The impacts of a house fire can be far reaching and extremely difficult to deal with.  According to Gov.UK, 151,086 fires were attended by rescue services in England in 2021 alone.

This usually results in very costly fire damage cleaning that needs to be undertaken as soon as possible to avoid devaluation of your property.

One of the necessary fallouts you must deal with as the victim of a house fire is smoke odour. If left without treatment, this can lead to a property becoming uninhabitable.

We’ve written this helpful guide to give you the most important information about how to deal with smoke odour if you encounter this in your property. Our team can also attend your property within 60 minutes to assess the damage and offer expert cleaning care.

Why do smoke odours need to be removed from your property?

It will be a red flag for buyers if smoke odour caused by a house fire is still lingering. This would act as a huge deterrent for future buyers of your property.

Smoke odour is not only unpleasant for prospective buyers but will also disrupt your enjoyment of the property.

Bringing in a professional team to remove smoke odours from your property will reduce stress caused by fire damage and ensure that the odour is dealt with in the correct way.

How a professional team will remove smoke odours caused by fire damage

Our team are based all over the nation and our customer services are available 24/7. Once you have been in touch, a survey will be conducted to assess the damage caused by the fire. This involves the team performing a risk assessment, answering any concerns or questions you have and providing solutions catered to your needs.

Following this, you will be given a free quote with an expected cost for the repairs. The cleaning process will then take place in accordance with the survey. All health and safety procedures are followed throughout the process, with our excellent customer service teams there for you every step of the way.

Our fire smoke odour removal team will use specialist equipment to clean surfaces, deodorising agents to help remove the odour, as well as a fresh coat of paint once cleaning has been completed.

You will be in safe hands with our experienced technicians, who hold accreditations with Dewpoint, Safe Contractor, and IOSH.

Steps you can take before professional services attend your property

Even though a professional team is needed to properly remove smoke odours, it is important that all soft furnishings are removed from the property after fire damage has occurred.

Other things you can do yourself are ventilating rooms quickly, as well as mopping and wiping all surfaces damaged by fire.

Our team can then help you on-site, adhering to all necessary COVID-19 measures during the cleaning process to ensure your safety.

Further fire damage cleaning services to make your property safe

Coupled with smoke odour removal, fire damage cleaning is another essential component that must be undertaken to restore a house following a fire.

The fire damage cleaning services we offer are suitable for emergency fire damage, and a bespoke plan can be created to fit your individual requirements.

Our professionals will look to clean your house until it is as near to its pre-fire standards as can be achieved. This could include removing soot from your property, getting rid of waste, and restoring it to high levels of cleanliness.
