Soot Webs Often Appear After Fires

Image shows soot webs on the ceiling Soot webs often appear after a fire and resemble dirty cobwebs, but are actually made of soot and oxygen bonded together.

After a fire, many people think that soot settles on cobwebs near the ceilings of your home and appear darker or full of dirt.  This is actually a misconception.  The “dirty cobwebs” you see are actually airborne soot particles and oxygen that bond together to create floating soot strands or webs that will rise with warm air and cling to corners, molding, light fixtures and HVAC systems.  They are called soot webs and are a clear indication that you have experienced fire damage in your home.
