- Do my belongings need to be moved away from the premises during the fire restoration process?
- What causes mould?
- Do I need general contractors?
Depending on the extent of the fire or smoke damage, it may be advisable to move all your belongings to a secure facility for cleaning and storage, and to make room for restoration or construction. ServiceMaster Restore will work with you and your insurance claim representative to manage this process seamlessly.
Excess moisture caused by leaks or flooding in your commercial property — especially in typically damp environments like the kitchen and bathrooms — creates the perfect breeding ground for mould or mildew. To control and reduce the risk for mould growth in these areas, you must properly maintain your plumbing system and monitor any appliances in your facility that use large quantities of water, such as dish washers. Small amounts of indoor mould are unavoidable and usually harmless. In damp environments, however, mould spores can more easily reproduce and cause more serious and difficult to remove mould problems.
There are some aspects of the restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc. ServiceMaster Restore offers full reconstruction services.
