Smoke and Odor

A fire loss is not just the physical destruction of combustible materials, but there are those unseen damages that are the side effects of this type of damage.

Let’s take a look at the type of losses

Dry smoke- is a result of a fast burn at a high temperature. Odors and soot should be properly remedied.

Wet Smoke- this type of damage is caused by a low heat fire where there are numerous areas of smoldering. This smoke leaves a wet sticky substance that should be remedied by a professional fire restorer. The smoke webs created by wet smoke are difficult to clean and easily smear if not treated correctly. Do not attempt to restore an area affected by this type of smoke damage without consulting a professional fire and smoke restoration service.

Protein- Smoke damage as a result of an extreme burn of a game animal or other protein enriched fiber. Extremely pungent odor that is virtually invisible, but does a number of damages to varnishes and paints. Protein fire damage should be professionally handled by a smoke and fire restorer.

The behavior of smoke is exclusive to the type of re and building that has been affected. The nature of smoke is to migrate to areas of a building that may have not been directly impacted by a flame, therefore knowing the exact type of fire and smoke is essential to a proper restoration.  Smoke damage repair requires an experienced professional fire and smoke restoration service to effectively repair any smoke related damages.
