Alum Rock, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
As Alum Rock continues to grow and thrive as an independent community within the larger city of San Jose, our smaller size compared to the city has not slowed the need for restoration and mitigation when disasters strike. We have a full division of fire restoration professionals capable of reaching compromised homes and businesses throughout the community 24/7, allowing us to begin the vital mitigation services that reduce loss.
Fire Damage Repairs in Alum Rock Homes
Most fire loss situations ultimately require some degree of repairs and reconstruction to make the loss “Like it never even happened.” Instead of waiting for schedules to open for subcontractors to implement the needed repairs and reconstruction for a home, you can take advantage of the full-service solutions offered by our SERVPRO team. Controlled demolition is one area where our contractors can immediately act, allowing us to remove compromised portions of ceiling, flooring, and wall systems that could collapse and cause injuries.
Smoke Odor Removal in Alum Rock
Addressing the lingering smoke odors in a residence after a loss incident gets restored involves several products and tools in our recovery inventory. We begin by continuing our air filtration and environmental cleaning with air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators. Odor counteractants like beads and granules can also impact the severity of smoke smells before implementing final deodorization efforts with foggers and ozone machines.

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 carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
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 final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
