Do You Know How to Remediate House Fire Damage in Oakland?
Fire Damage in an Oakland Home Calls for Cleaning and Restoration Services
The National Fire Prevention Association states that fire departments in the U.S.A. respond to more than a thousand fires every day. A fire can start in your home unexpectedly and proliferate. It can cause structural damage in your home and leave residues like smoke, soot, and ash.
If your Oakland home has fire damage, it’s advisable to turn to a fire restoration company for help. No matter how large or little the extent of the destruction is, a restoration company like SERVPRO is equipped to handle fire cleanup and ensure that your home is safe to live in again. Fire and the residues left behind after extinguishing it impact certain areas of a home differently. Therefore, each affected area may need a unique strategy for restoring, cleaning, or rebuilding.
The extent of the fire damage may not be clear because it often occurs in areas that aren’t visible like the attic and behind walls, or may affect the plumbing or electrical systems. Fires can even ruin the surfaces or walls in different rooms from where they originated. Surfaces with soot and smoke damage require unique cleaning agents because typical household cleaning products may not be adequate or can cause extra damage. Our fire restoration professionals can address the damaged area and determine which contents and areas to restore and which ones to replace.
Here at SERVPRO, we offer cleaning and restoration services that help minimize fire damage claims. Replacing items is expensive for insurance companies. Another expensive option is resurfacing. Our technicians can repaint structural surfaces, recover upholstered contents, and refinish wooden contents. We seek to restore smoke-damaged materials to their preloss condition.
A significant part of the fire cleanup process concentrates on neutralizing smoke odors and purifying contaminated air. Our technicians use various types of equipment to clean and sanitize the air, making it safe to breathe in again. We can use a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum to remove small particles like soot from surfaces like floors, walls, and ceilings. We also use air scrubbers to eliminate odors and clean the air.
