Our restoration company is well-equipped to handle the comprehensive removal of soot, smoke residues, and debris to restore the property to its previous condition.

  • Thorough Soot Removal: Soot is a black, powdery substance from incomplete combustion. It can cover surfaces throughout your property, including walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture. Our skilled technicians use specialized techniques and cleaning agents to safely and effectively remove soot from various surfaces, preventing further impact and ensuring a clean environment.
  • Debris Removal: Significant debris, including charred and building materials, may be left behind after combustion. Our restoration company performs thorough debris removal, ensuring all hazardous materials are safely and responsibly disposed of. This process is essential for a safe and effective restoration process.
  • Protecting Indoor Air Quality: Soot and smoke residues contain harmful particles that can compromise indoor air quality and pose health risks. Our specialists take all necessary precautions to protect you and your building’s occupants during removal. We use advanced air scrubbers and ventilation techniques to purify the air, promoting a healthy and safe environment.
  • Structural Assessment: Besides removing visible soot and debris, our restoration company conducts a comprehensive structural assessment to identify any hidden issues the flame may have caused. This ensures that no underlying issues go unnoticed and that all necessary repairs are promptly addressed.

At Emergency Restoration Specialists (ERS), we are well-versed in handling various types of smog during a burning. Understanding the characteristics of different smoke types is crucial for effectively planning and executing the restoration process.

Here are the four main types of destruction we handle:

  1. Dry Smoke: Dry smoke results from fast-burning with high heat. It is characterized by fine particles and powdery residue that can spread throughout your commercial space. Dry smoke can be challenging to clean due to its ability to cling to surfaces, making professional cleaning essential to prevent further issues.
  2. Wet Smoke: Wet smoke occurs from slow-burning, smoldering fires that produce thick, sticky residues. It has a strong and pungent odor and tends to coat surfaces in a thick, greasy layer. Wet smoke can be particularly challenging to clean and requires specialized cleaning agents and techniques to remove the residue effectively.
  3. Protein Smoke: Protein smoke results from cooking fires involving meat or other food items. It is virtually invisible, but its distinctive odor can be strong and pervasive. Protein smoke can leave behind a thin, greasy film on surfaces, which can be challenging to remove without professional expertise.
  4. Fuel/Oil Smoke: Fuel or oil smoke results from fires involving burning petroleum-based materials. It produces black, sticky smoke that can stain surfaces and leave a strong, unpleasant odor behind. A prompt and thorough cleanup is essential to prevent long-term destruction caused by corrosive residues.

Our experts at ERS are equipped with the knowledge and tools to tackle all types of destruction effectively. We employ specialized cleaning agents, techniques, and equipment to remove smoke residues and eliminate lingering odors, ensuring a safe and clean environment for your commercial property.


We understand the importance of expert odor removal for your commercial property after smoke. Our restoration is a two-step process that effectively removes soot and eliminates lingering odors. Our skilled professionals are equipped with industrial-grade chemicals and specialized equipment to handle the complexities of odor removal with precision and efficiency.

  • Clothes and Curtains: When dealing with clothes and curtains, we use a mixture of water and trisodium phosphate to safely prepare the items for washing in a regular washing machine. Additional washing cycles are necessary to restore these items without lingering odor, ensuring they are clean and fresh.
  • Furniture: We employ an industrial-strength vacuum to remove soot carefully from the furniture. Attempting to scrub out the soot can push the chemicals deeper into the furniture, causing further destruction. We hold the vacuum several inches above the furniture and skillfully remove the soot to ensure proper cleaning. And to eliminate any remaining smoke particles and odors, we use a sealed ozone layer, which is highly effective in restoring your furniture to its previous condition.
  • Carpet & Floors: Smoke on carpets and floors requires specialized treatment. Our team utilizes either an extraction machine or a thermal fogging machine, depending on the severity of the effect. These methods are the most effective in thoroughly cleaning and removing soot from these surfaces. We carefully monitor the intensity and duration of the treatment to ensure the best results without causing any additional destruction.

At ERS, we pride ourselves in odor removal and restoration for commercial properties. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing exceptional service, using the latest techniques and equipment to eliminate smoke odors and restore your property to its previous condition. With our meticulous approach and attention to detail, you can trust us to deliver outstanding results for your commercial property.

The first step in restoration is to secure the property and assess the extent of the destruction. Our Emergency Restoration Specialists (ERS) team will conduct a thorough inspection to determine the areas affected by burns and soot. This evaluation helps us create a comprehensive restoration plan tailored to your needs.

Attempting restoration on your own is not recommended. Restoration is a complex process that requires specialized knowledge, equipment, and safety measures. Improper cleaning techniques can worsen the damage and lead to health hazards. It’s best to leave the restoration to trained professionals like ERS who can handle it safely and effectively.

The duration of the restoration process can vary depending on the severity of the impact. A minor incident may take a few days to restore, while a more extensive impact could take several weeks. At ERS, we work diligently to minimize downtime and complete the restoration as quickly as possible without compromising the quality of our work.

In most cases, occupying the property during restoration is unsafe, especially in areas severely affected. For the safety of occupants and our restoration team, we recommend finding alternative accommodations until the restoration is complete. Our priority is to create a safe and hazard-free environment for everyone involved.

In many cases, yes. Our team is skilled in salvaging and restoring items affected by fires. We use advanced techniques and equipment to clean and deodorize furniture, documents, electronics, and other belongings. However, some items may be too severely damaged to salvage, and in such cases, we will advise on appropriate replacements or disposal.
