Smoke Odors From a House Fire on Furniture

We have a couch and 2 chairs that went through a house fire. We shampooed them, but the smoke smell is coming back out. How do I deodorize them?

After a recent house fire, a family member found all the clothing and furniture worth salvaging reeked of smoke odor. This is much worse than cigarette odor, or stove fire odor and seems to creep out into a room. Does anyone have tips for removal of the odor, particularly from the wood furniture? Washing the clothing repeatedly has not worked, and even dry cleaning has not helped the bulkier items much. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Smoke Odors From a House Fire on Furniture

Contact your homeowners insurance company and find out if the company who did your repairs has the ability to remove smoke odors from fabric. There is a process that they use to deodorize furniture and upholstery that should work on clothing. This should be paid for if your insurance covered repairs and loss of property. (12/13/2006)
