Many of us are all aware that smoke of any kind can leave a strong and lasting odor. The problem many people have with smoke is that no matter how many different tips and tricks they try, the stubborn smoke smell remains. From painting the walls to changing the carpet, removing smoke from a home and/or business is not that easy. Many steps need to be taken and special equipment may have to be used, such as an ozone generator.
So, how are you supposed to remove that annoying smoke odor?
There is plenty of advice online about smoke removal. Some of these tips come with appealing illustrations that can make many feel hopeful. Although, once the step by step instructions are completed, the stubborn odor is only temporarily masked. The only way to get rid of smoke odor, whether it is from smoking tobacco or a house fire, is finding and removing all smoke molecules within the area.
This is where things get tricky. Every little corner, crack, and fabric, must be removed, cleaned well, and washed, if necessary. Since you are trying to remove smoke molecules, it’s safe to assume that these are not visible and having an idea of what area, if not all, has been affected. So, if you had a fire in the home, you would have a better idea of which room would need to be treated. Same goes for smoking. If you or anyone in the home used to smoke in a specific area, then this is the area that must be treated and cleaned from top to bottom.
We enjoy helpful DIY projects but in all honesty, depending on the degree of the lingering smoke odor, we highly recommend calling a smoke removal specialist like us, Cook Bros. Cleaning & Restoration. We say this because cleaning an area from top to bottom doesn’t always guarantee that the odor will go away. Smoke molecules are small and we have the necessary equipment that will find and break up the molecules in the area that is being treated. With our Ozone Treatment, we are able to successfully remove fire and smoke odors from any property. Ultimately, knowing when to call a professional will save you more money and time in the end.
Many things happen to many people as we live our lives. People graduate from college, get married, and others must have to bury loved ones. For those who have lost loved ones through an unfortunate murder in the home must also dread the moment of clean up.
Did you know that families of victims of these horrible crimes had to clean up the aftermath?
Before companies like, Cook Bros Restoration, existed, these family members had no other options but do the task, themselves.

Times like these are hard and unbearable and we can ease the dreading of having to clean up the mess, by compassionately, safely, and discreetly restoring a scene to a safe state.

1. Mold Problems
If you have a large mold problem, calling a specialist is in your best interest. Leaving a mold problem untreated can result in structural damage to your home and possible thousands in repairs.
2. Mold Detection
If you’re not sure if you have a mold problem or not, a water damage specialist can assess the situation for you. After a very rainy season, it’s smart to get your house checked for leaks, water damage, and mold regardless of suspicion.
3. Water Removal
If you’ve encountered a large leak or a flood, a specialist will have all the equipment needed to take care of the situation quickly and simply. If there is a lot of water but you think you can take care of it yourself, assess whether you think structural damage can occur within the extra time it may take you as opposed to a specialist.
After a major leak or flood, it’s important to dry out the affected area. If you do not have the enmities to do this, most water damage teams own several large, high power drying fans to prevent further damage.
If a strange smell in your home just won’t go away in your home, consider calling a water damage specialist for this as well. Most people don’t know they handle strange odors, but they do have anything you’re going to need to dispel most bad smells.
If your home was hit by flood, mildew, mold, or leaks, structural or other damage may have occurred. To guarantee your home looks the same way it used to, call a specialist as they specialize in restoring homes after this particular kind of damage.
7. Sanitation Work
Water damage specialists can also handle septic systems, broken dishwashers, or other plumbing or water utility devices. In some cases, a water specialist may offer much lower prices and more accurate work than a regular plumber.
8. Assessing Damage
Whatever your water damage woes, a water damage specialist is the right person to tell you exactly how bad they are. Before hiring anyone to do any work, make sure you have a pretty good idea of just what is damaged and what needs to be done.
