Move-Outs A Necessary Step For Large-Scale Fire Damage In Los Angeles
Move-Outs A Necessary Step For Large-Scale Fire Damage
No two fires are the same. How the blaze was treated, was it contained within a small area, the type of materials burned and whether the contents in the affected area are salvageable or not all influence restoration procedure. When fires burn at high temperatures, the structural integrity of your property can be put at risk. Secondary water-damage from fire-fighting efforts can also damage your furnishing, fixtures, and valuables.
When we get a call out to repair a property from fire damage in Los Angeles, they tend to be small, contained fires. We can cordon off the affected area, remove furniture to other areas of the house and set to work. However, if our fire technician finds evidence of structural damage, we may need to perform a move-out service.
Move-outs can be expensive, so at SERVPRO we always try to work onsite. However, when structural damage occurs, you and your family's safety is our first priority. The property must be vacated. We can then begin the cleanup phase using powerful, truck-mounted pumps to drain excess water. The damage that is deemed to be non-salvageable can be recorded and disposed of including building materials, furniture, clothes or fittings.
Our goal during cleanup is to prepare the affected area so that re-modeling contractors can begin restoring your home. To improve the indoor air-quality we can use Ozone generators to completely eliminate odors and harmful toxins left behind by fire. By clearing possessions and vacating the property, remodeling, repainting and cleaning work can be completed faster.
We understand that having to leave your property and stay in temporary accommodation can carry a heavy emotional burden. SERVPRO offers a pack-out service to make your situation as comfortable as possible. A pack-out service involves itemizing, removing and labeling your salvageable possessions. We can then move them to a remote facility for cleaning. In some cases, using advanced, ultrasonic equipment for jewelry and other valuables.
Large-scale fires are unforeseeable and can be extremely stressful. SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale has extensive experience in restoration. Call our 24/7 emergency center (818) 214-7958 now to arrange a service.
