Eagle Rock Art Gallery Sustains Fire Damage

Fire damage can strike your home or business at any time. There are many potential fire hazards at any given time inside of a building. However, there is no use fretting over every single one; somethings can always be out of control. What is essential is to respond fast when a fire breaks out, to help minimize the damage that does happen.

The fire damage in the Eagle Rock art gallery broke out due to an electrical wiring mishap.  According to Mark Christler, the owner of the gallery, he lost "51 years of work" was completely lost during the fire. The interior of the building, along with the ceiling, were both beyond salvaging.

Christler has been an "Artist in Los Angeles [his] whole life." Imagine the devastation of losing a lifetime of artistic work; he must have been a man with no hope. However, when SERVPRO came to his door, he was given a little piece of that life back when our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) remediated the gallery. "SERVPRO came out and did a fantastic job...Great work, great guys. They did it all from start to finish."

Here at SERVPRO, we understand how heartbreaking it must have been for Christler to lose so much during the fire. So, when we got the call, we rushed as fast as we could to his gallery to get to work. Inside of the building, "structural material was removed and replaced, including drywall, windows and joints." Part of remediating fire damage is making sure that you, "Feel like it never even happened." 

For Christler, we cannot give him back the art that he lost, but our technicians did their best to give him a new gallery free of the reminder of the fire. "It looks better than it did before, so I love SERVPRO." 

At SERVPRO, we're about more than just remediation. We're about making our customers happy. When we heard that Christler lost so much in the fire, it was our goal to remediate a space that would bring him joy and happiness, and our technicians did it. We're proud to have helped him reclaim such a valuable place and give him a new space to create artwork.
