Commercial fire damage can cause devastating effects, and most property owners do not know what to do when they face such situations.

We are here to take you through some of the restoration procedures that our technicians perform when working for you.

When your business experiences a fire, removal of the charred contents is necessary, and our SERVPRO technicians should come up with appropriate cleaning methods and fix the fire damaged areas.

Without the right equipment, it can be challenging to clean large structures such as warehouses. Our SERVPRO technicians are equipped with the right tools, such as Dehumidifiers and high-pressure washers. If we have to clear the smoke residues from the higher parts of the building and perform the required inspection, we can use a scissor lift to reach the target locations.
You usually find different items in a commercial building, which means the smoke residues that the fire leaves behind are not uniform. To adequately address the different residues, our SERVPRO technicians use several approaches. While agitation is the most common method of removing smoke particles from surfaces, we might also introduce chemical actions such as oxidation, dissolving, emulsification, and bleaching. Some of the cleaning agents work best at specific temperatures, so we are also keen on such requirements.
