Owning commercial property of any kind is complicated and sometimes stressful. Countless details demand your attention day in and day out. One critical piece that often goes overlooked is disaster preparedness.
Business and commercial property owners usually prepare well to react immediately to emergencies or damage (like installing smoke detectors and creating emergency exit maps). Still, they don’t really know what they would do after the immediate danger is over.
This is where commercial restoration contractors come in. A quality restoration contractor is an invaluable asset for any business or commercial property owner.
Getting Started with a Commercial Restoration Contractor?
A commercial restoration contractor specializes in cleaning, mitigating, and restoring damage to your business or commercial property. They are experts at handling the cleaning and construction aspect as well as dealing with the complicated insurance claims process.
Excellent commercial reconstruction contractors have years of experience in constructing, maintaining, and upgrading all kinds of buildings. They know what to look for when a building is severely damaged by fire, storms, mold, or other disasters. They also maintain good working relationships with various insurance companies and understand how to advocate for their clients to ensure they get the most out of their insurance coverage.
Most of the time it is the “damage behind the damage” that is the most challenging to mitigate with building owners and insurance companies. While it is easy enough to see the damage a fire does to your building, it may not be as easy to deal with the subsequent damage a disaster can do to other parts of a building including adjoining spaces, foundations, non-adjacent walls, etc. Experienced Commercial Restoration Contractors will help you take care of all aspects of building mitigation, cleaning, repair and build-back.
Working with A Commercial Restoration Contractor
If you have an emergency like a fire, you should first call emergency services. Once the situation is under control, contact your commercial reconstruction contractor. Pro Service Builders is often one of the first groups on site after a damaging event to begin the remediation and assessment process.
However, you don’t need to wait for your property to be damaged to contact a commercial restoration contractor. In fact, it’s better to establish a relationship with your contractor before you need their services. Building a relationship before there is an emergency or damage to your commercial property allows you to thoroughly vet the contractor without the added stress of an urgent situation.
Establishing a working relationship with a restoration contractor can also improve the insurance claims process after an emergency or property damage. You’ll be able to choose a contractor that is familiar with your insurance provider and ensure your insurance company approves your choice of contractor. This eliminates one step in the claims process and can improve the overall insurance claims experience.
Commercial Restoration Services We Provide
There are several main categories of commercial restoration services that your restoration contractor should be able to handle.
Fire Restoration in Arkansas
Fires can be especially devastating because your property likely has fire, smoke, and water damage. Depending on the extent of the fire, your home or business might suffer widespread flooding from the firefighters’ efforts and your fire suppression systems.
Once the fire is out, Pro Service Builders will assess the damage and take any necessary steps to prevent further problems. If necessary, a commercial reconstruction team will secure your property by putting up tarps or boards to prevent further loss or damage.
When everything is safe, the Pro Service Builders team will create a plan to restore your property. We begin by making a detailed assessment of the entire building to document every detail of damage for the insurance adjusters.
Our highly trained crews will clean and remove soot and smoke odor and damage. If necessary, we will also bring in specialized equipment to remove any water from sprinkler systems or firefighters. Then, we make sure the building is dried and dehumidified to prevent mold and mildew from growing.
Once everything is clean and dry, our team will restore and rebuild your property and return it to a like-new condition. Our project managers, estimators, and superintendents have a wealth of knowledge and experience in everything from electrical, plumbing, and drywall to metal frames and studs, framing, and finish carpentry. We will see the job through to completion.
Water Damage Restoration and Mold Mitigation in Arkansas
Water damage restoration may be as minor as replacing drywall, painting, and flooring, or it might require complete reconstruction of various areas. No matter how extensive the damage may be, it’s critical for a commercial reconstruction contractor to assess the situation as quickly as possible to prevent further damage.
When dealing with water damage, a quick reaction is critical to prevent further property damage from mold, mildew, or standing water. Our team arrives on-site as quickly as possible to secure your property, stop the water flow (if necessary and possible), and prevent any further loss or damage.
We assess the situation and provide detailed reports of the damage to your insurance provider. Then our team removes the damaged materials and makes sure everything is disposed of properly. We use specialized drying and dehumidifying machines to make sure everything dries thoroughly.
Pro Service Contractors are capable of tackling complex biohazard remediation projects as well. If dangerous storm or sewage water damages your home or business, or if mold and mildew start growing, our team can safely clean and repair your property.
Roof Replacement and Storm Damage Restoration in Arkansas
Was your home or commercial property damaged by wind or hail? Pro Service Builders will respond, even during the storm, to prevent further damage! We will place tarps and secure your property to prevent further damage.
After the storm is passed, we will complete a full damage assessment, work with your insurance adjusters, and ensure everything is properly repaired or replaced.
Asbestos Abatement in Arkansas
Unfortunately, many homes and buildings constructed before 1989 have materials that contain asbestos, including roofing shingles, siding, insulation, textured paint, and vinyl sheet flooring. A licensed asbestos removal company must handle the project to prevent exposure and eliminate health risks.
Our first step is to seal all air ducts, disable the HVAC system, and prevent asbestos fibers from spreading throughout your home or commercial property during the removal and cleaning process. We also take steps to protect any surfaces in your property that aren’t being treated for asbestos.
Once we create a safe work area, our technicians remove all the materials containing asbestos. We wear protective clothing and masks to limit our exposure and seal the building materials in specialized asbestos disposal waste bags.
After we remove the asbestos materials from your property, we treat and clean the entire area to ensure no asbestos particles remain.
Structural Shoring and Remediation in Arkansas
After disasters like fires, wind, storms, and other events, Pro Service Builders works with our contractors and engineers to shore up and brace damaged buildings, walls, and roofs. This prevents further damage to your building and keeps workers safe during the restoration process.
General Construction Build Back
Once the immediate emergency is under control, the Pro Service Builders team can begin to remove all the damaged materials and restore your home or building. We make every effort to stay on schedule and work with your budget so that you can return to normal life as quickly as possible.
Our technicians can handle all aspects of build back projects, including structural repairs, electrical, drywall, flooring, general carpentry, and roof replacement.
