What Residues Get Cleaned Up After Fires in Scotch Plains Shops?

3/11/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO state of the art sign Commercial fire damage restoration is no easy task. SERVPRO has the manpower and equipment for every size disaster.

Fires produce many soil and residue deposits that fire damage restoration in Scotch Plains properties must address.

It is important to get fire mitigation services started as soon as our team arrives. We can work quickly to determine what threatens the structure the most and work through emergency services to protect the shop and its wares from irreparable harm. These approaches might include:

  • Debris removal
  • Water extraction
  • Furniture and content removal

Soot and Smoke Residues

More than any other cleanup need for businesses, fire damage in Scotch Plains shops and commercial properties is most often centered on removing soot and smoke residues. This process changes based on the type of soil composition on affected surfaces. This is usually indicated by the source of the fire, how fast it spreads through the house, and the heat involved.

Fire Suppression Residues

We must also find a suitable approach for cleaning up fire suppression residues. Many commercial properties feature a building-wide fire suppression system using sprinkler heads and clean water, but fire extinguisher residues can also be challenging to remove. We must determine the surface cleaning needs and begin these processes as soon as possible to protect your shop's wares, electronics, and structural elements.

Addressing Solids Before They Land

We can reduce the need for residue cleanup on surfaces and contents by trapping and removing these particles before they reach their destination. After a fire gets extinguished, smoke solids can continually circulate throughout the environment for several days. Our use of air scrubbers and HEPA filtration equipment can be crucial in grabbing microscopic particles as small as 0.3 microns to improve indoor air quality substantially.

Cleaning up after fire damage incidents can involve multiple residues and soils across the entire shop area. Because soot and smoke residues present a challenging obstacle to restorers, we arrive with considerable cleanup and deodorization solutions to manage these concerns quickly.
