Tips for Getting Rid of Smoke Odor in Your Home after a Fire:
1. Air Out the House
Leaving all of the doors and windows open is a great way of ventilating the indoor air. There may still be smoke particles in the air of the home, so letting it ventilate before more of it settles into the walls and furniture will help later on.
2. Use Fire Smoke Odor Removal Products
