Soot can be one of the hardest parts of fire restoration clean up and is developed through three different methods:
· Wet soot residue—results from smoldering, low-heat fires. This residue is sticky, smeary, and has a very pungent odor.
· Dry soot residue—results from fast-burning fires with high temperatures. This residue is typically dry, powdery, and non-smeary.
· Protein residue—almost invisible but can discolor paints and varnishes in your home. This residue also has an extremely pungent odor.
Each type of soot is different and requires specific expertise to clean for such needs or concerns.
