Smoke damage may seem like the least of your worries following a fire related disaster, but the reality is that smoke damage is one of the most stubborn types of damage we come across. Attempting to clean it yourself will likely cause more damage and increase the cost of cleaning, while also being unlikely to be effective in deodorizing your property. When you need smoke damage cleaning, smoke soot cleanup, and smoke deodorization services in your home or business, give MD Restoration Specialists a call and trust that we'll restore your property to its pre-smoke damage condition.
Smoke is composed of millions of tiny burnt particles that are carried away in the hot air created by burning materials. These particles can be carried throughout your entire home or business property through your HVAC system by your ducting. These particles can penetrate into virtually any surface, and the odor will remain until you have the material professionally cleaned and deodorized. Smoke damage is often dependent on the types of smoke, the most common types of smoke damage include:
Dry smoke comes from high temperature fires, resulting in a fine, powder substance that can easily be cleaned from solid flat surfaces.
Wet smoke comes from low temperature fires, resulting in a thick and sticky smoke that has a pungent smell and is very difficult to clean.
Petroleum smoke comes from burning oil and any oil-based substances. This type of smoke is dark and can stain and permanently damage materials.
Protein smoke burning food or other compostable materials. This results in a smelly smoke that is very hard to see and difficult to find and completely clean.
