We had a fire in our roof yesterday from the chimney. Although there was minimal roof damage the smoke was intense. The floor was also destroyed in two rooms.
In the other rooms I'm wondering how the smell will really be removed from the carpet? It seems like the smell is worse on the opposite side of the house from the fire for some reason. That side will not have carpet replaced according to the adjuster, just treated with the ionizer and cleaned. Will this be sufficient, along with painting walls and sealing the roof rafters, new insulation in the attic?
Also, the garage is really smelly. What do we need to do about the cars and how will they ever get the smell out of the walls and ceiling in there? Somehow the smoke got trapped in the garage while the firefighters had the door open to pull hoses through the garage door.
Has anyone experienced something like this?
