Why Do I Need Smoke Damage Cleanup?
It’s no secret that smoke leaves an unsavory odor in its wake and that visible soot damage is unsightly, but what about the health implications of long-term exposure to smoke damage? When your home or business experiences a fire, many materials do not burn entirely – instead, they leave behind dangerous waste products like burnt plastic, asbestos-laden building materials, synthetic fabrics and more in the form of debris, soot and smoke.
The only safe way to conduct smoke damage cleanup and restoration is to call in the professionals. Rainbow International’s certified, professional, full-service restoration experts use advanced tools, high-quality ventilation and filtration systems, safety equipment and Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) best practices to help you recover from any fire or smoke damage.

Health Consequences of Smoke & Soot Exposure
Smoke and soot are often made up of microscopic materials that can be harmful if accidentally inhaled or ingested. People exposed to smoke and soot are at risk for both short-term and long-term health problems, including bronchitis and mesothelioma. The elderly, children or people with compromised immune systems are at the highest risk of developing health complications caused by smoke damage.

Smoke damage remediation and restoration fits under the larger umbrella of fire damage restoration.

Other process-determining variables may include these:
- Was a substantial amount of water used to fight the fire? You may also need water damage restoration.
- Is the interior of the structure exposed to the elements due to the fire or firefighting response? You may need board-up services
- What type of materials were burned?
- Is the home or business still structurally stable?
- Were any hazardous materials consumed by the fire?
- Will you be displaced throughout the duration of remediation and restoration? You may need content pack-out services

Cigarette Smoke Damage Restoration
Cigarette smoke and nicotine stains are exceedingly difficult to remove from furniture, wall hangings, drywall, carpet and more. While it might seem like overkill, hiring a full-service restoration company is the safest and easiest way to combat set-in smells and stains. No matter how the damage occurred, we’re proud to offer cigarette smoke damage restoration as one of our services. Schedule an appointment with your local Rainbow International to discuss your cigarette smoke damage restoration plan, today.
