We Get You Back To Business In Nashua After A Fire Disaster

This establishment acted very quickly to extinguish the fire, however in spite of his efforts, there was plenty of soot and smoke damage.

Fire Damage in the Nashua Convenience Store Cleaned Up Fast

When it comes to commercial fire damage, the livelihoods of owners, employees matter as well as reopening the business, so we strive to turn around loss as fast as possible so you can resume activity and get daily operations back to normal.

SERVPRO answered a call from a convenience store in Nashua with commercial fire damage. Someone heating a burrito in a microwave failed to remove an outer foil wrapper which caused a fire. When someone opened the microwave, oxygen fed the fire, and it spread down one wall before firefighters extinguished it.

Our technicians split into two groups upon arrival a short time after the initial call. One group put up containment using thick, plastic barriers around the fire-damaged area to limit any further spread of soot, while another group packed away items from the shelves for inspection to see what items had restoration potential. Because soot particles have the potential to travel into sealed foodstuffs, safety reasons require discarding of the items.

Our certified Fire Damage Restoration Technicians removed the charred items quickly and used vacuums with HEPA filtration to remove the debris and water from the firefighting efforts. Once done, we moved on and used air scrubbers in tandem with air movers to both dry and remove airborne soot particles.

Standard cleaning methods for smoke damage include:
Dry cleaning sponges to pick up dry, powdery residue
Wet cleaning for tough, greasy residues
Immersion cleaning for non-porous items
Spot cleaning as needed for surfaces or objects that damp cleaning methods may cause damage

The final step before completion of restoration services was the removal of the pungent smoke odor. Our technicians are certified in the science of odor removal and have numerous types of equipment and methods for robust odor control. We frequently use gel pellets that work on time release for around the clock coverage of low-grade odors to thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators that work at the molecular level for neutralizing odors.

Commercial fire damage should be handled as fast as possible. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311, and our emergency response teams are available 24/7 to restore your property to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
