Fire Damage Is No Match for Skilled Restoration in Canoga Park
Call SERVPRO to Your Canoga Park Home for Fire Damage Cleanup
Fire damaged homes call for prompt attention so that you can get your life back in order as soon as possible. SERVPRO realizes that Canoga Park residents that recently experienced a house fire will have many emotions and a lot to think about. You may wonder if it is safe to enter your home, how you can go about the insurance claims process, and if everything is lost. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster, offering the prompt attention your property deserves!
When your Canoga Park home encounters fire damage, you need to remember several things, including:
- Never try cleaning electrical components or appliances that may have been close to heat, flames, or water.
- Never try shampooing upholstery and carpeting or washing painted surfaces and walls.
- Never turn on any lighting or ceiling fans because the wiring might be compromised.
- Never consume any beverages or food items that may have been near heat, flames, or water.
Water Restoration and Fire Cleanup Go Hand-in-Hand
Water removal services and moisture control are necessary for most fire-related emergencies to bring your property back to pre-fire condition. As first responders extinguish the flames, high-pressure water and possibly chemicals are used to speed up fire-fighting efforts. SERVPRO inspects all areas to locate moisture, and our water restoration technicians (WRT) work to pull up standing water and charred debris with powerful pumps and extraction tools.
SERVPRO always brings the right equipment for all fire cleanup projects to ensure the best results. We know that using professional equipment makes the difference in the results and cuts back on your claim's dollar amount. Time matters, so our industrial-grade equipment allows us to achieve our goals promptly.
Before cleaning surfaces and belongings, pre-testing gets done. We can determine the correct cleaning method and products to salvage whatever is possible by pre-testing materials and surface areas. Our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) are well-versed when it comes to handling soiling from wet or dry smoke, protein-based smoke, fuel-oil soot, and other stubborn residues.
Rebuilding After Fire Damage to Your Home
With significant restoration projects, you need skilled contractors to take care of all reconstruction work. Due to the charred building materials and possible issues with structural elements after a fire, the project may call for controlled demolition. Our SERVPRO team works with trusted contractors in the local area so that your property can get back to pre-fire condition "Like it never even happened."
We will also handle any temporary construction needs such as board-up and tarping to prevent further damage from the elements or vandals. Some of the various repair and reconstruction work that may be necessary with fire damage include:
- Drywall removal and replacement
- Carpet repair and installation
- Flooring repair (tile, marble, wood, linoleum)
- Roofing repair and replacement
- Painting and sealing
Before your project wraps up, our IICRC-certified team follows protocols to handle sanitizing and deodorizing of all surfaces. Not only does this step leave your interior clean and safe for your family and pets, but it also eliminates any foul smoke odors getting left behind as a reminder of the fire event that took place. Our Green Fleet comes stocked with a range of deodorants like odor-counteractant beads and EPA-registered cleaning agents. We also have equipment handy to eliminate stubborn soot odors, including thermal foggers, ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, air scrubbers, and hydroxyl generators.
