SERVPRO Fire Restoration Technicians Can Return your North Syracuse Property to a Safe and Secure Condition

Particulate contamination is one of the adverse effects of a recent property fire. Particulates, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), describe the microscopic toxins, dust, and soot released from burning materials. With many common household materials having increasingly complex ingredients, the risk of particulate contamination is higher. Natural, organic material such as cotton, for example, leaves behind a relatively low-impact carbon dry soot. Polyester, one of the more commonly used materials for home draperies or fabrics, is built from a synthetic polymer and can release toxic particulates or VOCs into the indoor environment. SERVPRO can help with:

  • Fire damaged homes
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup

Conducting fire restoration in North Syracuse is a process of returning the home to a safe condition as it was before the fire. Managing particulate contamination is an essential part of this process. High pressure in a fire can lead to particulates bonding with or absorbing into clothing, draperies, fabrics, and mattresses. We have several methods that can help to decontaminate these materials before returning them to your home smoke, odor, and particulate-free. 

  • Exposure to ozone gases can break down organic and volatile compounds quickly through the process of oxidization. This technique is very useful for deep sanitizing clothing or fabrics exposed to fire gases. 
  • Professional-grade dry cleaning can help restore expensive natural fabrics, often employing solvents to break down or pair with particulates. 
  • Mechanical cleaning uses Esporta washing machines to suspend fabrics, while rotary jets apply natural wet cleaning to the fabric's surface. Automatic cleaning is capable of removing 99% of contaminants from cloth. 

Tackling fire impact can be tough without access to professional-grade equipment and products. Contact SERVPRO of North Onondaga County for fire restoration at (315) 457-3432.
