Charlotte Fire Damage Restoration One of the biggest questions people have when they need Fire and Smoke Damage Cleanup is how long will it take?

Anyone who has had a campfire knows that the odor left in your clothes can last a long time. While a sweatshirt can be thrown in the washer and hopefully be made to smell clean and fresh again after a wash or two, there is no such easy solution on cleaning a home that needs Fire and Smoke Damage Cleanup.

Using the analogy of a campfire you can imagine what your house would smell like if a campfire had been burning in your living room for a few hours. However the solution to cleaning up the smoke that clings to your walls and all your possessions and the odor that clings to the air in your house is not easy. Special care has to be taken when doing Fire and Smoke Damage Cleanup as trying to do the work yourself could cause more damage.

The length of time needed to remediate a smoke damaged home or business can vary according to many variables including the source of the smoke (plastic, protein or wood) as well as the severity of the loss. While the time it takes to do the job right can be frustrating the results are worth the wait.
