Expertise in Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Helps Cocoa Dry Cleaner Resume Business Fast

A dry cleaning facility in Cocoa caught fire, reducing some highly valued contents, including customers' items to ash. The fire also left many building materials blackened with soot and charring, requiring professional assistance to restore the affected areas so that the dry cleaner could resume operations.

When SERVPRO was informed of the commercial fire damage in the Cocoa dry cleaner, we prepared to help the proprietors salvage whatever was possible, clean up and generally restore the premises to its preloss state. Fires in dry cleaning facilities can be intense because of the abundance of highly combustible materials, including furniture, lint, and garments. The use of petroleum-based solvents only aggravates the situation. Such fires can leave devastating damages.

The incident at the Cocoa dry cleaner was controlled before it could consume the entire structure, thanks to efforts by the fire department. Our SERVPRO technicians could, therefore, use their advanced training to salvage some of the affected items, helping reduce the restoration costs. Among the things, we could readily salvage, were the wooden furniture and structure supports, which were mostly charred or caked in residues. A soda blaster helped us clean all the blackened areas.

The smoke from the fire also affected most of the fabrics within the facility, including garments brought to the facility by customers. Fires produce different types of residues complicating the cleanup process, even for a business that deals in cleaning services. Our SERVPRO technicians are trained to use different cleaning methods, including emulsifying, dissolving, and soils suspension, to get the job done. We also carry out various tests on fabrics to guarantee any cleaning approach used does not set soils or damage the fabrics in other ways. Using this deep wealth of knowledge, we managed to clean up and restore some of the articles left by customers at the dry cleaner.

A fire that ruins customers' valuables can have long-term implications that affect your operations. Call SERVPRO of Central Brevard at (321) 638-4947 to help. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
