Even Small Fires Can Leave Behind Traces of Smoke and Odor
Both small and large house fires leave behind significant damage, including:
- Fire damage
- Smoke damage
While fire damage, such as burn marks, holes, and burned appliances and surfaces, are often the first thing that comes to mind, we know that smoke damage and odors can be just as severe. It can leave behind permanent stains in curtains, carpeting, walls, and more. The smoke can also quickly spread throughout your home's ventilation system — even if the fire is quickly contained — which can exacerbate the damage.
House fires leave behind multiple different types of smoke damage and residue, including:
- Dry smoke residue, which is the powdery ash that high-temperature fires leave behind. This fine powder can be ground into fabric surfaces and leave your house smelling smoky for months or even years.
- Wet smoke residue, which is made in low-temperature fires. This pungent, sticky residue is difficult to remove and can start to smell even stronger if left untreated.
- Protein residue: Protein residue is particularly common in kitchen fires, where food and oils may be part of the blaze. This smoke residue is smelly and can go rancid over time. Kitchen fires are even more likely to cause significant smoke damage throughout your home.
- Fuel soot: If a fire involves your home's furnace or other appliances with a fuel source, it can give off fuel oil soot. Not only does it have an alarming smell, but the sooty stains are also easy to accidentally spread across surrounding surfaces.
With all of these potential sources of damage, it's important to start combating the presence and spread as soon as possible. When you choose Flood Response, that's exactly what we do.

Address the Invisible Damage Before It Sets In
House fires are scary, and the visible destruction to your home is stressful and distracting. That's why we offer comprehensive damage and odor removal as part of our fire damage restoration practices. We handle all of the details, even the ones you can't see, so your home feels safe when you walk back into it.
Smoke smells are more than just an unpleasant reminder. They can permanently damage the value of your home. They're also an indication that the fire residue wasn't completely cleaned up. Left unchecked, protein residue can grow more rancid and spread pathogens as the remaining organic particles turn. Fuel soot can spread stains and even act as fuel for another fire. We promise to never just sweep the damage under the rug — our priority is your long-term peace of mind, not short-term non-solutions.
