Hospital Fire Remediation
A small fire from an exhaust fan centrally located in the building spread smoke and soot damage through four wards of the hospital across two floors. Due the sensitive nature of hospitals and their critical importance on both hygiene and 24/7 care, quick and rapid response was required by various professionals to restore the hospital to working order as quickly as possible.
NLR was called to remediate the smoke and soot damage throughout the hospital.
