Fire Damage Cleanup in Lower Providence Township
Professional Cleaning Equipment for Fire Damage
Most fires do not destroy a home. They do not even cause structural damage for the most part. The majority of the restoration costs to a homeowner normally come from the odors that burned material leaves behind in the air and on the structural and personal property.
Odors are the most lingering and hardest to remove part of fire damage to a home in the Lower Providence Township. It is more time-consuming and takes special skills and tools not normally found with a general contractor or other clean-up agencies. SERVPRO maintains an extensive inventory of cleaning equipment and a first-class training program with access to a nationwide network of both when needed. The following are just a sample of what we bring to every home:
Injectors – When it comes to small amounts of odor-causing stains on a piece of furniture or rug, technicians use these commercial grade pumps for the job. They use them with large needles to inject a deodorizing agent directly into the affected area. We prefer using this technique instead of sending a chair or sofa to be reupholstered.
Ozone Machines – Oxygen molecules are forced by this device to react with odor-causing molecules in the air. The action oxidizes the molecules, removing the odor. The process is extremely efficient in removing odors but requires our technicians to wear protective gear. It is dangerous to people, pets, and items containing natural rubber. Once we have finished, the ozone gas generated converts back to oxygen in a short time.
Pressure Sprayers – These devices spray deodorizing agents and other chemical cleaners at a rate of 50 psi. Our IICRC-certified technicians apply them directly on structural property, fabrics and most carpets that have heavy amounts of odor-causing smoke and soot residues.
Ventilation Fans – We start the process of removing odors with these. Depending on the size, the devices move up to 5000 cubic feet of air per minute. They serve a double purpose because in addition to removing odorous air, they also effectively ventilate a home and dry surfaces still damp from the water used to extinguish the fire.
Our goal with every house fire is to return your home to its preloss state. That includes making certain the air reminds everyone only of life before the disaster. At SERVPRO of Norristown, this is why we are in this business; to help our neighbors return to a safe, normal life as quickly as we can. For more information, call us at (610) 272-8520.
