Fire Damage Cleaning FAQs
Can I hire machines to do the fire damage cleaning?
We would strongly advise you against purchasing or hiring fire damage cleaning equipment online. As well as it being costly, there’s no guarantee it will work. If you’re willing to spend the money on hiring a fire damage cleaning machine, you’re able to hire a professional team of technicians.
Are the affected materials and equipment dangerous to be around?
Yes – any materials or furniture in the property will most likely be contaminated with harmful substances such as ash or soot. Avoid the affected areas if possible, however, if you must enter the rooms, be sure to wear a mask, gloves and long clothes.
How can fire damage affect my health?
Soot and ash residue caused by the fire can be detrimental to your health. Soot particles are tiny enough to enter your lungs and in extreme cases can lead to cancer. Ash, on the other hand, is more likely to be a threat if you have respiratory problems, such as allergies or asthma.
Are there any hazards I should be wary of once the fire has been extinguished?
Even after the fire has been extinguished, there will still be contaminated particles circulating in the air. Two of the biggest hazards are soot and ash.
What type of damage will a fire leave?
A fire can leave long-lasting damage to a property, particularly if neglected for a period of time. The harmful toxins found in smoke may permanently discolour furniture or other surfaces. There may also be structural damage to the building.
How do I know if the environment is contaminated?
Solid surfaces will likely have visible marks, but other contaminated particles may be circulating in the atmosphere without you knowing. Our technicians are able to identify even hidden particles through use of thermal imaging.
Estimates and charges
How much will it cost to deal with the fire damage?
The cost of the service will depend on the size of the property and the severity of the fire damage.
Booking the clean
Why it is so important to begin the fire restoration process quickly?
One of the reasons we offer our services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is to ensure that all situations are dealt with promptly. The restoration process should begin as soon as possible in order to avoid contaminated particles setting further into the furniture, walls and floors.
How quickly can ICE Cleaning to be on the scene after a fire has taken place?
ICE technicians can be on the scene within a matter of hours of your call.
Will you be able to restore the property back to it's original condition?
Whilst we can’t make any promises, we guarantee our technicians will do all that they can to restore the property as close to its original state as possible.

Following a fire, an emergency response is required. Known as the golden period of recovery, the initial 24 hours after a fire can make a huge difference. Taking action during this time will minimise the level of fire damage left behind.
Our rapid response teams can reach you in several hours to begin the restoration process as soon as possible. Our emergency fire damage clean up services aim to recover as much of the property and its contents as possible, whilst preventing long-term damage.
How does smoke damage a house?
After the fire has taken place, smoke will settle on any surface that it touches, leaving behind an acidic film. If not dealt with promptly, this smoke may cause permanent damage.
If the necessary actions aren’t taken, the smoke will soon penetrate your furniture, walls and carpets, causing discolouration. You may also notice a lingering odour.
Removing the smoke smell can be difficult – you’ll likely need professional help. Here at ICE Cleaning, we offer a specialist fire smoke odour removal service to neutralise unwanted smells in your home.
Is it safe to stay in a house with smoke damage?
The health effects of fire smoke should not be underestimated. Smoke inhalation is the primary cause of death in the UK, with 75% of house fire victims passing from the effects of smoke rather than the fire itself.
The same goes for soot and ash. The average soot particle is 2.5 microns – small enough to enter your lungs without you even knowing. You should take strict measures to avoid contact with soot at all costs, or else you may develop skin irritation or even skin cancer (Science Learning Hub).
If soot particles manage to enter your body, they can cause severe breathing difficulties. Those with asthma should take extra precautions to protect their health.
Ash particles are bigger than soot particles, so they’re unlikely to reach your lungs. However, exposure to ash may still lead to respiratory issues. Similarly, ash particles present an imminent threat for those with existing conditions, including bronchitis.
What’s the difference between soot and ash?
Ash refers to the solid remains of a fire. Ash particles are dense, meaning they’re too heavy to be moved around by the smoke, so you’ll find it where the actual fire took place.
Soot, on the other hand, is an oily, lightweight, substance that can be moved, therefore it’s likely to have spread around different rooms within the property. Soot is the build-up of black or dull brown particles of carbon and tar.
What to do before professional cleaners arrive
Whilst waiting for our team of experts to begin the fire clean up services, there are several steps you can take to stop the situation from getting worse. These include:
- Removing all unwanted curtains and furniture
While we may be able to salvage certain belongings, we’d recommend throwing out any items – such as clothes, fabric curtains or furniture – which can be easily replaced.
- Wiping over solid surfaces
You can run a damp cloth over solid surfaces, like your kitchen table or worktops, to remove excess smoke particles. However, you’ll still need specialist equipment to eliminate the smoke damage.
- Ventilating the property
Open any windows and doors for regular intervals during the day to allow fresh air to circulate. This will force the contaminated smoke particles out of your home, creating a clean environment.
If you are allowed to re-enter the property, here are some ways to protect your health
- Avoid skin contact
If you can, remove yourself from the property until it’s safe to re-enter. If you must enter your home, avoid skin contact where possible. Make sure to wash your body immediately should contact arise.
- Wear a mask
You should wear a proper face covering whilst on the property to avoid inhaling or ingesting dangerous soot or ash particles.
- Cover your body
The same applies to your body. Wear gloves and long-sleeved clothes to avoid contamination if required to enter the building.
Our 3-stage cleaning method for fire-damaged properties
We take pride in our cleaning methods and processes that ensure your property is smoke and odour free, scrubbed of dangerous soot particles, and ready for refurbishment. Our 3-step process is incredibly thorough, utilising our best equipment and solutions to get it done right.
- We sanitise the area with air treatment equipment and remove all surface contaminants.
- The affected property is cleaned with industrial-grade solutions and tools, eliminating all smoke residue.
- We compile a document of the work conducted and carry out a moisture survey before providing you with a decontamination certificate.
We will safely restore your home as close to its original condition as possible
From odour neutralisation to the removal of debris, our fire cleaning services provide an all-in-one solution for all levels of fire damage.
We will not enter your home or business until the local authorities have confirmed that the property is structurally safe. Once we have the go-ahead, we’ll carry out a full risk assessment to determine the extent of the fire damage and develop a plan of action.
During the fire damage restoration process, we may ask you to evacuate the site. This ensures all parties remain safe and protected throughout the clean. Any technicians that enter the property will be dressed in full PPE.
