What Are the Benefits When Water and Fire Damage Restoration Companies Invest in High-End Equipment and Updates?
SERVPRO managers and technicians rely heavily on research-based fire damage restoration training. However, implementing best practices while delivering water, fire, and smoke damage mitigation and remediation tactics depends on effective and superior quality fire damage recovery equipment, tools, and products.
- Air Quality
The smoke filling a home or business during and after fire damage is removed using a range of air-moving devices to exhaust the smoke. Negative pressure air scrubbing technology often uses suction to trap soot particles within HEPA filters before venting to the outside.
- Water Removal
The quantity of water used to extinguish a fire can be substantial, and SERVPRO has the submersible pumps, portable and truck-mounted extractors, and other tools to remove it. Fire damage debris contaminates the fluids, so our trained crews contain the watery residues for lawful disposal.
- Fire Residue Removal
The heat and flames that create fire damage combust building materials and contents, creating a variety of soots that soil surfaces depending on the fuel. SERVPRO’s IICRC-trained technicians match the soots to appropriate cleaning products and the tools that facilitate the fire damage removal. The four elements of cleaning mastered by technicians using the equipment include:
- Chemical action--the composition of the cleaner helps dissolve or emulsify the fire damage residues.
- Agitation--scrubbing with tools fashioned with gentle to heavily abrasive features (feather dusters to steel wool or ridged scrapers) to loosen adhered soils.
- Temperature--heat raised judiciously increases the speed of chemical actions.
- Time--referred to as “dwell time,” permits cleaning solutions to soak into the soiling to release the bond between the affected surface and the fire damage.
