Fire Damage Lafayette Occupants, House Fires, and the Benefit of SERVPRO's IAQ Service SERVPRO Says: Smoke Alarms Can Save Lives in Lafayette

Air Quality Improvements After a Fire in Your Lafayette Home

After an emergency in your Lafayette home, you might not be able to immediately return to assess damages on your own for the possibility of hazardous conditions like poor air quality. Even though the fire has gotten extinguished, the lingering effects could potentially threaten those without the appropriate training and personal protective equipment. Our team of professionals can arrive quickly to help address these concerns and help mitigate other losses in your home as well.

Airborne hazards and fire odor control are chief concerns for both Lafayette homeowners and our SERVPRO professionals that arrive at the scene shortly after the first responders leave. While much of this preliminary stage is assessing the full scope of the damage to sate the needs of the insurance provider that offers coverage for your home, we can also begin the steps necessary to overcome potentially hazardous conditions, noxious odors, and debris or particulates circulating in the environment.

Cleaning up the atmosphere throughout the fire-damaged house, improving indoor air quality, requires several pieces of equipment strategically placed throughout the property. Our air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators can both get used in this situation, as they both trap particulates, debris, and smoke residue as small as 0.3 microns. The longer these machines run, the cleaner the air within the home becomes.

Overcoming lingering foul odors from the fire is another concern for our SERVPRO professionals because it can make restoration work challenging for our technicians and others that could be in the house throughout this process. Often the best approach to permanently eliminating or substantially reducing odors present after a fire is with the use of our thermal foggers. These machines release a dense chemical compound that neutralizes foul odor molecules on contact.

While odors and environmental hazards might not be as blatant to see as severe structural concerns, they are a point to get addressed as promptly as possible. Our SERVPRO of Lafayette fire restoration specialists have the tools and expertise to overcome all hurdles we encounter in returning your property to pre-fire condition. Give us a call today at (337) 269-6332.
