Fire Damage Restoration in Oakland Can Restore the Indoor Air-Quality in your Home.

One of the primary side-effects of a property fire is the impact on indoor air quality. When materials combust, they can release microscopic soot, chemical, or odor into an indoor environment. Lack of proper ventilation, such as in a stairwell, can cause consistent indoor air quality problems and health effects.

Comprehensive fire damage restoration in your Oakland home includes returning your indoor air quality to a pre-incident condition. We have a range of equipment at SERVPRO specifically designed to remove soot, dust particles, odor, and chemicals from indoor air. Following a careful assessment of your home by either a crew chief or indoor environmental specialist, we can set to work returning the property to its preloss condition. 

  • Industrial centrifugal or axial fans can provide a consistent air-flow in the property and ensure that harmful toxins are exchanged with clean, indoor air.
  • The placing of box-fans follows our use of fumigation equipment to ensure that odor removal is successful and solvents are reduced to a safe level.
  • Air filtration devices (AFDs) are specifically designed to filter out microscopic dust and soots, making your indoor air safe.

Returning property to a preloss condition includes air-quality restoration. Contact SERVPRO of West Oakland for fire damage restoration at (510) 599-9300.
