Fixing Fire Damage Fast: Our Fresh Start Promise
A fire does not have to hit your home to require fire damage restoration. Take this restoration story from a Los Angeles customer.
During the 2008 Sayre fires, a Los Angeles customer followed instructions given by fire marshals to leave all doors and windows open to her residents before evacuation. Upon returning to her home she found it left in a state of despair.
Her home did not ignite in a single flame, but it was still soaked in water from preemptive measures, and it was covered in ash from the neighboring fire. Fortunately for her, she had our fire damage restoration Los Angeles team on her side.
The elite training we go through makes us equipped in water, ash, smoke, and odor removal from all types of home materials.
Our fire damage restoration Los Angeles team uses specialized wet vacuums and surface-penetrating chemicals to rid the surfaces and flooring materials of those pesky little substrates.
See, smoke is an aerosol, which means that tiny particles are suspended within the hot gas. As the gas makes contact with surfaces it deposits the payload leaving behind discoloration and odor, that is unsightly and over bearing.
For our customer, the stability of her life was anchored in her home, so it was pivotal that we returned her to a state of mind that was better than the day fire struck her Los Angeles neighborhood.
We removed the odor, replaced any material that was not salvageable—this included a fabulous new paint job—and the best part is, her insurance covered it!
Fire Remediation: Staying Cool Before and After
When it comes to fire damage, the faster the response the less cost the restoration will be. Here are some great tips from Zach in order to keep you safe, and keep cost down.
- Install smoke detectors to bust small fires without big help.
- Test smoke detectors monthly in order to replace batteries as needed.
- Keep fire distinguishers handy.
“There are some accidents we cannot avoid, so in the event of a bigger fire you’re safety is the number one priority. Have a contingency plan and stick to it,” warns Zach.
If you live alone, or have a family, make sure to discuss an escape plan in case of a disaster. Make sure to get out the house safely and quickly as to limit the amount of smoke you may inhale.
Stay low to the ground, and feel around for heat behind every door. As soon as you safely can, call emergency services.
After the fire is extinguished, and fire marshals give you the ok to return home, call the fire damage restoration Los Angeles experts at 911 Restoration.
