How Threatening is Smoke Damage to Echo Park Residences?

Smoke damage can often be one of the most challenging obstacles for Echo Park homes after a fire damage incident, making it vital to gain the proper perspective on the situation with thorough inspections. Our technicians can determine the spread and severity of the fire and smoke damages to choose the best cleaning and restoration approach for the property. Soot and smoke residue soils can be threatening to underlying materials, placing urgency on the cleaning and removal of these residues. 

Are Repairs Necessary During Fire Restoration in Echo Park Homes?

Damage to your home that requires fire restoration services often also involves some degree of repairs and reconstruction. Structure fires spreading through a house can overwhelm porous materials like drywall and flooring fast to cause irreparable harm. In these situations, controlled demolition is the only suitable solution. We can also repair vulnerabilities in the house’s construction to complete house fire clean up services by reinstalling removed and discarded materials.

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

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

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)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

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.
