Ash, soot, dust, and charred materials may be considered hazardous waste, which could affect the safety of your business for both staff and customers. It is vital to have a planned procedure for removing these materials from a premise without causing toxins to spread. It is just as important to correctly dispose of these substances by first identifying them and following guidelines from the environmental protection agency (EPA). After a business fire, most premises managers enlist the assistance of a professional restoration firm to help them quickly overcome:

  • Water & fire damage restorations
  • Smoke damage 
  • Fire restoration

A team of commercial fire damage technicians in Great Falls can help your business to reduce temporary closure following a fire. For many types of ash and charring, it is possible to contain these materials using double-sealed polyethylene bags and transport them to a municipal solid waste landfill. However, for some businesses, there may be toxic or chemical materials on site that could lead to ashes being unsuitable for transport to a landfill. These may include items like bulk pesticides, fertilizers, and larger air conditioning systems (HVAC). 

  • We can help identify specific types of waste by enlisting indoor environmental scientists or assistance from the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC).
  • Pre-testing of materials and thorough assessment of the structure by a qualified technician can help to identify hazardous materials further. 
  • We can seal, transport, and dispose of any potentially biohazardous substances on-site included within the restoration service.
