SERVPRO Handles Commercial Fire Damage in Lake Stevens Office Breakroom
We can break down the fire damage in your Lake Stevens office.
An interesting statistic from the National Fire Protection Association reports just over 22% of fires in office properties began in the kitchen, breakroom or cooking area. One of the biggest mistakes made when there is a fire in a pan is throwing water on it which results in the fire becoming larger or in the case of a fire in a microwave, opening the oven door and allowing oxygen to feed the flames.
Handling commercial fire damage in a Lake Stevens office break room has extra stressors that residential fire loss mitigation does not carry. When a business must close for restoration efforts, it affects the revenue of the company and often livelihood of the employees who cannot come to work. Another curveball when dealing with commercial fire loss is that often water damage from either extinguishing efforts of the fire department or an overhead sprinkler system increase the restoration challenges.
Whenever we work on a property that needs our restoration services, we attempt to do the job with as little disruption as possible. In the case of a commercial fire loss, that is not always possible. Pack outs allow us to:
- Work on cleaning away water and smoke residues on furnishings and items
- Take items that are not smoke damaged out of the work area to avoid soot contamination
- Since we do not have to work around furnishings, this expedites the restoration process, especially when there is a combination of water and fire damage to clean up
During mitigation, charred building materials are cut away as they contribute only odor and have zero restoration potential. Because we hold General Contractor License #SERVPES871RD any necessary repairs or reconstruction to return the property to its preloss condition are completed after the fire debris cleanup and removal of soot and odors. This negates the need to source out a contractor for rebuilding and making it even longer until the business reopens.
