One of the worst things that can happen to a business is fire damage. From lingering smoke damage, burnt appliances, an uninhabitable environment, and structural damage to the property, an uncontained fire can cause your business serious setbacks – and insurance may not cover it all.

Luckily, our commercial fire restoration services from ServiceMaster Restoration Services by Ideal Group can help bring your business back to life. Our experienced technicians will work with you to get your doors back open as soon as possible, guiding you through every step of the process to give you peace of mind.

Our Commercial Fire Restoration Process

In most cases, our restoration process follows the following steps:

  • Fire Damage Assessment of Your Business
  • Extensive Pre-Cleaning
  • Complete Structural Cleaning
  • Packout Services (Optional)
  • Deodorization

Fire Damage Assessment of Your Business

Once you call our office, our experienced technicians will arrive at your property to examine the damage caused by the fire. Because the damage can worsen quickly and every fire is different, we take immediate action to assess the extent of the fire damage – which includes visibly affected areas and those that may not be visible to the untrained eye.

After fully assessing the extent of the damage, our technicians will decide the proper course of action for your property and work with you to create a customized remediation plan based on your needs.

Extensive Pre-Cleaning

Next, we will perform a pre-cleaning of the property. This process ensures that no further damage happens during the restoration, as well as making the area safe for repairs. Because there is a possibility that the fire damage may have led to other damages, such as water damage from burst pipes or dispersal of a chemical agent from your fire suppression system, we will eliminate these damages before focusing on the rest of the commercial fire restoration process.

Complete Structural Cleaning

Once the immediate threats to your property have been eliminated, our technicians will begin the structural cleaning. This comprehensive process includes removing all damaged materials from the property, including furniture, carpets, floorings, and any damaged appliances. Once removed, our state-of-the-art equipment and products will be used to thoroughly clean every damaged area of your business.

Packout Services (Optional)

If your business has belongings and property that weren’t affected by the fire damage, our technicians will perform pack-out services to ensure that the belongings that were not severely damaged during the fire won’t be damaged during the commercial fire restoration process. To do this efficiently, our crew will inventory, pack up, and store all of your belongings in a secure and climate-controlled off-site location while cleaning. If this property was affected by smoke or soot, we will deodorize and restore those belongings before returning them back to your property.


The final step in the commercial fire restoration process is to remove the odors left behind from the fire. We use a number of professional-grade equipment and products, including ozone generators and air scrubbers, to eliminate odors once and for all. This will complete the process, leaving your property smelly fresh with no trace of fire damage remaining.
