If you have ever had a fire in your home, you know that after the flames are subdued, and the smoke clears, the smell of that tragic experience lingers on. While the smoke odor in your home is unpleasant, it can do more than annoy your olfactory senses; it can be harmful to your health. The smoke residue that remains in a building after a fire is both toxic and carcinogenic, so prompt and proper cleaning are essential. While this seems like a simple task, and one that could be done by a neighbor or even a family member, it is a bit more complicated than your everyday cleaning tasks. In order to thoroughly clean your home or business and rid the building of any odors, a professional must be called in for the job. A professional cleaning and restoration company will utilize the latest technology and equipment to ensure that your home or business is smoke-free.
