Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Why Fire Damage Often Includes Water Damage

5/10/2022 (Permalink)

Any unexpected damage to your commercial building in Grantville, CA, is a setback, and fire damage is one of the worst disasters that can happen to a company. Not only can it disrupt your business operations and destroy company records, but it is also a notoriously difficult cleanup job. Fortunately, a full-service fire restoration company can arrive at your property soon after the fire and begin the process.

The Initial Stages of the Cleanup

After a fire, a building can be an unstable place full of hazards for employees. The first stage is to secure the building from additional harm and promote safety for everyone. This is typically done with urgency through several actions:

  • A quick inspection of the property
  • A board up and tarp coverage if necessary
  • A cordoning off of dangerous zones

Once this is accomplished, the workers will perform an additional inspection. The focus at this point will be the development of an orderly and efficient restoration plan.

The Stage That Deals With Water Damage
In any significant fire scenario, fire fighting crews or company sprinkler systems have been utilized to douse the flames. This leads to issues of water in the building, sometimes enough to cause damage to structures, electrical equipment, records and other items. While a sprinkler system is targeted and might not release a lot of water, a fire hose can release hundreds of gallons of water in a short time, demanding attention.

The End Stage of a Cleanup
The next stage deals with cleaning up soot and smoke damage and restoring or replacing damaged items. This can happen fairly quickly in a minor fire, or it can take several days in a larger business fire. The emphasis will be on restoring your working operations as soon as possible.
Fire damage often must deal with multiple ancillary problems. Professional help often leads to the quickest possible recovery.
