SERVPRO Prioritizes Methods That Help Maintain or Reinstate Operations Faster After a Fire

Whether you have a factory, hotel, or office, closing down even for a few days creates many challenges. You might fail to meet internal objectives or disappoint your clients. Even a small fire at your Plantation facility can force such closure if not properly damaged. 

The fire mitigation processes your Plantation facility needs to depend on its layout and the intensity of the fire. For any situation, SERVPRO can find simple ways to address it, allowing you to resume partial or complete operations. 

The mitigation steps that can help you sustain operations include:

  • Managing odors
  • Addressing Airborne materials
  • Pre-cleaning crucial areas
  • Identifying any hazards

The most apparent effect of a fire is the heavy soiling and deterioration of materials. However, it can also create hazardous situations. For instance, heat can melt electrical cable insulation, creating a risk of electrocution or damage to electrical equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians use circular checkers to confirm whether there are changes to the electrical flow in your facility so that you can plug in equipment safely.

The combustion process releases various materials, including:

  • Soot
  • Aerosols
  • Gasses

Some of these materials remain suspended in the air, diminishing their quality. Working, even in areas of your facility unreached by the fire, maybe impossible or uncomfortable when air quality is inferior. Our SERVPRO technicians use axial air movers to ventilate your facility, forcing the particulate-filled air out. We can also use noninvasive deodorization procedures such as masking agents or photocatalytic oxidizers to help minimize odors, thus improving comfort. 

The soils left on surfaces by smoke as it spreads all over the property make it difficult to use the facility. Instead of waiting for a complete cleanup, some critical areas can be pre-cleaned, thus restoring partial use. Our technicians can isolate such areas by setting up containment barriers to prevent re-soiling.

SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South looks for practical ways to handle fire mitigation, dispensing off an incident "Like it never even happened." You can reach us at (954) 776-2000.
