When it comes to fire damage restoration for commercial properties, here at SERVPROof El Cajon, we follow a comprehensive process to address the various aspects of damage and restore the property to its pre-fire condition. Here's an overview of how we approach fire damage restoration for commercial properties:

  1. Emergency Response and Assessment:
    • We respond quickly to mitigate further damage and assess the extent of the fire damage. We prioritize safety and may board up windows, tarp roofs, or secure the property if necessary.
  1. Damage Assessment and Planning:
    • Our experienced technicians evaluate the damage to the structure, contents, and systems within the commercial property. Based on their assessment, we have developed a comprehensive restoration plan tailored to the specific needs of the property.
  1. Water Removal and Drying:
    • Water damage is common after firefighting efforts. We employ industrial-grade equipment to extract water, dry out affected areas, and prevent secondary damage such as mold growth.
  1. Smoke and Soot Removal:

    • We offer content cleaning and restoration services to salvage items affected by fire and smoke damage. We also use advanced cleaning methods to restore furniture, documents, electronics, and other belongings whenever possible.

    • We coordinate repairs and reconstruction to restore the commercial property to its pre-fire condition. This may involve rebuilding damaged structures, replacing flooring and drywall, and refinishing surfaces.
  1. Odor Removal and Air Quality Improvement:
    • Lingering smoke odors can persist even after visible damage has been addressed. SERVPRO® employs various techniques such as ozone treatment, thermal fogging, and air scrubbing to eliminate odors and improve indoor air quality.
  1. Documentation and Insurance Assistance:
    • Our team assists property owners with documenting the damage, filing insurance claims, and communicating with insurance adjusters throughout the restoration process.
