The removal of smoke residues alone is often a difficult challenge.

Challenges That Come Up When Dealing with Collegedale Restaurant Fire Damage

You have worked for years building a successful local restaurant. The menu is finally perfect, and customers begin visiting regularly. Unfortunately, a fire breaks out in your kitchen, causing damages that are beyond your capabilities to restore.

Every building is susceptible to fire damage, even your restaurant in Collegedale. When this type of event happens to you, access to a professional restoration company becomes crucial. You want someone available that knows how to handle the kind of damage done by smoke and fire, or any other damage you may face getting your business back to normal quickly.

SERVPRO responds immediately to your request for help, providing you with the expertly trained technicians, equipment, and expertise necessary to perform your restoration utilizing specialized cleaning techniques to save as much of your property as possible. While each situation is different, we work diligently to restore your items rather than simply suggesting a replacement.

SERVPRO's full fire damage restoration process involves tackling many different kinds of damages including, fire, smoke, and water exposure from fire suppression systems or firefighting efforts. While we use specific water extraction equipment such as hand-held extractors with five to twelve-gallon solution and waste tanks for smaller jobs, truck mounted extractors with sixty to one hundred-gallon storage containers may be necessary for larger jobs.

SERVPRO technicians face many cleaning challenges and a variety of factors that affects the cleanability of different materials. The type of material burned, the amount of heat, oxygen, and moisture present, air flow patterns in your particular building, type of smoke residues produced by the fire, and the different kinds of surfaces impacted by smoke and heat all play a role.

The removal of smoke residues alone is often a difficult challenge. Porous surfaces allow smoke particles and odors to penetrate further into the material than nonporous surfaces. Wall coverings or glossy, enamel painted surfaces are easier to clean than flat latex paint or wallpaper coverings.

Challenges also include determining the amount of heat involved and the age of the surface that is exposed, while the amount of moisture that exists helps set residues and makes material stains more likely to occur, which is why a quick response to your situation becomes such a concern.
