Understanding Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

The goal of commercial fire damage restoration is to thoroughly clean all areas of a business or commercial property impacted by the fire. This includes eliminating persistent smoke odors, soot, and residual water from firefighting efforts. Specialized equipment like air scrubbers are used to clear airborne particulates and smells, while industrial fans and dehumidifiers help dry out any remaining moisture. The sooner these actions are taken post-fire, the less damage and loss will occur.

Grand Rapids' Fire Damage Repair Specialists

The aftermath of a fire can leave a trail of debris, damage, and materials that must be removed before restoration can begin. ServiceMaster Restore assesses the extent of the fire damage and the materials used to extinguish it before beginning our clean up and repair services. Even areas not directly affected by fire may experience residual damage from smoke, ash, or water if left untreated; these compounds continue to spread throughout a structure which is hazardous to the health of you and your employees. To tackle all aspects of this problem - including smoke and soot removal - you need professional help at every stage: ServiceMaster Restore has the knowledge, expertise, and tools required for successful completion of such projects.

As a local commercial restoration company with over 65 years of experience, ServiceMaster Restore has been helping Grand Rapids business owners repair, rebuild, and return to normalcy. Our disaster cleanup company uses the best techniques without compromising quality. We understand the stress of this time and look forward to supporting you throughout the process.

Our Process for Commercial Fire & Smoke Damage Clean-Up in Grand Rapids

Fire damage extends beyond what is burned. Smoke and the process of extinguishing the fire can cause extensive damage. 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 Grand Rapids 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.

Our thorough, proven fire restoration process in Grand Rapids 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
