Our Cleanup Process
Containment: Before starting fire damage clean up, our team creates a containment zone to impede the spread of smoke and soot residues to other parts of your home. Negative air pressure is maintained in the containment zone to make sure that smoke odors and residues do not travel to unaffected locations.
Ventilation: We also ensure that there is adequate ventilation at the location where cleaning is being performed. Our experienced technicians also make sure that weather conditions are suitable for the creation of such ventilation.
Our team understands that humid weather conditions will prove to be counterproductive. Additional humidity will usually mix with the smoke present in your home or commercial establishment and result in the development of acid residues.
Cleaning: Cleaning procedures, equipment, and solutions are selected carefully after analyzing the type and extent of damage the fire has caused. For instance, our team checks whether it was a high-oxygen or low-oxygen fire so that the right cleaning solution will be used.
We also ensure that the cleaning solution is given the required dwell time to work effectively. Cleaning also involves the use of different equipment to get rid of the smoke particles present in a room. For example, HEPA vacuuming helps in capturing small smoke particles from different surfaces.
Odor Control: Our experts make use of different methods while carrying out smoke odor removal. One such technique is the use of hydroxyl ion generators that help to effectively get rid of these odors and other volatile organic compounds by using the oxidation process.
Additionally, our team makes use of different types of sealers as part of odor control so that smoke odors do not remind you of that devastating incidence. Common sealers utilized include Shellac, which cures at low temperatures such as 10°F, and water-based sealers that offer excellent permeability and facilitate water vapor transference.

Our team judiciously selects a cleaning procedure based on the type of incident they are tasked with cleaning and restoring and the extent of damage that has occurred. As such, different techniques are used for cleaning different situations, ranging from structural elements to upholstery and carpets.
We also understand that mold problems may occur if the water used to douse the fire is not dried quickly, obstructing relative humidity from returning to its required mark. Thus, apart from restoring fire-damaged objects, we also take the necessary steps to remove water from water-absorbed objects and ensure that there are no hidden pockets where moisture is present, which may facilitate mold growth after restoration work is completed.
