Smoke Damage Caused By Fire in San Diego

Fire Trailer SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW / Coronado (619) 435-0365

In the wake of a fire that has covered homes with smoke and ash, it’s important to begin clean up as soon as possible in order to prevent permanent damage or discoloration from soot residue.

Valley Fire

Here are some tips for fire victims facing clean up

• Ventilate the home. Place a box fan in an open window to draw the air and dust out.
• Clean from top to bottom. Start with the ceilings, walls and fixtures, and work your way down to the contents of the room, then to the floor.
• Vacuum floors and upholstery. Make sure your vacuum cleaner has a high efficiency filter. Otherwise, you risk blowing soot back into the air.
• Some draperies, clothing and machine-washable items may be laundered. Use a mild alkaline cleaner to neutralize the acid in the soot. Fine clothing should be dry cleaned.
• If the damage and residue are heavy, it may be best to hire a professional to thoroughly restore your home and belongings.
• Check with your insurance company to see if smoke damage from outdoor sources is covered by your policy.
• Professional restoration technicians know that damage increases and restoration costs escalate the longer neutralization, corrosion control and cleaning is delayed. When homeowners prolong the restoration of their home, they extend the effects brought on by the smoke exposure.

"SERVPRO was a pleasure to hire. We called last minute with a water damage emergency and were taken care of that same day. As a building renter and not owner, it was tough to get things rolling to take care of the water damage, but SERVPRO was accommodating and helpful in getting things started as fast as possible. The job was fast, efficient and professional. They cleaned up after themselves and as they went along. They worked very well with our insurance company and documented everything. If you are looking for good help, SERVPRO is the company to go with. I can not say enough good things about this company. They will be used again if we are ever in need."

SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW / Coronado takes great pride in providing excellent customer service.  Listed below is the latest 5 Star Google Review we received for a deep cleaning in San Diego County.  

Google Reviews

"We were in an emergency situation and needed new floors and a deep clean of our entire house in short time. They came in and packed everything out of our house and into PODS for the flooring. All the old flooring throughout the house was ripped up and hauled off and the new flooring went in without a hitch. They arranged painters to attend to two rooms that needed fresh paint after much hole repair and patching. Finally, everything was moved back into our house. Every item and surface space was cleaned and sanitized. Our air was sanitized and our house was spotlessly clean when we came home. Everything was done with great care and on time, beautifully. We highly recommend Mike, Scott and the whole team there!"

Signs of Mold After Storm

SERVPRO Truck in Rain If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – (619) 435-0365

SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado tends to receive calls regarding mold weeks or even months after a storm. Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. 

IICRC Standards

Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
  • If your home or business here San Diego has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
