Air Filtration Devices Air Scrubbers

Do you ever wonder why Fire and Water Damage Restoration Professionals use Air Scrubbers or Negative Air Machines on a fire, mold or water clean-up job? 

These devices are utilized to clean the air from the odors and toxic gases that are left over after the fire has been extinguished or the residual odors from a water loss. Also on mold remediation jobs they help clean the air of airborne mold spores and other contaminants in the air. 

This machine also creates a safe working environment for the work crews and also can prevent damage from spreading to other structural building materials and to help limit contents from absorbing the odors. 

This is achieved by changing over the air in the damaged structure at a minimum of three to four times per hour.  We accomplish this by setting up the machines under positive air flow or negative air flow.  Which type of air flow needed is determined by the severity of the job.  This ultimately helps our cleaning crews reduce or eliminate smoke or soot residue, ash particles and residues which are present after a fire. 

In order to remove airborne particles from the surrounding environment, an air scrubber draws the air through a series of filters. Each filter stage operates with progressively higher efficiency. The net effect is to produce the cleanest air possible at the highest rate of airflow through the entire filter system. These air scrubbers are equipped with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters along with 2 other filters. The air scrubbers will filter out 99.97% of the air down to 0.3 microns.

These air scrubbers are commonly used on mold remediation, water damages, fire damages, sewage damages, odors, dust control and bio-hazard jobs.
