Understanding Smoke Behavior

Often, damage cause by smoke is just as destructive as the fire itself, which is why the complexity of the property loss depends on the unique behavior of smoke. Cleveland Water & Fire Restoration understands the extent to which fire, smoke, heat and moisture impacts building materials and the contents of the building.

Types of Smoke Damage

Smoke and soot can travel and penetrate into other rooms, impacting paint, carpet, drapes, upholstery, and other types items found in the room. There are two classifications for fire:

Simple fires: Fueled by “pure fuels” such as wood and generally result in complete combustion.

Complex fires: The most common house fires, complex fires are fueled by synthetic materials (ie. carpets, furniture, toys, wiring, etc) and often result in INCOMPLETE combustion.

Types of Smoke Residue

Once we are on scene, a Cleveland Water & Fire Restoration’s certified technician will test the soot to determine the the type of smoke damage that has occurred. The results of the test will determine the cleaning procedures we undertake.

Wet Smoke Residue: Smoldering fires with low heat result in wet smoke residue. This type of residue is sticky, smeary and has pungent odors.  

Dry smoke Residues: Fast burning fires at high temperatures produce dry smoke residue. Dry smoke residues are often dry, powdery, small, nonsmeary smoke particles.

Protein Residues: Usually invisible residues that can discolor paints and varnishes and have an extreme pungent odor.

Fuel Oil Soot – Furnace puff backs distribute fuel oil soot.

Other Types: Tear gas, fingerprint powder and fire extinguisher residues also need cleanup.

Cleveland Water & Fire Restoration has done a wonderful job restoring my home after a destructive electrical fire. We reached out to them in the aftermath of the fire, and immediately had a meeting scheduled with Zak, the owner of the company, and Petr, their restoration lead. During our initial meeting Zak and Petr made it very apparent that they are highly skilled in their work and were also extremely compassionate. We also appreciated their company model: having started as a construction company, we could hire them and work with a single company throughout the entire home restoration and rebuild process. Within a few hours of agreeing to work with Cleveland Water & Fire Restoration they had multiple crews at our home beginning work.

“These guys are AMAZING!!! When my house burned down. They really took care of me. They not only completed the restorations with great craft and expertise. But they turned the upstairs bedroom into a Master Suite!!!! with a complete walk-in closet and full bath. They were always ready and willing to explain everything to me in simple terms. If everyone worked this well…. the world would be a better place!!”
