We recently called FloodServ not once, but twice when we had 2 water line breaks in different parts of the house. They responded quickly and worked incredibly hard to get the floors and walls dry. They are knowledgeable and friendly. They will always be the first call I make if this ever happens again! Thank you FloodServ!Sherry Ward, McAlester OK
What is Soot?
Soot, also called black soot, is a black powdery substance. Soot is highly acidic and toxic. Soot stubbornly clings to whatever it comes in contact with and can permanently damage many surfaces (including walls, floors, fabrics, etc).
Soot also causes a number of health problems, even weeks after the fire damage has occurred.
That’s why professional smoke damage cleanup is so important. FloodSERV uses the latest tools and professional products to safely and effectively remove soot quickly.

Deodorization: Removing Smoke Odor After a Fire
“A fire in your neighborhood or on your acreage may cause your home to smell like smoke. The odor is caused by tiny microscopic particles that cling to walls, furniture, floors, clothing and other items inside your home,” Gina Peek, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension housing and consumer specialist.
Floodserv uses the latest technology to remove the smoke molecules after a fire. We safely deodorize commercial and residential property.
Smoke deodorization is best left up to fire damage cleanup professionals. However, there are a few things you can do to deodorize after a fire.
Fire Smoke Deodorization Tips
- Let the air circulate
- Baking Soda and Activated charcoal helps absorb odors
- To remove smoke smells from clothes, add 1 cup of vinegar in the wash cycle and repeat washing until all the smoke odor is gone
- FEMA recommends hiring a professional to clean all ductwork, heating, ventilating and air-conditioning units to remove soot, ash and smoke residue. Change the air filters when you first return to the premises and at least once a month for the first year.
