How Remediation Companies Restore Your Home After Fire Damage in Los Angeles

Fire damage includes smoke, soot, water, and burned and melted items. SERVPRO has the equipment and expertise to restore your property after a fire.

Saving Cost of Restoring Fire Damage in Los Angeles By Cleaning Contents

House fires cause a wide range of damages because of the smoke, heat, and flames, which are the three essential elements of all fires. Discoloration is common on different surfaces such as walls, floors, and ceilings. It usually manifests as yellowing a few days after the blaze. Permanent discoloration in any porous stone surfaces such as marble, travertine or granite in your Los Angeles property is also possible because of the acidic nature of soot.

The cost of replacing everything affected by fire damage in Los Angeles properties is prohibitive. Refinishing surfaces is also expensive so to save money you can opt for restorative cleaning. We offer professional restoration services that deal with the effects of the fire "Like it never even happened."

Since the damages vary in depending on the affected item or surface, different cleaning approaches are necessary for the same loss environment. For light-to-medium non-grease-based residue, our SERVPRO technicians rely on dry cleaning methods. We use vacuums or dry cleaning sponges to remove the light debris. Wet cleaning is better when removing moderate or heavy residues from the affected area. We can use plain water or water mixed with cleaning agents. In case we do not want to saturate the area, we opt to spray and wipe. This method helps protect the affected area from further damages that oversaturation with water would cause.

Some materials like upholstery present unique challenges during restorative cleaning. They might shrink if wet or their dyes may bleed if oversaturated. Our SERVPRO technicians tackle these issues by using foam cleaning instead of the other forms of wet cleaning. This simple approach involves agitating the cleaning solution in a bucket to produce foam. The technician then scoops the foam only to use it when cleaning the soiled area. Sometimes we also use pump-up sprayers to create foam from ready-to-use shampoo.

Restoring damages after a fire should not be too expensive. Call SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale at (818) 244-6005. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
