What is Commercial Fire Restoration?

Commercial Fire Restoration involves assessing the damaged property for safety.

This could include adding temporary fencing, boards over windows and bracing the structure for security.

After the initial assessment, next steps will include assessing water damage and structural drying. Water damage from sprinklers or fire hoses can cause further damage to your property, it is important to dry out the water and prevent the growth of mold. A professional restoration company will also be able to handle water damage and mold mitigation during the restoration process.
