What Does Fire Damage Restoration Take for Orlando Business Operators?

Soot can stain all surfaces in your building. SERVPRO has proven techniques to remove the residues.

Restoring Fire Damage Is Easier with Help from Experienced Technicians From SERVPRO 

The level of damages left by fire depends on its intensity. Therefore, minimal damages are expected after a small fire. However, the definition of minimal damage is not specific, so you may not know what your Orlando business facility precisely requires to regain its preloss state. 

Completing fire damage restoration at your Orlando business facility is easier when you know what issues the fire causes. One easy way to access such information is by involving a professional restoration team that handles such incidents regularly. SERVPRO helps analyze fire loss sites and also provides restoration services.

Some typical issues to address during restoration include: 

  • Soot stains 
  • Strong odors
  • Weakened structural materials
  • Damaged electrical components in appliances

The problems develop for various reasons, so you cannot expect the same issues in every incident. Soot stains are common when soot deposited on fabrics mixes with moisture during fire suppression or cleaning. Staining can also form on polished stone surfaces if fire residues are left in place over extended periods. Our SERVPRO teams use different approaches to combat staining, including regulating moisture levels and pre-cleaning vulnerable materials.

Smoky odors are common after a fire incident, but they usually go away after cleaning. However, if the smell is too strong, elaborate deodorization is necessary. Such deodorization can be incorporated into the cleaning processes or performed independently.

Deodorization of your business premise after fire loss may require:

  • Water-based deodorizers to mix with cleaning agents
  • Fogging with solvent-based deodorizers 
  • Neutralizing odor molecules with activated oxygen

Structural changes are also common after fires creating hazards such as the risk of ceilings or shelves collapsing, causing injuries. Deep charring can conceal weakened structural elements since it can be mistaken for residue deposits. Our SERVPRO restoration technicians confirm which areas have residues and where there is deep charring.
