Facts About Smoke

A fire loss can result in complex damages because of the unique behavior of smoke. ProJan surveys the loss site to determine the extent to which fire, smoke, heat, and moisture impacted building materials and contents. Smoke can penetrate within cavities of the structure, causing hidden damage and odor. Our knowledge of building systems helps us investigate how far smoke damage may have spread.

Some things you may not know about smoke:
