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

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 determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
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
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
