Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

COVID business project and remodels

6/1/2020 (Permalink)

During the COVID Pandemic we saw local businesses taking advantage of the closed time to update and remodel their places of operation. Projects that have no doubt been on the mind but when to execute is always a difficult choice to make. You do not want to interrupt business flow and operation.

In this case we had a local gym, they decided to do some sprucing up for reopening. They were staining wood planks for an industrial look. Some rags were left inside staining buckets, causing these rags to combust. Resulting in a small fire damage, the fire and smoke were substantial enough to set off the sprinkler system. This in turn affected the entire commercial building, two levels!

Our team came in and evaluated the entire building. We had thirteen employees go in to remove all affected materials and set equipment. Because of the size of this damage we used all hands-on deck and set multiple air movers, dehumidifiers to maintain the environment and prevent mold damage. Our team worked quickly, efficiently, and cohesively with the building owners and renters.

We were able to get this gym back to remodel mode after we mitigated the fire, smoke, and water damage. Not every remodel will lead to this conclusion, but it is important to know what could happen. Do your best to clean up thoroughly after each day of work and materials used. Check your workstation to make sure things are ready to go the very next day.

Here at SERVPRO we here to provide a source of prevention and awareness before you run into a potential damage.
