West Hills Soot and Smoke Cleanup
When a house fire in West Hills burns slow and is fueled by food cooking on the range, the sooty mess and smell can be overpowering. The fire damage expanded to several adjoining rooms that required extensive demolition and then clean up. Our SERVPRO facility can warehouse the smoke damaged contents to both make more space for the structural rehab and also to remove the residues in a more controlled environment. An example is this dresser that is in the process of having a wipe down with a chemical sponge and good old-fashioned detergent and water. Light on the water, heavy on the elbow grease achieves the appearance shown in the After Photo. We can also clean more fragile or complicated possessions with immersion baths utilizing ultrasonic micro-bubbles, and an ozone chamber to eliminate pungent odors. We catalog all items removed from the house on our CCIS contents claim inventory service program, which also assists with the claims process.
