Colorado Springs, CO, July 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Colorado Springs, CO is beginning its recovery from the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history. Residents and business owners fortunate enough to return to intact structures, face the problem of smoke damage.
Soot from wildfires can permeate a home or business. It’s a known carcinogen (cancer causing agent) to humans. Smoke from wildfires can hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases. Of particular concern are facilities ranging from nursing homes to hotels to businesses, where people are indoors for extended times with no place to escape.
According to Blaine Parry, Managing Partner of American Water Damage, “Wildfire smoke and soot contamination cause particles to settle onto contents and fabrics and can be absorbed into porous surfaces,” he states. “Attempting to clean it yourself can often make it worse.”
Parry, who has many professional certifications, including Fire and Smoke Restoration has a solution to solve the smoke damage problem – Hydroxyl Generators.
Very effective at removing odors, Hydroxyl Generators are also good for removing the volatile chemicals associated with the smoke. Hydroxyl generators can be put to work immediately while people are still occupying the space.
Hydroxyl generators are not readily available in the Colorado Springs area, but American Water Damage has the machines and is ready to provide smoke and soot removal assistance. In the short term the generators help clear the air but over the longer term they also remove the smoke from fabric, walls etc. and eliminate the need for more major cleaning or replacement.
