What Is the Difference Between Fire Restoration and Fire Remediation for My Falmouth Business?
Our Construction Specialists Go Beyond Mere Remediation to Fire Restoration of Your Damaged Falmouth Commercial Building
The first steps after a fire damages your Falmouth business include moving contents away from the most severely affected areas, firefighting water removal, soot evaluation and cleaning, debris cleanup, and deodorization. Sometimes this is enough to make your building whole, providing a space where your business can thrive, but not always.
What Happens When Fire Severely Damages and Makes Structural Materials Unsafe?
Not every blaze is caught before significant damage is done, and your Falmouth business needs fire restoration in addition to preliminary mitigation and remediation. We frequently see the following after a fire emergency, requiring some form of demolition, repairs, resurfacing, and rebuilding:
- Stairs, walls, and ceilings can collapse
- Floors and supporting structures can weaken, rendering them inadequate for weight-bearing
- Roofs and siding can burn through
- Fixtures can char beyond the ability of even a skilled technician to save
- Trapped fire fighting water can need release, necessitating flood cuts and weep holes
Why Is It Smart to Hire a Contractor Who Can Do It All After Commercial Fire Loss?
SERVPRO does not overextend our employees by taking on a fire restoration project start to finish. Instead, we streamline a complicated but interrelated process, ensuring our work crews assigned during each step of the process are highly-qualified in their specialties. You have plenty on your plate reassuring customers, employees, and vendors that your fire-damaged business is on the mend. Take acting as a general contractor off your to-do list. Allow our construction division to support our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) and Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) as needed, and then build back what was lost in the fire before handing the keys back.
Wrap-around fire mitigation and remediation through restoration are within the team's capability at SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, on-site promptly 24/7 after your call to (508) 888-5985.
