soot damage in kitchen smoke damage in residential home


As a home or property owner, you may be anxious to start cleaning up right after a fire has occurred. However, you may cause additional damage to your structures if you haven’t been professionally trained in fire restoration services.

Before Restoration Relief arrives, here are some tips to prevent or minimize further damage:

  • If possible, open windows in order to ventilate the area and get the air moving
  • Do not add water to the walls or touch the walls since the oil from your hands and the added moisture will set the soot permanently into the paint
  • If possible, try not to walk in lightly damaged areas to avoid tracking soot from the heavier contaminated areas and creating further damage
  • Please understand if water was used to extinguish a fire, we will take care of all necessary demolition and structural drying before we start any restoration work.
