Minor fire damage
Minor damage involves damage to only a areas in your establishment. The amount of the smoke and soot residue is also light or moderate at most. Such type of damage can be restored quite easily. SERVPRO technicians can use a dry or wet cleaning to eliminate the residue from floors, walls and even from contents as well. You can have a short restoration period if the fire damage is minor.
Medium fire damage
If the damage is medium, there is usually moderate to heavy smoke residue on surfaces. The cleaning process involves wet cleaning and can take significantly more time. Chemical powder fire suppressent systems located in commercial kitchens can in of itself create quite a mess. Some of the areas or items may even have to be replaced in such kind of damage. Odor control is also a big problem with fires of this size. Consequently, it can require more time for SERVPRO professionals to clean the damage of this scale thoroughly.
Major fire damage

Smoke and soot can spread on extensive areas following such a magnitude of damage. Restoring major fire damage to a restaurant can take a long time. Emergency services including boarding up the structure, establishing a source of electricity may be needed during the restoration process.
