Don’t wait: time is of the essence

Smoke residues are acidic in nature and with time can causepermanent corrosion and staining. High heat can also pressurize smoke which allows it to permeate cracks and crevices and deposit odor-causing residues in all types of building materials, electronics, and other belongings. There are several different types of smoke residues present after a fire, including:

  • Wet Smoke Residues: result from low-heat, smoldering fires. Wet smoke residues are often sticky, smear easily, and have pungent odors.
  • Dry Smoke Residues:  Often associated with fast burning, high-temperature fires. Dry smoke residues are typically dry, powder-like particles.
  • Protein Residues: These types of residues have an extremely pungent odor, are virtually invisible, and often responsible for the discoloration of paints and varnishes.
  • Additional Residues: Fire extinguishing chemicals, fingerprint powder, tear gas and other chemicals can also leave residues that must be cleaned up in order to restore a healthy, clean environment.
