Fire & Smoke Damage Facts
The three elements necessary for combustion are:
The size of particulate matter produced by fire is extremely small.
Particles range from 0.1 to 4 micrometers or microns in diameter. A micron is a small unit of measure and is invisible to the naked eye.
Both soot particles and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons have been reported to be carcinogenic.
This is why it is very important for all personnel at the fire damage site to wear properly fitted respirators with HEPA-rated filters capable of removing the VOCs- volatile organic compounds. Additionally HEPA air scrubbers with activated carbon filtration need to be placed within these spaces to reduce airborne contaminants.
There are generally three types of soot residues that are produced in a fire. They are as follows:
- Protein residues- results from overcooked or burned meat, fish or beans.
- Natural substance odor and residue- resulted from burned paper or wood.
- Synthetic residues –resulted where the burned material is oil based.
What influences smoke’s behavior?
- Combustion temperatures
- Air pressure changes
