Experiencing a house fire can be devastating and leave you completely traumatized. Once you have confirmed that your family is safe and have sorted out accommodations for the foreseeable future, you will need to start thinking about how to go about restoring your home. This process can be daunting, especially if the fire is large in scale. You will need the help of professionals like our team at Sunny California Restoration to guide you through this challenging process.
Understanding Fire Restoration
Fire damage remediation in Newhall properties is crucial to cleaning and repairing your home. Whether the fire was small and contained to one room or larger and affected multiple areas of your house, our experts are here to help you through it. We understand that fires can cause water damage from the firefighter response and soot, structural and electrical damage. That’s why we take a comprehensive approach to restoration, ensuring that every aspect of your home gets addressed. Our top priority is your family’s safety, so we guarantee that all soot and water damage is entirely cleared out.
The process should focus on your biggest concerns and needs as your home returns to its original condition. Our cleanup can include:
- Dry Out the Space
After a fire, acting quickly to prevent water damage and mold growth is crucial. Mold can begin forming within 24-48 hours, so removing any wet items like furniture and drying them outside is necessary. We can use a sump pump or wet-dry vacuum to remove standing water. We use fans and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process.
- We Clean Up the Soot
You can hardly bear the sight of your belongings covered in soot, but all is not lost. We can easily remove soot from hard surfaces with the right tools and techniques. We have potent cleaning agents that are delicate enough for even sensitive cleaning jobs.
- Board-Up to Protect Your House
You can feel like your home is vulnerable after a fire, so we work with you to give you some confidence that the situation will not worsen. We use boards to cover broken doors or windows to protect your home until we can replace them. If the fire damaged your roof, we cover gaps with tarps to keep out the elements.
- Taking Care of Your Damaged Contents
While we remove wet items or heavily soot-covered furniture during our initial cleanup, there are likely smaller items, like books, photos, and other personal belongings, that may be salvageable with focused cleaning. Our emergency pack-out service assists with cleaning what matters most to you.
- Overcoming the Odor
The smoke smell overwhelming your home can make it impossible to live comfortably, making it one of the priorities of our restoration process. To thoroughly deodorize the space, our fire recovery team may use ozone treatments to break down smoke odor molecules or thermal fogging to remove smells from fabrics.
Fires are a devastating situation for your life and your family. Leave the cleanup and the recovery to the experts like our Sunny California Restoration team that puts your priorities first. Give us a call today at (323) 805-8006.
