After A Fire, There Are Three Types Of Cleanup That Must Be Done.

A fire in your Bonita Springs, Florida, building can be devastating. It can cause extensive damage, making it difficult to get back to work right away. You will probably need to have fire, smoke and water cleanup done before the building can be used again. These are three common ways in which your building is likely to be affected after a fire and each should be taken care of as quickly as possible.

1. Fire Cleanup

When you think of a fire, the first thing that comes to mind is probably how the flames will damage your building. This is often the most obvious type of damage and can affect the building's structure. When cleaning up fire damage, some areas may need to be removed and rebuilt, depending on how severe the damage was.

2. Smoke Cleanup

While it may not seem as troublesome as fire damage, smoke damage can also cause quite a few problems. Smoke can easily travel further than flames, affecting a larger area of your building. Soot can cover walls, floors and equipment and should be removed right away. Acidic particles can erode certain materials and can be especially damaging to electronic equipment such as computers, phones and tablets.

3. Water Cleanup

After a fire, you might also experience a large amount of water damage. If the sprinklers go off or the fire department needs to use a hose to put out the flames, then there could be quite a bit of water in the building afterward. If this is allowed to remain for too long, you could have additional problems such as rotting materials and mold growth. Fortunately, there are emergency restoration services that can take care of damage in the building after a fire.

A fire can be incredibly damaging to your building, but that doesn’t mean that you need to stress too much. Professionals can perform water cleanup as well as other repairs to get your workspace back in good condition.
