Restoration after Commercial Fire Damage in a Crested Butte Gift Shop
SERVPRO Technicians Tackle BOTH the Visible and Olfactory Signs of Damage
Fires happen all the time with many extinguished when discovered soon after they begin. Damage increases, of course, when a fire burns longer and spreads out in a widening area. Knowing what substances and materials burned is also critical to any restoration task.
Gift shops in Crested Butte that experience commercial fire damage often have difficult-to-replace seasonal stock. Our technicians are IICRC-certified Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and understand the complexities involved in every aspect of restoring fire-damaged structures, interior furnishings, and inventory. From our initial assessment, we answer questions and inform our customers about the processes and equipment needed to complete the job.
Cleaning inventory items so they are restored to a saleable condition, removing grime and soot from all surfaces, replacing charred and blackened materials, and eliminating errant soot particles from the air happens during many jobs involving businesses impacted by a fire. Soot can be visible in large amounts, but it slowly disintegrates over time. As it does this, odors become more pronounced. Just like visible fire damage requires elimination for a building to look “Like it never even happened,” elimination of foul odors must occur, also.
However, because fire damage normally leaves that distinct and offensive odor behind, customers might wonder what is causing the burned penetrating smell. Professionals with experience in mitigating fire damage know that odors from burned items are gauged differently by each person.
While this might seem to make the task of complete restoration after any size fire next to impossible, for the qualified professional, odor elimination is part of fire damage restoration. We have the ability to measure how concentrated soot particles are in an area and work to reduce these to almost zero. In some locations in your shop, these may be isolated pockets that hold onto soot particles. We have other methods that can control these problem spots adequately.
Every business in our area is of particular significance to our community – both socially and economically. Restoring each one after a disaster such as fire damage is a task to which we are highly committed.
