What Do I Do Now That the Fire Is Out?
Having a fire in your building is something that you never would have imagined could happen to you, but it did. You will likely want to work closely with your fire insurance company to assess the damage. In addition to the problems caused by fire and water, there may be an abundance of smoke damage. Starting on cleanup right away can help reduce the consequences of a commercial fire.
What Can You Do?
It is important that you leave fire restoration to the experts. Restrict movement in the building to avoid increasing damage. Do not attempt to clean items yourself or remove things until they have been examined by a professional.
What Happens Next?
A highly trained and professional restoration team will create a tailored project plan for you after a complete site survey and assessment. Priority will be mitigation of further harm to your building. The team will quickly secure your property to ensure that more damage does not occur. Drying out the facility comes next, followed by disinfecting, smoke cleaning and removing odor caused by the fire. Trained technicians will work to identify the source of any lingering odors and use the proper tools to eliminate them. Work with a company that will also repair versus replace where possible.
Your business is important to you, so get the help you need. Do not try to start cleanup on your own. Working on your fire restoration with a trained team will help things go more smoothly and can greatly reduce your stress so you can get back to business sooner.
