Having a a fire break out in your place of business or residence is the most destructive disaster that can take place. In addition to the potential loss of property, there is also often damage done to the building and building materials. Even if you’re fortunate enough to put the fire out quickly, you can still be stuck with the smoke and soot left in its wake. Here at Ryan Peacock, Inc. we have the experience and equipment to clean up fire and smoke damage in the Cupertino area. One of the best ways to mitigate the damage soot and smoke can create is to respond quickly to prevent the odors from settling in too deeply. So give us a call to begin the restoration process once the structure has been cleared for reentry by the fire department.
If your property was lucky enough to escape the direct flames, soot and smoke will still leave a film on your electronics, clothing, furniture, building materials, and anything in the vicinity. The soot left behind is as dangerous to your property and health as it is inconvenient. If electronics have been exposed, they will cease to function and clothing and upholstery will reek of smoke as a constant reminder of your disaster. Let RPI remove and restore any items damaged by soot and smoke to get you back to normal.
It’s difficult to imagine a situation worse than the aftermath of a fire. First there’s the damage from the fire itself, the damage from the smoke and soot, as well as the damage from the water or other chemicals used to extinguish the fire. These types of damage can make a home uninhabitable or shut a business down for an undetermined amount of time.
The process of restoring fire damage has several steps that begin after the authorities give the green light that a property is safe to enter and is then typically followed by:
Smoke, a byproduct of fire, will corrode and stain different surfaces including counters, walls, and floors. Oftentimes, the steps that are taken for putting out a blaze might be more destructive than the fire itself. The way in which the fire restoration professionals deal with water damage, soot, and smoke will make all the difference in the the quality of the work and timeliness of the repairs.
Project managers direct our technicians to ensure the work is done properly and certify customer satisfaction. We supply cranes, heavy equipment and other required machinery to clear paths, remove debris, and facilitate the other restoration steps to be completed.
The damaged materials are stored and moved to assist in securing the fire department’s safe entry and the authorized personnel in the restoration process of fire damage. We also provide lighting, emergency power, climate control, and dumpsters to our customers when required by the job.
Fires are terrifying ordeals to encounter. There are a number of causes for fires like faulty wiring in a room, older electrical appliances malfunctioning, careless smokers, a burner on the stove being left unattended, etc. There is also of course the potential for things outside your house to cause it to catch fire. A gas line explosion, or a raging wildfire that is in your community could cause you to evacuate before the fire gets to your home. California has been plagued by wildfires that burn out of control due to the prolonged drought. Having people who know how to get you back on your feet after a fire is a vital part of the rebuilding process. You need skilled experts who have seen the variety of ways fire can ravage a home or business and will be able to assess the damage and then put a plan of action into place that will allow you to recover from the devastation. Don’t let a fire take away everything you’ve worked for or are working towards. Fire damage restoration is a necessity after such a disaster.
RPI knows that time is vital. Preventing the smell of smoke and soot from seeping into your home or office completely and altering the scent of the place permanently is something you need to avoid and to do so you need to call us as soon as it’s safe to enter the building. Having us on stand-by for when the fire department gives the all clear to begin work on repairing your home is the best way to get the process off on the right foot and allow your home to be remodeled into a good looking and clean smelling property. You can count on the experts at RPI to get the job done right.
As soon as work begins on the property, we will board up and secure the premises so as to avoid unauthorized entry. Soot cleanup, soot removal, and smoke restoration will be dealt with and the damaged items will be taken and cataloged. This is done so that any items you had that were damaged or destroyed by the fire can be catalogued and tracked so that your insurance company can get a proper estimate of the damage that was done to your property. In turn, they will be able to get you the proper payout to allow you to begin rebuilding your life.
Once all the damaged items are removed there will likely have to be some sort of water damage treatment done as the means by which the fire was extinguished will have likely impacted your building as well.
