Types of Smoke Residue

To effectively and accurately clean any residue, we need to know what type of fire and what kind of smoke occurred. We determine this with a preliminary inspection, which happens at the beginning of all cleanup jobs. Through our inspection, we’ll be able to determine if it was:

  • Dry Smoke Residue: This is the product of a high-oxygen, fast burning fire, indicated by a dry, powdery residue.
  • Wet Smoke Residue: A greasy, sticky residue that is produced by a low-oxygen, low heat fire. This residue can discolor and corrode metals.
  • Protein Residue: Considered pretty much invisible, the way to detect this residue is to look for discolored paints and varnishes. It also has an extremely pungent smell.
  • Petroleum (Fuel Oil) Residue: Often referred to as “puff back”, this is just fuel oil soot. The residue is sticky and tough to clean without proper tools.
  • Fire Extinguisher Residue: The foam is designed to stick around to extinguish fires, which means that it is difficult to remove once the fire is out.

Knowing what kind of fire and smoke help our team determine the best way to remove the residue. Every situation is different, so we want to be sure that we are providing the best possible solution. Our team used the industry-standard methods to effectively remove all indicators of residue. We take care to thoroughly and completely restore your home or office to its original condition.
