What Few People Know About Fire Damage Remediation in Los Angeles
Managing Fire Damage to Personal Possessions after a Los Angeles Residential Blaze
Harm to structures after a Los Angeles fire must be addressed for your home to be safely habitable again. Our team arrives with the knowledge, experience, and equipment to handle the cleanup needs for the spaces and building materials in your home. We can remove contaminated firefighting water, evaluate and dissolve residues, deodorize spaces, and disinfect as needed according to industry best practices.
Can We Also Restore Contents?
The “bones” of your Los Angeles home suffers fire damage, necessitating deep cleaning and potential structural repairs and rehabbing. On the other hand, the “heart” of your home is comprised of household goods and possessions, often holding deeply personal value to you or your family. Part of our job is to evaluate the contents, making recommendations to discard or to attempt restoration. Some decisions are clear, and others inhabit a middle ground.
What to Expect
SERVPRO utilizes a detailed Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to track items we remove for further assessment and possible restoration efforts. Remain confident that we use hard works and our training and experience to bring your fire damaged articles back to their previous appearance and function. We might work on items in an unaffected space in your home or garage. Often, we use our production facility for fire damage treatments and storage.
We Approach Contents Restoration with Integrity and Compassion
Our technicians do their best, but sometimes items do not come through specialized treatments as we hoped. Other times, SERVPRO might suggest that an item is too damaged to expect a satisfactory outcome, but you want us to try because of its significance to you. We follow a protocol to document situations where the unanticipated happens, or a valiant try was not enough to obtain the result you desired.
Communication Is the Key
You can rely on SERVPRO employees to act with integrity. Our communications with you about all of the items we packed-out are transparent and dynamic, reflecting the last steps taken. If you need access to a document or other item mid-project, we can find it for you to review and use if appropriate.
SERVPRO of Marina Del Rey / Westchester / El Segundo provides comprehensive fire damage management, including items like furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions we pack-out for safety and additional restorative actions. Call us at (310) 333-0654 for a fire damage assessment and plan.
