Soot
Survey

Fire and soot damage can persist throughout an affected building, even in areas seemingly untouched by the flames or smoke. Smoke carries a hazardous mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and soot, which can inflict lasting harm on the respiratory system. Structures ravaged by fire typically leave behind soot, comprising black or gray particles resulting from incomplete combustion. Inhaling these soot particles can infiltrate the lungs and bloodstream, potentially leading to serious health issues, including coronary heart disease, cancer, asthma, bronchitis, etc.

Moreover, when fires are extinguished with water, the consequences can be profound. Water damage not only promotes the growth of mold but may also dislodge asbestos fibers, increasing exposure to these indoor air pollutants.

At BNF Consulting, we offer comprehensive services aimed at restoring and enhancing indoor air quality in fire and soot-damaged structures. Our services encompass total volatile organic compound (TVOC) testing, smoke odor sampling, soot analysis, and formaldehyde air and bulk testing. These assessments enable us to provide valuable insights and recommendations for effective remediation.

Fire and soot testing plays a pivotal role in assessing the presence and concentration of soot particles within the environment, ensuring that exposure levels remain within acceptable limits. Given that soot particles can easily go unnoticed in various areas they disperse to, it is imperative to conduct thorough testing in affected spaces to identify and address indoor air pollutants resulting from fire and soot damage, ultimately facilitating the proper restoration of the structure.
