Wild Fire Approaching Roof-Tiled Homes Wild Fires Threats from Damage, Water, and Smoke Is Real for the Agoura Area--SERVPRO Is Ready to Help

What to Expect After Wildfire Damage to Your Agoura Home

The wildfire damage in Southern California, including the Agoura area, is in a word: devastating. The first few days, residents breathed a collective sigh of relief that the winds stayed down. However, that changed, and strong winds have begun to challenge the firefighters' efforts.

SERVPRO technicians are community members, and they know the danger and havoc that wildfire damage leaves behind in Agoura homes. They approach the fire loss cleanup with compassion to help homeowners by finding restorable items and prepping the site for any necessary reconstruction.

Why SERVPRO? for Wild FireWild Fire Help
When Pacific Gas and Electric shut off electricity to the area preemptively, this can delay cleanup efforts. SERVPRO technicians bring their own generators along with all the equipment necessary to remove debris, perform restoration on items, and assist homeowners with coordinating with their insurance adjusters on each phase of the restoration services process. We can categorize fire and smoke losses into structural or content.

Smoke Damage May Be Deceiving
One of the worst things homeowners encounter is finding items in their homes that, although untouched by flames, have severe smoke or water damage. SERVPRO technicians ask property owners to let them know particular things to look for, as it is usually unsafe for homeowners to be present onsite. It is vital to engage a professional restoration services company in the cleanup as they have the necessary safety equipment to touch soot and waterlogged items that have the potential to cause illness without precautionary measures for handling. In the process of becoming IICRC certified, the technicians learn specialized methods and have the equipment to restore many possessions.

Controlled Demolition is a Fact of Fire Loss Cleanup
During the mitigation of fire damage in the home, it is standard procedure to cut away charred sheetrock and open wall cavities. Homeowners sometimes arrive to inspect and find it already done in a mangled manner as firefighters often perform this action to ensure smoldering materials are not within wall cavities and confirm they successfully extinguished the fire.
