Beyond the initial issues of a fire comes water damage from sprinklers and other fire-suppression methods. After the fire is out, you need immediate action to contain your building from additional damage.
Many times a fire can be overwhelming and as each party is waiting for approval from the insurance company on what to do next, your structure is absorbing the water from the sprinklers or fireman’s response. Allowing this water to sit, while days pass between the building owners, occupants, and adjusters trying to asses the damage, means allowing your building to become a breeding ground for microbial growth.
During this time you need immediate action to prevent further damage. Water needs to be extracted from self-contained units since you may not have power for portable extractors. Temporary power may need to be set up, which will allow Disaster Response Team by UltraClean to control the humidity levels from creating secondary damage. Make sure that you react so that you can feel confident your disaster isn’t going to become worse.
