The structural damage from the fire itself is only half the battle. The other half is smoke damage. The smoke from a house fire permeates throughout the entire building. When combined with humidity, the smoke can form corrosive residues. This causes a lot of damage to surfaces inside your home that weren’t even in contact with the fire itself.
The damaging effects of soot can quickly become permanent if not taken care of. Soot is made of up tiny particles of material that were burned in the fire and are carried throughout your building during a fire.
Types of Soot:
This is a very fine soot that is usually caused by a very high temperature and fast burning fire. Fast and hot burning materials like wood and paper emit this dry soot. Easier to clean on smooth surfaces but can present a real challenge on porous materials.
Soot from a slower burning, lower heat fire. Having a higher moisture content, this soot has a much stronger odor and is very difficult to remove. Plastic materials and oils usually create this type of soot when burned.
Oil Based Soot
This type of soot comes from puff backs from your heating oil furnace. It’s oily nature makes it hard to clean.
Protein soot is actually light in color. This comes from food or other organic materials, usually in a kitchen fire. It can discolor paint but is difficult to see on its own.
