MHS Smoke Damage and Odor Control

It’s easy to detect the odor of smoke when you walk into a building that’s experienced a fire. Smoke odor and smoke residue settles in and lingers everywhere – in walls, floors, furnishings, even fixtures. Regardless of how small the fire was or how quickly it was extinguished, the resulting smoke odor permeates the entire environment. These aftereffects can make people nauseous and sick with headaches or other symptoms. In especially bad cases, people must temporarily vacate the property until the problem is cleaned up. This upsets your home life or leaves your business operations in total upheaval.

Don’t go it alone. If you had a fire and are now dealing with residual smoke odor, MHS Restoration, a residential and commercial fire damage cleanup and restoration company, can help. We offer 24/7 cleanup and restoration services when you need fast, professional help, and serve the Chicago area suburbs of Crystal Lake, Libertyville, Barrington, Palatine, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Naperville, Downers Grove, and Elmhurst, and the surrounding suburbs. We put your needs first and strive to meet your every need with our quick response time and attention to every last detail.

Once firefighters and emergency personnel have given the approval to re-enter the property, the next step is to remove all signs of smoke and odor damage as quickly as possible. Some people try to do the cleanup themselves with products from the local home improvement store. While store-bought smoke cleanup solutions serve to mask smoke odor, that is all they do. They work temporarily without completely eliminating the odor at its source. People who attempt to tackle the job themselves quickly realize just how difficult and even futile the process of removing smoke odor is. Call for professional help if you want to completely clean smoke deposits and eliminate smoke odor.

How MHS Restoration Removes Smoke Odor

To properly clean smoke damage from a fire and control odor, our trained professionals:

1. Evaluate damage – We fully assess the smoke and ash damage caused by the fire to determine the extent of the cleanup and restoration required.

2. Identify Damaged Property – Together we identify and list belongings and furnishings with smoke odor damage that require cleaning and restoration. To reduce the potential for further smoke odor damage, you may also want to have non-damaged items removed until the clean-up process is complete.

3. Remove and Properly Dispose of Non-Salvageable Items – We remove items that have sustained too much smoke damage to be cleaned.

4. Clean, Sanitize, and Disinfect – We use professional-grade equipment and safe cleaning solutions to clean and eliminate smoke odor and residue from exposed surfaces: floors, ceilings, windows, woodwork, walls, fixtures, etc.

5. Clean, Sanitize, and Disinfect Air Vents and HVAC – So smoke particles that landed in air ducts and HVAC systems are not blown back inside for building occupants to breathe in, we thoroughly clean these systems.

6. Clean, Sanitize, and Disinfect the Exterior – Our smoke-odor removal process goes beyond the inside of your property to also include cleaning of exterior siding and windows, decks, driveways – whatever needs cleaning – so you can trust smoke odor and residue has been completely removed from your property.

7. Defog and Neutralize – To neutralize the smoke odor, we may close off and defog the affected area or apply some other safe technique to completely remove the smoke odor from the air.

8. Repair and Renovate Your Property – If any part of your structure has sustained damage, we take care of all necessary repairs and restorations – all done to your specifications – so you don’t have to deal with multiple contractors.
