By following a few important steps, you can most easily and quickly overcome the damage and improve your property so that business operations can pick up where they left off.
The Issue of Water Damage
When you think about Miami commercial fire damage, you may not think about water damage. However, in most cases, water or chemical fire retardants are used by firefighters to extinguish the fire, and this means that there may be a dirty, ashy and wet material that covers much of the space. This must be cleaned up quickly because of the likelihood of water damage taking hold in the property. Also, when moisture and humidity levels remain high in a property, there is an increased likelihood that mold growth can develop. Therefore, the first step to take when you have commercial fire damage is to extract the water and chemical agents that were used to put out the fire.
The Repairing and Cleaning Processes
The next step in the fire damage repair process is to determine which items are salvageable and which items need to be replaced. Things like carpets and padding that have water or smoke damage may be professionally cleaned to restore them to their former condition. Items that have been burned may need to be entirely replaced and are not salvageable. This final determination is made by you and your insurance company.
