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 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)
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)
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
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
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.
