A big, and yet often preventable, cause of fires in the home is oil-soaked rags. Summer is a great time for home improvement projects, particularly those that need to be done outdoors. One project that is sometimes taken on by the homeowner is staining a deck, porch or outdoor railing. The oil-based stain soaks through the rags. When not properly disposed of or stored, exposure to the heat outdoors and trapped oxygen can cause these oily rags to ignite.
After a fire, it can be a challenge to remove underlying smoke odors from the carpet, furniture and even walls. It is important to ventilate the area as much as possible, opening doors and windows. Fans directed to exhaust the air outdoors will also help to speed up the process. A deep cleaning of the entire home, including washing the walls, flooring and upholstery will go a long way to removing any lingering smoke odors.
To remove the odor of smoke, ventilate the home as much as possible. This includes opening windows and doors and strategically placing large fans to circulate the air. Baking soda can also be very effective at removing smoke odors. Place several small bowls filled with baking soda around the room for 24 hours, allowing them to absorb the odors. You can sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda onto rugs and carpeting.
