Fire damage is often accompanied by water damage. It’s because the fire department normally has to spray a fair amount of water on the structure to ensure the fire is out. At Tri Span Environmental, we know how devastating these events can be and offer quality services that encompass both problems.
Stay Out of the Home Until It Is Safe to Enter and Retrieve Items
Smoldering areas that have experienced fire have areas that are hot to the touch. You need to stay out of your Los Angeles or Riverside County home until you are told it’s safe to enter and retrieve things or explore the damage. You don’t want to add serious injury to the list of bad things happening. It may require hiring someone to stabilize the structure before you can enter, depending on the extent of the damage.
Protect Your Eyes, Lungs, and Skin
If you do enter the home, cover your mouth and nose with a mask, wear goggles to protect the eyes, and wear long sleeves to keep the soot off your skin. Soot is considered a carcinogen and can contribute to cancer.
Find a Remediation Company That Can Handle Both Problems Simultaneously
You don’t have to hire separate contractors to handle the damage of fire and water typical of many San Bernardino and Orange County home fires. Choose one like Tri Span Environmental that can handle both at the same time.
Remove Water and Fire Damaged Items and Materials
All of the water, water damaged and fire damaged items, or building materials will have to be removed from your Los Angeles home before the actual work of repairs can begin. The sooner this happens, the less the damage will be.
Repairs Are Done to Make It As If It Never Happened
True fire and water remediation services will provide repairs that bring your home back to pre-fire conditions. Everything will be back in place, and it will seem as if the fire never happened. It’s a better way to start over again without feeling as if you’ve lost everything.
