Whether it is a restaurant, office complex, manufacturing facility, or other commercial structure, a fire can be devastating. If not noticed immediately and put out as quickly as possible, the fire damage can potentially have a business closed for months while repairs take place. However, what many people fail to realize is that the damage caused by the fire and smoke can go far beyond what you may actually see. If you have suffered fire and smoke damage to your commercial facility, here are the most common types of damage you’ll encounter and why you’ll need to call on us here at Rocky Mountain Restoration.
While the fire may have dissipated, the strong odors that follow have not. Depending on how large a fire you had, odors from smoke and toxic chemicals are still present. Since insulation, furniture, and other items may have burned and released various chemicals into the air, you will require professionals who are trained in how to safely clean these scenes. Otherwise, you and others could continue to be exposed to unsafe air for a prolonged period of time.
Along with the odors that will be present in your building, there will likely also be mold starting to grow on building materials that got wet in the course of putting out the fire. If this problem is not addressed as soon as possible, mold can start growing in as little as 24 hours.
Whether it is computers, furniture, or other items, your office environment certainly does not look the same after a fire. By calling us at Rocky Mountain Restoration immediately, we can not only get your location secured and assess the damage, but also start working with you and your insurance company.
Since you will be dealing with these problems as well as soot, smoke, and tremendous water damage, don’t try to handle the cleanup on your own. Instead, pick up the phone and call us at Rocky Mountain Restoration. By calling 480-309-2524 anytime night or day, you’ll gain peace of mind and instantly have highly-trained professionals on the job.
