SERVPRO Says Be Alert For Wild Fires

Calabasas Fire Damage Restoration Steps by SERVPRO

When Calabasas fire damage has impacted your home, securing help for cleanup and restoration is strongly advised. There are many steps that a professional fire damage remediation company like SERVPRO will take to restore your property to its original condition.

1. Inspection And Evaluation. This process enables the fire damage restoration experts to determine the extent of your damages. We utilize a Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) technology to generate a room-by-room inventory listing. This categorizes all items and materials as salvageable, non-salvageable, or questionable. You and your insurance adjuster make the final determinations. This simplifies and aids for your contents settlement. With this information the contractors can give you a cost estimate and draft a detailed, customized strategic plan that outlines how the recovery work will be completed. But the first, and very urgent step, to mitigate losses is extracting standing water from the firefighting work. Smoke and soot damage will vary depending on the severity of the blaze.

2. Packing Out. Another important component of the Calabasas fire damage restoration process is packing out. Items like shoes, clothing, art, furniture and electronics will typically require restoration work. For this reason, contractors will document, pack up, and remove these materials from the property. They will be transported to our facility where the cleaning and restoration work will be completed. If the fire and smoke damage are minimal, the cleaning process can be completed on-site.

3. Structural Fire And Smoke Damage Restoration. Much of the fire and smoke damage restoration process will involve vacuuming, dry brushing and cleaning walls, carpets, and floors. Contractors will also complete deep cleaning work to eliminate all smoke damage. The remediation experts will utilize special solutions and equipment (foggers) to neutralize unpleasant smoke odors. The equipment will also help eliminate biological and chemical contaminants. Thermal generators, hydroxyl generators, and thermal foggers are some of the devices that will be used to restore the home if necessary.

4. Contents Restoration. These services involve deodorizing, cleaning, and preserving the property owner's furnishings on-site, without shipping out to the SERVPRO cleaning facility. Our technicians will offer restoration services for electronics, documents, and all other appliances and equipment subjected to fire damage. If sensitive computer equipment is involved, we can farm it out for specialized cleaning.
