The Four Types of Smoke Damage
Four common types of smoke damage result after a fire. Each is caused by differing variables including the fire temperature, fuel materials, and where the fire burned. Being able to recognize each of the various types of smoke damage is important as proper restoration depends upon this knowledge. Fortunately, Hawaii Disaster Restoration’s team of professional smoke damage cleanup technicians is familiar and comfortable identifying and restoring all types of smoke damage. The four types of smoke damage include:
Dry smoke arises from a quickly-burning, high-temperature fire fueled by wood or paper. Although dry smoke is fairly simple to clean, it can fall into crevices or permeate porous materials. This means that your house may appear clean while smoke odor lingers. The good news is that dry smoke is not as pungent as other residues.
When organic materials evaporate in a low-heat fire, such as that in a kitchen, it causes protein residue. Despite being nearly invisible without soot or streaks, protein residue discolors finished surfaces. Even though it may not appear noticeable, of the types of smoke damage, protein residue leaves an unpleasant aroma that will need to be professionally treated.
Wet smoke results from low-heat fires that smolder and are fueled by plastic and/or rubber. Fewer flames result from these fires, yet the thick, black smoke is much denser and smellier. Wet smoke residue is sticky and dense, smearing during cleaning. We bring in the special equipment needed to effectively clean wet smoke damage.
Petroleum residue is also known as fuel/oil residue. Although uncommonly seen in home and business fires, a faulty furnace causes fuel/oil residue. This occurs if the furnace does not ignite correctly, resulting in a “puffback” that unleashes smoke and soot through a leak or small explosion. Seek professional help for petroleum residue for the sticky texture and foul odor.
