Long Island Smoke Damage/ Soot Damage Restoration and Clean Up Service

Experiencing a fire of any sort in your home is disturbing enough, but along with the stress of the fire itself is dealing with soot damage because it rarely spares anything and one wrong move and you can stain the items even more, rendering them no longer salvageable. To be able to conduct soot restoration and clean up effectively, you should know the basic characteristics of soot damage so you will know how to deal with the smoke clean up. Soot damage can destroy your home in many ways including embedding itself into every possession you own. It is important to remedy soot damage to prevent staining and further issues that are difficult to resolve without proper equipment and expertise. Therefore, you should hire a professional fire restoration company to handle smoke/soot damage clean up.

Risks of doing smoke damage / soot clean up restoration on your own

Any type of soot can be ingrained deeper into the surface if improperly handled, thus causing more damage and a more expensive remediation process. Additionally, the restoration should be done sooner than later because soot can damage everything it lands on within hours, sparing nothing. Walls, furniture, items made of plastic, marble, clothing, bedding etc. The time you will waste just trying to figure out what type of soot you have to cleanup can already lead to irreversible damage.

The following methods are recommendations and guidelines for fire and smoke damage:

  • Wear gloves such as household dish washing gloves, long sleeved shirts and pants to avoid skin contact. If you get any smoke ash on your skin, wash it off as soon as possible.
  • Wear personal protective gear such as a dust mask to avoid breathing in ash and other airborne particles from fire damage.
  • Ventilate the area (open windows, etc.) to remove soot and odor.
  • Remove fire damaged burned debris to reduce odor source.
  • Install dehumidifiers to control moisture in the air (relative humidity) to reduce water damage, especially where water was used to extinguish the fire.
  • Wipe all metallic finishes with cooking oil to prevent rust and staining.
  • Clean plastic or surfaces such as PVC windows and white painted surfaces using a mild alkali detergent to remove possible acidic soot which may activate with moisture in the air (humidity) and cause permanent staining.
  • Undertake triage assessments to clean or remove all contents as quickly as possible and in order of value.
  • Deodorants should not be used as they mask smoke odor which is a significant indicator of health concerns.
  • Where smoke damage occurs, surface staining cannot be removed and you may consider the use of specialist paint to obliterate the smoke damaged stain. Typically these paints are lacquers or oil based.

What People Are Saying About Us

Real Customer Reviews about Our Smoke Damage Cleanup Service

Patricia S. On 1/20/16

Exceptional service. Workers were very friendly and very clean workers.
I found that I found the workers for Flag Enterprises to be very professional and friendly. They always arrived when they said they would which was important to me. I feel confident that they removed all the lead that was found because they worked very neatly and cleanly. When they left for the day there was no trace of dust or debris. I am very happy that Flag Enterprises was used for my Build it Back project. Flag Enterprises were very professional. They always arrived when they said they would which was an important aspect for me. They worked efficiently. I was not always there when they were at work but when I would arrive home I would find the places where they worked to be exceptionally clean and free of debris

Margaret G. On 10/25/15

High quality service, professional and friendly company!
The Flag company is a reliable and efficient company. The workers deliver expert service. They put all their energies into whatever job the company allows them to handle. For example, they did a clean-up job for me, after I had had a fire and smoke condition in my home, and the result was great. They cleaned areas that were really out-of-reach, and at the end no residue of sooth remained on the walls. As a result of my experience with the Flag company, I recommend them highly.

Sidney F. on 5/21/2015

Office fire clean out. These guys were professional, honest, understanding, patient and respectful. Made bad experience, tolerable.

Benjamin G. on 3/13/2015

There was a fire in the apartment next to us and above us. Everything we owned was covered in soot and smelled of smoke. And to make matters worse, we had just had a baby 8 weeks before. My wife and I were in a panic. Tommy and his team showed up the next morning and began working. They cleaned every inch of our apartment and all of our belongings. I hope I will never need their services again, but if I am ever in that unfortunate situation again, Flag will be the first call I make (if my wife doesn’t beat me to the chase).

Pat T. on 4/16/2015

I had a small kitchen fire at my home and can truly recommend the Flag Enterprises as an excellent company to do business with. They were recommended to me by my Insurance company USSA, an A rated company that I have had for at least 30 yrs. The men from Flag arrived promptly at my home just minutes after I reported the fire to my insurance company, with large fans to take away the odor of the fire and advised me to leave till the odor had been removed. My experience with this company was excellent. The workers were prompt, polite and helpful cleaning every nook and cranny in my large home, even the basement! The owners took time to make sure I was happy with their work. I definitely would recommend Flag Enterprises but hopefully I will not require their assistance in this manner again.

Juner C. on 4/6/2015

I had a great experience with Flag enterprise even though I had a fire. They were the up most professional people I dealt with during this inconvenience in my life.

Alan K. on 4/15/2015

These people were efficient and eager to please the entire operation went very smoothly
