Fire and smoke

  • We are trained and certified through IICRC in fire and smoke remediation.
  • Fire is the result of the rapid combustion reaction of fuel, oxygen and heat.
  • Smoke, soot particles and residue are the visual byproduct particles of incomplete combustion (PIC).
  • Hazardous respirable fine particulate matter (PM) invisible to the naked eye is produced.
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are commonly produced during and following a fire. These VOCs and soot have been reported to be carcinogenic.
  • We utilize HEPA vacuuming and filtration to filter 99.97% of particulates down to 0.3 microns in diameter. We deploy air filtration devices with active carbon and UV-C technology.
  • We apply loss mitigation procedures and do durable board-ups for roofs, windows and doors openings.
  • We apply People and Planet friendly cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing solutions. We start odor control where fire began to attack most odor. Testing starts in areas farthest from source area.
  • Odor control is a high priority in fire and smoke losses. We remove the source, clean the source area, penetrate the affected material and seal surfaces.
  • Emergency pack-out is performed to get at-risk items out fast.
