Smoke & Water Damage Restoration – Westchester, NY


Smoke and water damage to a home or business is easiest to repair soon after it occurs. The longer you wait, the more chance the damage can permanently affect upholstered furniture, draperies, and clothing, which can result in the need for total replacement. Embassy Cleaners’ smoke and water damage repair services restore fabrics to their pre-loss condition with odor neutralization that helps put the incident in the past.

Smoke Damage

When furnishings, window coverings, and clothing suffer smoke damage, they can be difficult and unpleasant to clean. Black marks, odor, and discoloration caused by smoke and soot can be distressing to homeowners, but such damage doesn’t mean the items are beyond cleaning. It’s not easy trying to remove smoke odors without professional cleaning because it’s a stubborn smell that permeates fabrics if left untreated too long. The sooner smoke damage is addressed, neutralized, and cleaned, the better chance there is that the items are restorable to pre-loss condition. The acid residues of smoke can damage furnishings, clothing, and draperies permanently within days following the incident.

Treating Smoke Damage

Along with removing smoke and soot residue, Embassy Cleaners works to rid homes of smoke odors. The best way to remove smoke odor from the home is to remove the sources of the odor, including clothing, window coverings, and upholstered furniture. Embassy Cleaners takes smoke damaged items to its innovative ozone facility that completely neutralizes smoke odors, and treats the home using accredited smoke-removal technologies. Following the smoke damage repair, clothing, drapes, and upholstered furnishings are cleaned and deodorized.

Water Damage

Just like treating smoke damage, treating water damage needs to happen as soon as possible following the incident. Causes of water damage include anything from a broken pipe to area flooding, and usually happens when homeowners least expect it. Few people are prepared for the damage water can cause, but it’s essential that water removal and proper drying happen quickly before any clothing, upholstered furnishings, or draperies receive treatment. Expert assistance is the best course of action for removing water from the home, and Embassy Cleaners specializes in treating water-damaged fabrics, upholstery, and carpets safely and effectively.

Treating Water Damage

When clothing and draperies are soaked from water damage, it’s tempting to throw them in the laundry. While this can help with water-safe fabrics, it can irreversibly damage delicate materials used in clothing and window coverings. It’s impossible to put upholstered furniture and carpet in the washing machine, so it’s best to enlist the help of a professional to clean and restore upholstered furniture, draperies, clothing, and carpet. The experts at Embassy Cleaners have skills and training caring for all types of upholstery, including the most fragile materials. They test any water-damaged fabric to assess whether or not it’s salvageable and then perform the most appropriate and safest cleaning, repair, and sanitation of the material to return it to pre-loss condition.

Suffering smoke or water damage can be a traumatic experience, but Embassy Cleaners is here to help restore your furnishings and your life so you can move forward and start fresh.
