Getting Rid of Smokey Odors After a Fire 

The fire is out, but what can you do now to return your home to normal? If you’ve suffered fire damage and need fire damage repair in Toledo East, it’s best to call the experts at SERVPRO to sort it out. But if you’ve dealt with everything yourself, you may still be haunted by the lingering smell of ash and soot. There are several things you can do to get rid of that smell.

These remedies are inexpensive and simple ways to eliminate the everlasting smell that comes with a fire.

Baking soda is a natural odor absorber, so taking several bowls of it and placing them around your house for several days can slowly absorb a lot of the smell. Activated charcoal is another alternative for this same process. Also, weather permitting, you can open your doors and windows in order to get the smell out a bit faster.  

Another step you can take is washing your clothes with white vinegar, which will help get rid of the odors. If the smell remains after the initial wash, repeat the process until the odor is fully eliminated.  

For cleaning walls and furniture, it’s best to call a professional clean up company in your area, like SERVPRO of Toledo East for all your fire restoration and clean up needs!
