Mattresses and box springs with light smoke damage often respond well to the foam cleaning agents used by the techs, which saves homeowners the cost of replacement as long as the wood furnishings in the room do not have joint damage from heat or water. They can often get cleaned through the use of wood soaps and cleaners to lift off smoke residues. In some cases, the piece may require refinishing.

Bedding and window treatments fabrics that can handle contact with water without bleeding or shrinkage are often candidates for restoration through the use of the Esporta Washing System. This powerful machine drives out soot, smoke odors and leaves fabrics clean and renewed. Carpets that do not show signs of burn makes or fiber damage can get cleaned using the steam cleaners the techs have access to.
