Important Smoke and Soot Facts

8/27/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke travels throughout the air Smoke travels throughout the air, into vents, and holes spreading room to room

A fire increases in size every 60 seconds. Fires happen quickly and spread quickly. The aftermath of a fire can be very invasive. While flames may be extinguished before reaching throughout your entire property, they come along with smoke and soot which can penetrate various cavities within your home. Smoke and can reach far beyond the flames, travel through plumbing systems, holes and vents, causing hidden damage and odor throughout your property. 

There are many different types of smoke. Therefore, there are also different types of soot residue. Therefore, the type of fire greatly affects the restoration process. 

Wet Smoke - Plastics and rubbers

• Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary with smoke webs that can be difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke - Paper and Wood

• Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises and so does the smoke

Protein Fire Residue

• Virtually invisible, discolors paint and varnishes, extreme pungent odor, and is usually a result of cooking
