Are soot and smoke on the menu?
Like everyone else, I like to eat out at a nice quiet restaurant. But the last time I checked, smoke and soot were NOT on the menu.
So, what happens when a restaurant has a fire? Will it be closed long, or reopen quickly?
And it doesn't have to be just a restaurant, it could be your kitchen as well.
Here at SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank, we understand that no one wants to be displaced for any extended amount of time, whether it's cooks and wait staff at a restaurant, or you at home. That's why, as soon as the call comes in, we spring into action to quickly assess what was affected by not only the flames, but by the smoke as well. Smoke and soot particles can travel some distance from the actual fire (think of the wild fires on the west coast; sometimes we see smoke in the sky here in the Midwest).
After we determine what was damaged, we then think about how to clean it. For example, drywall with smoke staining cannot be cleaned by simply spraying a cleaner on it and wiping it away. The cleaner may actually set the stain, making it permanent.
If fire, smoke, and soot has damaged your kitchen, call the fire experts at SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank at 708-430-3600. We're available 24/7/365 to help you out.
