When Fire Strikes Your Commercial Building
If you experience a fire loss in your home or business, here are some tips to better understand the fire restoration process.
- Emergency Contact
When you call SERVPRO of Monroeville/Evergreen/Brewton, you will be asked questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate team, equipment, and resources.
- Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
SERVPRO of Monroeville/Evergreen/Brewton technicians carefully inspect the entire home or business, not just the immediate area. Sometimes, soot and water affect areas that are not always seen. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
- Immediate Board-up and Roof Tarp Service
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs, as seen in the photo of the commercial property. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
- Water Removal and Drying (if water is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. Most of the water occurs if pipes melt and leak, or from the firefighters' efforts to extinguish the fire. We use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the water and complete the drying process.
- Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
- Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We’re also trained to remove several types of odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. SERVPRO of Monroeville/Evergreen/Brewton has a reconstruction division that focuses solely on getting your home or business back to normal, "Like it never even happened."
