Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Featured Article By Kara Jovic
Health Concerns About Fire & Smoke Damage:
Anyone who has been evacuated from a fire-damaged area is anxious to get back to ordinary life as soon as possible. However, it is important to remember that fire may have affected air quality, water supply and food products. Smoke may cause distress for those persons with lung or heart problems. Surface water systems may be contaminated with ash and debris and heat may have damaged or destroyed outbuildings and equipment used for wells. Also, disinfection of water supplies may have been compromised and the water may not be safe to drink. Heat damaged and/or smoke damaged food items may harbor potentionally hazardous bacteria or chemicals.
A safe water supply or an alternate supply of water should be used for drinking and cleanup. Small quantities of water can be disinfected by boiling the water at a full roll for 2 minutes or adding 1/2 drops of bleach per litre of water and letting stand for 30 minutes.
HVAC System Restoration:
To complete any mitigation service involving water loss, mold remediation or fire and smoke loss, it is necessary to inspect the HVAC system, Thunder Restoration completes this task using careful, methodical procedures. If damage is found, the system is restored using state-of-the art equipment and techniques.
We inspect the entire HVAC system, using robotic video surveillance or less intrusive bore scopes to determine if the system damage is due to the current loss.
We clean the entire HVAC system using source removal techniques and powerful collection units.
We restore HVAC systems to pre-loss condition by removing the source of the damage and cleaning and/or removing and replacing the non-cleanable system components.
