We Follow The Proper Steps To Ensure St. Petersburg Fire Damage Is Restored Efficiently
The Sometimes Overlooked Step in St. Petersburg Fire Damage Cleanup
No two ways about it, fire damage, even a small scale one, is distressing. In cases where it was extinguished quickly without much charring or debris, still has the potential to leave behind pungent smoke odors.
When SERVPRO of St. Petersburg answers a call for fire damage cleanup in a home, we thoroughly address the issues, so there are no reminders left over from the fire after the completion of mitigation efforts. Our initial fire cleanup includes the removal of charred debris, containment of the fire loss area to limit the spread of soot and a piece by piece inspection of possessions affected by smoke damage for restorability potential.
Air scrubbers are vital pieces of equipment during fire damage mitigation. These powerful units have a honeycomb of filtration and have the capability of capturing airborne soot particles smaller than the human eye can see.
One mistake often made is the running of the HVAC in the property after a fire. This single action can spread soot throughout the home, and wherever those particles go, odors follow. SERVPRO technicians follow a detailed series of steps to thoroughly clean soot from ductwork, so the house does not carry lingering reminders of the loss.
Standard ductwork cleaning methods include:
- Inspection of the ductwork
Cleaning of the return and vent covers
- Vacuum cleaning of the clean air handling unit
- Negative air pressure system used to pull particles from the ductwork
Clean all ducting from vent openings
Once SERVPRO technicians finish with the ductwork, we apply other odor control measures as needed in the fire-damaged areas. Standard equipment our team members rely on for odor eradication are thermal fogging units and hydroxyl generators, both neutralize the pungent scent of smoke.
