Soot damage is another common toxin that occurs after a fire, along with smoke damage. Soot can cause a monumental amount of problems, appearing as a black flaky, powdery substance, it forms through incomplete combustion; the microparticles within the soot will cling to surfaces such as ceilings, walls and all building contents.
Smoke can either free-float or be driven; driven smoke is pressurised, forced by energy generated by the fire, it tends to affect and cling to vertical surfaces such as walls, large cabinets, curtains, wardrobes etc. Once the air temperature has cooled, driven smoke gradually turns into a form of floating smoke, this type then begins to settle and fester into horizontal surfaces, such as tables, floors, chest of draws, furniture. Before you know it, the smoke toxins have covered every inch of your home, resulting in it being uninhabitable. No matter what form of smoke residue has affected your property, ICE cleaning is on hand with the leading industry tools and expert knowledge to remove all visible and hidden toxins along with the odour smoke will leave behind.
Any form of smoke and soot damage must be cleaned immediately and thoroughly, to prevent any form of secondary damage to your property. When smoke particles are left on surfaces, and the air has cooled, the toxins within the particles will begin to negatively react with the environment, especially when the air is moist, which will result in the partials becoming acidic. The now acidic particles will start to fester further into all surfaces it has come in contact with, slowly eroding the material away. Unprotected surfaces, mainly wood, will expand the most in the heat of the fire and allow the majority of smoke residues to fester, the longer the smoke and soot are present within the material the further the particles will deteriorate the wood, this could result in the object having to be thrown away if the acidic particles have festered for long enough.

There are two types of soot, dry and oily. There is a quick test that our technicians will run to determine what one is present to adjust the cleaning approach. Our technicians will run their finger around an affected surface, preferable a table or wall. If the soot is to smear, it means it is an oily based residue, if not, it is a dry based residue.
- Dry soot- Caused by scorching fires burning natural ingredients at an alarmingly fast rate. Dry soot is easier to control and clean, removing it can be as simple as vacuuming it up with a HEPA filter. This type of soot has a more visual appearance; it is a dusty texture with almost no form of smell. Although it is easy to rid the visual appearance, the toxins will be around.
- Oily soot- The hardest to eradicate, this type of soot will cling to absolutely every object present within the affected area. Oily soot occurs when rubber, plastic and other products containing oils are burnt. Oily soot is entirely resistant to water-based products.
