- What are some safety concerns for smoke or fire damage at our business?

- What about special items? Artwork, china, heirlooms, etc.
Occupant and worker safety is ServiceMaster Restore’s top priority. During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical issues, slip and trip hazards, etc. Burnt equipment and electrical devices are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical equipment or devices are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of safe operation. Electrical power may have to be turned off in the entire facility until evaluation by a licensed electrician is completed.
Hard surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized after water damage occurs. Affected items that cannot be sanitized will require disposal. Porous materials such as drywall, ceiling tiles, insulation, particleboard, paneling, etc., that have been directly affected by the damage, should be removed during the emergency service visit.
Some high-value items require restoration by specialists. Working with your insurance claim representative, we can help you identify these items and locate a qualified restorer.
