Fire Damage Cleanup in Your Agoura Home
How Professionals Can Perform Quick Fire Damage Cleanup in Your Agoura Home
According to data from the National Fire Protection Association, damaging fires occur every 24 seconds in the U.S.A. Residential fires can cause costly destruction and bodily injury to the affected persons. Dealing with a fire emergency is unplanned and stressful.
After a fire damages your Agoura home, you can trust SERVPRO franchise professionals to deal with the aftermath. Cleaning up your home after a fire incident can present some challenges. A burning house is actually multiple complex reactions between various elements, including:
• The type of materials that are burning
• The amount of oxygen, heat, and moisture present in the building
• Airflow patterns in the home
• The type of smoke residues present
• The types of surfaces that heat and smoke impact
The way these elements interact as the fire progresses to determine how difficult it is to clean and restore a home. Our restorers consider several factors to determine how challenging it can be to eliminate the smoke residues. Some factors we consider include the age of the surface, amount of heat, air pressure, and the type of material that burned.
We provide structural and content cleaning services for homes with fire damage. Structural cleaning involves cleaning the house itself. Our team can use dry cleaning sponges to clean walls and ceilings, including the baseboards and crown molding. We can also clean doors, windows, and floors with soot damage. In some cases, we can use soft detergents to clean ceilings and walls.
Our content cleaning services include washing all soft goods like drapes, garments, bedding, upholstery, and carpets. We also clean shelving, bookshelves, light fixtures, and furnishings. Some high-value items like artwork and electronics require restoration by a specialist. We can work with your insurance claims representative to help you identify such things and locate and competent restorer.
Smoke contains carbon particles, and the smoke odor can persist as long the particles remain in your house. We can ventilate your home to allow the air to flow freely. Our SERVPRO team can place fans in the affected rooms to allow for faster ventilation. We can also use thermal foggers to remove the odor. Thermal fogging involves using strong deodorizers that permeate everywhere the smoke traveled, eliminating the odor “Like it never even happened.” Our restorers do all it takes to return a home to its pre-incident state.
