Like the other byproducts that accompany serious fire damage, smoke damage and smoky shadows can remain long after the actual fire has been quenched. It may even extend to rooms where the fire never spread simply because of the amount of smoke involved. Thanks to its highly mobile nature, smoke can reach corners, nooks, crannies, and beyond while leaving smudgy traces of its path behind.
Smoke is comprised of a wide variety of materials produced by the chemical reactions that occur during a fire damage event. Some of the ingredients that make up smoke are consistent in that it always contains solid and liquid components. Because of this, whatever materials that exist within the smoke can saturate a wide variety of surfaces with minimal contact. The liquid aspects act as a vehicle for the solids, and together they can leave stubborn, dusky stains on everything it touches.
Once smoke damage sets in it can be extremely difficult to remove without proper fire damage restoration professionals on hand.
