How Else Do Fire Damage Restoration Services in Daytona Beach Help Hotel Facilities Apart From Fixing Damages?
Management of the Loss Site Is One of the Key Roles SERVPRO Plays during Fire Damage Restoration in Daytona Beach Business Facilities
When a fire breaks out at your hotel, you have to fix the damages and take care of other logistical issues. In many cases, closing down and sending your staff and customers temporarily away is inevitable to give space to those doing the restoration. However, logistical aspects of the restoration can still cause problems. When SERVPRO manages restoration at your Daytona Beach facility, you do not have to worry about such challenges.
What are some necessary steps that fall under management of fire loss sites?
Before you embark on fire damage restoration at your Daytona Beach hotel, you might need to perform some checks or take some preparatory steps. While such steps may not fix the damage, they can reveal useful information or help prevent some adverse outcomes. A few examples of such steps that our SERVPRO technicians undertake include:
• Checking electrical safety issues like frayed or bare wires
• Confirming physical integrity of structural components
• Restoring heat to the structure
• Boarding up any openings in the structure
Various aspects of the fire incident, including the flames, heat, and water used to quell the flames, as well as the accumulation of corrosive elements such as soot, can affect your electrical cables, sockets, and other installations. Flames and water exposure can also weaken structural supports. Starting restoration processes without inspecting the structure can pose risks to those doing restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians perform various checks, including:
• Checking the level of charring using char depth gauges
• Using circuit checkers to confirm there are no short-circuits
• Checking moisture levels in structural supports using moisture meters
What restorative role does heating play in a burnt structure?
Maintaining ideal temperature levels in a structure after fire damage can help protect the contents. For instance, the high humidity in the air from the water spilled during fire suppression can damage television sets and other electronics by corroding internal parts. Heating helps keep them from cooling to the dew point, thus avoiding such damage.
