Let's talk about house fires..
The scope of a house fire can be overwhelming with the amount of damage that is the outcome. House fires can be intense for many homeowners. We always advise homeowners that they are better off staying elsewhere during the time their home gets restored. Not only is there odorous soot and debris that gets tracked through the house, but there is the potential for breathing in harmful air pollutants and smoke residue.
Many airborne soot particles can be invisible to us. A significant element of fire loss mitigation is the use of advanced equipment that helps to capture all particulates. Some of the methods that we use include actions like:
- Odor-control equipment that helps to neutralize odors from the fire
- Total removal and disposal of debris and charred items to cut back on odors
- Place our air scrubber technology, which helps to improve air quality while mitigation takes place
Prevent debris and grime from the rest of your interior to limit cross-contamination. It is vital to remove charred building materials and any non-salvageable items carefully and meticulously to prevent tracking. Our crew also wears personal protective equipment (PPE) and foot coverings to cut back on the amount of cross-contamination from one room to the next.
