Smoke Damage Repair

The effects of smoke linger long after the fire. Different kinds of smoke and different surface types require different removal methods. Our experts will identify the type of smoke – oil smoke, dry smoke, wet smoke, protein smoke – and use the best cleaning treatment available for walls, floors, and furnishings.

Fire and Smoke Damaged Content Cleaning and Recovery

Smoke and soot can damage every sort of business and home contents, furnishings and other belongings, all in different ways. IRS Restoration cleaning specialists have the expertise, tools and technology to remove odor and fire residue from soft blankets, to computer equipment, to leather goods, to delicate porcelain figurines.

Hard Contents Cleaning

IRS uses its Omegasonics Restoration System to provide ultrasonic cleaning for a wide range of fire damaged hard contents. Our technicians can safely remove soot and smoke residue from tools, antique crystal, golf clubs, window blinds, and more.

Soft Contents Cleaning

Without proper cleaning, smoke odor stays in clothing, linens, drapes, pillows, clothing and other “soft” items for months or longer. Soot and fire residue stains often can’t be removed using readily-available household products. IRS Restoration specialists recover soft items using the Esporta ES-3300 Wash System. Its patented, environmentally-friendly washing system safely and thoroughly deep cleans, deodorizes and sanitizes soft contents to return them to pre-fire condition.

Document Recovery Services

Smoke-damaged books and documents are typically discarded. IRS Restoration reclaims paper items through a process of freeze drying to eliminate lingering smoke odors.

Electronic Recovery Services

IRS Restoration safely removes smoke and soot from sensitive electronics, including computers, routers, televisions, and even industrial electronics using state-of-the-art electronics cleaning equipment.
