How Our Experts Can Get You Prepared For Fire Damage In Your Andover Commercial Property
Andover's Commercial Fire Damage Experts Talk About Being Prepared For Disasters
Businesses that use heat during their day to day operations such as your Andover bakery are at high risk of suffering a structural fire. When working around several heat sources accidents can happen that can cause extensive commercial fire damage. The statistics show that there are over 5,000 restaurant fires reported to fire departments each year. These fires result in fewer than five deaths, around 100 injuries, and $116 million in property damage per year. Having an emergency action plan as well as designating a company like SERVPRO as your restoration contractor can help your commercial fire damage project go much more smoothly.
Being prepared for disasters is important when running a business. When you establish SERVPRO as your restoration contractor, we will be more prepared to help you when you find yourself in a commercial fire damage situation in Andover. As a part of the process, we come into your business ahead of time, and we determine where important things we may need access to in the building are such as electricity and water shutoffs. We also get all of the chains of command and contact information that we need to get approval to start mitigation work immediately.
If a fire does ignite inside your bakery, we will respond promptly and already know whom to contact to get work approval right away. We then will start by making sure the affected building is safe for all occupants. If there are any hazards, we mitigate them if we can or block off the area so that nobody is at risk.
Next, we begin an initial estimate where we determine what building materials and contents have been destroyed and which ones we can save with cleaning and deodorization. To do this, our SERVPRO estimators bring with them a test cleaning kit that they use to test clean different surfaces to judge cleanability. The initial estimate details what we know will need to be replaced and what items we think we can restore and save. If you ever have a fire start inside your bakery, call SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County at (763) 712-9712 24/7.
