Our SERVPRO Professionals Restore Fire Damage to an El Centro Restaurant

As professional restorers, our team often gets called out to emergency situations that require skilled experts to help mitigate and restore damages to commercial properties. As you can see in the video, our team recently began work on an El Centro restaurant that had experienced fire damages.

One of our technicians, Joel Ouijas, walks you through some of the involved processes that our team of experienced technicians throughout the video. It can give you an idea both of the response that we have to the immediate threats and the varying degrees of the restoration work that we do. Even though there was a fire here, these are not the only effects that our team has to face.

As you can see, many members of the team are cleaning up present soot damages spread throughout the kitchen area as you walk around with our technician Joel. While much of this can get cleaned with sponges and wet solutions against the stainless steel throughout the kitchen, it is still a critical step of the process that requires consideration and attention.

The fire originates from a bad AC unit placed above the ceiling in the kitchen area. Firefighting efforts were ultimately efficient and successful, but even Joel remarks that they “sprayed everywhere.” This fact posed another hurdle for our experienced professionals to have to overcome: the water damages. With so many electrical systems and digital equipment throughout the kitchen area, restoring and drying is an involved and intricate process.

Cleaning also plays a significant role in the fire restoration process, as you can see from the earlier mentioned soot cleaning of the stainless steel in the kitchen to the technician cleaning up damaged equipment in the sink with SERVPRO industrial cleaner and our degreasing formula.

As much as it might seem like Joel Ouijas and company have a great deal of work ahead to bring this restaurant back to preloss conditions, this is just part of our commitment to making these situations “Like it never even happened.” If you have your own emergency or need professional restoration work, trust our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City experienced technicians to help you.
