Facts About Smoke

Smoke is often the longest of all lingering household odors. The smoke from a terrible fire or even the scent of cigarettes can stick to fabrics, carpeting, and walls, leaving a thin film and an odor that just doesn’t go away. It’s important to know different types of fires cause different types of smoke.

Four Common Types of Smoke Damage

  1. 1

    Dry smoke. High-temperature fires fueled by materials such as paper and wood create dry smoke.

  2. 2

    Protein residue. Organic materials evaporating in a low-heat fire cause protein residue smoke. Kitchen fires are one example.

  3. 3

    Fuel/oil residue. Petroleum products burning in a fire cause this type of smoke.

  4. 4

    Wet smoke. Low-heat fires that smolder (such as rubber and plastic) generate wet smoke.
