Keep Your Marina Del Rey Home Free of Fire Damage, Have a Fire Extinguisher Handy--SERVPRO Tip

SERVPRO Cools Down the Fire Damage to Your Marina Del Rey Residence

Fire damage in Marina Del Rey can vary in complexity and inconvenience. Many situations occur during a fire in any home. Yours is no different. First, there are the flames, and many things may be ruined. Some gasses are generated through the combustion process that leaves a layer of oily soot or smoke permeated surfaces--both hard and soft like carpets and fabrics. Then the fire department gets to your house and puts the fire out. They use water to do this. Often, depending on the incident, they also apply foam for extinguishing the flames. Your Marina Del Rey condo, home, or apartment probably needs the cooling effect of a professional fire damage restoration company like SERVPRO.

There are a couple of things that happened by the time the fire trucks leave the front of your house. Only one of them is good, and that is that the fire is out. Fire, water, smoke and soot damage as well as the possibility of whatever the foam, if used, produced leave a very unpleasant space behind.

First, you should call your insurance company. After, a call to a fire damage restoration company gets them there rapidly. The need to get all of the smoke, soot and foul air out of the house takes the second position of importance. Water removal is the first.

The inspector from SERVPRO goes throughout the house assessing everything that burned and all of the water damage that occurred. He will log fire or smoke damaged materials on the CCIS (Contents Claim Inventory Service) workup. This corporate generated software program will itemize, room by room, burnt, waterlogged, and soot covered materials and possessions. They will be ranked as salvageable, non-salvageable, or questionable. You and your insurance adjuster will finalize what will be discarded and what will be saved. SERVPRO is not an insurance company, but we do mitigate damages and assist with the claim and some paperwork.

After the inspections, the removal of all of the contaminated items, and the extraction of standing water can begin. Powerful pumps and wet vacuums vacate most of the water and moisture. All fire damaged materials are removed; they are wrapped to prevent cross-contamination, this includes all results of demolition.

The cleaning of all spaces, whether in the living areas or behind the walls are critical as everything must be cleaned and sanitized to restore a healthy interior environment. Following the simple steps, the restoration process can replace everything removed with new materials and all clothing and other fabric are thoroughly cleaned. All carpets are cleaned and sanitized if disposal is not required. This company strives to clean and restore the fire-damaged property, using disposal and replacement as a last resort. The aim is to save you money and get you back home to a pre-fire loss home "Like it never even happened."

When it heats up in your Marina Del Rey home, condo, or apartment call SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach at (310) 395-9050 for a cooling response.
