Fire Commercial Cleanup Process

Fire damage is a complex issue, but it's something we see every day. As professional cleaners and restoration specialists, we know the best steps to follow when dealing with fire clean-up.


Once the fire department has extinguished the fire and called in the clean-up crew, it's time to do an assessment of what needs to be done. The damage caused by each fire is different and will vary based on factors like whether it was electrical or accidental, how long it burned for, how much water was used in trying to put out the flames (especially if they were directly applied), how large your commercial space is, what kind of materials were involved in the fire itself (such as wood) and whether there was any smoke or soot damage from the smoke detectors going off during evacuation.

You may have physical damage such as charred walls or ceilings; melted carpets; damaged machinery; warped floors or air ducts due to heat exposure. You may also have emotional trauma from having watched something horrible happen right before your eyes—or even financial consequences if you need extensive repairs done quickly but don't have enough money saved up yet!

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Cleaning and sanitizing are critical parts of the fire damage restoration process. Cleaning is the process of removing soot, debris, and other foreign materials from the structure. Sanitizing involves using chemicals to kill bacteria and fungi in a structure that has been exposed to water damage.

It's important for both cleaning and sanitizing to be done by trained professionals with experience in this industry because it can be very dangerous for people who aren't trained properly. The use of improper chemicals could lead to further damage or health problems if they are not used correctly.


Restoration is the process of returning a property to its preloss condition. It includes cleaning, repairing, replacing, and restoring damaged property.

Restoration can be done by a professional restoration company that has experience in these types of situations. The cleanup process is the first step in getting back to normal after a fire. A professional restoration company will make sure that you’re able to use your home again as soon as possible so you can get back on your feet after losing everything due to a fire loss.

Fire damage is complex, but it can be fixed.

It takes a lot of work to clean up after a fire. In addition to the smoke damage that you'll notice right away, there's also hidden water damage caused by fire extinguishers and hoses used by firefighters in the cleanup process. This additional damage needs to be addressed before you can feel comfortable moving back in. But don't worry, we're going to walk you through all the steps required for complete restoration!

The good news is that your homeowners' insurance policy will cover any structural repairs required after a fire has occurred at your home or business; however, most policies do not cover any personal belongings lost during these events (unless they were stolen). So, if this happens—and we hope it never does—don't expect help from your insurance company! They won't pay for new furniture or clothing items destroyed by smoke damage either... so don't forget about those expenses when calculating how much money will come out of pocket when cleaning up after an incident like this one.

Fire damage is complex, but it can be fixed. The fire cleanup process starts with an assessment of the property and its contents to determine what needs to be cleaned and how much it will cost. If your fire damage repair is extensive, your insurance company will reimburse you for the cost of cleaning services up to a certain amount depending on the type of policy you have. We would be happy to help you determine if this applies to your case!
