Ways Professional Assistance Helps During Fire Damage Incidents in Los Angeles

A fire incident might not be that severe but still lead to widespread damages in your Los Angeles property. Such outcomes are common after incidents such as stove flare-ups and grease fires in the kitchen or incidents caused by malfunctioning electrical appliances. Calling a professional restoration service to help you clean up and restore your property after fire damage presents many benefits.

A Deeper Understanding of an Incident

When you look at the outcome of a fire damage incident in Los Angeles, you probably only see the blackened surfaces and charred materials. With such an outlook, you might not prepare well for the restoration process. Our SERVPRO technicians scope the loss site to establish the types of residues left and how far they spread throughout the property to determine the best response plan. The following types of residues left by fires are difficult to clean:

  • Protein Smoke Residues
  • Wet Smoke Residues Especially From Synthetic Materials
  • Fuel Oil Smoke Residues
  • Invisible Smoke Residues

Moving Resources

Cleaning a fire-damaged property involves considerable levels of movement of items and contents. There is a need to remove items from affected rooms to create room for cleaning and other restoration steps. Damaged materials also form debris that requires moving out of the facility. Our SERVPRO crews have resources to address all the moving needs that arise. We have hand trucks that help ease the movement of massive contents around the property. We also have heavy-duty plastic bags and other temporary storage materials to ensure the safe transfer of demolished materials from the house.

Best Deodorization Solutions

Bad odor is likely to linger in your property after a fire incident requiring elaborate deodorization efforts. Several approaches can help deodorize the affected property. However, some might not be very effective or might cause additional damages. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the types of odors and materials present to determine the best deodorization solution. In many cases, we use pairing agents and masking agents. The most common solutions are humectants, which combine with airborne odor particles leading to precipitation on surfaces. We also use neutralizers, which chemically change the odor particles.

A better understanding of fire damage helps produce better results. Call SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo at (310) 333-0654 to help restore your property. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
