Fires are devastating, know help is on its way, call the experts at SERVPRO today
Fires inside your home can be scary experiences. Although the flames themselves are usually under control relatively quickly, the feelings of panic and stress associated with them can last much longer. That is why removing the odor of smoke damage is not only vital to ensuring healthy indoor air quality but also in helping to alleviate painful reminders of the event. Responsible professionals can help you achieve this.
When we enter properties that have suffered from fire damage in Wanatah our immediate concern is safety. A brief but thorough visual inspection alongside a pre-test to establish what types of materials caught fire is essential. Only once we can assure the safety of your property can you return or contractors enter on the site.
SERVPRO use a vast array of methods and equipment to remove residual damages and restore your home. It is more than likely that we send an IICRC smoke odor control certificate holder to your property to help complete the job. These technicians are adept at removing odors with a range of equipment.
The most straightforward route to clean indoor air quality is usually the most effective. SERVPRO can deploy air scrubbers in the affected area. Air scrubbers use vacuum technology to pull contaminated air through a series of filters. We use HEPA filters which are fitted with charcoal and are capable of removing odor particles as small as 0.3 microns. Filtering air quality is far less harmful than releasing chemicals into your home environment and, where possible, is the method of choice for home fires.
In areas of the home that a busy or often occupied, we can deploy hydroxyl generators. Hydroxyls are naturally occurring molecules that remove odor from an outdoor environment. Hydroxyl generators create the same effect but for indoor properties passing odors through a series of filters and naturally removing them. The advantage of this technique is that it removes odor after fire damage without filling the home with chemicals that could be potentially harmful, especially for younger children.
