Smoke Webs

11/10/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke webs from a fire accumulated on the ceiling Smoke Webs form when the air flow in the fire slows down

Smoke webs can suddenly appear when you have a fire in your home.  The webs are formed as the fire consumes oxygen and airborne soot particles begin to bond together. The webs will rise with heat and cling together. They can be found on light fixtures, corners of the ceiling and anywhere where the air flow in the fire slows down.

Hot air from the fire rises and goes up to the ceiling and expands out when it gets to the corner of a wall.  When this happens, the soot goes down and links together like a magnet causing an entwined web.  Smoke and soot can also make its way into wall cavities and the attic.

The soot is formed from the burning of the structure material to the contents of your home. The particles from the burnt items can settle through- out the home.  SERVPRO of the Quad Cites is highly trained in Fire Restoration.  We have the necessary equipment and products to eliminate smoke damage.  Our team works to remove smoke webs and restore your home back to living conditions.  We specialize in contents cleaning for salvageable items and odor in your home from fires.  We offer move out and move back services while keeping your contents in our maintained warehouse.  Your items can be stored and cleaned giving you the peace of mind that they will be returned once your home is restored.
