Four Types of Smoke Damage

There are four possible types of smoke damage that may result after a fire. A number of variables create different types of smoke damage, including the fire temperature, fuel materials, and where the fire burned. The ability to recognize various types of smoke damage is essential, as quality restoration depends upon this facet. Fortunately, Seaside Restoration’s smoke damage cleanup team is trained and comfortable determining and restoring all types of smoke damage. The four types of smoke damage include: 

Smoke Cleanup Company

Dry Smoke

Quick-burning, high-temperature fires fueled by paper or wood cause dry smoke. While easier to clean than others and less pungent, dry smoke falls into cracks and permeates porous materials. As a result, the smoke odor may linger despite the clean appearance of your home.

Fire Damage Restoration

Petroleum Residue

Petroleum residue, or fuel/oil residue, is not commonly seen in home and business fires. However, fuel/oil residue may result from a flawed furnace. If a furnace ignites incorrectly, it creates a “puffback," unleashing smoke and soot in a leak or small explosion. The sticky texture and unpleasant odor necessitate professional help.

Fire Damage Restoration

Wet Smoke

Low-heat, smoldering fires fueled by plastic or rubber cause wet smoke. These blazes generate less flames but more thick, black smoke that is dense and smelly. The residue left by wet smoke is sticky and smears when wiped. Special equipment is needed to effectively clean wet smoke.

Smoke Cleanup

Protein Residue

Low-heat fires in which organic materials evaporate, such as a kitchen blaze, cause protein residue. While nearly invisible with no soot or streaks, protein residue creates discoloration on finished surfaces. Of the types of smoke damage, protein residue's aroma is especially foul and will need to be professionally treated.

Smoke Soot Cleaning Clears the Mess

The burning of wood, plastic, fibers, foam, plaster, and other materials creates a black residue on walls, ceilings, and other hard surfaces known as soot. After a fire you may want to lower costs with DIY smoke soot cleaning, but this is unwise. You need a smoke damage restoration company you can trust. Seaside Restoration is here for you 24/7.
