SERVPRO Can Help Perform Commercial Fire Restoration in Your Falmouth Warehouse Effectively.

It is traumatic to see a fire threaten your Falmouth warehouse. After a fire, you need clear guidance and efficient fire damage cleanup to reduce business interruptions. SERVPRO can remediate the fire damage and repair your warehouse quickly.  

What process do you follow when remediating fire damage?

Our technicians can take several steps to perform commercial fire restoration in your Falmouth warehouse. We can begin the process as soon as possible to prevent additional damage from taking place. Our proven fire cleanup process includes:

    • Identifying the source of the fire to determine which type of fire occurred.
    • Inspecting the areas that sustained water damage because of fire suppression efforts.
    • Remediating water damage if necessary
    • Evaluating materials that smoke and soot particles have damaged.
    • Salvaging raw materials, product stock, machinery, and commodities.
    • Treating affected surfaces for smoke smells and sealing to prevent leftover smells from leaking back into the building.

The fire was not significant. Can I perform clean up myself?

The major consequence of a warehouse fire is damage to the building. If the warehouse was manned when the incident took place, the damage might not be significant. However, it is not advisable to attempt any self-cleaning without consulting fire restorers. It is crucial to pretest residues, choose the appropriate cleaning agents for the ruined surfaces or items, combine deodorizing agents with the right cleaning solutions, and use correct dilution rates to get the best results.

It is also necessary to identify the type of ruined surface to determine which cleaning products and methods are safe to use on the surface. Taking care to preserve the materials or surfaces one is cleaning, is also crucial because the cleaning process can ruin some materials, rendering them unrestorable. You also need special equipment to apply some chemicals. At SERVPRO, we have a wide range of industry-specific cleaning equipment and products that can provide you with the best chance of completely restoring your warehouse and salvageable contents. We are competent in performing repairs. Our general contractor's license number is CS-108357.

What should I do with non-salvageable items? 

Damage to the contents is a severe consequence of warehouse fires. We can try to salvage a majority of fire-damaged items. However, it is not possible to restore some items. We can remove the ruined item from the warehouse and determine what is ruined beyond repair and what we can salvage. Before throwing out things, take an inventory of all the damaged contents so that you can include them in your insurance claim.

After a fire loss, you need a company that can complete the restoration process quickly and effectively. Call SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands at (508) 888-5985 for assistance. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
