What To Expect During a Business Fire Restoration

After a fire or smoke damage has affected your Long Key, FL, business it may be time to contact a local fire damage restoration service. There are a few things you can expect to see during the restoration of the property. Here’s what you may want to know.

1. Damage Assessment

One of the first steps a restoration crew will take is a damage assessment. They will inspect the space to see if any water damage has occurred if there’s any danger of mold growth, how extensive the fire damage is, and if any soot damage is present. Once they know what damage types are where they can begin taking the appropriate steps for restoration.

2. Item Cleaning

A restoration service may also be able to offer item cleaning for any items affected by smoke damage. Different items may require different cleaning solutions, but in most cases, they should be able to be restored. Even electronics and paper files may be salvageable. If you have questions about these items and if restoration is possible for them, talk to the professionals working on the restoration.

3. Property Restoration

Once the damage has been assessed and the items removed from the space, the restoration can begin. The area will be thoroughly dried, and the crew will begin replacing any materials that cannot be cleaned and restored. They may even bring in an ozone machine to help with smoke cleaning. One the cleaning and repairs are finished they can repaint the space so that it looks like the fire never occurred.

A local restoration service may do a few things when restoring your business property from fire or smoke damage. You may see them perform a damage assessment to document where and what types of damage have occurred, clean the various items that may have been harmed by smoke or flame, and take the steps needed to restore the property. Remember, if you have any questions a professional can help.
