What is an Air Scrubber, and why do you use it?
This specialty piece of machinery creates a safe working environment for the crews that are working in the damaged environment. Air scrubbers can also prevent damage from spreading to other structural building materials and limits contents from absorbing the odors.
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.
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.
Some may ask?
Will an Air Scrubber Help With Bad Odors?
It sure will. When an air scrubber “scrubs” pollutants from the air, it essentially obliterates them – along with their unpleasant odors. Air scrubbers can help eliminate common household odors associated with pets, cigarette smoke, paint fumes, mold spores… and even burnt food!

Pollen Has Arrived!
As the season finally warms pollen is close behind it. Often times it is nowhere near as welcomed as the warm weather. Running noses and itchy eyes do not seem like a dream come true but they are a reality for most people suffering from allergies. Common seasonal allergies include oak, western red cedar, sycamore, maple, elm, birch, ash, cypress, walnut, hickory, and poplar tree pollen and well as a number of weeds and grass varieties. Various symptoms include sneezing, congestion and itchy eyes, ear, nose, as well as throat. To combat this many homeowners, believe that they will be safe from such allergens inside.
Dirty duct work however can cause allergens to follow you inside your home as well. A professional duct cleaning by SERVPRO of York, James City, and Poquoson can be effective at removing potentially disturbing allergens from persisting in your home.
