Professionally Administered Fire and Smoke Recovery in Goulding Is a Cornerstone of SERVPRO's Business Model
Steps that Streamline Recovery After Commercial Fire Damage Affects a Goulding Bookstore
If a fire starts in a bookstore, contents such as books and plastics in digital media can keep the flames alive for several hours. Even when the fire is controlled in time, extensive damages can still occur from the thick smoke the materials produce, the water used to quell the flames or actions by firefighters such as punching through walls to access the seat of the fire. We offer professional restoration in Goulding, streamlining the recovery process.
It is a positive outcome when an incident of commercial fire damage in a Goulding bookstore does not consume the entire structure. However, the restoration process is very involving, requiring time and resources to get the job done. Debris removal and sorting salvageable and unsalvageable materials are some of the tedious processes involved. Our SERVPRO technicians work faster by using electronic CCIS, Content Claim Inventory Service, which helps keep streamlined records, including where individual items were before restoration starts.
Protecting your bookstore from further damages is essential. Damages can be from weather elements or vandals who might take the fire incident as a chance to score free stuff from your store. Boarding up all exterior openings is a great way to do this. Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches to board up your property. We can use a coverall approach whereby we attach plywood panels to the surfaces around the opening. We can also cut the plywood to fit into the opening or use bolt-with-tension approach whereby the boards in the exterior are bolted to two-by-fours in the interior of the structure, thus offering better security.
Cleaning up the entire store is an essential part of the restoration process. The cleanup process might not be uniform because of the different materials in various parts of the structure. Floor materials such as tiles or concrete are easy to clean through processes such as pressure washing. Other materials such as acoustic ceiling tiles might present some challenges, especially since wet cleaning can damage them further. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized cleaning techniques such as peroxide active cleaning to deal with exceptional materials. We also have light and heavy-duty cleaning agents for various cleaning tasks.
Each fire loss situation is unique, which can hamper restoration. Call SERVPRO of West Pensacola at (850) 469-1160 to help run a streamlined recovery process. with our resources, we can make it, "Like it never even happened."
