Mitigative actions in Somerset office buildings overcome significant hurdles in resuming operation after a fire.

Offices and commercial structures operate safe environments for their employees and customers. When disasters like fire losses impact these facilities, it is up to experienced restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team to manage the pressing concerns and mitigate damages as thoroughly as possible. Our roster of technicians is available 24/7 to help with various post-fire cleanup needs.

Soot and Smoke Debris 

To manage fire damage in Somerset offices, one of the first obstacles that must be overcome is soot and smoke debris. Not only can certain types of soot damage be carcinogenic and health-hazardous, soils prevent the proper operation of the building and its equipment until the residues and smoke damage get resolved. Some of the removal techniques for soot include:

  • Wet cleaning
  • Dry cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition

Content and Structure Damage

Furniture, equipment, and fixtures can all be compromised by the presence of smoke and fire damage. Through efforts like content relocation and structural repairs, we can provide the needed attention for the building to get you up and running again. 

Water Damage and Pooling

Water suppression to quell the spreading blaze during the disaster can also leave behind wet areas for professionals to contend with during restoration. Initially, pooling can be addressed with light wands, squeegee wands, and wet vacuums. 

Harsh Malodors Lingering

Combustion aerosolizes solids and particles, which can contribute to severe malodors present around the office. Even with much of the soot and residues cleaned up, deodorization requires specific tools and products in our inventory to neutralize offensive smells attributed to the fire disaster.

There are multiple obstacles preventing businesses from staying open after a structure fire. Our experienced SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County team can help mitigate and restore after disasters. Call today at (908) 259-6603.
