Follow These Four Suggestions for Commercial Property Restoration

8/25/2021 (Permalink)

Don’t let fire and smoke damage, water damage, or storm damage put your facility out of commission for too long. Here are sound suggestions on what you can do.

Hire Pros

Whether you have a large or small restoration project, it’s better to get pros to handle it. A commercial restoration cleaning service works quickly and efficiently. That makes a huge difference, especially since a great deal of restoration work is essentially a race against time. The longer your property or belongings are subjected to smoke, fire, or water damage, the harder it will be to restore them. By hiring pros, you have a better chance of restoring them to their pre-damaged states.

Confirm It’s Safe

Enter the property only after you’re certain that it’s safe. Avoid wading into standing water, for instance. Have a professional team come in to check for structural damage that compromises the facility in any way. It’s especially important that you don't try to take any of your belongings out yet. Wait until you get the go-ahead from pros.

Remove Debris and Soot

Before restoration can start, your restoration team will need to handle the removal of the soot and debris from the property. Soot might not seem to leave a huge impact, but the longer it stays on the surface, the greater the damage it leads to. Removing it will improve the quality of the air inside the facility and cut down on the airborne odors.

Remove Possessions

The restoration team will start taking your possessions out of the property. This is when you’ll find out which items are too damaged to restore, or which parts of your home will need to go.

How many times have you heard this nightmare? A business owner shows up early for work only to find that a sprinkler system malfunction has soaked the business and all of its furnishings!
