Things to Expect After a Fire Loss in a Commercial Building

Things to Expect After a Fire

If you experience a fire in your building, you know there will be a certain amount of destruction. What you may not consider is that there will be multiple types of damage after this kind of emergency. Water cleanup will often be necessary after a fire, along with everything else. Here are a few things that you can expect.

Fire Damage

Fire damage refers to the physical damage to a property as a result of burning. This damage is directly caused by the flames. Fire damage is one of the types of coverage offered in property insurance

Smoke & Soot Damage

Sometimes the damage caused by smoke can be more extensive than that caused by the fire itself. While the flames can be contained to a smaller area, smoke travels through the air, affecting a larger part of the building. It carries soot and contaminants with it, so smoke cleanup will be required to prevent long-term damage.

Water Damage

If the flames have become large enough that the fire department is needed to put them out, you will, unfortunately, be dealing with another type of damage entirely. Water damage from the hoses can flood the building, resulting in warped walls or flooring and potential mold growth if it is left to sit. Water cleanup should be performed as soon as possible to prevent this.

Loss of Business

Because a fire can affect the building in which you do business, you can lose profit if the damage is severe. However, if you are unable to work as usual during the fire cleanup process, business insurance may be able to cover your losses.
If you find that you need fire, smoke or water cleanup after a disaster, you should call an emergency restoration company. They will be able to begin the process quickly to get your business back to its previous condition, so you can continue work as usual.

Top 6 Causes of Commercial Water Damage

We know firsthand how disastrous commercial water damage can be, and how it can impact your business. Acting quickly to mitigate water damage is crucial, which is why it’s important for all businesses to know the common causes of commercial water damage, how to spot them, and what to do if you find signs of water damage in your office building or commercial property. 

Top causes of commercial water damage and how to handle them:

Broken or Damaged Pipes

Many factors could cause the pipes in your building to become damaged or even burst. For example, freezing temperatures and a change in pressure are just one of the many.  A few ways to tell if you have water damage due to pipe issues is if you notice water stains on your building’s walls, floors, or ceilings, cracked or loose tiles, or if you notice a musty smell in the area. If you find any of these signs, don’t wait, call a professional to help you find the root cause and help to stop the spread before further damage is done. Sometimes it can be difficult to identify the issue, which is why contacting a leak detection professional that uses water detection tools is crutial to making sure all sources of leaking pipes are discovered and fixed. 

Leaking Sprinkler Systems

Similar to damaged pipes, if there is a problem with your building’s sprinkler system, it could lead to leaks and water damage. Look out for wet walls and carpets, mold or a musty smell, or any standing water in your building. These clues could indicate an issue with your sprinkler system that should be addressed right away. Be sure to inspect your system often for potential leaks to help prevent damage. 

Damaged Roof 

Roof damage can be caused by extreme weather like heavy winds, rain or snowfall. It can also be caused by improper roof maintenance, missing shingles, or if an item such as a tree trunk fell on the roof and caused structural damage. A damaged roof will result in leaking water that may cause secondary damages to the ceiling such as mold damage. Be sure to regularly check your roof for signs of damage and provide maintenance as needed. 

Damaged HVAC System 

Maintaining a clean HVAC system is essential for keeping your commercial premises safe and comfortable for your employees and customers. Over time, HVAC ducts can begin to wear out or get damaged, which will lead to water leakage. In order to avoid these issues or spot them early, commercial HVAC systems should be regularly cleaned and maintained by a professional. 

Window Damage

Another common cause of commercial water damage is damage to the windows or their seals. Damaged windows or windows without a proper seal will allow moisture and water to seep into the building. Left unresolved, the excess moisture will lead to mold, warped or damaged wood, and more water damage. As part of routine building maintenance, make sure that the windows are sealed and not damaged, and that necessary caulking is reapplied occasionally since it will wear naturally with time. 

Severe Weather or Natural Disasters

Flash floods, hurricanes, thunderstorms, and more severe weather can of course cause significant damage to your property, including water damage. While you can’t prevent these natural disasters from happening, there are some precautionary steps you can take to make sure your commercial property is in good shape and is as prepared as possible for these events. Make sure that your property is equipped with a proper drainage system, and that the gutters are regularly cleaned and are clear of any debris and blockage. Also make sure to have a disaster response plan in place before a disaster strikes, to help make sure the issue is resolved as quickly as possible. 

Water intrusion, flooding, leaks, or water damage after a fire at a commercial building all come with an additional series of obstacles that differ from residential water damage. Since we know that these issues can be a risk for business to close temporarily while the issues are mitigated, timing is very important. However, the last thing you want to do is rush the job or not take the proper steps you need, or else it could end up taking even longer and causing further damage. That’s why partnering with the professional at SERVPRO of Bellflower can help you throughout the mitigation process effectively and efficiently.

Carpets are an important part of the office. Associated with luxury, carpets add aesthetic to an office. It could be a doctor's clinic, lawyer's office, boutique or any office. Carpets make the workplace look even more beautiful and add a touch of artistic quality. Moreover, good quality carpets can also help reduce noises.

However, if not cleaned and maintained properly, it can be huge turn-off for potential clients and employees. Generally, visitors to an office often judge the quality of the business by drawing first-time impressions, seeing the ambiance and cleanliness of the office. The condition of the carpets play a significant role in the building’s positive impression.

First-time impressions are more often than not the last impressions. The way you maintain your office space and its cleanliness says a lot about the way you conduct your business. An unclean, filthy carpet is indicative of a carefree attitude of an office.

Unclean carpets in offices not only affect the branding and business prospects of a company, but also affect the health of those around it. Carpets that are not cleaned regularly and well-maintained properly can lead to plenty of health problems such as allergy to bacteria, fungi and mites. Moreover, it causes degradation of the environment and affects the quality of air indoors.

Therefore, it makes sense to ensure that office carpets remain in pristine condition. Proper maintenance of carpets requires professional cleaning services that can remove filth, grime and deep accumulated dirt from carpets. SERVPRO of Bellflower commercial cleaning services has well-trained cleaning experts who use the latest techniques and environmentally friendly products to clean carpets.
