Fire Damage and Restoration

After the fire has been put out the adrenaline from the drama of the day has settled down - reality hits… What are you going to do with the damage that has occurred to your home or property? Well the first thing you should do is not panic. Did you know that remediation companies like SERVPRO of San Diego East can fix the state of your home almost entirely to the way it was?

The first thing you should do is call a remediation company like ours, you should especially call right away if your property was soaked to put out the fire. If your property was soaked through yourself or firefighters putting out flames then there will be additional steps that need to be done in order to get your home back to normal. Fire to an infrastructure already causes the foundation to weaken, adding water to the mix makes the structure even more vulnerable.

Once the water has been dried with dehumidifiers and fans the next step is to demolition the structure that has been damaged, this is typically a quick phase in the process. Afterwards we begin reinstating the infrastructure of the property - here at SERVPRO we call this the rebuilding phase. Finally your property will be up and running again.
