Rapid Fire Smoke Odour Removal Services

We’re a local, reliable cleaning company based in the South East of England.

We’ll include our ICE SHIELD® service free of charge for all fire smoke odour removal customers.

The effects of a fire can be devastating to the structure and even the air inside your home. However, even if your house remains undamaged, there may be invisible risks that could be detrimental to your health if you continue to live there. Even after the flames have eradicated, the smell of smoke lingers — this is due to the fine soot particles that soak into the surfaces of your home.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we can restore your home after a fire and purify the air to make it safe to occupy again. Our expert technicians use industrial-grade tools and solutions that remove soot and smoke odours thoroughly.

Dewpoint® Professional Corporate Membership

Our fire smoke odour removal experts are available for clients across the nation, including Ashford.

When our technicians arrive on-site to conduct a risk assessment, they will identify any potential hazards and determine the source of the odour. We cater to your situation with the best method of odour neutralisation and begin the process with a 6-stage treatment. Our odour removal process utilises state-of-the-art tools and industrial-grade solutions. These ensure that any traces of soot and odour are flushed out.

As part of our solutions, we treat all surfaces within the home if it is safe to access them. This includes the ceilings, walls, floors, and upholstery. Our experts treat the air and flush out any dangerous chemicals and toxins lingering on your property. We always remain on-site until you are satisfied with the results of our work and will assist with disposing of any contaminated objects.

What is soot, and why is it harmful?

After an open flame heats up a surface, you may notice a black residue left behind. For example, after burning a candle in a glass jar, you might see black stains across the surface — an accumulation of soot. When coal, oil, wood, or any other fuel burns, carbon is released into the air, settling onto surfaces, and becoming soot.

Although you might see the soot on some surfaces, individual soot particles are invisible to the naked eye — even smaller than dust. These particles linger in the air and settle deep into porous materials. If you cannot see the soot yourself, you will smell it.

Soot contains toxins, chemicals, and acids that damage the structure of your home and impact your health. If you continue to breathe in the air after a fire, you could suffer from:

  • Eye and skin irritation
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Breathing issues
  • Aggravated asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Respiratory damage
  • Increased risk of cancer

What you can do to help reduce the smell

Although the smell of smoke may fade into a duller scent, there will still be soot particles lingering in the air that could continue to damage your health. It is imperative that you contact an odour removal company to come and flush out the deadly chemicals quickly. There are some small things you can do in the meantime before cleaning services show up, such as:

  • Opening all doors and windows to ventilate the property
  • Buying an air purifier to help clear the air
  • Using a dehumidifier to reduce damp and mould
  • Ensure the fireplace chimney is unblocked and open to allow air to escape
  • Use an exterior fan to circulate the air out of the house

Can you keep furniture after a fire?

Depending on the fire damage your furniture has suffered, it is possible to save it. If your furniture sustained water damage due to extinguishing liquids or chemicals, it might be salvageable upon drying but will require professional cleaning. However, dry damage such as smoke, soot, or fire damage makes your furniture almost unsalvageable. Aside from the smell of smoke, it could be charred and beyond repair.

You will likely have to dispose of or replace the following items:

  • Plastic containers
  • Clothing, bedding, and towels
  • Upholstery, curtains, and carpets
  • Hardwood floors and furniture

If you have homeowner's insurance, you may have cover for fire or smoke damage that has impacted your furniture. You should always contact your insurance first to understand what you are and are not covered for — and be sure to document the evidence.
