Pale smoke floating against a black background What would you guess this type of smoke is? SERVPRO of West Amarillo has the answer! 806-351-4555

Smoke and soot are invasive and can penetrate cavities within a structure, leaving odor and hidden damage. Our expertise and experience with smoke damage allows us to accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.


Smoke and soot facts
     • Smoke will migrate to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
     • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
     • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.


Types of Smoke
There are different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of West Amarillo Professionals will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will be based on the information identified during pretesting.


     Wet Smoke: Plastic and Rubber--Low heat,           smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary.             Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.


     Dry Smoke: Paper and Wood--Fast burning,         high temperatures, heat rises therefore               smoke rises.


 Protein Fire Residue: Produced by                      evaporation of material rather than from a            fire--Virtually invisible, discolors paints and          varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
