Picking a Restoration Company That Works for You | SERVPRO® of Citrus Heights/Roseville
Homeowners are always encouraged to practice fire preparedness, but with winter approaching, now is an optimal time. The Red Cross has found that the most common time for home fires is winter.
While homeowners are advised to prepare for the moment of a house fire by creating an emergency escape plan, care should also be taken to plan for after the fire, too. By knowing what restoration company to work with, you will know who to call immediately after the flames are extinguished to begin reclaiming your home.
The 3 Main Elements of Fire Cleanup
Fires do not discriminate in what they damage, tearing through anything that is in their path. That is why choosing a restoration company that can clean your structure, contents and air quality are vital. By doing a thorough restoration, you can reclaim your home and recover from the traumatic events of a house fire. Here are the types of cleanups we specialize in:
The structure of your home can become dangerously damaged in a fire, especially if supporting walls or beams are affected. We have thorough testing processes that will allow us to assess how far the damage spreads and how severe it is. Then we will bring in our equipment to begin cleaning and reconstructing these elements of your home.
The contents of your home are important, and so is restoring them to their pre-fire condition. In many cases, this will be less expensive than fully replacing your belongings, and by utilizing both wet and dry cleaning methods, we can restore a variety of things. Whether you have fire-damaged art, upholstery, electronics or area rugs, we will be able to restore most of your belongings.
Lingering smoke and soot after a fire might cause unpleasant odors, but they can also cause negative health effects. For this reason, air quality cleanup is a very important part of the restoration process. By bringing in foggers and air scrubbers, we are able to fully remove these particles in lieu of simply covering up the scent.
