Smoke Damage Restoration Process

Smoke Damage Inspection

When you call Forefront Building & Restoration, the first thing we do is send one of our smoke damage experts to conduct a thorough inspection of the damage and will identify what type of smoke residue is left behind from the fire. Depending on the types of materials that burned in the fire, there will be different types of residue left behind. Each residue requires a unique cleaning method to efficiently and completely remove the stains and the associated odors.

Smoke Damage & Soot Cleanup

Because it’s not as obviously destructive as fire damage, smoke damage often gets overlooked as a job for professionals. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case, and because of the nature of smoke, it becomes nearly impossible to adequately clean the affected areas without professional equipment.

Forefront Building & Restoration uses advanced techniques to remove all of the lingering residues and stains in your home or business. Depending on the smoke type, some combination of wet, dry, abrasive, immersion and foam cleaning methods will be used.


Fires can cause quite a bit of obvious damage, but while the smoke damage can be less visually noticeable, it can also be equally difficult to remove. The odor left behind can be staggering, and often times creates an uninhabitable living or business space. Absorptive materials like carpet, dry wall, ceiling panels, duct work, clothing, and more will all require deodorization before the property can be deemed habitable.

Just like our cleanup service, in order to effectively deodorize your property, we will use a varied combination of advanced deodorization techniques. We have the professional equipment needed to completely remove the lingering odors in your home or business.

Smoke Damage Restoration

Based on the amount of irreparable materials we found in our inspection, along with whatever we needed to remove during our cleaning, some restoration and reconstruction will be needed. Forefront Building & Restoration provides all the necessary services to restore your home or business to like-new condition. Just like our other restoration services, we pride ourselves on our collaborative work with your insurance company taking the drama and confusion out of this process and making sure you receive the coverage you deserve.

Advanced Smoke Deodorization Services

At Forefront Building & Restoration, we will utilize a handful of advanced techniques to deodorize your property. It would be nice if a simple cleaning followed by some deodorizing spray would do the job, but unfortunately the odor left behind by smoke damage is much more difficult to remove. Using professional-grade equipment is usually the only way to adequately eliminate all the residual odors from the smoke damage.

Our most effective deodorization techniques include thermal fogging, misting, hydroxyl radicals, ozone machines, air scrubbers, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Every technique we use at Forefront Building & Restoration is selected with the safety of you, your family, pets, and clients in mind.
