What To Expect During Restoration Of Fire Damage In Los Angeles
Fires leave a wide range of damages depending on the type of blaze and the materials affected, among other factors. Restoring the property to its preloss state requires a proper understanding of the situation so that the response mounted can follow the correct steps. When we restore Los Angeles homes damaged by fires, we go through different stages, fixing the damage “Like it never even happened.”
Every blaze leaves different levels of fire damage in Los Angeles homes. It is not possible to ascertain what needs to be done to restore the preloss conditions immediately the flames die down. The plan only materializes after carrying out various evaluations steps. Our SERVPRO technicians check whether the incident involves a higher percentage of damage from flames or smoke. In cases where smoke damage is prevalent, we do further evaluation to establish whether it is wet or dry smoke. With such an evaluation, we can tell which steps to take and how long the entire process is likely to take.
When a home is damaged by fire, secondary damages can occur if actions are not taken to protect it. Such secondary damages can happen from wetness if firefighters use adequate water to quell the flames. Fires can also shatter windows or puncture holes in the roof and walls. Our SERVPRO technicians extract any water left over from firefighting efforts. We also board up the affected property to seal any openings to keep out weather elements, rodents, and vandals.
After a blaze, various debris and residues fill up the property, so there is a need to remove them. Debris mostly includes charred remains of contents affected during the incident. Disposing of such items from the property helps the cleanup effort. Slightly damaged items can be restored using specialized restorative cleaning. Our SERVPRO technicians use soda blasting or dry ice blasting for such purposes.
