Types of smoke damage

Smoke is simply particles that are lifted into the air from a burning substance, which means that all smoke is composed of different particles depending on what is burning. So, depending on what is burning, the smoke can act in different ways and require different methods to clean. In the restoration industry we have narrowed smoke down into a few categories with the major categories being ‘dry smoke’ and ‘wet smoke’.

Dry smoke is easiest to clean, and is caused by hot, fast-burning fires involving organic materials like wood or paper and will leave behind a powdery, dry residue, and a difficult to remove odor. 

Wet smoke is the result of slow burning fires that are usually caused by burning synthetic materials like plastic. This smoke is the most difficult to clean and requires professional grade deodorization equipment.
