What Should Wilmington Business Owners Consider for Fire Restoration?
SERVPRO Helps Wilmington Commercial Properties Receive Necessary Fire Restoration and Repairs
Fire damage on commercial property, whether it stems from an electrical malfunction or cooking, can wreak havoc in unexpected places. Without professional intervention, these damages can leave odors, stains, and even potential corrosion or damage to metals and finishes.
SERVPRO teams implement rapid-response fire restoration for Wilmington businesses whenever they need it. They can respond quickly to late-night, weekend, and holiday calls to minimize commercial downtime. SERVPRO technologies, sanitation solutions, and techniques strive to salvage as much as possible after a fire.
What Wilmington Business Owners Can Do After a Fire
There are a few things that businesses can do after a commercial fire to streamline the restoration process:
- While SERVPRO can handle tasks like taking inventory and photographing damages, businesses and property managers are also advised to take photos after a disaster once it is safe to do so. Also, consider taking photographs of the property while there is no visible damage. Being able to compare the damage to its prior, loss-free state helps IICRC-certified technicians more successfully return it to a pre-disaster condition and streamlines claims filing
- Research contractors, and only choose professionals licensed for commercial repairs. Consult with property management, especially if contractors are asking for them to pull permits. Typically, licensed contractors can pull building permits themselves, and an inability to do this can indicate that the contractor lacks the necessary licensure to perform the work
- Business owners leasing commercial space should contact property management for building permits and any other paperwork that may be necessary for implementing structural repairs. SERVPRO requires permits to implement rebuilding services after performing fire and smoke damage mitigation
