Emeryville, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
While it might not be one of the largest cities in California, Emeryville is a growing community in Alameda County because of its proximity to Silicon Valley and the University of California. As such, we expect emergencies and disasters to occur regularly that keep our roster active in the area. We work closely with area insurance providers to begin vital mitigation efforts and emergency services as soon as possible once a fire gets extinguished in a residence.
Reducing the Impact of a Fire Loss on Emeryville Homes
Multiple steps can get taken to reduce the total loss experienced after a fire takes place. Often, mitigation and emergency services make up a considerable portion of the restoration process. These actions can often vastly reduce out-of-pocket expenses and the need for tear-out or reconstruction. Mitigation can involve multiple types of actions and approaches depending on the damage to your home, the kind of fire loss effects remaining, and any materials impacted by the lingering presence of soot and smoke residues.
Cleaning Smoke and Soot Residues from the House
These residues can be among the most challenging obstacles for our professionals to face, especially considering there is no universal removal technique. The choice in products or practices used depends on the underlying material and the severity of the soot presence. These options include:
· Media blasting
· Controlled demolition

Step 1: Emergency Contact
We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
