Equipment - Air Scrubbers
Do you ever wonder why Restoration Professionals use air scrubbers or negative air machines on a fire clean-up job?
These devices are utilized to clean the air from the odors and toxic gases that are left over after the fire has been extinguished. This creates a safe working environment for the work crews and also can prevent spreading damage to other structural building materials and to help limit contents from absorbing the odors.
This is achieved by changing over the air in the damaged structure at a minimum of three times per hour. We accomplish this by setting up the machines under positive air flow or negative air flow. Which type of air flow needed is determined by the severity of the fire. This ultimately helps our cleaning crews reduce or eliminate smoke or soot residue, ash particles and residues which are present after a fire.
