While the Extent Varies, Demolition is Often Part of The Fire Restoration Process for Norwich Commercial Properties.

When fires impact your business, many look to the experience of our SERVPRO professionals for help. Because we appreciate the relationship between damaged structural elements and longer restoration times, we focus on the demolition necessary to make cleanup and recovery as efficient as possible.

Small Demolition Needs

In some situations, fire damage mitigation in Norwich offices starts with mild controlled demolition approaches like removing trim or pulling up small portions of short-pile carpeting. Taking these small steps can prevent larger fire loss effects from impacting the property, however.

Erecting Containment Barriers

While removing damaged elements can be beneficial to the property, there are also advantages to installing containment barriers where possible.

  • Keep Demo Dust Down – Whether it is demolition or new construction, dust and debris can be an overwhelming presence for the property. Containment keeps these airborne particles in the work area exclusively. 
  • Prevent Cross-Contamination – Plastic barriers prevent aerosolized particles from soot and smoke from finding their way into other areas of the office. Limiting the restoration needs of the property gets you back in business more quickly.
  • Keeping Your Business Going – Containment is also vital for helping your office or business to keep going in a limited capacity by sectioning off threatening areas and allowing work to resume in undamaged spaces.

Extensive Demolition for Damaged Offices

There are situations in which the physical damage to the structure is too significant for demolition to be ignored. Our general contractor license allows us to complete full-scale demolition and discard compromised structural features. We can fully rebuild after the restoration completes.

There are several applications for demolition when fire and smoke damage impact area homes or businesses. Your office building or store could benefit immensely from debris and bulk material removal and subsequent containment strategies.
