Did you know that your local SERVPRO of Bloomington also has full capacity to handle smoke and soot damaged laundry?  It's a huge difference and a true reason why SERVPRO can handle your insurance claim. 

Our laundry system uses specialized equipment and procedures to ensure smoke and soot damaged clothing can be restored instead of replaced, making your insurance claim less and helping to keep premiums down. 

Our process can take even the smokiest and most soot damaged goods back to normal again. Even soft contents that are white that are stained from soot and water come clean to like new condition. 

Other restoration companies outsource their customers' laundry out of state meaning another set of hands processing laundry, more costs involved and a more lengthy process in getting your essential items back.

For more about how this process can restore and not replace all of your soft contents give your local SERVPRO a call at 812-824-2027.

The benefits of Air Filtration in your home.

12/4/2020 (Permalink)

HEPA FILTRATION

Did you know that Air filtration is a great way to keep harmful impurities that affect your health away from your family. Using an air purifier has numerous benefits as well, but you need to know which one is best capable of removing noxious (harmful, poisonous, or unpleasant) mold spores. Find out which types  of air purifiers are most effective at accomplishing a clean and healthy environment.

Air Purification Health Benefits

Besides removing mold spores and floating fungal particles, air purifiers generate atmospheres that are:

  • Clean
  • Odorless
  • Dustless
  • Free From Pet Dander

HVAC attachments reduce the burden placed upon your device, subsequently extending its life.
Although most purifiers can achieve the above objectives with ease, not all are as effective at eliminating mold spores. Making the right choice of air filtration is crucial if you want to keep your Bloomington Indiana home free from a situation requiring the services of a mold removal specialist.

Styles of Air Purification
Assuming your primary goal is to remove aerial fungi, one of your best options is a purifier that includes a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter. These filters are able to remove 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns or larger and machines equipped with a HEPA filter can dramatically improve your home’s air quality. Be certain to regularly change you HEPA filter on a regularly scheduled basis, as failure to do so can result in captured spores escaping.
Your other superior choice is a Photo Electrochemical Oxidizer. Using light activation to destroy air particles, an oxidizer is capable of actually eradicating airborne offenders instead of merely trapping them.
Many other systems exist, but none are better than either of the above selections. Photocatalytic oxidizers, for instance, can expunge some organic molecules, but they are highly inefficient. Ozone generators flood your residence with this peculiar-smelling form of oxygen on purpose, a bad idea for those with certain sensitivities. Carbon filter purifiers, which trap gasses, are totally incapable of removing fungus spores.
Keep your residence in St. Louis clear of mold growth through the use of effective air filtration, making sure that whichever model you pick is capable of handling the job.
