How to Remove Smoke Damage on Walls with Fiberlock Products

March 20, 2018How To

For homes or buildings that have experienced recent fire or smoke damage, time is of the essence to repair the damage and eliminate the smoke odor before it seeps into the walls permanently. Damages from fire and smoke can continue to build up as time goes by, so urgency is key when it comes to fire damage restoration.

Because of the harmful toxins that fire and smoke damage can leave behind, it’s important for contractors and professionals to choose quality products such as Fiberlock ULTRA RECON Smoke Odor Sealer to avoid safety hazards and ensure a timely cleanup. The Fiberlock brand is trusted by professionals across the country, and is easy to use for fire damage restoration.

With Fiberlock ULTRA RECON Smoke Odor Sealer, you can control smoke damage on walls and other areas of the home in just three steps:

Step One: Preparation to Remove Smoke Damage on Walls

In order to remove smoke damage on walls, the affected areas need to be prepped for the sealant. The first step of this process is to have the substrate thoroughly cleaned with high quality cleaners such as RECON Heavy Duty Cleaner or Extreme Duty Cleaner. This is followed by the application of RECON Extreme Duty Odor Counteractant. Once the surface has been extensively cleaned and dried, ULTRA RECON Smoke Odor Sealer will then be applied to encapsulate any odors or stains that remain.

Step Two: Application to Remove Smoke Damage on Walls

Once the damaged areas have been thoroughly cleaned, a generous amount of ULTRA RECON Smoke Odor Sealer should be applied by brush, roller or airless spray. Fiberlock has designed this sealant to encapsulate malodors, stains, and other contaminants with just a single coat. However, if the damaged surface is extremely porous or heavily stained it may require two coats in order to properly remove smoke damage on walls.

Step Three: Drying and Cleanup to Remove Smoke Damage on Walls

One of the biggest advantages of using Fiberlock ULTRA RECON Smoke Odor Sealer to remove smoke damage on walls is the drying time. The average drying time from application to touch is around 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, you should already notice a significant difference in smell. As mentioned above, a second coat can be applied but only after four hours to ensure that the initial coat has attached to the affected substrate.
