What Does Smoke Damage Look Like?

Smoke damage is not always immediately evident, and its appearance can vary based on the type of smoke and the materials burned during a fire.

Understanding the different forms of smoke damage is essential for effective remediation.

Here’s what smoke damage may look like:

Wet Smoke Damage

  • Appearance: This type of damage is characterised by a potent, pungent odour and a sticky, heavy coating on surfaces.
  • Causes: Wet smoke damage results from fires burning at lower temperatures but producing substantial smoke. It typically contains a high level of moisture.
  • Identification: Look for surfaces with a thick, oily residue. This can often be difficult to clean without professional assistance.

Protein Smoke Damage

  • Appearance: Protein smoke damage leaves behind a heavy, oily texture on surfaces.
  • Causes: This type of damage occurs when protein-enriched fibres, such as those found in meats, burn during a fire.
  • Identification: Surfaces may appear glossy or have a yellowish-brown discolouration, indicating protein residue.

Dry Smoke Damage

  • Appearance: Dry smoke damage results from fast-burning, high-temperature fires and is characterised by fine, powdery black soot.
  • Causes: These fires produce black smoke, and the residue is often dry and powdery.
  • Identification: Surfaces may be covered in a layer of fine, loose soot, which, if not handled carefully, can become airborne and spread.

The type of smoke damage you encounter will depend on various factors, including the fire’s temperature, the materials burned, and the duration of exposure.

It’s crucial to approach the cleanup and remediation of smoke damage with care, as improper cleaning methods can exacerbate the damage.

Vinci Response’s experienced technicians are well-equipped to identify and address these different forms of smoke damage effectively, ensuring the restoration of your property to its pre-damaged condition.

Vinci Response’s Smoke Damage Cleaning Process

At Vinci Response, our smoke damage cleaning process is meticulously designed to ensure the complete restoration of your property.

We employ a range of advanced techniques and industry-leading technology, combined with the expertise of our seasoned technicians, to bring your property back to its pre-smoke damage condition.

Assessment and Cleanup Planning

Our process begins with a thorough assessment of your property. Our technicians meticulously examine the extent of the smoke damage, identifying key areas requiring immediate attention. We take note of any items that may need removal, such as damaged appliances or furniture. This initial assessment guides our cleanup plan, ensuring a targeted and effective remediation process.

Initiating cleanup

Once the assessment is complete, our skilled team commences the cleanup process. While it can be disheartening to witness the extent of smoke damage, it’s a crucial step in salvaging belongings and preventing further deterioration. Clearing out debris is essential to prevent the spread of soot and smoke particles throughout your property.

Identifying Hidden Smoke Damage

Smoke has a knack for infiltrating even the most concealed spaces within your property. Our specialists are trained to detect hidden smoke damage that requires restoration and cleaning services. This proactive approach prevents future damage and ensures the highest standards of cleanup.

Smoke Damage Restoration

With the initial steps completed, the actual smoke damage cleaning and restoration process can begin. We employ specialised equipment along with the following:

  • Nitrile gloves and eye protection for safety
  • Chemical sponges
  • Water source
  • Various chemicals to nutralise and remove smoke residues.
  • Degreaser/Alkalines
  • Cloths

Given the hazardous nature of smoke and soot damage, personal protective equipment is a priority during this phase.

Our team begins by vacuuming floors to remove soot and smoke particles. Walls and ceilings are meticulously washed and scrubbed to eliminate black soot and smoke damage from the property’s structure.

We identify areas that may require repainting or resealing, ensuring a comprehensive restoration process.

Smoke Damage Cleaning FAQs

Sadly, smoke damage can cause odours long after remediation. However, Vinci Response will ensure that any and all affected areas of the home or commercial property are correctly restored to help avoid long-lasting smells.

We strongly discourage untrained individuals from attempting to clean smoke damage. While minor smoke damage may be addressed with household products, professional smoke damage cleaning is best left to experts. Improper cleaning can lead to further smudging and damage to walls, wallpaper, carpeting, and other surfaces.

This does depend on the extent of smoke damage to a property. Our technicians use protective gear, including specialised clothing, boots and respirators, to ensure their safety while the job is completed. They will be able to advise whether you can stay on-site or not.
