Fire and Smoke Damage
Smoke damage to your walls and ceilings can be a vexing problem and is extremely unpleasant to clean. If you are willing to tackle the problem yourself, be prepared from some hard work, depending on the extent and type of damage done.
Types of fire and smoke damage:
- Soot and charring
- Bubbling and blistering
- Smoke Odor and discoloration to walls, and surrounding materials and contents
- Physical and structural damage
- Water damage from fire being extinguished
Soot and Charring
Smoke damage causes black marks and discoloration to your walls and ceiling. Soot is the residue left by smoke. Charring is the actual burning of the paint. You should first assess the extent of the damage and determine whether cleaning is a reasonable option. It may be impossible to clean heavy soot and charring from flat-painted walls, and priming and re-painting may be your only option. There is more hope for satin or semi-gloss finishes, if the charring hasn’t gone too deep.
Bubbling and Blistering
Bubbling and blistering of the paint on your walls and ceiling may occur from excessive heat. A bubble or blister cannot be “undone,” but can be repaired.
Aside from unsightly charring and soot build-up, smoke can leave an unpleasant odor that seems to cling to the walls. Smoke odors can be quite stubborn. Depending upon how strong the smoke odors are, one or more of these methods may prove helpful. Keep in mind, though, that if the smoke odor has permeated into your carpets, draperies, furnishings, etc., there is little that can be done to eliminate the smoke odor unless these items are removed or replaced.
