There are Many Steps to Making a Fire-Damaged Los Angeles House Feel Like Home Again

Over the years, Los Angeles County homes have experienced many disasters from mud damages, flooding, and wildfires. Having qualified professionals available 24/7 to help when disasters strike can be critical to getting mitigation started as soon as we first arrive.

Assessment When It Is Safe to Inspect

It is not often immediately safe to begin fire restoration in Los Angeles homes after wildfire damage. Once the environment is deemed safe enough to form a damage assessment, this vital effort can catalog damages and impacted contents/exterior building materials. This inspection finds:

  • Exterior damage
  • Soot soiling
  • Air quality threats
  • Structural weaknesses

Surface Cleaning and Soot Removal

After wildfire damage, we clean the structure with wet and dry cleaning approaches to remove soot and smoke soils from building materials. Where these solids might have infiltrated a residence through openings or outside intakes for the HVAC system, cleaning is necessary for the house's interior and exterior.

Reconstruction and Building Envelope Repairs 

Rebuilding after wildfires often means addressing the concerns on the house's exterior, such as damaged siding, roofs, or other pieces of a structure's envelope. With a general contractor license and years of experience working in one of the largest counties in the country, this build-back can occur seamlessly after restoration and cleanup.

Because wildfires can be a significant issue for area homes and businesses, our local restoration team must prepare for these possibilities with fast mitigation solutions. Our SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park professionals provides water cleanup, surface cleaning, repairs, and odor removal to make it "Like it never even happened." Give us a call today at (213) 628-2000.
