Cleaning Up Fire Damage to Lynn Office Buildings
Reaching Pre-Fire Damage Condition
After a fire, damages can widely impact your office building. Mitigation must begin immediately to start returning the property to preloss condition. Early inspections can help steer needed recovery work.
Job Scoping Helps Focus Restoration
SERVPRO must restore fire damage in Lynn offices quickly. Job scoping inspections use several inputs to create a complete restoration plan:
- Customer Input: The best way to return to original conditions is by understanding the state of the office before the incident. Property management can help.
- Visible and Trackable Damage: Tracking the migration of fire losses shows where restoration is needed now and where it will be required soon.
- Damaged Contents: Inspections determine how damaged contents, furniture, and other objects in the office have become.
What Are Pre-Damaged Conditions?
The term pre-damaged condition refers to the condition of the office before the fire. A common misconception is that restoration is intended to improve the overall shape of this impacted property beyond its original state, but this could be costlier and more challenging for the business beyond what is necessary.
Cleaning and Restoring Damaged Surfaces
Soot and smoke solids are a common byproduct of combustion, impacting many surfaces and contents throughout the office. From desks and shelves to heaps of debris on the carpeted flooring, restoring damaged surfaces is one of the direct measures to recover the property. We have several cleaning agents to help trap soils and allow for effective wet wipe cleaning.
Completing Structural Repair
The preloss condition can also mean repairing portions of the structure compromised by the fire. Combustion can completely engulf certain building materials, especially thin wall assemblies of the office. After cleaning up the debris and bulk materials, SERVPRO will replace these drywall panels and other construction elements.
The objective of fire restoration and cleanup for your office building is to return the structure to preloss condition. Our SERVPRO of Lynn / Lynnfield professionals can start this work as soon as we arrive. Call now at (781) 593-6663.
