What is an Air Scrubber, and why do you use it?

5/23/2023 (Permalink)

This specialty piece of machinery creates a safe working environment for the crews that are working in the damaged environment. Air scrubbers can also can prevent damage from spreading to other structural building materials and to help limit contents from absorbing the odors. 

These devices are utilized to remove 99.97% of particulate in the air down to .03 microns.  An air scrubber can be useful on mold, fire, water and sewage jobs.  They can also help to remove odors when a charcoal filter is installed. 

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 situation and or the severity of the job.  This specialty piece of equipment helps  our crews reduce or eliminate smoke or soot residue, ash particles and any other residues which are present after a fire or water damage. 

If you have questions or need help with any deodorization, please call SERVPRO of New Kent, Williamsburg, & Northern Neck 804-966-1400!
