Soot Webs

5/22/2019 (Permalink)

This is a soot web caused by a kitchen fire.

Many times we walk into a customer’s home to assess the extent of the damage in their home after a fire loss. They begin to assure us that their home has “never been this dirty.” In most cases after a fire has occurred, customers notice “dirty cobwebs” throughout their home. However, they aren’t indicative of your cleaning skills. They are actually due to the fire!

These “dirty cobwebs” are called soot webs. Soot webs are formed when smoke from rubber or plastics may have ionized the soot particles that then bind together to form what looks like cobwebs.

If you do have soot webs in your home, do not try to clean them yourself! Any time you try to clean soot without the proper chemicals, tools and experience, you’ll likely cause further damage in your home.

If you have soot webs, call the SERVPRO of Beaumont at (409) 212-1977!
