Professional Fire Damage Restoration For Mt Airy Businesses
SERVPRO Strives to Mitigate Damages Caused by Water, Smoke & Fire to Your Commercial Establishment
The Mt Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia features many small independently owned businesses and dining establishments. Spreading out from Germantown Avenue over the last century and a half, the historic buildings house bookstores, offices, retail and coffee shops, art galleries, bars, and restaurants. Our well-trained fire damage crews dispatch quickly to respond to fire damage at any of this unique area’s commercial properties.
A blaze in any of these local gems not only puts commerce at risk, but it also threatens to alter the charm and history of the Mt Airy neighborhood. Fire damage need not be the end of your business nor the loss of a priceless landmark when we answer the call. Multiple fire restoration strategies combine into a coherent plan devised by our crew chiefs and reconstruction manager to address the damage done by charring, smoke, and soot, often while permitting your business to continue operations on at least a limited scale.
When the SERVPRO crew arrive at the fire scene, we assess for safety and damage. Because water from sprinkler systems and other firefighting efforts is usually present, we turn our attention first to its removal and add drying to our list of tasks. As devastating as fire damage can be, water damage is just as serious, causing progressive deterioration if not managed fast. Slip and fall accidents and concerns about electrical shock are minimized when we pump out and extract the water first, including from the dozens of nooks and crannies common in older buildings.
Smoke and soot also rapidly damages almost every material, from organic surfaces such as wood to synthetics such as plastics. Our fire damage work crews attend IICRC training to learn how to characterize soots as dry or wet, or protein or fossil fuel-based. Each type responds better to a particular cleaning protocol, and we are sure to use the specialized products, tools, and equipment always available loaded on our big green SERVPRO service vehicles that match the soiling we find on structural components. We can pack out the movable contents of your business for a range of water and soot damage cleaning and restoration efforts at our production site. Professional assessment by our experts results in many a “ruined” window covering, document, or other portable artifact being restored “Like it never even happened.”
Charring can respond to restoration efforts like deep cleaning, brushing, and sanding. Our SERVPRO reconstruction teams have the skills to repair and replace structures too damaged to function after cleaning. We strike a balance on every job, with restoration our focus to save costs and time, getting you back to business faster, but are pleased to offer suggestioned contractors for rebuilding and repairs if indicated.
