How SERVPRO ERP Response Times Can Make A Difference In Bucktown

12/3/2016 (Permalink)

Most commercial fires are accompanied by some amount of water damage, usually from sprinklers.

SERVPRO ERP Program

The SERVPRO ERP program allows business owners to submit detailed and relevant information about each of their properties without hassle or fee so that we can respond quickly and with heightened awareness of the situation. Then, when disaster strikes, it only takes a few clicks on the web or in our app to have SERVPRO professionals responding to the property in need. When it comes to fire damage, every minute can count, and the time saved by using our ERP system helps to make sure the damage is kept to a minimum and your doors are back open as quickly as possible. Here are a few elements of commercial fire damage in which time is critical during our initial response.

Soot And Ash
When there is significant burn in a case of commercial fire damage in Bucktown, ash can quickly begin to accumulate and collect on all sorts of surfaces. If this ash buildup is allowed to continue unabated, problems can arise such as clogged pipes and drains, increased damage to HVAC systems, and permanent damage to flooring. The faster we can respond to fire damage, the more we are able to mitigate the effects of ash buildup.

Water Damage
Most commercial fires are accompanied by some amount of water damage, usually from sprinklers. These can mix with materials such as smoke and ash, creating sludge that can stain and chip away at displays, walls, and floors. Additionally, if there is enough water to cause flooding, water must be extracted immediately to make sure that it doesn't seep down and cause massive damage to the structure.

Structural Damage
In some cases, damage to the structure may be significant enough to create a risk of partial or total collapse of walls, ceilings, and supports. Sometimes just a few minutes can make a difference.
