Identifying Types of Smoke

Yellow Van Cleaning and Restoration steps in, takes charge, addresses your concerns and tests the smoke to see which of the following types of fire occurred.

  • Oxygen Starved (Wet Smoke) – Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. This can be more difficult to clean.
  • Oxygen Rich (Dry Smoke) – Fast burning at high temperatures.
  • Protein – Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes. Extreme pungent odor.
  • Fuel Oil Soot – Furnace puff backs cause fuel oil soot.
  • Plastic or Rubber – Burn at low temperatures. Tends to create smoke tags (also known as smoke webs).
  • Other Types – Tear gas, fingerprint powder, and fire extinguisher residue are other types.
  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows through plumbing systems, using holes around pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • Depending on the type of smoke, it will greatly affect the restoration process.

Pre-testing Your Property

After Yellow Van Cleaning & Restoration knows the type of smoke, the next step in evaluating the damage to the property is pretesting to determine:

  • What can be restored and what must be replaced.
  • The most effective cleaning method.
  • Evaluate the condition of the property before the damage occurred.
  • The cost to restore, repair, or replace the property to a pre-loss condition.
