Fire And Smoke Detectors Malfunction
When any kind of equipment fails it can cause problems. The dust on the carpeting of this corridor in a hotel was the result of a false fire alarm.
The fire suppressing powder had no where to go since there was no fire, except on the commercial grade carpeting in the hallway.
We used HEPA filtered vacuums to suction the dust from the fibers of the carpeting. We sealed off both ends of the corridor to limit the spreading of the dust as an airborne nuisance, and also to isolate the hotel guests from this area. We then had our CCT, carpet cleaning technician specialist, put the final touches on restoring the flooring to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
