3 Unique Features of a Partial Loss Fire
Three Characteristics of a Partial Loss Fire
Commercial fires happen every day in the U.S. These events are always traumatic for business owners and managers and indeed anyone associated with the company. This is even true if no injuries or fatalities occur. In a total loss fire, the emphasis is on a rebuild of the property in Mission Bay, FL, but in a fire loss that results in only partial damage, the focus takes on a different look in certain regards.
1. Dealing With Smoke Damage
Smoke from a business fire can permeate the walls, ceilings, furniture, electrical systems and flooring of a building. Porous surfaces absorb smoke, making them difficult to completely clean, thereby requiring special cleaning methods. Some of the fire loss damage is visible, while other impacts reside in the lingering smells. The services of a trained and certified fire mitigation team are often necessary to treat damage from smoke.
2. Concentrating on Fire Restoration
Every fire is unique, but flames tend to damage the structures of a building to some extent. This calls for the rebuild of walls, ceilings, roofs and other building components. It could even require the restoration of electrical systems. The contractor performing the work should restore the building to a uniform and consistent look that is in harmony with the rest of the building.
3. Working With Insurance
A partial loss fire often calls for more contact with the insurance company. The adjuster might be involved in decisions on what items are salvageable and which ones need to be replaced. While it tends to be less expensive to clean and save items, that is not always the case. It is also important in the cleanup stage that all hidden damage from the fire is addressed.
A partial fire loss from a commercial fire has many complex moving parts. Professional restoration is best undertaken by a reputable mitigation company.
