Smoke Damage That Could Affect Your Business Include:

  • Likewise, if smoke and soot residue remain on surfaces for too long they can continue to cause problems.
  • In a span of minutes, discoloration can happen to walls, commercial equipment, surfaces, and other areas.
  • In addition, smoke etches glass and tarnishes metal quickly.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Approach:

  • Firstly, commercial fire damage restoration professionals must remove damaged components deemed unsafe. This includes building materials and damaged electronics.
  • Secondly, it is critical that professionals remove floor coverings to prevent soot, dust, and harmful contamination from settling on the floor.
  • Thirdly, fire damage restoration professionals evaluate structural framing. They evaluate subflooring and support beams, to ensure the structure remains strong.
  • They also remove odor and contamination caused by smoke and soot from the fire.
  • Fifthly,  professionals remove the HVAC system to repair or replace it. This is to restore fresh air to the property.

Don’t Try to Do It Yourself

Smoke continues to destroy your structure and its contents even after the fire is out. Smoke that coats or penetrates surfaces affects the chemical composition of fabrics, metals, walls, ceilings, and even tiles. The residue left behind after a fire is hazardous and can cause health problems if not managed correctly and thoroughly. Do not attempt to clean up your commercial property on your own. You may cause more damage. Only experts with the right training and tools can assure the job is properly done.
