SERVPRO Secures Brooklyn Stores after Fire Damage

The number of hours or days your facility is open can go a long way in determining whether your venture succeeds or fails. An incident such as a fire that causes significant soiling and damages utilities can force unnecessary closure of your Brooklyn facility as you look for solutions. Finding a way to conduct fire restoration without closing the premises would be a great advantage.

The actions you take to facilitate fire restoration at your Brooklyn premises mainly depend on the extent of the fire. The damage may be restricted to the surfaces or extend deeper into the structural setup. Surface problems are easier to resolve, unlike structural-related issues such as charred frames or roof cave-ins. Regardless of the situation you face, SERVPRO looks for convenient solutions.

Ways to minimize closure after fire

  • Partial content move-outs
  • Securing property with a board-up and containment
  • Using deodorizers such as masking agents

The inconveniences or limitations that the fire creates necessitate operations closure. The issue can be intangible such as the presence of pungent odor, or it can be a physical limitation that hinders your operations, such as a shattered window or a hole in the roof. Taking action that addresses the specific limitation can help you resume your operations faster. Our SERVPRO technicians can place a masking agent to counteract pungent odor even as we pursue long-term solutions such as cleaning up the affected areas. Sealing openings by boarding them up or installing roof tarps is also helpful.

Viable ways to limit fire odors

  • Odor counteracting beads
  • Deodorant pellets or granules
  • Water-based odor counteracts

Handling Affected Contents

Contents are affected by different aspects of fire, including smoke, heat, and direct exposure to flames. Finding a way to deal with the affected items creates an opportunity to use the rest of the facility if the fire is limited. Our SERVPRO technicians can help with partial or complete move-outs. We have hand carts and lifting straps for easier movement of bulky materials, and we also provide temporary storage facilities on site.

SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn can help keep your operations running as you handle fire restoration procedures. Call us at (718) 522-4400 for assistance. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
