Commercial Fire and Smoke Restoration Claims
Having a fire in your business can be traumatic and stressful. Commercial fire and smoke restoration claims can be time-consuming and frustrating. If the fire caused a great deal of damage to a business, business owners may need the help of experienced public adjusters to get the business back up and running.
First, contact your insurance company to report the fire. Of course, the sooner you do that, the sooner the claims process will start.
Next, you’ll want to call a fire damage restoration company. They will provide emergency service so the cleanup of your damaged property can begin.
You will want companies experienced in commercial fire and smoke damaged restoration.
The residue left behind after a fire is hazardous and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. You do not want to clean up your business on your own after a fire.
The Restoration Process
The restoration process begins with an inspection by the restoration company. They will inspect damaged structures, the extent of fire damage, and where smoke and soot residue spread.
Water Damage Restoration Begins Immediately
For most medium to large fires, water damage is always an issue. They must remove as soon water as possible.
In addition, they have to completely dry out the areas which were covered by water. Otherwise, mold and mildew can appear.
Removal of Smoke and Soot
Most of the cleaning after a fire involves removing smoke and soot residues from the building structure and surfaces.
To remove soot and smoke residues, a smoke restoration technician uses specialized equipment. This equipment will pick up the smoke and soot residues. The technician will also use special sponges to wipe down wall, ceilings, etc.
The restore team will also remove smoke odors from the building.
They will inspect all equipment, such as computers, cabinets, and furniture. If they are still usable, they will clean the equipment.
The restoration company will then get your building back to its pre-fire condition. This may mean replacing ceilings, new sheetrock and painting.
In addition, they will replace damaged windows and doors.
How Long Does a Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Take?
Certainly, the length of a fire restoration project varies greatly. For instance, the sire of fire, and extent of smoke and soot damage are factors. Moreover, the type and size of the building are also important.
As a result, it can take a few days.
Or several weeks.

After a house fire, even a small one, the property owner will likely have to remove damaged or destroyed items. However, debris removal after a house fire can be complicated by the presence of hazardous material, like damaged propane tanks. Typically, insurance carriers will cover the cost of debris removal up to a point. However, how much coverage your homeowners’ insurance will provide depends on the insurance company and the policy terms.
If a fire has occurred at your home, your first concern, of course, is the safety of yourself and your family. However, depending on the extent of the fire damage, you will have to resolve the issue of salvageable v. non-salvageable property after a fire. Homeowners’ insurance protects your home itself (Dwelling Coverage) and its contents (Personal Property Coverage). High heat, smoke, and soot can cause extensive damage to your personal property, such as clothes, furniture, hardwood floors, and appliances. For instance, smoke damage causes fabrics, clothes, and soft goods to reek of the smell of smoke. Additionally, smoke and soot can discolor objects and reduce the life span of electronics and machinery. Consequently, you and your insurance company will have to determine which personal property is salvageable v. non-salvageable property after a fire.
