Fire Debris Removal Essentials in Minneapolis
Effectively Removing Fire Damaged Debris in Minneapolis
The soiling and rubble left after a household fire in Minneapolis require professionals to sort, bag and discard. Unlike ordinary dirt, the residues left can emit toxic fumes and skin contact can be irritating or even dangerous. Our fully trained and certified crews and curated inventory of products and cleaning equipment supports safe, appropriate, and lawful cleanup and disposal of the debris. We pledge to complete your job quickly and with minimal to no risk to your health and the public and the environment’s well-being.
During fire debris removal in your Minneapolis house, it is critical to contain hazardous airborne and settled residues and damaged building materials and contents. To ensure your and your family’s safety and observe OSHA requirements for our workers, it makes sense to seal off the workspace. We use 6 mil polyethylene to create a partition that we seal using negative pressure air scrubbing technology. The air scrubber also forces the debris-contaminated atmosphere within the workspace through HEPA filters and vents to the outdoors. Our crew members also dress in personal protective equipment (PPE) for their safety and to avoid tracking fire debris through the rest of your home.
Debris Collection and Disposal
Since the chemical reactions caused by the fire created an endless list of toxic substances, SERVPRO crews shovel, lift, and pack the charred and melted items into appropriate containment receptacles. The things we bag up can include insulation, drywall, woodwork, flooring, household goods, and other contents -- anything that cannot be restored because of severe damage. We are familiar with the city, Hennepin County, and state requirements for fire debris disposal rules, protecting you from any violation citations.
Housing construction in our community can predate the current codes concerning lead paint, asbestos, and other hazards. SERVPRO scopes for these complications during the initial assessment, and arranges for certified removal of any of these dangerous materials and substances during our fire debris removal project. Throughout the job, we are on high alert for any structural weakness because of the fire.
