Fire Damage Restoration Professionals in Sacramento Describe How Smoke Issues Are Treated
If a fire breaks out in another building other than yours inside your Sacramento office complex, your unit could still get negatively affected. Problems that happen in units above, below, or next to yours can cause commercial fire damage inside your place of business. Smoke from fires in other parts of your building can get to your office by going through walls or entering through heating and ventilation systems. Any time smoke enters a structure, foul odors and soot residues can cause problems with materials and contents. During many commercial fire damage scenarios, soot cleaning and removal is a part of what our SERVPRO professionals can do to help save the structural components and contents inside your office.
As soon as you notice smoke entering your office unit from one adjacent to it, you should call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. The first step we take when arriving at any fire damage situation in Sacramento is to figure out which of your building materials and contents we can clean and which items we have to remove and replace. We accomplish this with a test cleaning kit. Included in this kit is a large variety of chemicals that are designed to clean off different types of soot residues from the various surfaces inside your structure. We also utilize different techniques so we know whether we can clean a surface or not and what combination of chemicals and methods to use.
Once we figure out the best techniques to use on each of your affected surfaces and give you an initial estimate, we begin treating any damage that we found during the original inspection. After all of your building materials and contents get cleaned we work towards deodorizing your office. To remove burnt smells, we can implement fogging machines that disperse chemicals into the air to mimic smoke or a hydroxyl generator that chemically neutralizes foul aromas.
If you ever see or smell smoke in your office, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438, 24 hours a day.
