March 18, 2014 – by Tony Earnshaw
A fire is every homeowner’s and business owner’s worst nightmare, as well as the physical, financial and mental effects that this type of devastation can cause, work must also be done to recover your property and belongings in order to rebuild your life. But returning your home or business premises to its former glory can be done…
Call Your Insurer
The first step following a property fire is to contact your home or business premises insurance provider. Depending on the type of cover you have, your insurer should be happy to help in regards to finding temporary accommodation while your home or business premises is being renovated as well as assisting with the initial steps needed to get your damaged property and its contents cleaned and restored.
Many insurance providers will also ask you to make a detailed list or inventory of all the belongings in property and their value. These items will either be replaced or their monetary value will paid in due course.

As well as offering a number of commercial and industrial cleaning services, here at UK Commercial Cleaning, we also provide fire damage restoration to bring order to your home or business property once more.

The Recovery Process
Whilst the length of the restoration varies from property to property, every fire restoration begins with a damage assessment. This assessment involves a series of tests, which determine the cost and time frame required to recover your home or business premises.
The team at UK Commercial Cleaning provide a number of services to ensure your property has the best possible start following fire and smoke damage, including emergency board up, structural stabilisation, soot clearance, smoke odour removal, sanitation and the removal of damaged belongings and other contents.

Following clearance, the reconstruction of the premises can then take place with all affected areas subject to a variety of expert techniques.
