Commercial Fire Damage In Fort Collins Requires Fast Action To Minimize Loss

When you have commercial fire damage in a retail store, the key to lessening the loss is to get professional help for the cleanup as soon as possible after the event. We understand that when your business cannot be open, it causes hardship and our staff works as quickly as possible to get your business back on track.

Commercial fire damage in a Fort Collins retail store often has multiple layers for our technicians to address. First, there is the fire damage, then residue from a fire extinguisher, and finally odor left behind. When a fire is limited to a single area, our technicians quickly contain it upon arrival to stop cross-contamination and the spread of foul odors.

Charred building materials and unrestorable contents are removed. They bring nothing but odors. SERVPRO technicians then carefully remove the fire extinguisher residue with handheld vacuums with HEPA filtration attached. This is a fine powdery substance that can spread odors if it is not picked up quickly.

Our technicians hand clean all surfaces and non-porous contents with our EPA-registered solutions to remove all traces of soot, smoke residue and eliminate odors. Often this is enough to neutralize odors left behind by a fire. Smoke can penetrate porous objects deeply and sometimes more robust odor elimination methods are necessary. We are certified in odor control, and sometimes applications of one or more techniques are required to neutralize lingering odors left behind by a fire entirely.

One go-to method for neutralizing deeply rooted fire odors is thermal fogging. It uses a solvent that is heated and delivered as a fog. It behaves much like smoke and is very useful for the elimination of odors that have penetrated upholstery, window treatments or carpeting. Our goal is to get your store reopened as quickly as possible, looking like new with no reminders of the fire.

If commercial fire damage has happened to your property, contact SERVPRO of Fort Collins at (970) 493-6335 immediately. Our emergency response teams are available 24/7 to mitigate your fire loss and make it “Like it never even happened.”
