Our Team Explains The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality Following A Fire In Your Covina Home
Air Purification Is Critical For Fire Damaged Covina Homes
After a damaging fire in your Covina home, there are threats present even in the atmosphere that a homeowner and their family need to monitor from a distance. Indoor air quality concerns can allow for respiratory concerns from lingering smoke, airborne debris and dust, and soot particles. Overcoming these effects is almost impossible for a homeowner to handle on their own, but our professional restoration team has equipment and expertise to remove this potential hazard.
When you consider all of the ways that fire damage in your Covina property can present itself, many homeowners might find themselves most concerned with structural elements and less about airborne threats. However, with the combustion of multiple materials including plastics, aerosols, chemicals and more commonly found in the average home, this environment could be dangerous to breath unfiltered. Our SERVPRO technicians have experience and training with the use of a full range of personal protective equipment from respirators to SCBA tanks for initial mitigation work when we first arrive at a fire-damaged property.
These threats only get more exasperated with the removal of debris and damaged components from the property in the earliest stages of restoration. Controlled demolition and cleanup by our SERVPRO specialists can circulate more smoke residue, debris, dust, and even harmful organic compounds present in the air to cause potential health risks to those exposed without breathing protection.
We set up and begin using hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers as soon as possible to begin filtering out harmful substances and particulates in the air. The HEPA filter installed in the machines can trap even microscopic debris, improving the air quality more and more the longer that these machines continue to run in the affected environments.
Air quality concerns often do not make the top of the priority list for those experiencing a structure fire that engulfs portions of their home. You can depend on our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina rapid response team to arrive quickly with the personnel and equipment to make a difference.
