Eliminating Smoke Damage Fast

In many cases, potentially toxic smoke is the most dangerous part of a structure fire. It’s that smoke, trapped and concentrated in the burning structure, that can saturate even parts that didn’t burn, contaminating every article of clothing, every piece of furniture, every child’s stuffed toy with potentially allergenic or toxic smoke particles. The smoke particles are microscopic, so they are hard to remove, requiring specialized techniques and equipment.

Smoke particles can include:

  • Tar
  • Carcinogens
  • Heavy metals
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Allergens
  • Radioactive particles
