Professional Cleanup After a Commercial Fire

Unlike homes that usually just have a smoke alarm, most commercial buildings feature some type of fire suppression system as well as a fire sprinkler system. When a utility room fire or an electrical fire breaks out, the fire sprinkler system will kick in and put it out. A fire suppression system uses a type of material designed to put the flames out and to keep the flames from spreading. Once the fire truck arrives and workers use a fire hose to extinguish the flames, property owners will need to know how to take care of the commercial fire damage after getting approval to get back inside from a firefighter.

One of the first things a fire damage company will do after getting to the scene of the fire is a full inspection. They want to know how severe the fire was, what they can do to get the building ready for tenants or customers again and how to handle any other issues. These experts will find the source of an electrical fire or a utility room fire and take steps to keep a second fire from breaking out. A firefighter working for a local department can help with this step.

Soot Damage Cleanup

Soot damage cleanup is especially important because the soot can make the smoky odor in the building smell even worse. Fire restoration professionals use cleaning supplies to remove the thick soot from the walls and floors. They use products that regular people do not have access to and products that will keep the soot damage from spreading as they clean. Most building owners will notice thicker or darker soot damage near the source of the fire, but this damage may be visible all the way through the building.
