Closed fireplace flues, and electrical fires can send smoke throughout your house, charring walls, covering everything, and stinking up the place. The longer you let smoke and odors linger, the more they soak into walls, carpets, and furniture.

One of the first things one should to do is ventilate the house as quickly as possible to mitigate smoke damage. Quick action is the only way to minimize the destruction. Restoration costs increase, and damages escalate when the cleaning process is extended.In most cases when it comes to major destruction to a home, it’s always smart to have a professional give his or her opinion on the matter.
