More Water Than Fire Damage In Monte Sereno Pool And Spa Store Blaze

Fire damage is traumatic enough without adding severe water damage into the mix. Because soot is caustic, it corrodes surfaces after a short time. When combined with water, not only does it stain and smear, it also creates more damage from the excessive moisture.

SERVPRO mitigated commercial fire damage in a Monte Sereno spa and pool store. An electrical fire began in the ceiling, and the sprinkler system failed to start. The fire caused burning ceiling tiles to fall around a demo hot tub model that was filled with water and running. Once the floor caught on fire, it then melted one side of the demo model, and the water rushed out onto the floor. This helped stop the fire from spreading on the floor but left a large amount of water to clean up.

Because of the propensity of water to migrate, we scoped the property with our moisture detection equipment, including:
    •    probes
    •    thermal imaging
    •    hygrometers

We moved out the undamaged hot tub units and items on shelves in the damaged area for cleaning outside the store, so they were not affected by the moisture or soot during mitigation. We immediately extracted the excess moisture with portable pumps to lessen the drying time. The ceiling tiles received damage from the fire, and we removed the charred debris. Because of the fire in the electrical system, we used our own generators to power our equipment rather than delay restoration services until the property owner had the electrical panel repairs completed.

SERVPRO team members know it is hard for a business to remain closed during mitigation from any type of damage and our goal is to disrupt operations as minutely as possible to get things back to normal with zero reminders of the loss. Even with the scale of the water spill, due to bringing in cleanup services so quickly minimized the loss to the store.

After water extraction and drying along with cleaning away the smoke residues, we then turned our attention to the residual odors left behind. As certified Odor Control Technicians, we have the expertise and specialized equipment to neutralize any level of scent in a property. After verifying the space met drying goals and a final wipe down with our antimicrobial solutions to inhibit mold growth, we gave the property owner a list of the needed repairs to bring the store back to its preloss condition so the store could reopen as soon as possible.
