While you may know the main causes of house fires, and when they are most likely to happen, the facts surrounding a commercial fire damage disaster are considerably different. So are the circumstances! Some businesses end up closed for weeks, while others are reopened and ready for customers after just a few days. A lot of that depends on both the severity of the fire, and the restoration company on your side.
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, U.S. fire departments responded to more than three thousand business fires a year between 2007 and 2011, resulting in $112 million in property damage. Unlike house fires that happen more in the middle of the night, business fires are much more likely to happen during the day.
Containment & Putting it Out
Thanks to innovations in smoke odor removal, fire damage restoration, and cleaning in general, it is possible for crews to start work nearly immediately after the fire department clears the scene, and have things back up and running in no time. Again, however, that all depends on the severity of the fire.
