As fire consumes wood, textiles, synthetic material, and plastics, it creates thick plumes of smoke that spread throughout the burning structure. Smoke is a by-product of incomplete combustion and it carries gaseous chemicals as well as particulate matter (soot). As the smoke travels through your home, the chemicals and soot it carries cling to walls, floors, ceilings, clothes, furniture, and appliances. Even after cleaning up with traditional materials, unseen traces of smoke stay locked deep in tiny crevices and fibers it contacts.
Smoke is usually caustic in nature. Little by little, its residue can eat away at the surfaces where it landed. It can also be toxic and irritating, which makes it a threat to humans and pets who move back into a building after a fire.
Below is a list of damages caused by smoke and soot after a fire:
Soot is a fine powder carbon residue that is sticky and can easily stain carpets, furniture, and other household items. Beyond cosmetic damages to personal belongings, soot inhalation is potentially very dangerous and can cause severe respiratory issues.
