Does Your Teaneck Home Have Smoke and Soot Damages

Any time a fire ignites, it can release partially combusted particles in the form of smoke. Smoke remediation can then be necessary as the partially combusted particles can deeply penetrate your building materials and contents. 

During fire and smoke clean-up in Teaneck, our SERVPRO technicians often have to implement deodorization procedures to remove odors caused by smoke. In some cases, removing the smoke aromas can involve using industrially advanced equipment such as a photocatalytic oxidizer. These machines work to remove malodor particles in the following ways:

  • The machine aids with fire damage restorations by creating oxidizing hydroxyl radicals by shining ultraviolet light onto a photocatalyst titanium dioxide.
  • The OH particles then attack harmful pollutants and destroy malodor cells to provide a final step in house fire clean-up.
  • Another plus when using a photocatalytic oxidizer on smoke damage is that the byproducts released when the OH molecules attack malodor particles are not harmful to humans. Once the oxidizing hydroxyl radicals react with the pollutants, they release water (H2O) particles and carbon dioxide (CO2).

If you ever need help from a restoration company that has experience working with a variety of fire-damaged homes, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482.
