Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Air Filtration

9/18/2017 (Permalink)

The goal of every restoration job is to safely and efficiently return the indoor environment to preloss condition for the customer. Part of this responsibility is to address the quality of the air inside the structure.

Any job that involves cleanup of sewage, mold, and/or fire damage will generate significant amounts of particulates and odiferous (smelly) gases. These contaminants are a direct result of the damage itself, as well as the necessary process of treating and cleaning damaged materials. This includes not only damage in the occupied space, but also contaminants in wall or ceiling cavities that may be disturbed and unknowingly introduced into the occupied space. These contaminants can settle on carpet, upholstery, furnishings, and be drawn into the HVAC system.

Because these particles can be easily stirred up and become airborne we usually employ the use of an air scrubber in some capacity.  In the simplest terms, an air scrubber is a portable filtration system. It draws in air from the surrounding environment and passes it through a series of filters. These filters efficiently remove particles from the air to help improve indoor air quality.
