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

· Solvents/detergents

· Controlled demolition

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

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 carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

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 final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
