SERVPRO Streamlines Fire Damage Mitigation in Fort Lee Countering Any Challenges

Fire has a far-reaching impact on any property, especially in Fort Lee commercial establishments. Forced closure, even for a limited period, is a common outcome, whether the incident is a major or minor one leading to loss of revenue. Fire damage restoration should help fix deteriorated items and resume normal operations.

Fire damage restoration in a Fort Lee establishment involves many procedures to counter the different problems that the fire creates. The items in the affected areas influence the processes you have to complete. When our SERVPRO technicians inspect the loss site, we determine what we can do at the premises and what may require the assistance of a specialist.

Procedures vary when handling:

  • Electronic equipment
  • Wooden or metal furniture
  • Upholstery and draperies

Computers, printers, and other electronics are typical items in any business facility. A fire can affect them directly by burning some components or indirectly by creating unfavorable conditions.

Electronics are readily damaged when the fire burns their outer shells since most are made from plastic and composite materials. Even when items are untouched by flames or heat, you cannot rule out damage since the infiltration of smoke residues in the interiors can cause short circuits or corrosion. Our SERVPRO IICRC-certified crews can pre-clean your items and then send them to a specialist for restoration.

Fire stains and blemishes

Fire causes significant deterioration to the physical appearance of materials. Such damage can arise from the intense heat that breaks down the material leaving carbon residue. Alternatively, the chemicals and residue deposited by smoke can stain surfaces. 

Common reasons for staining 

  • Residues settling on surfaces for long
  • Using the wrong cleaning method
  • Unusual residues such as wet smoke

Staining and other issues that change the visual appeal of materials can be prevented or reversed. Our SERVPRO technicians use different cleaning methods, starting with a dry process such as vacuuming or feather-dusting to ensure loose residues do not penetrate materials when subjected to wet cleaning. 

SERVPRO of Fort Lee handles fire damage restoration based on what you have at the premises. Call us at (201) 496-6024 for well-timed assistance. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
