Commercial Fire Damage Puts Private West Milford Preschools in Crisis

A fire that happens in one of the offices at your West Milford preschool is much different than one occurring in the kitchen. Hopefully, a fire that starts in the kitchen from food cooking never gets doused with water as a paper-based fire can. Spraying water on cooking or electrical fires can aggravate the problem instead of solving it.

Different types of fire in your West Milford facility require different types of commercial fire damage mitigation and cleanup. Both types need us to secure the area before we begin, including electrical and other safety issues that require stabilizing.

If water was used in either type of fire, we need to extract that moisture before we can begin cleaning and restoring. Without it, damp conditions would continue behind newly installed materials and within enclosed spaces, eventually leading to destructive and expensive problems in the future.

Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration and Cleanup

We want to make everything “Like it never even happened” for you. Also, fire, if children see it or experience an evacuation, can become fearful of returning. We can make it so no traces of the fire, including odors, exist to bring forth bad memories in your students.

The educational materials you used to teach your student body, as well as mats for nap time, activities, and other facets of the typical day at your preschool, can get ruined during a fire. Whenever we come across things that cannot get wet without becoming water-damaged, we list these on an inventory sheet to make it possible for you or your staff to replace them with equivalent items quickly.

Things that we can get clean for you and restore them to pre-damaged condition through different techniques can help get your preschool open again soon. Objects made of durable plastic-like toys can get stripped of soot in an ultrasonic water bath. Walls and doors need special treatments with dry sponges, as well as ceilings and trim.

The areas near the corners between walls and ceilings can experience an electrical charge build-up, continually attracting soot particles. We use special cleaners that stop this from happening, so walls stay clean. Our air scrubbers and our Odor Control Technician (OCT) fogging agents also help stop this from happening.

Carpeting also needs odor control, but we do this through efficient carpet cleaning. Not only do we clean the soot that fell onto the floor and permeated the carpet, but it also removes the odor and replaces it with much nicer smells that young children often find enjoyable. If allergies are a concern, we ask that you discuss this with our staff. They are highly skilled in using alternative, unscented products, as well.

SERVPRO of Wayne helps all kinds of businesses near Pompton Lakes, Ringwood, and Haledon recover swiftly from disasters like fire damage. If you need a flexible and highly qualified mitigation and restoration team, call us 24/7 at (973) 546-4977. We are here every day of the year.
