fire causing damage Give our SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville team a call today at (312) 509-5000.

Our SERVPRO Professionals Have Efficient Cleaning and Recovery Techniques for Soiled Surfaces in Chicago Restaurants.

Restaurants are fast-paced environments where the smallest lapse in judgment or mistake can mean substantial issues for your entire building. Such is the case with grease fires, as these often result from allowing oils to get too hot and set ablaze. The situation gets worse when employees panic and utilize water to attempt to put out the fire.

Fire damage in Chicago restaurants like yours can be devastating to a business and its customer base because restoration can become an intricate process. Grease fires often require a combination of trusted oil residue cleaning strategies and reconstruction. We have an in-house team of commercial contractors that can help with controlled demolition and build back as necessary.

    •    How Can I Remove Grease and Oils After a Fire?
    •    Efficient Cleaning Products
    •    Water-Based Chemical Agents
    •    Media Blasting
    •    Foam Cleaning

These strategies differ from one site to the next based on the residues present. Water-based chemical agents can often be beneficial for removing thick oil residue from surfaces after a fire as it can separate the oil from the affected surface for rinsing. Similarly, high pressured air or water combined with different media create abrasive cleaning techniques that can remove surface residues without damaging the underlying substrate.

Do Odors Clear Up on Their Own?
One of the misconceptions of all fires is that time always removes odors, but this is not always the case. Some odors can seem to disappear only to come back when temperatures rise in the kitchen again. With neutralizing equipment like thermal foggers and vaporizing machines, we can create a gaseous state for our deodorizing products so that they penetrate affected structural elements and neutralize trapped odors inside.

We focus on getting your doors back open as soon as possible after a fire. Give our SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville team a call today at (312) 509-5000.
