SERVPRO is Only One Call Away When Commercial Fire Strikes!
SERVPRO - Remediating Commercial Fire Damage To Marco Island Businesses
Fires in Marco Island businesses usually end quickly. The sprinklers kick in automatically and put out any open flames almost as rapidly as they formed in the first place. Most of the damage comes from the residues left behind by the smoke and soot that spread through the structure much further than the heat and flames.
The key to removing commercial fire damage from a Marco Island card and stationary supply store is to do it quickly before it becomes permanent. That is why SERVPRO maintains a 24-hour, response team to meet every requirement, even when the call comes in at three in the morning.
The moment our team arrives on-site, they start with a quick inspection of the facility. The inspector begins at the origin point of the fire and works their way out to determine how far it moved through the building. As they trace the smoke path, other team members determine what types of residues they have to clean and remove. Multiple types are common. Each one depends on the material how hot it burned.
As the team identifies the residues, they also determine the affected surfaces. While a lot of paper products can be damaged by the sprinklers, much of it can be cleaned and returned to inventory if the residue can be brushed or wiped away with no more moisture. Other surfaces require different cleaning methods. For fabric covered furniture, SERVPRO technicians may need a brush or other agitation device and a chemical cleaner to remove soot and smoke residues.
For most items, team members can use a variety of sponges or dry cloths wipe down the surfaces. They do this first to hopefully preclude further soaking items that already absorbed water from the sprinklers or efforts from firefighters. With very thick or sticky residues, they can use a mild cleaning agent to break them up for easier removal. If there is a concern about soaking the item, technicians have the option to use a vacuum to break them up and remove them.
Finally, team members dispose of all residues they cleaned and also dispose of property too damaged by the residues or water for restoration. Every disposal is in accordance with Florida and EPA regulations.
