There is Fire Damage in My Residence, Where Do I Get Help?
Call SERVPRO Franchise Professionals to Restore Your West Hills Home After Fire Damage
A fire can start from any flame source and may get out of control, causing havoc in your West Hills home. Apart from the flames, the smoke emitted during a fire can continue creating problems. Another issue is the resulting water damage caused by the water used to extinguish the flames.
How does SERVPRO restore fire-damaged homes?
Fire damage in your West Hills home can be a significant problem because it can affect its structure, cause air quality problems, and lead to other issues like smoke damage. Our technicians can examine the damage and address issues like air quality and structural damage. We can remove the soot damaged items and debris. If there is water from firefighting efforts, we can use pumps to extract it. We also deep clean and deodorize affected homes.
Do I have to move out?
We consider the severity of the fire and smoke damage to determine if you should spend some nights at a hotel or other location. After a fire, the air quality may be reduced and may not allow you to remain in your house safely while our team is providing restoration services. If you have to leave your home, our team can perform a set of emergency procedures, including:
- Securing your home by performing a board up. Boarding up a house closes up openings caused by fire damage.
- Addressing electrical safety issues and restoring power to the house.
- Checking for any loss of integrity to structural components like roof trusses and floor joists.
- Restoring heat to the home if it is during the winter months.
Staying at a different location can give you a chance to remain safe during the restoration process. Make sure you retain all receipts because your insurance company can cover such costs. Your family's well-being is our priority, and our team can do its best to get you back in your residence as soon as it is safe.
How do you remove the smoke smell from a house?
SERVPRO has access to sophisticated deodorization equipment and products. We can use equipment like thermal foggers to remove the smell. We also use products such as odor counteracting beads to deal with smoke odors. Odor counteractants give off pleasant aromas to freshen up the areas we are restoring.
A fire can have a destructive effect on your home. Call SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 to clean up and restore your home quickly as possible.
