Could You be Making This Mistake When Dealing with Commercial Fire Damage in Oceanside?
Textile Cleaning for Oceanside Clothing Stores with Commercial Fire Damage
A high street retail clothes store is full of potentially flammable materials. A short-fusing circuit can be all it takes to trigger a property emergency. Electrical fires are reasonably common among commercial clients because stores typically run power through lighting, air-conditioning, or technology both day and, frequently, at night as well. A shop fire can leave behind smoke or soot damage on both the interior and the exterior of the structure. The transference of cold and hot air that occurs when materials combust creates pressure, which can force a trail of smoke out of the building and onto the exterior walls.
Our team holds substantial experience in commercial fire damage restoration here in Oceanside. We believe that communication is vital throughout the service as well as working on-time and on-budget. SERVPRO crew chiefs have training from the Institute of inspection, cleaning, and restoration certifications (IICRC) in ultra-specific aspects of fire restoration. These may include fire and smoke damage restoration technicians (FRST) as well as odor control technicians (OCT.)
There may be large amounts of clothing from your store that catches fire and is therefore non-salvageable. SERVPRO technicians can collect any debris from a fire site, seal it up and transport it to an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered waste facility. While clothes close to the fire may be materially damaged, many other fabrics or items of clothing sustain smoke, soot, and odor damage, which is often restorable. SERVPRO technicians can inventory clothing before sending them to our textile cleaning warehouse.
Textiles are porous by nature and can, therefore, take on massive amounts of soot or smoke damages during a fire. However, by using mechanical cleaning methods, SERVPRO can restore up to 99% of soils. Esporta washings work by suspending a fabric in place while powerful rotary jet washers clean it with water pressure, water-based solvents as well as deodorants. We often find that mechanical cleaning methods can be far more valuable to our clients than a single replacement payout.
