Commercial Fire Damage Cleanup in a Twin Falls Office Kitchen

The office kitchen is a blessing for coffee breaks and a quick bite to eat before getting back to work. However, operating cooking appliances in any building comes with risk, and almost a third of commercial fire damage in offices comes from cooking. When employees microwave things that pose a fire hazard, like foil-wrapped leftover pizza, and it must be extinguished with a fire extinguisher, cleaning up after such a situation can seem like an insurmountable task.

When commercial fire damage in your Twin Falls office building has you needing fast, effective cleanup, SERVPRO technicians are ready to address and mitigate damage to your commercial facility. Our team strives to restore your office kitchen to its pre-fire condition and prevent long-term damage and odors from soot and protein residues.

There are two types of smoke: wet smoke, from slow-burning fires on "wet" materials such as plastics, rubbers, and liquids; and dry smoke from fast-burning, high-heat fires rich with oxygen. A microwave fire can often mean tackling stains from both types of smoke. Generally speaking, soot from dry smoke can be manually cleaned with a sponge and solution, but wet soot and residues such as materials from the melted plastic of an appliance casing or rubber from a fire-affected cable require more thorough, diligent wet cleaning methods to prevent permanent staining. If there are overhead cabinets above where the fire took place, soot can collect both outside and inside of them, and objects inside may need cleaning to prevent soot from developing acidic properties that can corrode metals and plastics.

Proteins are another issue when cleaning up after a cooking-related fire, and our SERVPRO technicians have the tools to combat this nearly-invisible, odious residue. Without thorough cleaning and deodorizing with equipment such as an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogger, this residue can potentially stain paint-covered surfaces and plastics. For particularly tricky odors, multiple deodorizing methods may be utilized.

SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties is prepared to clean up after any disaster, whether commercial or residential. Give us a call today at (208) 735-1447 so we can send a team to help you.
