Why SERVPRO Helps Save More Items Through Cleanup after Fire Damage in Santa Ana

If a fire razes your home, you are likely to face many uncertainties like whether you can save the items affected by the blaze and whether the home can be occupied within a reasonable period. Even the small fires involving a faulty electrical appliance or kitchen stove can cause widespread damages all over the property making it uninhabitable. If a professional restorer does the cleanup, it is possible to save many items and make your Santa Ana home livable within a reasonable period.

One of the factors that determine the outcome when restoring fire damage in Santa Ana is the evaluation done. Without proper evaluation, some steps that should be carried out immediately may be delayed worsening the level of damages. The evaluation also helps determine what contents can be saved so that they can be the focal point. Our SERVPRO technicians classify items as salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable. We remove the unsalvageable ones for disposal then focus on cleaning the salvageable ones on site while the questionable ones are cleaned offsite where we can give them more attention.

A good approach when facing widespread damages is to move out items from the property to ease the process of cleanup and rebuilding of areas gutted by the fire. Move outs also protect the contents in the house from secondary damages that might happen during the restoration process. Our SERVPRO technicians use an electronic CCIS, Content Claim Inventory Service, when packing items for the move out. With this, we are able to classify items room by room reducing chances of loss.

Apart from the contents, fire also affects building materials used in fixtures such as cabinets in the affected areas. Such damage can occur through heat action, scorching by flames, and deposit of smoke residues. Restorative cleaning can help save such items instead of tearing them down and throwing them away. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced cleaning approaches such as soda blasting which strips away the charred surfaces leaving the surface clean. Since the process utilizes sodium bicarbonate, it also deodorizes the affected areas.

To reduce the stresses of restoring your fire-damaged home call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South. You can reach us at (714) 558-7772 any time.

How SERVPRO Removes Smoke Odors From Your Fire Damaged Santa Ana Home

12/5/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO How SERVPRO Removes Smoke Odors From Your Fire Damaged Santa Ana Home Smoke affects every room in your home after a fire. Even the rooms that were not fire damaged.

Fire Damage Experts in Santa Ana Talk About Deodorization Equipment

If a fire ever breaks out inside your Santa Ana home, the heat and the smoke coming from the fire can destroy your contents and building materials. Smoke is made up of partially combusted particles and can add problems to any existing fire damage. Once these partially combusted substances come into contact with cooler surfaces, particles in the form of soot residue can adhere to the material. Smoke can also penetrate deeply into porous materials such as fabrics and cause unpleasant aromas to fill the building. When dealing with any fire damage scenario, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO so that we can find all of the existing problems.  

Some problems that exist after something burns inside your structure may not be readily noticeable. As a part of any fire damage project in Santa Ana, our SERVPRO estimators check every part of the building for smoke-related problems. We use the industry's most advanced technology to determine what we can save through cleaning and re-finishing and what must be removed and replaced. We have access to industrially advanced equipment that helps us remove soils and soot residues as well as eliminate burnt odors. Should foul odors remain after removing burnt items and completing the cleaning process, we make use of deodorization equipment to neutralize or mask the aromas.  

Our SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and have the experience to find all of the places smoke could have affected. Our highly trained team knows how fire and smoke behave, so they know exactly where to look for potential problems. When smoke damage is severe, our crew knows that they have tools like ultra-low volume foggers and ozone machine that they can use.  

ULV foggers are designed to send chemicals to the atmosphere in the same manner smoke traveled. The chemicals get broken down into small particles and can penetrate as deeply into porous materials as the smoke did. Ozone machines send out O3 molecules into the air that react with malodor particles and neutralize them. If you ever notice smoke damage at your house, call SERVPRO of Santa Ana South at (714) 558-7772 24/7.

Fast Water Removal After Flooding in Your Santa Ana Home

With emergencies that affect your Santa Ana home, you need an assurance that the right professionals can respond quickly to the situation to protect the structure and your belongings from significant damages. Our team of technicians offers a 24-hour response to all manner of circumstances that threaten your property. With flooding, the timeline is condensed dramatically, posing substantial threats to construction materials and the contents of your house without the appropriate mitigation techniques.

From the moment that flood damages begin within your Santa Ana home, the first call that a homeowner should make is to our SERVPRO rapid response team. The moment that construction materials get exposed to the floodwaters, they begin to saturate. The longer that this situation persists, the worse that this saturation becomes until materials like drywall swell and bloat within 24 hours of direct exposure.

With the moisture present throughout the affected areas of your home, even those without constant contact with the excess floodwaters along the flooring, you run the risks of allowing mold growth on the property. Our SERVPRO mitigation team can respond quickly to your initial call and utilize our extensive training to obtain our IICRC certifications to protect your home as efficiently as possible.

Our truck mounted pumps within our Green Fleet can extract water from flood-damaged properties at a rate of 300 psi. This fast extraction can help our technicians get to the critical drying stage fast. We use advanced technology like thermal imagery cameras to determine the presence of moisture pockets through materials and inaccessible areas to direct our drying equipment to the right locations for the fastest possible moisture removal.

Why SERVPRO WHY SERVPRO for Mold Remediation in Santa Ana? We Guarantee Positive Results Why SERVPRO? For Mold Remediation in Santa Ana Our Green Fleet Arrives Stocked and Ready

How Mold Can Damage and Affect Your Santa Ana Home

Emergencies and disasters do not threaten every Santa Ana house, but when it is your home that gets affected, you want some assurance that the problems and effects can get restored quickly. When it comes to restoring and remediating mold growth in your residence you want that stress-free feeling that all will be okay. Because mold growth poses risks to construction materials used to build your house, the contents of affected areas, and the people that live in the house with you, all desire a safe and secure environment.

Overcoming mold damages to your Santa Ana home requires expertise and the right equipment to handle the widespread effects that occur. From the moment that you discover mold growth in your home, you should give our emergency response team a call so that our SERVPRO technicians can help you limit the spread of the colony and its effects on the at-risk areas and occupants of your property.

One of the points that are critical to remember is that attempting mold removal on your own can not only often be ineffective, but it could be hazardous on its own. With over a dozen common varieties of mold and fungus that can damage your home, there is not a single method of removing them all effectively. In some cases, chemicals and cleaning products can cause problematic reactions when used incorrectly.

A fast response can help limit the spread of the colony and preserve construction materials and the contents of your house. As a colony grows and thrives, it requires organic material as a food source. The stronger and more widespread the organisms become, the weaker and more vulnerable the affected materials become. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you to remove the colonies, and work to preserve the affected materials rather than rely on reconstruction.

While you might believe that mold growth is nothing to concern yourself with, there are substantial risks with allowing a colony to grow and thrive on your property. Trust our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South restoration and remediation specialists to remove the fungi, "Like it never even happened." Contact us anytime at (714) 558-7772.
