Type of Smoke Damage

8/24/2018 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can spread quickly throughout your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Alhambra will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Two things are for certain, is that hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure and that the smoke type can affect the restoration process.

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

· Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

· Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

· Discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
