SERVPRO® Cleanup & Restoration: Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

Behavior of Smoke:

A fire loss can result in complex damages because of the unique behavior of smoke. A trained professional should survey the loss site to determine the extent to which fire, smoke, heat, and moisture impacted building materials and contents.

Experienced fire restoration professionals know that smoke can penetrate within cavities of the structure, causing hidden damage and odor. Their knowledge of building systems helps them investigate how far smoke damage may have spread.

Heat will Escape: Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

Heat Rises: Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.

Different Types of Smoke:

The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

  • Wet Smoke (Plastic and Rubbery) – Low heat, smoldering pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke (Paper and Wood) – Fast burning, high-temperature, heat rises therefore this smoke can rise faster.
  • Protein Fire Residue (Food/Meats) – Produced by evaporations of materials rather than from fire. Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
