Restoring Brickwork on Fire-Damaged Flossmoor Warehouses
Your Flossmoor warehouse has stood for decades in spite of severe weather systems and other natural disasters that have affected the surrounding area. Part of this longevity can get attributed to the craftsmanship of the bricklayers and masons responsible for the brickwork that makes up both the interior and exterior walls of the facility. When fire damages the inside of your business, there are few better materials than a brick to withstand potential structural damages, though they are not entirely impervious to the effects of the blaze.
Even with a resistant material like brickwork, fire damages to your Flossmoor warehouse cannot get avoided entirely. While your primary concern after a fire in your facility is the stock and materials within the building to get to a safe location before they get ruined by the lingering effects of the blaze, both this mitigation work and the restoration of the interior and exterior brickwork requires trained professionals like our SERVPRO technicians.
With a higher threshold to extreme temperatures, bricks can often stay in place and uncompromised by even a widespread structure fire. Provided that the mortar joints did not suffer damages throughout the incident, often brickwork needs focused cleaning on removing smoke and soot residues from the surface.
Our SERVPRO team has equipment designed to effectively break up sediment and staining on the surface of brickwork and other materials to allow our high-powered vacuums and conventional cleaning methods to work. Exterior brick cleaning can often require the application of high strength solvents like muriatic acid, which can not only remove soot and smoke damage but renew the look of the bricks themselves.
The contents department of our team can help to protect your stock and stored goods within the warehouse by moving them to our facility nearby. There they can get attentive cleaning, deodorization, and disinfection to prepare for their return once restoration work in the warehouse completes.
As conventional as brick construction might be for commercial properties throughout the area, these units still require professional attention when faced with a fire. Let our SERVPRO of Matteson – Homewood rapid response team help to make this disaster “Like it never even happened” by calling (708) 747-9925.
