As a company, our fire damage restoration services and professional cigarette smoke removal consist multitude of steps to ensure we complete a thorough cleanup and restoration – no matter what caused the smoke.

Inspection and Smoke Damage Assessment

Thorough examination and testing of the adjacent areas within your property are conducted meticulously to assess the scope and severity of cigarette smoke damage, soot, and potential structural damage. This crucial step forms the foundation for devising a comprehensive plan of action tailored to address the specific damages incurred. By meticulously inspecting and evaluating your entire home, we aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of the extent of the smoke infiltration, and soot deposition. This meticulous assessment of extensive damage serves as a vital guide for formulating an effective strategy to begin the restoration process.

Air Purification and Deodorization

Air purification involves the removal of airborne smoke molecules present in the atmosphere, typically accomplished through the use of air scrubbers and air filters using Ozone Treatment. Once the air is purified, the next step involves deodorization to eliminate lingering odors. This phase employs specialized equipment like ozone generators designed for this purpose.

Our specialized approach involves employing proprietary disinfectants, masking agents, pairing agents, filtration agents, and/or enzyme digesters tailored to address the severity of the smoke damage and the unique requisites of your situation.

Avoid Touching and Cleaning

Trying to remove smoke and cigarette odor can be difficult. The professionals at H2 Renovations know how to clean, restore, and repair homes and businesses that need smoke and smell remediation. Avoid handling soot-covered items with bare hands, as skin oils can cause permanent staining on surfaces. Cigarette smoke residue is a yellowish-brown, gluey substance that sticks to every surface in a home, making it difficult and time-consuming to remove. If your Smoke Damage was caused by a fire, refrain from cleaning walls, painted surfaces, shampooing carpets, or upholstery without contacting H2 Renovations first. Using improper products or methods may result in further or irreparable damage. Similarly, avoid cleaning electrical appliances, computers, or digital devices or other surfaces that might have been exposed to fire, heat, or water without consulting an authorized repair service to prevent potential hazards.

FAQS on Smoke Removal

Absolutely! While smoke and soot damage can present challenges, the team at H2 Renovations undergoes specialized training in highly effective residue removal techniques. Moreover, we utilize specialized cleaning equipment and exclusive fire restoration products designed specifically for this purpose. Whenever an item is deemed recoverable, we undertake its cleaning process internally or collaborate with specialized vendors proficient in cleaning specific item types.

The sensory indicators—smells, visible residues, and even surface textures—might suggest the impact of smoke and soot on your property. Even residences in proximity to a wildfire might experience these effects without direct flame exposure. However, merely acknowledging the potential for contaminants isn’t sufficient. H2 Renovations technicians perform meticulous inspections and pre-tests on surfaces, offering a comprehensive understanding of the affected areas, the extent of damage, and the spread of smoke and soot throughout your residence. This thorough examination remains the most reliable method to ascertain the presence and potential scope of damage.

Exposure to smoking not only affects individuals but also generates lingering odors that cling to every surface within the smoking environment. Residues from smoking, often presenting as a yellowish-brown substance, adhere persistently to walls, furnishings, and plastics, and can permanently alter their appearance. The pervasive nature of cigarette smoke leads it to infiltrate highly absorbent items such as carpets, upholstery, bedding, walls, clothing, electronics, and more.

Moreover, the building’s HVAC system disperses smoke odors and chemicals throughout its entirety. Over time, affected surfaces become visually unappealing, while the persistent odors can disturb numerous individuals. The repercussions of prolonged indoor smoking mirror those of fire, albeit tobacco smoke chemicals prove significantly more challenging to eradicate compared to actual fire residues.

Removing tobacco residue poses a formidable challenge, demanding professional-grade equipment and services.
