WAREHOUSE MANUFACTURING FIRE DAMAGE

Cotton cleaned and sealed concrete floor utilizing a degreaser.

WAREHOUSE MANUFACTURING FIRE DAMAGE

When a loading dock outside a warehouse caught fire, the client experienced extensive fire and water damage covering approximately 200,000 square feet of floor space. Cotton was immediately called in to perform full-service fire and water restoration services that would meet FDA approval for sanitary conditions.

Once on-site, Cotton performed initial incident assessments and established strategic remediation plans in order to reduce the client’s business interruption and return the facility to operational status quickly and efficiently. The FDA remained on-site during the remediation process to inspect and approve zone completions. Cotton was able to complete remediation and restoration efforts within 60-days by having personnel working 24/7 to expedite recovery solutions.
