Another issue that comes up alongside fire damage is smoke damage. There are multiple different types of smoke damage that each need to be treated differently;
- Wet smoke residues result from smoldering fires with low heat. These residues are sticky, smeary and have pungent odors. Smoke webs from wet smoke can be difficult to clean.
- Dry smoke residues result from fast burning fires at high temperatures. These residues are often dry, powdery and small with nonsmeary smoke particles.
- Protein residues are virtually invisible and have an extremely pungent odor. These residues discolor paints and varnishes.
- Fuel oil soot result from furnace puff backs that distribute fuel oil soot
