Protein Residue can be Challenging to Remove. Calling a Team of Professional Fire Restoration Technicians Makes the Work More Efficient 

It is not unusual for a Jamestown restaurant kitchen to catch on fire. With food always on the burners and ovens, it is almost a matter of time before an accident occurs, and a grease fire erupts. Regardless of the staff's quick response with a fire extinguisher or the rapid arrival of firefighters, the odds are that soot and smoke travel fast throughout the kitchen and into the main dining area. Before you set up to clean the residue on your own, let a reputable crew of fire restoration technicians tailor a plan for your needs.  

Restaurant owners in Jamestown can leave fire damage restoration to our SERVPRO team. We understand that reopening and resuming normal operations is essential to your livelihood and work diligently to reduce the time you remain closed to your patrons. Whenever possible, our crew isolates the affected area and prevents damage in other restaurant areas. We coordinate with authorities and guidelines specific to the restaurant industry, so your eatery is running as soon as possible. 

What makes a protein fire hard to clean up?

Protein such as meat and poultry leave a distinguished type of residue behind. The thick and yellowish stain is tough to remove, as is the strong odor lingering in the air. When our SERVPRO fire restoration crew arrives, we consider the chemical composition of whatever burned and the nature of the cleaning surfaces.   

Fixtures in your restaurant made of natural elements such as wood require a different treatment than those made of vinyl, for example. Our extensive training prepares us to care for both. The following steps are essential to our success in restoring your place: 

  • Pre-treatment of affected areas to prevent damage caused by abrasive cleaners
  • HEPA vacuuming and sponge drying to loosed soot and make it easier to remove
  • Use of odor removal techniques such as air scrubbers and thermal foggers 

At SERVPRO of Jamestown/Olean, we take a comprehensive approach to fire restoration. When you call us at (716) 338-4901, you can count on us addressing each aspect of fire damage in our work. Like you, we want your restaurant to feel, “Like it never even happened.”
