SERVPRO Restores Seal Beach Home with Challenging Fire and Smoke Damage
While wildfires are a common cause of fire and smoke damage in Seal Beach properties, they are not the only reason for fire damage restoration services in the Seal Beach area. Common reasons for house fire clean-up include electrical fires, kitchen mishaps, overloaded outlets, and unattended candles.
Initial Actions During Fire Restoration by SERVPRO in This Seal Beach Home
The Before Photo looks like a black and white photograph due to the amount of fire and smoke damage in this Seal Beach living room. SERVPRO technicians inspect the worksite area to determine if they can work safely and if any emergency repairs need to get made. For example, the large hole in the ceiling clearly shows daylight, which indicates a hole in the roof caused by the house fire. Clean-up cannot commence until this area gets tarped to protect its structure while it undergoes fire damage restoration by SERVPRO.
SERVPRO Routinely Performs Controlled Demo in Fire Damaged Homes in Seal Beach
The trained and certified techs from SERVPRO know that building materials with fire and smoke damage beyond the point of fire restoration services require removal from the home. The techs removed the charred sheetrock and flooring from the Seal Beach home to begin the prep work to get the structure ready for the necessary reconstruction and fire remediation repairs.
Air Quality Improvements in Seal Beach Home Before Fire Damage Restoration is Complete
Anywhere soot particles go within this Seal Beach home, they cause fire odors to persist. Neutralizing these scents at the molecular level is the only way to remove them from the Seal Beach property, as merely covering up the smell does not work in the long term against the smoke damage. Worse, the soot can hitch a ride to other areas of the home and create odors in places where no fire damage previously existed.
SERVPRO technicians have many equipment and techniques to apply during fire damage restoration to eliminate odors. Thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators are just two devices SERVPRO technicians rely on for odor removal in Seal Beach homes. Another must-have piece of equipment is the air scrubber. These mini-powerhouses run continuously in Seal Beach homes during the fire damage restoration process and capture airborne soot particulate and trap it within its extensive collection of HEPA filtration.
SERVPRO Has Specialized Cleaning Solutions and Methods Against Smoke Damage in Seal Beach Properties
The fireplace in the home had no direct fire damage. However, the brickwork porosity means that during the fire, when the hot air expanded, odorous soot particles could be embedded within, and this area of the Seal Beach home requires detailed house fire clean-up techniques. SERVPRO technicians have specific cleaning agents for use on brick and masonry that clean without harming the brickwork's surface.
As seen in the After Photo, this Seal Beach home, SERVPRO techs have completed the fire and smoke damage restoration and clean-up. The house is now ready for the necessary reconstruction to bring it to live-in ready status for the homeowner again.
