Document Cleaning, Drying & Restoration
Damaged paper, book bindings, x-rays, and films quickly deteriorate, so a timely and appropriate recovery protocol is necessary to halt the progression of damage and protect what are often highly valuable and irreplaceable documents.
The combination of chemicals released by fire and the extinguishing water can lead to extensive damage of electronic and mechanical systems. HVAC systems and duct work are particularly vulnerable to contamination, as they carry smoke during the fire. Equally valuable IT and manufacturing equipment may also be damaged from the direct or residual effects of moisture and acidic contaminates.
Although most customers expect that fire or flood damaged carpets and upholstery need to be replaced, our skilled technicians can often employ a range of techniques to remove all traces of water and smoke damage, restoring items to pre-incident condition.
Water Damage Restoration
The water used to extinguish the flame creates damage. Initial tests are performed to establish the length of time the property has been exposed to water, the amount of moisture that has been absorbed and how deeply the water has penetrated. The secondary effects such as mold growth, corrosion and structural deterioration are often more significant than the initial damage itself.
Mold Remediation and Odor Control
Mold and odors are an inevitable consequence of any fire or water damage. Without the correct treatment, they can lead to significant occupier discomfort and even serious health issues, from which liabilities can result. Polygon employs a number of techniques, to mitigate against bad odor and remove bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold and mildew including:
Code Blue is the First Step in Ensuring Your Company is Covered for Property Damage Restoration Situations.
Polygon’s Code Blue service offers a unique approach in helping organizations maximize the benefits of business continuity and disaster recovery plans. At its core, the program aims to deliver a faster response to a property damage incident and therefore quickly stabilize business critical operations. This is achieved by identifying areas of importance throughout a building’s infrastructure and keeping a record of such priorities before damage occurs, so, in the event damage is suffered, emergency response teams can immediately start work.
