When fire strikes it can have a devastating effect, especially when your business or commercial property is involved. It can cost a great deal both financially and emotionally and leave you unsure of where to begin picking up the pieces.

When it comes to handling commercial fire damage Durango needs a name they can trust to handle all of their cleanup and restoration needs. For more than 50 years, SERVPRO has been that name and we take pride in reaching out to help our local community.

There is so much to draw people to this area, including its many natural wonders, which can be enjoyed year round. From the breathtaking trails of Purgatory Ski Resort to gold medal fishing in the Animas River, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure.

History is also a big part of Durango’s appeal, including the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, the many nearby archeological sites and of course, Main Avenue, which is a Nationally Registered Historic District.

It’s easy to see the appeal here but difficult to imagine how fire could mar the beautiful landscape. Unfortunately, it can sometimes rear its ugly head and when it does it leaves behind a trail of charred surfaces, smoke and soot, and even water damage from the firefighting efforts themselves.

As part of the Durango community, we at SERVPRO are well aware of just how costly fire damage can be to a commercial property and we understand the importance of acting quickly to get you back on your feet again. That’s why we’re always ready to respond faster to any disaster and provide the quality restoration service you need.

Fighting All Types of Fire Damage

Fire damage is certainly devastating and it can be more far reaching than you realize. There are many ways that fire can damage a property, from the burning of flames to the lingering effects of smoke and soot.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the water used in firefighting efforts can add to the damage by soaking surfaces, weakening structures and leading to mold infestation. 

The heat from flames can reduce many surfaces to cinders while smoke clings to just about everything and can produce noxious odors.

Since smoke and soot can find their way into even the smallest of openings, removing any trace requires industrial strength cleaners and specialized techniques.

The water used by firefighters can damage surfaces and further weaken support structures that have already been damaged by flames, making cleanup even more dangerous.

At the same time, standing water can lead to potentially hazardous mold infestation, so it needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.

When they’re facing this kind of commercial fire damage Durango business owners can be left feeling helpless, but the trained professionals of SERVPRO are ready to handle it.

You can’t afford to trust your business to just any restoration company. You need to know that you’re getting the best possible service from a company that understands your needs and treats you with care.

With your details in hand, we’ll have a technician at your business within four hours to perform a thorough walkthrough and put together a comprehensive plan designed to make it “Like it never even happened”.

We’ll board up windows and cover damaged roofs with tarp in order to mitigate any continuing damage and then assess the existing damage. Next, we’ll point out any items that we feel cannot be salvaged so that you can make the final determination about their disposal and file your insurance claim.

Once these initial steps are taken, we’ll then address any standing water or other hazardous debris, making sure it is removed and disposed of safely. 

Using our state-of-the-art equipment and professional training we’ll take the necessary steps to ensure that all surfaces are thoroughly dried, cleaned and deodorized.

After all standing water is removed we’ll perform a full mold remediation, paying particular attention to the HVAC system, to prevent the spread of potentially hazardous mold throughout your property.

We understand how important your business is to you, which is why we go the extra mile by replacing drywall, removing and replacing carpeting and carpet pads and replacing damaged flooring.  We’ll also make recommendations for any services that are beyond our scope, such as roof repair or restoration of business documents.
