Restaurant Fire Cleanup Services in Downtown Youngstown

3/23/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Restaurant Fire Cleanup Services in Downtown Youngstown Our trained professionals are ready to get you back in business following fire damage.

Smoke and soot are very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your business, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. Our company owner, Andrew Dobson, holds a Master Fire & Smoke Restoration Certification with the IICRC, and we have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damaged business and inventory.

5 Storm Essentials - Lowellville, OH

Storm Essentials

  1. Candles
  2. First Aid Kit
  3. Flash Light and Extra Batteries
  4. Battery Powered Radio
  5. Water Bottles & Packaged Food

It is extremely important to make sure there are candles available in your home at all times.

A first aid kit should always be in your home, whether it is to prepare for a disaster or just to treat common injuries.

Flash light and extra batteries are essential during a storm. Even though there might be candles available, the candles should be in one room to avoid a fire.

Normally it is challenging to predict how long the power will be out. This is where battery powered radios come in handy.

Water bottles and packaged food are also efficient in case of all household appliances not functioning.

If any damages occur after a storm due to water damage or in need of a cleaning service, call SERVPRO to minimize any inconvenience in your life and restore all of your damages back to "Like it never even happened."
