SERVPRO Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Plans

Fire is one of the most devastating situations to a business and commercial property. It causes billions of dollars in property loss and damage as well as personal injuries and fatalities every year. This is why knowing what to do before and immediately after a fire, as well as organizing a commercial fire damage restoration plan can minimize further damage and costs.

Every problem has a cause and many of the fires that come up in commercial buildings are through something that is unnoticeable. By knowing the most common causes of commercial fires, you can take all proper precautions to protect your business, employees, and property.

Let’s take a look at some of these common causes

  • Cooking-related incidents at Restaurants. These are not the only establishments that have encountered destructive fires. Healthcare facilities, educational institutions, offices, and stores have also experienced fires due to cooking-related incidents. 
  • Heat equipment. Many commercial buildings require concentrated  heat depending on the climate or project requirements. You need to regularly check boilers, furnaces, and other heating-related equipment to avoid any overheating. You also need to have your HVAC systems maintained by professionals regularly and replace old HVAC appliances.
  • Electrical connections. Check for old, faulty, or loose electrical connections-everywhere. Hire a specialist to check on your electrical and lighting equipment regularly and repair/replace.
  • Smoking. Discarded lit cigarettes are serious fire hazards. You may designate smoking areas in open spaces away from the building and provide proper disposal units for used cigarettes and cigars.
  • Arson. The deliberate misuse of a heat source, as well as many other- It is considered arson if there is a willful and malicious intent of setting a fire. 

    What exactly is a Fire Restoration Plan?

    After a fire is put out, several critical concerns will remain. Business owners face huge costs in property damage and may even face more costs without a proper fire damage restoration plan. As a business owner, you may be asking yourself,  “What is a fire restoration plan?”

    A commercial fire damage restoration plan through SERVPRO of Bloomington/Pontiac organizes the process of returning a fire-damaged property to a preloss condition. 

    It can be terribly complicated and overwhelming.  This is especially since business owners may still be recovering from the shock of such significant losses from the fire. Affected business owners can be ready with a plan that includes Matterport scans, phone numbers, details and anything you could need-all ready ahead of time. Since restoration activities need to be done as soon as possible to minimize further damage, working SERVPRO would help this process move quicker. Restoration specialists can start right away with the recovery process to help bring the business back to its regular operations.
