SERVPRO is Mindful of Preexisting Damages and Post-Damage Usage of Electronics during Fire Restoration

Fire can damage electrical appliances slightly or extensively by soiling them with soot and other residues. For the salvageable ones, restoration normally takes wet cleaning the surfaces and polishing. However, precautions are necessary when completing these tasks in your San Jose home to ensure the best outcomes.

At the minimum, the electronic items should still work after fire restoration at your San Jose is over. The best outcome would be restoring preloss conditions, including maintaining the highly polished surfaces that most electronic appliances have. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the type of soiling, material, and even the item's function to determine the best course for the restoration.

Appropriate handling of appliances helps improve the outcome of:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Water & fire damage restorations
  • House fire clean up

Before starting the restoration processes, SERVPRO technicians confirm whether continued use is necessary, thus expediting the processes. For instance, your refrigerators and freezers may develop issues if they remain powered off over extended durations. If the soiling is minor and the appliances contain food, our technicians expedite the restoration of power. 

For all electronics, various tips are useful in improving restoration outcomes, including:

Our SERVPRO technicians also perform some disassembly, such as removing knobs and check vent hoods and any hidden crevices or recessed parts.
