Why We Are The Right Choice In Coon Rapids Fire Damage Restoration
Proper Deodorization of a Fire Damage Site in Coon Rapids
The smell of fire damage is unmistakable. Even after cleaning the property, removing all burnt materials, and refinishing the charred surfaces, some smoky smell or another type of odor might persist depending on what the fire burns.
Sources of Odor
The reasons why properties may require thorough deodorization after fire damage incidents in Coon Rapids vary. In some cases, the odorous residues penetrate deep into construction materials and contents, therefore, continuing to emit odor even after restoration is deemed complete. Alternatively, some residues or aerosols might remain suspended in the air, causing the unpleasant odor. The FSRT, Fire, and Smoke Restoration Technicians in our team have the skills to identify the problem and determine the right response plan for your property.
In the case of aerosols and fine residues in the air, there is a need to circulate the air inside the building to remove them. Our SERVPRO technicians use AFD, air filtration devices with different types of filters to capture residues from the air. A typical system has three filters, including a primary filter to capture large debris, a pleated filter, and a HEPA filter to capture fine particles, removing 99.97% of particulate matter from the air. Sometimes, we also use axial fans to blow out the particulate-filled air from the house, allowing recirculation with fresh air from outside the building.
Cleaning the Air Conditioner
Sometimes the problem stems from the HVAC system where fire damage can deposit residues, especially if the system was on during the fire. When the system is operated after restoration, it reintroduces the residues into the indoor air leading to the unpleasant odor. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized duct cleaning equipment to remove residues from the HVAC system. We also change removable filters from the system.
