Air Quality Devices Used After Fire Losses in Planation Homes

Improving the quality of the air is vital for Plantation homes recovering from a fire loss incident. Many threats can circulate in the air after a disaster, including soot, ash, and other carcinogens. To begin effective restoration and recovery of a fire-damaged property, our SERVPRO team must address these pressing air quality concerns during the mitigation phase.

Clearing the air involves the use of several sophisticated tools, and typically takes place among the other mitigation tactics for fire damage in Plantation homes. This process is also vital when emergency services like controlled demolition and debris removal are necessary, as these tasks can aerosolize soot and other particulates. Air quality and filtration equipment can reduce the presence of these contaminants and hazards in the environment through various approaches.

Air Scrubbers

Air scrubbing equipment is one of the most effective tools for reducing airborne contaminants after a fire loss incident. While these do little to address smoke odors and other concerns, they do have impellers capable of pulling in high volumes of air and moving them through an onboard HEPA filtration system to reduce particles in the air as small as 0.3 microns.

Hydroxyl Generators 

Because harsh odors from smoke and charring are often present throughout the damaged areas once mitigation begins, our SERVPRO team can benefit from using a multi-purpose tool like the hydroxyl machine. These stationary units utilize UV cleaning to neutralize odor threats while pulling air through the filtration system to reduce visible particulates circulating in the damaged region of the house.


Reducing the hazards in the environment can often get aided by reducing the presence of residues and soot on surfaces and contents throughout the property. With practices like soda and media blasting, we can remove soot with a damp application to minimize dust while preventing a potential aerosolization hazard later by allowing soot-covered surfaces to go uncleaned.

Removing airborne contaminants from a house after a fire is a vital task to reduce health hazards to those exposed. Our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South team has cutting-edge filtration equipment and cleaning practice to help. Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (954) 776-2000.
