Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, in Your Hair, in Your Nose, in the Curtains…

Smoke and soot are the residues of products that did not burn completely. The residue is usually a perfect (where “perfect” means “as if designed to make everything wrong get even worse”) mixture of light and sticky. It is light enough to float through the house. It is sticky enough to lodge into fabrics, on the interior surface of air vents, in carpet fibers, and on furniture, walls, and appliances.

The smell of smoke comes through applications of paint, wallpaper, and whatever types of air-fresheners people spray. The smell is bad enough by itself, but its presence means that smoke particles are still present and therefore still able to do damage.

Even if you have lingering odors from smoke damage long ago, it is not too late to call SERVPRO of Plainfield/Naperville South. While calling us sooner has advantages, our advanced cleaning, disinfection, and odor-removal systems will leave your home clean and free of odor.

Remember: we do not cover up the bad smells. We get rid of them.

Oh Yeah, Not Just Smells

We hope you do call us as soon as you can, however, so we can remove the visible damage as well as the odors.

Because smoke and soot continue to corrode surfaces while they’re in contact, the sooner we remove them, the more damage we can prevent as well as remove.

Remediation of smoke and soot damage requires training. Our team members know how to:

  • Clean different types of smoke or soot damage (plastics vs. protein vs. other organic materials, for example)
  • Clean different surfaces.
  • Block furniture so the pieces retain their shapes.
  • Clean textiles (including clothing) to prevent smoke and soot particles from working their ways further into the fabrics.
  • Do all the above safely.

Trivia Break!

“Wild goose chase” originally referred to a type of horse race where horses followed a lead horse at a set distance.  Apparently, it looked like wild geese flying in the V-formation. Shakespeare used the phrase in “Romeo and Juliet”, and the meaning evolved from there.
