Hotel Fire Damage In Tampa
Hotel Fire Damage
Tampa missed the worst of the recent hurricane, but that does not stop other disasters from causing havoc to area businesses. Kitchen and other types of fires still close hotels and other businesses at a time when our state needs every dollar to help fund on-going recovery efforts.
Remediating Tampa hotel fire damage is not a quick task though and should not be approached with speed in mind. The only way to remove debris quickly, clean smoke odors, and restore a hotel to its original condition is to accomplish it right. SERVPRO starts at the highest point of the damage and works our way down to the ground floor so other members of the restoration team can start working while we get rid of drywall, furniture, and other ruined property.
Restoration starts with water removal. Standing water is not usually a concern, so we go directly to extraction wands to pull water out of hallway and room carpets. Since commercial grade carpet has a short nape, we can complete each floor in roughly 1 or 2 days.
Once the water is drawn out, SERVPRO personnel set up fans at the ends of the corridors to bring in warmer air from the outside to finish drying the carpets and lower the humidity. For each room, we open the windows and use air movers if needed to raise the temperature and increase air circulation.
As we remove water, other technicians use spray wands to apply commercial cleaners to support structures, furniture, and other surfaces to remove smoke and soot residues. If we suspect there may be a problem with mold, team members also spray anti-microbial agents where there may be a problem.
With odors and mold taken care of, we move on to replacement. Our teams have decades of experience in hanging new ceilings and installing new drywall. Setting up a new room takes us an afternoon, and with a full crew at work, we can complete an entire floor in less than a week.
Cleaning does not stop at only the hotel building. We maintain commercial washers and dryers to accommodate hundreds of bed linens, napkins, tablecloths, and towels. We have detergents designed to remove soot and odors without damaging the items.
We understand the need to reopen a hotel as quickly as possible. There are still residents without homes, and out-of-state work crews need something other than an army surplus cot for a bed. We have the experience to get the job accomplished correctly and quickly without compromising either one. If you need our help, contact SERVPRO of West Tampa today at (813) 855-0888.
