Special Challenges Cleaning Up Commercial Fire Damage in a Raleigh Warehouse

A warehouse is the backbone of a business. When it receives fire damage, the result is operations grind to a halt. The majority of warehouses store stock, and soot and smoke damage bring additional loss if not adequately mitigated. 

SERVPRO technicians carefully inspect the commercial damage to a Raliegh warehouse before beginning the cleanup process. It is crucial to test various smoke residues to determine the best cleaning methods as well as perform any water extraction left behind by fire extinguishing efforts to halt any further water damage occurring. 

Limit Loss to Stock 

The goal of technicians on a fire loss cleanup is always to reduce loss through their restoration methods. Stored merchandise receives inspection and removal in an organized pack out for storage. This action prevents the likelihood of contamination by soot or smoke residues during mitigation. SERVPRO's pack-out service is a way to move out stock and furnishings to a safe, secure environment until the completion of restoration efforts. 

Cinderblock is Often Restorable from Smoke Damage

Because of the porous nature of cement blocks, it absorbs smoke residues quickly with the result of staining and odor. Technicians use mild acid-based cleaners to lift away the smoke damage and wipe the blocks clean. 

Ductwork Inspected and Cleaned, If Needed

Running the HVAC after a fire loss spreads soot and odors throughout the property. After the cleanup and restoration process completes for the business, technicians inspect the ductwork for signs of cross-contamination. If found, they thoroughly clean the ductwork and also the HVAC. 

Flooring Requires Special Attention

Rubber safety mats are a common feature in a warehouse with cement flooring. If they are damaged by smoke, they have the potential for residue removal and cleaning with specially formulated solutions that are suitable for use on rubberized products to clean without damaging the object. SERVPRO technicians test each item before cleaning for color-fastness, shrinkage potential or other aspects so they utilize the restoration method with the potential for the best outcome.
