An Ultrasonic cleaning machine. An ultrasonic cleaning machine is "the" ultimate tool for cleaning soot-damaged contents after a fire.

Advanced Technology for Fire and Smoke Remediation

Cleaning soot and smoke residue after a fire requires special chemicals and advanced technology. That is because the soot composition may contain oils, acids, and other harsh particulates that bond to surfaces. SERVPRO of Yuma has invested in the technology required to clean up a soot and smoke-contaminated environment. The following is a list of the many 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 providing excellent service.

  • HEPA Vacuums

These special vacuums 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 sucks air into primary and secondary filters through HEPA filters and then exhausts clean air back into the room. Our devices 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, which changes its composition and 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 adaptation of an Ozone machine can be safely used in rooms where people work or are present. This air cleaning technology is used in the International Space Station and Submarines. 

  • Esporta Laundry Systems

The Esporta industrial-grade laundry machine was invented in Canada to clean hockey uniforms and firefighter jackets. The Esporta system can handle the most challenging cleaning assignment, such as soot, yet it’s designed not to rub and wear fibers, which is ideal for more delicate fabrics.

  • Ultrasonic Content Cleaning Machines (Pictured)

When a fire spreads smoke throughout an interior environment, the contents often become covered and saturated with a dark black film of soot. An ultrasonic washing system removes the smokey film far more thoroughly than can cleaning by hand. There is no better or faster way to clean objects that can be immersed in a wet solution.

SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills is dedicated to using the best technology to produce quality results that meet our customer’s needs.
