so they do not continue to absorb odors and soot residues. They are placed in a clean environment to be thermal fogged, deodorized and cleaned with special agents. Second, the affected rooms are methodically cleaned by creating safe zones so that smoke and soot is not tracked back and forth. Walls and other affected structures are cleaned with a chemical sponge to remove the soot. Third, High Country Cleaning uses counteractant chemicals and additives that can break up these unique smoke molecules. The affected rooms are “ozoned” and “thermal fogged” to get at smoke molecules hiding in your walls. And finally, the affected areas’ carpets, upholstery and draperies are sanitized and cleaned.

If you are looking for a long lasting solution to smoke and soot damage, call the experts at High Country Cleaning! This process is also effective for other “difficult” odors like skunk, fried fish and smokers in your nonsmoking unit.
