When dealing with cleanup after a fire, a significant component we deal with is smoke. As materials burn and decompose, they give off solid particles, aerosols, and gases which become suspended in the air. These suspended materials are smoke.
The invisible components of smoke are gases. Burning organic compounds make oxides of nitrogen and sulfur dioxide. Besides fire gases, smoke consists of fine particles of matter and aerosols as well. The particles are what makes smoke visible, and they also absorb odors, making the soot smell.
Once smoke settles on surfaces, it is many times referred to as soot. These residues can have various kinds of acids since sulfides and chlorides in the smoke mix with the humidity in the air or with moisture to create acids. The acidic soot residues create discoloration and corrosion if they stay on materials for too long.
