Dallas-Fort Worth, Amarillo, and Oklahoma City Smoke Damage Restoration
Mr. Restore Can Remove the Smoke Damage in Your Home After a Fire
Removing smoke damage from a home after a fire requires a multi-step process. First, the affected area must be ventilated to remove any remaining smoke. Then, any damaged or unsalvageable materials must be removed, such as charred wood or furnishings. After that, the remaining surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned to remove smoke residue, which can be challenging to remove. This may involve using specialized equipment such as air scrubbers or ozone generators to remove smoke particles from the air and surfaces. Next, any salvageable items must be cleaned and restored, such as clothing or upholstery. Finally, any remaining odors must be neutralized using specialized deodorizing agents.
Our team of smoke damage restoration specialists follows the safety procedures, including wearing protective gear and ensuring adequate ventilation. By trusting our teams at Mr. Restore, you can be confident that you will receive the highest level of professionalism, quality of work, and outcomes you deserve.

Most often, yes. You'll need to check your specific policy for the full scope of coverage, but in general, if the damage was caused by a flame, it's covered. Your best bet is to hire a professional restoration company, like Mr. Restore, to help you through the claims process. We know how to avoid some common missteps when it comes to making sure the entire loss is documented and covered. Many homeowners and insurance companies forget, for instance, to consider that your HVAC system will need to be cleaned of soot, and, since fires are extinguished using water, many areas of your home may need to be restored due to water damage even if they weren't directly affected by the fire.
Depending on the extent or location of the fire damage, some homeowners can move back in a few days or longer. The fire department will usually turn off electricity and gas to the property right away, and that won't be restored until a building inspector says that it's safe to turn those utilities back on. If you experienced significant smoke damage and the home's occupants include elderly persons, young children, or those with chronic health conditions, you may be wise to stay until the smoke cleanup is complete. Contracting with a company experienced in fire damage restoration, like Mr. Restore, can often get you back home sooner because they'll have the resources to hire and manage the many tradespeople who will need to work together to make the home liveable again.
DIY soot removal is not recommended. Commercially available products can actually cause permanent damage to surfaces. Soot itself is primarily oil-based, but that residue also contains toxic, possibly biohazard contaminants.
Smoke damage is rarely limited to one area of the house, and it leaves behind a residue that can hide in crevices and out-of-reach areas, and a simple "airing out" may not be sufficient. We recommend consulting with a smoke damage technician from Mr. Restore who can help you troubleshoot the next steps.
