Steps for Fire Restoration

When a fire affects your Scullville, NJ, commercial property, the cleanup process may feel overwhelming. Not only must you contend with flooding from fire hoses and scorched building materials, but multiple floors may also have serious smoke damage. This may all seem difficult to handle, but learning the steps a fire restoration company may take to repair the damage can have you feeling more confident about returning to business operations faster.

Once a contractor or the fire department deems the building safe to enter, fire restoration technicians will assess your commercial property and note which services you will need. Depending on the severity of the fire, you may require multiple needs, including:

  • Smoke cleaning
  • Removal of damaged building materials
  • Gathering and removal of fire debris

The technicians will likely keep you up to date about which services your building needs so you can calculate costs and report them to your insurance company

Appraising Smoke Damage Needs

Smoke can cause a great deal of damage to a variety of items inside your business, such as furniture, inventory and electronic equipment. Porous objects will absorb the smoke and its odor, which can discolor and tarnish metals, fabrics and glass. Smoke can also cause some items to yellow, which can make them appear dirty.

Specialized Cleaning

When your building suffers smoke and soot damage, a fire cleanup and restoration service can bring in specialized cleaning materials, such as ozone machines, to clean soot and odors from each room. After a serious fire, smoke odor cannot be cleaned away with room deodorizers, as they are usually not powerful enough to eliminate these smells completely.
Cleaning up after a fire at your Scullville, NJ, business can feel like a daunting task, especially when it comes to smoke damage and ridding your building of the odors a fire can cause. The more you understand the cleanup process, the more confident you can feel about the outcome.
