Types of Smoke Damage

There are different types of smoke damage.  We will access and determine which type or types your property has.  The three recognized categories of smoke damage are as follows:

  • Dry Smoke: Fast burning or high-temperature fires create dry smoke. This is one of the most common types of smoke damage.  Dry smoke is light and powdery.  Typically it is not difficult to clean.
  • Fuel Oil Smoke: As the name suggests, this type of smoke is the result of a fire burning due to a source of oil or fuel.  This smoke maintains a powerful odor and can render items in its proximity as permanently damaged.
  • Wet Smoke: Smoldering or low-temperature fires generate wet smoke. Although these type of fires generally has fewer flames, they produce much more smoke than high-temperature  Wet smoke is thick and very difficult to clean.
