How to Get an Accurate Estimate for Commercial Fire Damage

After experiencing a commercial fire in Lighthouse Point, FL, property managers may be eager to begin the process of cleanup and rebuilding. In order to get an accurate price tag for repairs and restoration, it is essential to work with a local fire cleanup specialist who knows all of the ins and outs of the job. Don't settle for a bid that isn't specified to your individual needs. In order to get an accurate estimate, the restoration company should come out and take an in-person look at the damages done. An over-the-phone generic quote will only be a ballpark guess and may result in inaccurate pricing and a higher final price than expected. Likewise, a contractor who only specializes in one aspect of your repair needs may have to hire additional subcontractors to complete work. The cost of subcontracting may be difficult to predict up-front. Look for a restoration crew that can give you a guaranteed quote in all of the following areas.

Debris Cleanup

Following a commercial fire, your facility is likely to be covered in ashes, soot and other debris. Cleanup and complete debris removal is essential to restoring a safe and functional space. Removing debris is the first step in fire damage cleanup for the following reasons:

  • Prevention of a permeating smoke smell
  • Removal of dangerous rubble
  • Inventory of salvageable items
  • Calculation of total loss items

Odor Removal

If your workplace is ever going to be returned to its former state, air quality must be breathable and smoke-free. Smoke from a fire has a way of quickly permeating its surroundings. Even after a small fire, the smell of smoke may continue to linger. When considering an estimate for commercial restoration, be sure odor removal is included in the price.

Reconstruction

Finally, a proper bid should go-over the cost of reconstructing your facility to the way it was before the fire took place. Professional fire restoration companies should never shy away from working with your commercial insurance agent. Be sure to get a pricing guarantee that includes each of the areas mentioned above. Doing so will ensure the most accurate estimate.
