The smoke and soot that remains after the fire has been put out could cause a bigger problem than the flames did. Smoke affects rooms that the fire never reached. The odor embeds in the walls and can travel through the spaces around pipes to spread odors. Chemically abrasive soot, if left for too long, will permanently destroy glass and other items. As soon as that ironic Yellow Van arrives, the team will begin the restoration process to reduce permanent damage and the overall cost of repairs.
With the most advanced equipment and technologies, many personal belongings can be cleaned, fully restored and free of contaminants and odors from smoke or chemicals. Modern fire restoration processes include thermal fogging, a chemical fog which penetrates your home and walls to neutralize the smoke odor. Yellow Van Cleaning & Restoration will remove smoke odor and soot from the indoor environment as well as valuable electronics, machinery, books, documents, and artwork.
During a fire, smoke can permeate walls and other surfaces and drift through household ducts, where it becomes trapped. If not properly removed, smoke odor reoccurs from time to time, especially during warm or damp weather and when the HVAC system restarts. Restorers can remove these particles from ducts. They may use a chemical sealer to secure smoke permanently to the sides of ducts since these areas may be difficult to clean with conventional vacuum-and-brush methods.
Some very toxic chemicals may be produced as a result of breakdown reactions from the various parts of construction materials, solvents, glues and other items in the structure. State-of-the-art technology is needed to detect and neutralize these chemicals as well as contain hazardous materials.
For example, until the ash and soot are cleaned and diluted by the environment, you are exposed to dangerous particles. Yellow Van’s indoor mechanical air filtration may help minimize the uncomfortable and potentially health-threatening impact of these pollutants.
