Cleaning Up Your Clifton Park Church After a Reception Hall Fire

Cleaning up after a fire loss in your Clifton Park church can require multiple restorative processes. Because fires can originate in different areas of your structure, identifying the full measure of the damage is where recovery efforts begin. Our project manager can walk through the site with our customers when possible to gain perspective on what is most important for the congregation of the church moving forward.

While these disasters can originate anywhere on the property, the reception hall can often be the origin point of fire damage to Clifton Park churches. This larger gathering area has a kitchen section where stoves can get left on and catch pots and pans on fire, but this prep area might also feature outlets and respective circuits at their limitations. Because many receptions and family gatherings using this hall of your church demand power through music equipment, the PA system, and several heating pads or slow cookers, overloading outlets can happen without excessive use.

When fires originate from overloaded outlets, it is a problem that can escalate quickly, In many situations, the fire itself starts within the walls, allowing it to take a real hold on nearby construction materials like drywall and framework in the brief time before others can recognize a threat. Even with suppression systems like sprinklers, controlled demolition, debris removal, and other mitigation tasks must occur to make the reception hall usable again.

Sealing off the fire damaged area of your church can help migrating threats like harsh odors and soot from reaching more challenging areas to clean and recover like the sanctuary. Linoleum flooring can deal with substantial soot residues that can get cleaned with chemical agents and wiping or foam cleaning approaches. In addition to removing harmful soot residues through this direct cleaning path, we can protect the installed flooring and reduce odors as well.

With plastic barriers preventing access and cross-contamination, we can maximize our efforts in this work zone. Machines like hydroxyl generators or ozone machines can run when the church is empty to begin neutralizing smoke odors and filtering out debris and contaminants during controlled demolition and eventual build back by our licensed commercial contractors.

A fire can start in different areas and for different reasons. However, a fast and confident response can help to reduce property damage and expedite recovery and restoration for your church. We know how important it can be to have the full use of your building, so we can work efficiently to get things back to normal.
