What is the Commercial Fire Cleanup Process?

Fire damage clean-up and restoration is a process that can take weeks or even months to complete. It is critical to understand how the process works and what steps are involved to ensure that your Bonita Springs, FL home or business is completely restored.

Inspect and assess the damage

The first step in the commercial cleanup process is to inspect and assess the damage, which includes identifying fire and smoke damage.

  • Fire damage. When it comes to fire, you’re looking for charring or blackening of surfaces, especially those that are normally concealed. The extent of smoke odor can also be a good indicator of how much heat was applied to an item. Smoke damage can range from very light soot marking on furniture or equipment up through complete charring.
  • Water damage from sprinkler systems or excessive water used by firefighters during their operations can cause significant damage if left untreated for an extended period – not only to property but also potentially to building occupants’ health if not addressed quickly enough

Plan and take action

Planning is key to success. The more time you spend planning for a clean-up, the better your results will be.

  • What are the goals of your commercial fire cleanup project?
  • What materials need to be removed?
  • How much time do you have to complete the project?
  • How many people will work on this project and what skills do they have?

Pack-out necessary items

Once the inspection of your property is completed, you'll want to pack out any belongings that are damaged or can be damaged by the cleanup process. If you are planning on remodeling the space and not moving back into it immediately, then it is recommended that all personal items should be removed from the property during this time as well.

Immediately after an accident, a building's structural integrity may have been compromised. As such, if there were any areas of the structure that appear unsafe or unstable after a fire, then these areas should be removed and replaced before any additional cleaning can begin!

Structure cleaning

Structure clean-up is the process of cleaning the structure of a building. Structure clean-up includes walls, ceilings, woodwork, and other types of surfaces that were exposed to smoke during a fire. The goal of structure cleanup is to ensure that any remaining soot or residue from the fire is removed from these surfaces before they are occupied again by people or animals.

As part of your fire restoration process, you will want to have all smoke-damaged items cleaned and dried as soon as possible after your fire damage occurs. This will help prevent further damage or contamination which could greatly increase both time and costs required for the completion of this step in your restoration project

Contents cleaning 

SERVPRO of Bonita Springs/Estero specializes in contents cleaning, which is the restoration of items that have been damaged by fire. This can include clothing, furniture, and personal belongings.

Before cleaning any items or restoring them to their original state, we first perform an assessment of each item’s condition. This helps us determine if it needs to be cleaned or restored and how much work will be necessary on our part to get it back into working order again.

Reinstallation of cleaned/restored items

The restoration process is complete when you're happy with the results. But don't stop there! It's important to make sure that your belongings are properly reinstalled in their original places and settings.

Items that were damaged by soot, smoke, or heat will need to be cleaned again before being replaced. If any items were destroyed, such as carpeting or furniture, replacements must be purchased. And for those items that can't be restored (like a burned-out light bulb), it's time for replacements too!

The same goes for odor elimination—after all this work, it would be terrible to have lingering smells in your home after everything is finished. A thorough cleaning should eliminate any remaining odors from your space so you can enjoy living there once again without worrying about unpleasant smells sneaking up on you out of nowhere! No need to worry though, SERVPRO of Bonita Springs/Estero can take care of it all.

When it comes to commercial fire cleaning services, there are many options available. However, it can be difficult to know which company is right for you and your needs. We hope our guide has helped you understand more about the process and how we can assist you with your next cleanup job!
