DIY Tips on Cleaning Up Your Home from Fire

and Smoke Damage

House fires are mentally exhausting and physically destructive. Not only does it

result in loss of properly and unfortunate cases lives, recovering from a fire can

also be difficult. And putting out the fire is only the beginning in the process of

recovery. The real work starts after that. Living in a fire affected house without

cleaning it up can prove to be hazardous. All the smoke and soot that is left

behind can be harmful and should not be neglected at any cost. Below are some

useful DIY tips to help you clean up your home from fire and smoke damage.

Cleaning Up The Walls

Clean all the loose soot and dust particles from the walls using a vacuum

cleaner. Make a solution using one gallon of water and 1 tablespoon of

Trisodium Phosphate (TSP), and use a sponge to wipe the wall surface with it.

Dip some rags into warm water and use it to clean up the walls. Make sure you

are wearing professional rubber gloves and safety goggles. You can then follow

it up by priming and a fresh coat of paint.

Diy tips on cleaning up your home from fire and smoke damage

Getting Rid of The Odor

The walls of your house can absorb smoke odor. You can use some household

items to get rid of this smell. Either you can use soapy/detergent water to wash

down your walls (if washable) or you can use white vinegar which also works for

your floors and furniture. You can also consider other alternatives like baking

soda, activated charcoal, etc. If the fire hadn’t been a minor one, the damage

could be on molecular level. In that case, we recommend you to take

professional help to steer clear of any health hazards.

Cleaning Up Fabrics

While you might require discarding a considerable part of your fabrics, you can

still save some of them. Use a vacuum clear to get rid of all the soot which might

stain your textiles further if not cleaned immediately. Deodorize the carpets,

curtains and other fabrics using dishwashing detergent or if the fabrics are

bleach friendly, you can use a solution of 4-6 tablespoons TSP and a cup of

household bleach.

Though there are methods which enable you to clean up the mess yourself, it’s a

daunting task. Just cleaning it up to make it showy again doesn’t count. The

injurious particles can continue to harm you in spite of all the hard work on your

part. If the fire had been intense and you can see soot and smoke everywhere,

we suggest you to hire professional ​fire damage restoration services​.

Professionals can handle major fire damage much better than you can.
