How SERVPRO Cleans Fire Damage in Thomson
Effective Cleaning for Fire-Damaged Thomson Schools
From the unruly student that sets a fire in a trash can in the shop rooms on the first floor of your Thomson high school to an electrical overload in the cafeteria area that sparks a flame, your priority in any fire situation is the safety of your students and faculty. Once the areas have gotten cleared, first responders can put out the fire and turn the school back over to you. The property management and school board have likely already reached out to the insurance company and encouraged you to secure professional restoration.
A critical advantage to the construction of your school is its built-in fire resistance features that often leave professionals like our SERVPRO team addressing only smoke and fire cleanup in Thomson schools. Concrete blocks are not able to sustain a flame without an accelerant, and that is partly why the rooms of your school's construction consist of concrete masonry units with fire retardant wool insulation around openings hidden in the blocks and lentils in shared walls.
What this means for your school is that fire damages often stay localized to their origin point, and do not carry the same destructive weight as it might in a home. Smoke and soot are still concerns if organic materials like woods and plastics were in the path of the fire. Our SERVPRO professionals have several potent products that can address soot residues on surfaces like painted block walls, including chemical agents, to dissolve this residue to allow for rinsing with pressurized water.
Addressing smoke damage often means combatting lingering odors that can get left behind in the affected rooms. If the area remains mostly sealed off from the rest of the school after a fire, smaller deodorizing units like thermal foggers can often handle the present conditions by dispersing a vapor that can neutralize smoke odor molecules.
You cannot predict how or when a fire can happen in your school. However, you do have a reliable way to contact experienced fire restoration professionals to get the institution back to normal. Should you want to make fire losses, "Like it never even happened," give our SERVPRO of Augusta South / Burke & Wilkes Counties team a call today at (706) 843-1990.
