Necessary Steps to Restore Normalcy after Commercial Fire Damage in Jacksonville

Managing the aftermath of a fire incident in a commercial establishment such as a law firm can be difficult, especially if you do not take the right steps. Such incidents cause immediate and long-term implications, so it is vital for the response plan to address both. In many cases, it is the simpler aspects of the damage like remnants of moisture from firefighting efforts or residues in concealed areas, that cause long-term problems.  

The loss of crucial documents during incidents of commercial fire damage in Jacksonville is highly likely. Even if fire resistant cabinets or fire suppression systems protect the documents from burning, water used in firefighting efforts or during the cleanup and restoration that follows often causes damage. Our SERVPRO technicians take measures that help protect against losses during the restoration phase. We freeze any documents affected by water to prevent further deterioration. We also take proper inventory of all materials in the affected areas to ensure we return them to their original location after restoration.  

As a fire burns, it deposits different residues including soot on surfaces all over the property. Removing these residues is not easy, but it is necessary for functional and aesthetic purposes. Cleaning may be difficult because of the characteristics of the surface. For example, grouts on tiled surfaces tend to retain some residues complicating the process. Large offices also mean vast areas to clean. Our SERVPRO team relies on various advanced tools such as handheld motor scrubbers, steam vapor cleaners and multi-surface scrubbers to ease the process.  

Drying the moisture left from firefighting efforts and cleanup process helps prevent future problems such as bad odor and mold. Apart from drying the office thoroughly, it is necessary to finish the drying process fast. Otherwise, problems like microbial growth can overtake the process. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment such as trailered-in desiccant dehumidifiers connected to a series of ducts to dry affected areas faster.
