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.
