Taking Care of Complexities During Fire Damage Cleanup in Martinez Homes

When we receive notification from a distraught property owner regarding a fire damage incident, we collect as much information as possible about it. Our customer service team can ask you several questions to gauge the intensity of the disaster at your residence, such as what time the fire occurred, what caused it, and if you have tried to do any cleanup after the incident.

After the call, our SERVPRO fire restoration crew can arrive at your property within an hour to evaluate the fire damage in your Martinez home. We can then take the necessary steps to restore the property to its pre-fire damage condition. Quickly beginning the cleanup process can prevent smoke residues, water, and soot from causing additional damage to your belongings and home.

As fire restoration experts, we know the guidelines to follow when restoring your home so we can achieve the desired results. Some factors can create complexities that can affect the restoration procedure. For instance, air currents can create problems that affect the proper dispersal of deodorizing sprays. To prevent this problem, our technicians can block off air current paths such as doors, windows, and vents so that deodorizers get to the intended surfaces.

When restoring a fire-damaged home, getting rid of smoke residues is essential. When the smoke settles on surfaces as a residue, it is known as soot. Soot residues may contain various kinds of acids because the sulfides and chlorides in smoke mix with moisture or with the humidity in the air to form acids. If acidic residues remain on materials for extended periods, they can cause corrosion and discoloration. Our SERVPRO team can use tools like dry cleaning sponges to remove the smoke residues. Our restorers can also agitate items such as drapes and upholstered fabrics to remove smoke particles.

The fire may have affected the masonry surfaces of your property, such as brick, fieldstone, and cinder block. If that is the case, we can use the right cleaning products and techniques to clean them. For instance, the materials found in fieldstone might react with cleaning products, and the reaction may cause a change in the stone’s color. By identifying the affected masonry surface correctly, our crew can choose a product that can clean the particular surface effectively.

We complete the fire damage repair according to the set timelines. After completing the restoration process, we allow property owners to conduct a walkthrough and check if we have completed the restoration work as required.
