When people think of a fire damaging a commercial building, their thoughts usually turn to the damage caused by the flames. While flames do cause significant damage, the role of smoke and soot cannot be underestimated. Smoke and soot can do as much damage as the flames, or even more, to everything in the building including furniture, computers, drywall, windows, flooring, and the HVAC system.
Smoke Odor Removal Services. Long after the fire is out and the repairs begin, odors can make the structure unusable. Areas of the building that were unaffected by the flames and have no structural damage can be invaded by smoke, creating the need for smoke remediation before the rooms can be used. If remediation isn’t performed quickly, smoke can permanently damage items, necessitating costly replacement.
Soot Removal. Soot is a caustic, damaging remnant of a fire. Because of the many different chemicals left behind in soot, it can continue to wreak havoc on any surface it’s in contact with. If soot isn’t removed properly by trained fire damage restoration specialists, it can permanently damage many items within a commercial building. Our restoration processes for soot removal are carefully controlled and performed by trained fire restoration specialists.
HVAC Cleaning. Because the particulates in smoke are so tiny, it can travel long distances quickly. It can squeeze through window panes, door frames, and travel down the length of the HVAC duct work, even passing through filtration systems. ServiceMaster DSI will perform a thorough HVAC cleaning so your building doesn’t have the tell-tale lingering smell of smoke for weeks or months.
