Bring in SERVPRO Fire & Smoke Restoration Teams

People are returning to the beaches. Every business along the shore is essential when it provides goods from ice to sunhats and everything else in between. Getting your doors reopened quickly after a fire is important to stay open permanently; especially now.

How are you going to do that without tearing up my business?

With sprinkler systems in even small gift shops, most commercial fire damage in Seal Beach businesses is from smoke and soot. In some cases, water used to stop the fire can result in more damage than from the heat and flames. Our Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRTs) train extensively on:

  • Removing smoke and soot particles
  • Odor elimination
  • Water removal
  • Furniture and fabric restoration

Once fully trained, FSRTs can restore most businesses without further damage.

Where do SERVPRO teams begin?

If there is any standing water, we first remove it. Doing this stops any on-going damage and reduces the chance of additional problems. It also makes the business safe to work in and for the owner and insurance, adjusters to enter for inspections. With careful use of pumps and extraction wands, FSRTs can clear small businesses in a few days.

After water removal, our technicians begin wiping down and cleaning every affected surface. If the fire burned quick and hot, most of the particles are dry and powdery and technicians can remove them with sponges, brushes, and a small amount of cleaning agent. For slower burning fires with lower heat, particles are stickier and harder to remove. Our personnel uses stronger cleaners with stiff brushes and vacuums to remove them.

What about my inventory?

SERVPRO technicians use the same cleaners and tools to restore t-shirts and other souvenirs. They also wipe down items like drink cans and bottles so they can be safely sold.

No matter how small your fire may have been, call SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress at (562) 431-9400 for restoration. We are here for you.
