Turn to SERVPRO When You Incur a Commercial Fire to Your Business in Spokane

If you run a small business in Spokane, a top priority is protecting the physical structure to ensure that the doors remain open. And while there are numerous things that you'll need to protect your property against, commercial fire damage and natural disasters can be several of your most formidable foes. Luckily, there are numerous strategies you can take to maximize your prevention and recovery strategies. Following is an outline that may be of assistance.

Fire Damage

Fires can impose serious damage to your commercial property. Typically, there are three types of damage caused by the fires. First, the flames from the fire can destroy material items and undermine the structural integrity of your property. The smoke damage from a fire can cause substantive problems. Smoke is always accompanied by an odor, caused by burning of cellulose, and possibly also by soot. The residue known as soot is the by-product of specific types of combusted materials such as plastics and other non-cellulose products. Soot can be especially difficult to clean up and remove. Smoke can travel and permeate throughout a structure utilizing wall voids, electrical conduits, and a/c ductwork as travel paths. Secondary water damage is standing and absorbed water resulting from the action of the first responders. This water damage requires water extraction and drying to reduce moisture and humidity within your place of business. This will mitigate water and fire damage and help to suppress the potential of mold growth.

Fire Prevention

To prepare for a potential fire, you should create a disaster prevention plan. This plan will help you guard against fire damages as well as floods, and natural disasters. The best way to secure your small company against fire damage is to recognize potential hazards. The two most prevalent fire sources include lit candles and overloaded electrical lines. Take the steps necessary to prevent these two fire starters from becoming an issue for your business. You should contact your local fire marshall and obtain recommendations for fire prevention. And also gather information regarding how your company should respond to maximize safety and minimize fire damage to your Spokane business. Keep the contact information for SERVPRO, a premier commercial fire damage restoration company, close at hand to ensure an immediate response to any emergency than may transpire.

Fire Damage Recovery?

Although knowing how to prevent a fire is important, knowing how to react after the conflagration is very relevant to your business's ability to reopen. Draft a thorough, detailed fire damage recovery plan. This plan should include alternative locations to conduct business and the contact information for vendors, clients, employees, and SERVPRO.
