What is commercial fire damage restoration?
The aim of commercial fire damage restoration is to thoroughly clean all areas of a business or commercial property that have been affected by the fire. This includes eliminating persistent smoke odors, soot, and residual water from the premises. To achieve this, specialized equipment such as air scrubbers can be used to clear airborne particulates and smells while industrial fans and dehumidifiers help dry out any remaining moisture caused by putting out the blaze. The sooner these actions are taken after a fire has occurred on the premises, the less damage and loss will occur.
Fire Damage Repair Specialist
The aftermath of a fire can be devastating for your home. After the flames have been extinguished, there will likely remain debris, damage and materials that must be removed before any restoration efforts can begin. ServiceMaster Restore evaluates the extent of destruction caused by the fire as well as what was used to extinguish it in order to commence our clean up and repair services. Even rooms not directly affected may experience residual damage from smoke, ash or water if left untreated; these compounds continue to spread throughout a structure which is hazardous for your health. To combat all aspects of this problem - including smoke and soot removal - you need professional help at every stage: only ServiceMaster Restore has both knowledge and expertise necessary along with access to appropriate tools required for successful completion of such projects.

Our Process for Commercial Fire & Smoke Damage Clean-Up
It’s not just what is burned that needs to be restored. Fires can result in other extensive damage as a result of the smoke and the process of putting out the fire. Smoke damage can spread throughout your building to areas not affected by the actual fire and the sprinkler system in your building can cause damage to your walls, floors, and belongings.
Other fire damages that could affect your business include:
- Ash and smoke can continue to cause damage and corrosion to materials left behind.
- Smoke and soot residue remain on surfaces long after the fire and continue to cause problems until they are removed.
- Within minutes, walls, equipment, surfaces, and other areas can be discolored.
- Smoke causes etching in glass and will tarnish metal quickly.
Not all commercial fire damage is the same. Our thorough, proven fire restoration process includes:
- Inspecting the structural integrity of the building for safety
- Identifying the source to determine the type of fire that occurred
- Evaluating all areas that suffered water damage as a result of fire suppression efforts to identify those that may need treatment
- Remediating water damage (if any)
- Evaluating sensitive materials that may be damaged as a result of smoke and soot particles
- Removing contents from the building
- Collecting immediate items you may need to operate your business remotely
- Securing removal, storage, and cleaning of sensitive files and data storage devices
- Salvaging of product stock, raw materials, commodities, and machinery
- Packing out the remaining contents for cleaning and storage
We perform structural restoration, including:
- Removing any charred contents that may seal in smoke, such as insulation and burned wood
- Evaluating carpets and floor coverings that may need to be removed
- Treating affected surfaces for smoke odors and sealing to keep any leftover odors from leaking back into the building
- Cleaning, eliminating odors, and deodorizing surfaces to pre-loss condition
- Returning items to the original location and helping to restore your normal operation
Smoke continues to destroy your structure and its contents even after the fire is out. Smoke that has coated or penetrated surfaces continues to affect the chemical composition of fabrics, metals, walls, ceilings, and tile.
