  • Step 3 : Mitigation — Depending on the type of damage, such as smoke or water, it is important to mitigate any further damage. This process is done by treating the source and sealing off the area.
  • Step 4 : Cleanup — A full, thorough cleaning of the whole process begins promptly to ensure the building is clean and free of contaminants or harmful bacteria.
  • Step 5 : Restoration — The final step is the full repair and restoration of the entire property. This step includes repairing or replacing cabinets, flooring, carpet, drywall and more.

Commercial Restoration Time Frame

Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer as to the time frame for commercial restoration. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete, depending on the amount of damage present in the property. The team will also need to factor in location, replacement materials and labor.

A key part in the assessment phase of the above-mentioned restoration process is to consider the scope of the damages. Then, with this information available to the team, it is possible to estimate a complete time frame. You’ll be in the know throughout the whole process.
