Los Angeles, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

With so many high-rise structures purposed into hundreds of homes for Los Angeles residents, a single fire in any of these individual properties could impact dozens or even hundreds of other families. Our response to fire emergencies can help to thwart the spread and severity of post-fire effects. With many certified restoration technicians available on our roster, we can respond 24/7 to fire loss incidents that impact homes, businesses, and accommodations throughout the city. 

Soot Cleanup from Los Angeles Homes 

Partial combustion of organic matter and fuels like wood can result in a high concentration of soot particles spreading throughout the property. With pathways like the HVAC system and open-air floor plans, many materials and contents within your home can become coated with a thick smoke residue. Depending on the composition of this soiling and the affected material underneath, the approach to remove this threat varies multiple times. Some of the most common techniques for managing these soils include:

  • Soda blasting
  • Detergents and solvents
  • Agitative cleaning
  • Dry vacuuming
  • Controlled demolition

Smoke Odor Removal in Los Angeles Properties

One of the final steps of fire restoration for Los Angeles homes is removing smoke odors from the property. Often, this involves the use of multiple products and tools. Thermal fogging and ozone machines are among the most commonly used, but only after counteractants like beads and granules have reduced the severity of the effect in work areas.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

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.
