Commercial Fire Damage Technicians In Hollywood
Commercial Fire Damage Technicians
Kitchens in Hollywood are a common place for fires to start. If a fire ever takes place inside your Hollywood restaurant, it could inhibit business operations. Not only can fires burn materials and contents but smoke can travel from the kitchen and affect your dining room.
Smoke coming from a fire can cause many problems that if not mitigated can disrupt business in the future. Whenever mitigating commercial fire damage in Hollywood, soot cleaning and deodorization are vital. Smoke can travel far from the source of the blaze and leave behind soot residues, soils, and malodor particles.
If not treated appropriately smoke can leave behind unpleasant aromas that can affect your restaurant business in the future. There are many steps needed to properly restore a building so that no burnt smells exist. The first step is to remove any burnt or charred material that puts off malodor particles into the air. Any severely burnt contents or building materials that are near the kitchen where the fire started get removed.
After everything that cannot be saved gets removed, the cleaning of soot residues begins. Soot left behind from smoke also creates pungent odors. Some surfaces are easier to clean soot off of than others. Soot that adheres to different surfaces is composed of various chemicals based on the type of fuels burned during the blaze.
Our SERVPRO technicians use various chemicals based on the type of soot and the kind of surface affected. Porous surfaces do not clean thoroughly with wet cleaning methods because the moisture can soak the soot into the material. Wallpapers and drywall get cleaned best using dry cleaning methods. Whereas, non-porous materials such as the stainless steel inside your restaurant's kitchen can get cleaned by spraying and wiping with wet cleaning agents.
Whenever soot cleaning takes place, measures get taken so that the cleaning process does not cause secondary damage or inhibit your restaurant's business. With wet cleaning, we put down plastic on the floors and make sure that streaking does not cause more damage. Any areas where food gets served get masked off with plastic.
In some cases, we change the way we conduct work processes so that your business stays operating as usual and your loss of revenue is kept to a minimum. For professional help when a fire affects your business, call SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484.
