Smoke Damage Restoration
When it comes to smoke damage, there’s no time to waste. Smoke can be a silent killer that lingers in your furniture, flooring, and walls and leaves long-term effects.

Cleaning Smoke Damage in Colorado Springs
It’s not just the fire itself that can cause damage to your home. Smoke and soot can seep through cracks in the wall, ceiling, and other hidden places inside your house after a fire.
While smoke damage primarily occurs during a fire, that is not the only reason you may find evidence of smoke damage in your house. Something like a home furnace that has not been properly calibrated or is malfunctioning may be causing smoke damage that can go unnoticed. With that, soot, the byproduct of combustion, is carried through the home by smoke. This allows it to seep behind walls, ceilings, attics, or into other areas that may not be obviously affected by a fire.
If proper smoke remediation is not performed, damage from a fire, a faulty furnace, or any other cause of smoke and soot in the home can lead to health and safety risks. Leaving smoke damage untreated can cause:
- Health issues, including asthma and other similar conditions.
- Etching, caused by low PH in soot, can be found in metal and/or furniture pieces in your home.
- Staining, especially on porous or lighter colored materials throughout your home, can permanently change the pigmentation the longer it sits untreated.
If you have smoke damage after a fire or suspect you have smoke damage in your home from any other source, call Jenkins Restorations to keep your family safe and get back your peace of mind.
