What Are Soot Webs After Smoke and Fire Damage?

Property damage from soot and smoke is still a real problem after fire damage and can be challenging for even the best restoration companies to fully clean and remediate. Heavy smoke can gradually accumulate in corners until dense smoke and soot causes staining or web like formations.

What Are Soot Webs?

Believe it or not, what are you seeing in these pictures are NOT soot stained spider webs or cobwebs. These bizarre looking "soot webs" can suddenly appear after a fire. The soot webs are formed as the fire consumes oxygen and airborne soot particles begin to bond together. These floating soot strands or webs will rise with heat and cling together in corners, in HVAC systems, between joist and on light fixtures.

Smoke Damage and Soot Cleanup Near You

If you need smoke or soot cleanup in your home, we will first need to identify the cause of fire damage and figure out how to efficiently clean the soot. All of the wood, drywall, contents and other items that burn or smolder during a house fire can generate soot that may end up settling on all surfaces throughout a house - even if a small fire only occurred in one room. Smoke and soot can make it's way into HVAC systems, wall cavities and attic spaces as heat rises and the home becomes pressurized during the fire.
