Think all smoke and soot damage is created equal? Nope. Different kinds of smoke and soot damage can require variations in the cleaning process.
Dry Smoke: Fire that is fast burning and at a high temperature
Wet Smoke: Fire from that is smoldering and at a low-heat temperature; it has a pungent odor is sticky with a smeary texture
Protein Smoke: Discolors paints and varnishes; has an extreme pungent odor and is essentially invisible
Fuel Oil Smoke: Furnace smoke from duct returns in ventilation systems and causes a dangerous oily soot
Depending on the type of smoke and soot damage, we then begin to remove and clean the smoke and soot off all ceilings, walls, exposed beams and wood, floors, subfloors, and other surfaces. After we clean all surfaces, the deodorization process starts. Even when the area is clean and sanitized, it still holds an offending odor. These odors can only be removed with equipment specifically designed to remove all odor contaminants from the area, clean and filter, and then replace with clean air.
