Fire Damage Restoration In West Beverly Hills
Having some of the best-known addresses in the world does not protect West Beverly Hills homes from a disaster like extreme weather or a fire. When a fire does happen, owners must bring in a restoration company to begin work as quickly as the fire department determines it is safe.
Preventing further fire damage to West Beverly Hills homes often requires emergency services that secure the residence from exposure to physically damaged items, smoke residues, and additional threats. SERVPRO restoration teams train extensively to eliminate these threats and provide the best environment possible for technicians and owners as they work to clean and restore the residence.
The results of fire are different in every home, depending on the temperature and speed of the fire, and what burned. Some tasks are common to most homes, though, and our technicians take each step carefully.
First, they examine the home and board up any broken windows, doors, and other entry points burned into the home by the fire. It prevents intrusions by the weather, animals, and human trespassers.
Next, SERVPRO technicians set up their source of electricity to power lights, heaters, vacuums, and other equipment.
Team members perform the next steps simultaneously. Several set up the equipment to dry the home from the water used to extinguish the fire. Others demolish and remove all property not considered salvageable. If there is a property that can be restored and might be useful in temporary housing, then additional team members clean that immediately for the owner’s use.
Now, technicians clean the structure of the home and deodorize it. That includes removing structural property like drywall and ceiling tiles to clean the wall framing and other structural supports to include those in the attic or crawlspace.
These are the initial steps each team takes to preserve as much of each home and property as possible. There are several steps, though, that homeowners can take before the restoration team arrives at their residence.
• Clean soot and residue from live plants. It reduces the damage and may keep some of them alive.
• Limit movement in the home to prevent grinding particles into carpets and floors.
• If in the home for any reason, keep hands clean to avoid transferring residues from one room to another.
