Motel fire has room boarded up

6/4/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Motel fire has room boarded up Keeping visitors out of a room that has been affected by fire, and also keeping the elements out, are key to the cleaning process.

Recently, a local motel had a small fire, confined mostly to one room.  The fire department, in their zeal to extinguish the fire, gave the two rooms adjacent water damages as well.

SERVPRO of Bedford Park/Burbank was called out, and we boarded up the room that suffered the fire damages.  Any water damaged rooms were quickly extracted, dried, and sprayed with an antimicrobial, so those units could be used by the business.

The reason we board up a room that has been subject to a fire is several fold:  It keeps unwanted visitors from entering a potentially unsafe room.  It also keeps soot particles from damaging other unaffected rooms.  And, in this case, it also protects the room from the outside weather, possibly causing even more secondary damages.  

There are many stages to cleaning up after a fire.  Keeping the area safe and secure is first and foremost.  Then you have to think about the physical cleaning and deodorization processes.  And finally, putting the structure back to preloss conditions.

SERVPRO of Bedford Park/Burbank is an expert at cleaning up after fires, whether they are confined to a single room, or an entire building.  Plus, we are available 24/7/365.  Simply call 708-430-3600 to get the process started.
