Commercial Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration in OH
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Process
It's vital that fire restoration is done quickly following fire damage. Within hours if possible. While the cleaning process should not begin until its verified that there is no further damage by professionals like ServiceMaster by Disaster Recon, it is still important to have experts on the scene quickly.
Mold damage can begin in as little as 24 hours after saturation of building materials. This damage can affect all organic surfaces and can be much more expensive than the fire damage itself. Waiting even a single day to begin can greatly compound the damage, cost, and restoration time needed.

- 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, including:
- 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.

Smoke damage removal and restoration
Smoke is probably the most effective way to quickly soil just about every surface of your commercial building, short of inviting a dozen preschoolers to lunch. While smoke and soot damage often occurs because of a fire, it can also stem from other causes like a malfunctioning heating appliance or flue spewing fuel-oil soot.
Unlike water leaks and flooding, damage due to smoke is not confined to low-lying areas. Hot smoke travels to cool areas. It also rises to levels above the source of the smoke, such as from the basement to the first and second floor. Often, plumbing chases and HVAC ducts serve as the conduits for getting from one floor to the next.
