Professional Fire and Smoke Cleanup Equipment
Advanced Technology for Fire and Smoke Remediation
Cleaning up soot and smoke residue after a fire often requires special cleaning chemicals and advanced technology. That because the composition of the soot may contain oils, acids, and other harsh particulates that bond to surfaces. SERVPRO of Yuma has invested in the technology required to cleanup a soot and smoke contaminated environment. The following is a list of the many of the types of equipment we own. This may be a rather technical article for residential consumers however, our insurance adjusters and facilities engineer clients appreciate this information. We are presenting this material to demonstrate our commitment to provide excellent service.
- HEPPA Vacuums
These are special vacuums that remove 99.9% of fine airborne particulates and are designed not to exhaust particles back into the air during vacuuming.
- HEPA Air Purification (air-scrubbers)
The portable filtration machine suck air into primary and secondary filters and through HEPA filters and then exhaust clean air back into the room. Our machines exchange 500 cubic feet of air or more per minute.
- Ozone Machines
The use of ozone has proven to be an effective deodorization tool for cleaning up fire/smoke, cooking odors, and trauma scenes. How does ozone destroy odors? Ozone reacts with odor molecules by transferring the “extra” oxygen atom of the ozone molecule in gas form to the odor molecule, and that changes its composition, so it no longer has the same chemical makeup. This chemical reaction is called oxidation and is used in various cleaning applications to kill odor.
- Hydroxyl Generator
This is an adaptation of an Ozone machine that can be safely used in rooms where people are working, or present. This air cleaning technology is used on the International Space Station and in Submarines.
- Esporta Laundry Systems
The Esporta industrial grade laundry machine was invented in Canada to clean hockey uniforms and firefighter’s jackets. The Esporta system can handle the toughest cleaning assignment such as soot, yet it’s designed not to abrade and wear fibers which makes ideal for more delicate fabrics too.
- Ultrasonic Content Cleaning Machines (Pictured)
When a fire happens and spreads smoke throughout an interior environment the contents often become covered and saturated with a dark black film of soot. An ultrasonic washing system cleans away the smokey film far more thoroughly than can cleaning by hand. For objects that can be immersed in a wet solution, there is no better or faster way to clean.
