Fire Debris Removal and Emergency Services for San Martin

Mitigation is a popular term to describe the initial steps taken when restorers first arrive, though emergency services often precede even these actions. Among the most beneficial work that our SERVPRO technicians and contractors can do when permitted to enter after extinguishment is fire debris removal. Clearing out the rubbish, ash, and charred remnants of contents and structural materials can have multiple advantages for the overall restoration process. The most direct impact that fire debris removal can have includes:

  • Reducing smoke odors
  • Reducing soot concentrations
  • Showing structural weaknesses

Smoke Odor Removal from San Martin Homes

Removing harsh odors from the property can be a substantial obstacle for responding technicians, as this smell can move throughout the property beyond the initial damaged areas. We have multiple deodorization tools, though most often, the bulk of this process falls to ozone machines, hydroxyl generators, and thermal foggers.
