After a blaze, there is so much to do, and time is critical. We will work fast to cover any openings to protect against the elements and unauthorized entry. We will also perform extensive debris removal and repairs. Smoke causes its own widespread destruction. Much of that is preventable, but only if we take the right actions in the first few hours. You're also likely to need water extraction and related services to limit mold and other water damage. The job is more than what a couple of people can handle, and very few people and companies have the necessary training to do things right.
There's only a one-to-two day window to head off further destruction. We advise you to take the time, however, and make sure the contractor you hire is experienced and has all the necessary qualifications. They must be appropriately licensed and insured. Otherwise, you could end up with unnecessary deterioration, shoddy work, and even a workman's injury lawsuit. Additionally, they should have a long-term presence in the San Diego County, CA area so that you can count on them to back up their work.
Our Fire Damage Restoration Process
Even a relatively small fire can present a challenging and complicated situation. Often emotionally devastating for the homeowner or business owner, it's also technically challenging even for experienced fire and smoke damage restoration professionals. Usually, a large team is needed simply due to the extent of fire damage repairs and the need for speed in mitigating against further water and smoke damage. No two blazes are precisely alike, and different combinations of surfaces, materials, and types of smoke require unique cleaning and restoration solutions.
- Assessment. Recovery begins with our expert's evaluation and planning. They will create a recovery plan specific to your home or place of business and the fire damage inflicted. That plan will include details of all losses, materials and workmanship standards, and a schedule of all mitigation and remediation steps.
- Secure the Building. The first consideration is the safety of our workers and the building's contents. Accomplishing that may involve structural reinforcements, roof tarp overs, and board-ups for destroyed windows, doors, and walls.
- Initial Cleaning. Once the building is safe and secure, our crews can begin debris removal along with initial cleaning and repairs.
Smoke Damage and Odor Removal
The next priority is preventing further smoke damage and keeping fire odors from becoming permanent. Soot and smoke contain hundreds of harmful compounds that are toxic, corrode metals and glass, stain and discolor, and can lead to long-lasting odors. Dealing with all that requires far more than wiping with conventional detergents. Dry-ice and soda-blasting gear quickly clean large surfaces. For unreachable areas, thermal fog combines with odor-causing substances. Our ozone generators can break those odor compounds apart, even those deep within the structure.
Water Damage Restoration
After fire sprinkler activation, the use of fire hoses, or the use of foam, you'll need water damage restoration as well. All that water will have soaked deeply into just about everything, leading to mold, wood buckling, and warping, and drywall crumbling in a matter of just a few days. You can avoid much, if not all, of that damage with immediate and thorough water extraction, structural dry out, and mold remediation.
A similar fire damage restoration process of drying, cleaning, and deodorizing applies to your building's contents. We'll take immediate action to remove possessions from wet and contaminated areas for their protection and to speed building drying and cleaning. As with the property, our goal is to return salvageable items to pre-loss condition.
That often means using pack-out services. After pre-treatment, we'll transport salvageable furniture and other items to our climate-controlled San Diego County, CA facility for full restoration and secure storage. Our pack-out services include a detailed inventory of all items removed, including documentation of their condition for insurance claims and your peace of mind.
