East Foothills, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

As one of the smaller communities in the Santa Clara Valley, the East Foothills has become a primarily residential area for those avoiding the inner city of San Jose. With the dry conditions that can plague the area throughout the sum of the year, there is a potential increase in house fires and structure fires in the region. Wildfires are also a concern for area residents, which often requires substantial external cleaning and restoration work to overcome when not directly in the path of the migrating blaze.

Fire Damage Cleanup in East Foothills Homes 

Cleaning up after post-fire effects means addressing circulating soot particles in the house. These carcinogens can move quickly from one room to the next, traveling through pathways like the HVAC system to impact multiple rooms in a residence. Cleaning these affected surfaces involves numerous techniques and potent cleaning products in our inventory. The variances of methods depend on the exposed material, severity of the residue, and its composition. We can sample specific products to identify the best approach for each area to maximize our efficiency in cleaning installed materials rather than removing them.

Fire and Smoke Odor Removal for East Foothills

Addressing the lingering smoke odors in a house after a loss can also be a challenge. We have several strategies to address these concerns, namely the use of specific deodorization tools such as:

  • Thermal foggers
  • Hydroxyl generators
  • Ozone machines

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.
