My Self-Storage Facility Has Fire Damage. Who Do I Call for Help?
Contact SERVPRO to Deal With the Commercial Fire Damage in Your Largo Self Storage Facility
Many self-storage facilities are constructed with metal and concrete. Some owners believe their facilities cannot sustain extensive damage after a fire, but this is not always the case. The intense heat a fire produces can cause concrete to crack and metal to distort, resulting in permanent structural damage to your Largo self-storage facility.
What sort of destruction can I expect to see in my self-storage facility?
Commercial fire damage in a Largo self-storage facility can be significant. Self-storage facilities allow their customers to empty contents from their homes, businesses, and garages and store them at the property. Even though you may have protected your facility with a written contract, stipulating that tenants should not keep hazardous materials, things like paint and flammable home cleaning products can find their way there. Other items that can contribute to the severity of fire include:
Boxes full of old documents
The embers that ignite the contents of one storage unit could cause significant destruction to your facility. Many fires that happen in such facilities go undetected for a while until a facility manager or tenant sees flames or smoke billowing from within the structure. The unit can be in full blaze when the firefighters arrive. They often use water and flame retardant to extinguish fires, which can cause more damage to your facility. Smoke can also ruin the structure and its contents.
What can SERVPRO do to restore my self-storage facility?
We can examine the extent to the damage and identify what we can or cannot salvage. Our expertise enables us to respond to the different challenges created when smoke residues and smells affected different materials and surfaces. We can use different methods to agitate surfaces. Agitation means moving the surfaces we are cleaning, moving the cleaning solutions, or both. Our SERVPRO team uses agitation to dislodge or free soils. We also use different products to produce chemical reactions and different cleaning techniques to eliminate residues. The basic principles we follow when cleaning smoke residues are:
Find the residues.
Identify their type.
Identify the type of surfaces they are on.
Capture the residues in solution or in dry particulate form.
Eliminate the residues.
Dispose of them properly.
Do you perform reconstruction work?
