SERVPRO Can Handle Any Size Fire Damage Cleanup in a Champaign/Urbana Business

One of the biggest post-fire cleanup concerns property owners have is regarding the time frame needed for restoration before reopening. SERVPRO technicians can estimate the downtime necessary to enable a safe reopening for the business.

The odors left behind after fire damage in a Champaign/Urbana business can be significant; because soot can be caustic to surfaces and airborne particles can cause issues, it is crucial to get them removed before reopening.  SERVPRO technicians have a multi-layered approach to fire clean-up, which includes:

  • The use of professional cleaning agents on surfaces
  • Controlled demolition techniques as needed
  • Odor control applications to remove fire scents from the structure and contents

SERVPRO techs have different types of fire odor removal processes depending on the part of the business getting treated. Hydroxyl generators are beneficial for eradicating airborne particulates that cause pungent odors. This method of odor control is safe for use around people and plants. When the technicians use thermal fogging to neutralize odors, the building needs to be cleared of people, and the technician wears protective clothing. The heated solutions permeate porous items such as reception area furnishings and carpet, where it latches onto smoke molecules and eradicates them. 

SERVPRO of Champaign/Urbana has the training and experience to handle any size fire damage mitigation in commercial properties. The technicians work fast and efficiently to get your business back to, "Like it never even happened."
