Should I Start Fire Residue Cleanup Before the Professionals Arrive?
Protection of Your Family from the Hazards in Soot and Smoke Is Why SERVPRO Commits to Handle Your Call for Fire Damage Recovery in Nutley
Homeowners understandably try to organize some of the chaos after a house fire even before restoration experts arrive. Before you wade in to clean, be aware that as the fire consumed structural components and contents within your home, a chain of chemical reactions occurred. Spurred by the heat and flames, wood products, foams, plastics, rubber, textiles, and other fuels create a broad range of toxic substances. Toxins not contained or managed appropriately can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin, exposing you and your loved ones to potential health consequences.
What Can a Reputable Disaster Recovery Company Do to Minimize the Hazards During Fire Damage Mitigation and Remediation?
Look for a Nutley fire damage company that promises a well-qualified and equipped workforce. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) trains our managers and technicians in industry safety, cleaning, and odor eliminating best practices, why we can deliver a cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized home back to residents safely and fast. We control the hazards mainly through containment techniques.
Why Do We Contain Affected Spaces?
The foundation of professional restoration services requires putting safety first, why SERVPRO stresses effective containment strategies for two primary reasons:
- For the protection of occupants who might be residing in non-damaged spaces in the home
- To control the drift of toxic, abrasive, and corrosive residues, including removing quantities of airborne smoke and soot as a jumpstart to cleaning and deodorization
How Do We Contain the Hazards?
- By building containment spaces around the damage out of 1.6 mil polyethylene, sealed with negative pressure air scrubbers
- By outfitting our crews in appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
