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

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

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)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

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

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 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.
