Types of Smoke that can cause Damage
Did you know that there are four different types of smoke? Wet, Dry, Oily, and Protein
Wet smoke - Plastic and Rubber
- Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke - Paper and Wood
- Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Oily Smoke - Grease, Fuel Burning, and Burnt Plastics
- Easily smeared, resistant to wet cleaning
Protein Fire Residue - Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
- Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
