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

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)

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

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
