11/8/2022 (Permalink)

A person tests a smoke detector. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego!

Our local Mission Valley East team responds to fire damage emergencies in Serra Mesa 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. Smoke alarms are a crucial part of a home fire safety plan, and these alarms detect smoke, allowing you and your household to get out of the house quickly if there is an emergency. Here are some smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years

Commercial Smoke Damage Restoration Services in Mission Valley?

9/20/2022 (Permalink)

A firefighter walks through a smoke-filled building to locate the source of the smoke. We restore commercial smoke and fire damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Our Mission Valley East team uses various specialized equipment to restore smoke damage in commercial properties. Here are some examples of equipment we use:

Air Scrubber or Filter: Heating, ventilation, air conditioning system (HVAC) air scrubber, or a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) air purifier can capture larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator: These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging: Fogging machines are used after the building is evacuated. Smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator: A hydroxyl generator is a slower and gentler alternative to ozone. These machines use ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.

Vapor Modification: Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor
