Soot & Smoke Damage

In fires which contain materials such as wood, paper, and plastics burn. You will have a dark, sooty smoke that often leaves a thick film of soot behind. It might be dry, oily, or wet, depending on the temperature of the fire and what materials were involved.

A protein fire, burns at a much lower temperature and produces a clear, fine mist. After the fire is put out, there might not be any visible soot at all. However, it still needs to be cleaned carefully. The burning protein and fat creates a colorless thin film that can spread throughout the area.

The Odor Won't Go Away!

The biggest problems with a protein fire is the smell. The tiniest amount of burned protein can leave an unpleasant smell lingering for days.
