Fire Damage Experts in Santa Monica Talk About the Importance of Cleaning and Restoration

One of the most recurrent types of insurance claims that occur in Santa Monica has to do with restoring your property after something burns. Even the smallest blaze can cause your house to suffer from extensive fire damage. Even with small fires, partially combusted particles in the form of smoke can travel throughout your building. Calling in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO can help you when mitigating smoke-related issues.

When working with you on your fire damage project in Santa Monica, our SERVPRO technicians know that cleaning and restoration services can reduce your insurance claim costs. The most expensive option for your insurance adjuster is a replacement. When an item is extremely damaged, it must be disposed of and replaced with a new one at the expense of your insurance provider. Cleaning and restoring things can help save them from having to be replaced, thus saving you and your insurance company money in the long run. 

Another option when restoring your burnt building materials and contents is resurfacing or refinishing. In certain situations, it is possible to remove the charred section of an item with sanding or sandblasting and resurfacing by staining or painting the object. We can repaint structural surfaces, and we can recover upholstered contents. Your wood contents are restorable. However, resurfacing and refinishing items can also become very costly if there are many affected items.

On the other hand, cleaning and restoration services are usually only a fraction of the cost of replacement or resurfacing. Our SERVPRO technicians often can apply the principles and elements of cleaning to restore materials to preloss condition and lessen the loss expense of the fire claim.

The first step we can take when mitigating your fire and smoke-related issues is to inspect your entire structure for potential problems carefully. Once we locate all of the smoke residues present, we can then figure out what type of soot and soils exist. Next, once we know what kind of residue we are working with, we identify the various surfaces that are affected so that we can pick the best cleaning procedure.

If your house Spaulding Square, Central Hollywood, or Weho ever gets affected by smoke residues call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050. We can restore your home to the way it was before, "Like it never even happened."
