Removing Soot And Smoke Particles From Your Covina Home During Fire Damage Restoration

No matter how small or huge a fire damage incident is, the smoke and soot that results can cause damage to your property. The various soot or smoke particles that need to be cleaned off your property are reliant on the type of substances that the fire consumed. Soot is usually produced when incomplete combustion takes place and depending on what the fire burned it can contain a mixture of dust, soils, metals, chemical and even acids. It is small in size and can float in the air and travel throughout your Covina property.

The smoke particles that a fire damage event produces in your Covina home can contain ash, oils, tar, carbon, and different kinds of chemicals. Our SERVPRO technicians perform appropriate cleaning and restoration procedures to prevent secondary damage. The soot and smoke particles which float in the air may lead to health effects, which is why our team uses appropriate personal protective equipment such as full face masks, goggles, gloves, and footwear when carrying out restoration procedures.

Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment to make work efficient. For instance, we can install dehumidifiers to address the moisture problem that results from the water that was used to extinguish the fire. We have the skills of determining what is salvageable and removing the unsalvageable items from the building. When we are removing smoke and soot particles from a carpet, we avoid impact when it is likely to embed the particles into the materials. For instance, we use HEPA vacuuming to lift the particles from the surface. For efficient results when we are using HEPA vacuums, we make sure there is a considerable distance between the nozzle and the surface.

Fire incidents are associated with odor problems. We have to identify and remove the odor-causing particles, or our SERVPRO technicians perform processes such as thermal fogging as a way of addressing the odor problem. Deodorants that have the abilities to neutralize the odors are emitted into specific areas.
