How SERVPRO Turns Around Commercial Fire Damage in Farmington Businesses

Even though the science behind how smoke acts is finite, the commercial fire damage left behind is unique to the structure and contents. That is why each site we work on is a new challenge to limit loss for business property owners.

When SERVPRO handles commercial fire damage in a Farmington business, we know the goal is to get the company restored to sanitary and preloss condition so it can reopen as soon as possible. Because every minute closed due to the damage is revenue lost, which can lead to unemployment for employees and in some cases, reputation-damaging reviews from customers who are unable to access your product or services.

During the initial phone call, we advise property owners not to clean up smoke residue or soot before our arrival. Putting water or liquid cleaners on soot can compound the issue and leave hard-to-remove stains. Our technicians perform tests on residues to determine the correct cleaning method for individual surfaces and items.

The majority of commercial fire loss happens to a single area such as a breakroom or storage area. One of the first actions SERVPRO technicians undertake is the containment of the fire damaged area. Placing plastic sheeting over doorways and turning off the HVAC helps stop the spread of soot throughout the rest of the property. Negative air machines are also beneficial for helping remove airborne particles away from the site.

We move out items for cleaning in another area of the building, or we pack out to our location. Charred building materials and objects have no restorable potential are discard with the property owner's permission as they contribute only odor; after extraction of water, debris and thorough drying. Disinfection and odor control methods are deployed to leave the property clean and ready to open for business.

After SERVPRO technicians finish fire damage mitigation, we give the property owner a detailed list of actions, including preloss photos of the areas cleaned and restored to assist with any insurance settlements that require evidentiary support for claims.

SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley is ready to help property owners mitigate commercial fire damage and limit loss. Contact our emergency response team at (860) 675-4500, and we can be on-site soon after your call because We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.
