The Unique Challenges of Commercial Fire Damage in a Tallahassee Warehouse
Not All Fire Damage is Created Equal- The Unique Challenges of Commercial Fire Damage in a Tallahassee Warehouse
Fires in commercial spaces such as a warehouse present many challenges to emergency and restoration crews. For instance, firefighters have to make forays deep into a building to access the seat of the fire. Restoration crews, on the other hand, have to remove significant amounts of debris and face additional challenges to restore normal operations at your Tallahassee warehouse.
Why the Cause Matters
The challenges faced when restoring commercial fire damage in a Tallahassee warehouse can trace back to the cause. Most cases of warehouse fires happen because of problems in the electrical distribution lines, heating systems, and in some cases, arson. Small fires in a warehouse quickly become uncontrollable blazes because of exposure of combustible materials. Such materials could include waste paper, wood, or even the products stored in the facility if they are highly combustible.
Vast Spaces Covered with Residues
After extinguishing the flames, other problems become apparent. Soot covered walls and roofing in the facility is one such problem. The massive size of these surfaces makes the task of cleaning them tough. Without the right resources, it can take a long time to restore normal conditions. Our SERVPRO technicians help tackle this problem in different ways. Our crews have self-propelled cherry pickers which ease access and movement when cleaning elevated surfaces. We also have pressure washers, which help remove residues from surfaces faster.
Safe Hazards during Restoration
The different materials burnt during the incident can leave noxious fumes and aerosols at the loss site. Contact through the skin or inhalation can cause different health effects. Our SERVPRO technicians counter such hazards with the use of PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, including full-body suits, respirators, and heavy-duty gloves during the restoration process. We can, therefore, work faster without exposing ourselves to risks.
After a fire affects your Centerville, Florida State University or Midtown Tallahassee warehouse, faster restoration should help your business resume normal operations more quickly.
