As children, we were all warned not to play with fire. Why were our parents so concerned? Because fire is dangerous, aggressive, and unpredictable! It can destroy a field, a home, or a building in a matter of minutes. Fire is a living thing that consumes everything in its path. And once the flames are extinguished, the long and expensive cleanup process begins.
If your office or place of business has experienced a recent fire, damage is all but inevitable. Surfaces, structures, and objects that were not consumed by the flames may be saved, if you act quickly. Those noxious fumes that remain in your nostrils long after you leave the scene of a fire are the result of carbon deposits, i.e., smoke damage.
Any type of fiber or material, including those in your coaches, clothes, drapes, and rugs, soak them up like a sponge. It is incredibly difficult to clean an item that has been damaged by smoke, but it can be done. As long as it has not come in contact with direct heat, it may be possible to return an item to its pre-fire condition.
It really does depend. Every case is different, since fire is completely unpredictable. What we can do is evaluate each individual case. Only then will we be able to determine whether or not we can restore your belongings to their former glory. Our certified technicians never give our clients false hope or overly optimistic expectations. They will never promise the world if they cannot deliver. Our technicians do have years of experience in fire restorations for office buildings, hospitals, medical facilities, retail stores, and warehouses.
Depending on the damage, just about any item can be restored. This includes furniture, artwork, and personal possessions. Our goal is always to return any object we work on to its former condition. If that is not possible, we will immediately inform the client.
An office fire is one of the most frustrating and emotionally trying events any business owner can experience. We understand and appreciate this fact, which is why we help all of our clients with their insurance claims. Not only does this reduce the number of headaches, it also helps them get back to business ahead of schedule.
