Commercial Fires and Water Damage

After a fire at your business, there's liable to be a significant amount of water damage in addition to the fire damage. It's likely that automatic sprinklers have gone off, and that at least one fire hose was used to extinguish the flames. There may be wet drywall and carpeting, which can lead to a mold problem if not addressed properly and promptly. 

This situation requires the skills of a professional restoration company. They can take care of the damage by:

  • Making a thorough inspection
  • Extracting the water
  • Drying and dehumidifying
  • Disinfecting and cleaning
  • Repairing damage and completing restoration

Damage Inspection and Assessment

Our crews will first makes a careful inspection, assessing the water and fire damage and looking for any possible other problems, such as water behind walls. From our assessment they can determine which specialized equipment and techniques are best suited to the task.

Water Removal

As quickly as possible, the technicians begin the process of water extraction. This minimizes the chance of more damage from secondary sources such as mold. Any excess water is removed, using heavy-duty pumps and vacuums.

Drying and Dehumidification

At this point, the restoration team focuses on removing any moisture or humidity that remains. This is done through the use of professional-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Cleaning and Disinfecting

After everything is thoroughly dried, the remaining items and surfaces are treated to remove any threat from microbes or mold, using a variety of specialized methods. Any lingering odors are dealt with by using air scrubbers and foggers.

Damage Repair and Restoration

As soon as all moisture has been completely extracted and any threat from pathogens has been eliminated, the repair and restoration work can start. Depending on the extent of the damage, this might involve simple tasks like replacing carpets and painting, or more complex work like rebuilding entire rooms.
