SERVPRO teams getting ready for the day. Fire damage restoration services by SERVPRO are the way to go for your home. We are ready at a moment's notice.

Fire Restoration Obstacles for Restorers

When SERVPRO professionals are made aware of a fire loss situation, it is imperative to move quickly to help. We have experienced Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians available 24/7 to help after first responders extinguish a fire.

Structural Integrity

One of the initial obstacles to fire restoration in San Jose is the property's structural integrity. Fires in the house can weaken flooring and ceiling assemblies, which could lead to collapse or failure when pressure is applied. We assess the condition of these elements and weakened areas of the house to install temporary construction reinforcement or begin controlled demolition where necessary.

Indoor Air Quality

Another obstacle to the restoration process is the air quality in the work environment. While initially very volatile with the circulation of soot and smoke solids, other parts of the recovery process can regulate these conditions. Our SERVPRO professionals must keep filtration equipment available to control threats in the house to indoor air quality.

Soot and Smoke Damage

Soot is a byproduct of combusting materials during a disaster. With various compositions ranging from moist deposits to dry, chalky films, we have several products capable of overcoming soils and preserving the underlying building materials.

Needed Repairs and Reconstruction

Because we have a contractor license, any required construction and build-back services do not have to hinder restoration and recovery. Keeping this next phase in-house rapidly transitions to reconstruction needs to shorten customer restoration time dramatically. This could include:

  • Replacing wall systems
  • Reinstalling ceiling materials
  • Repainting and refinishing
  • Returning removed contents to the house

Fires represent some of the most destructive and volatile conditions that residences have to face, making it essential to have professionals respond quickly to help. Working directly with your insurance company, we can provide lasting fire restoration solutions to get you back home quickly. Call SERVPRO of NE San Jose at (408) 834-7663.
