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.
Opening your basement door and finding that you are looking at a few inches of water covering the floor can be shocking. At Tri Span, we are ready to come out at any moment and help you get this type of situation under control before your Los Angeles home sustains serious water damage.
Stop the Source of the Water Leak
A break in the main water line of your Orange County home can cause your entire basement to flood. It can be stressful knowing that anything stored down there will have some level of water damage. It’s critical to have this problem taken care of quickly to avoid a further problem of mold.
Pump Standing Water from the Basement
Our water damage specialists will start the water removal process right away by pumping any standing water out of the basement. The walls of your Los Angeles basement can become damaged by water if it’s allowed to stay for any length of time.
Remove Any Damaged Storage Items, Wood, or Wall Boards
Finished or semi-finished basements will often have walls added to close off separate areas. Flooding will damage portions of these materials. You may have items stored in cardboard boxes that will have to be removed. Wood stairs can become water damaged and might need to be removed as well.
Dehumidify and Dry the Space
Drying a basement area can take longer than most areas of the home. It’s a typically moist area that retains humidity in the air. We will add the power of dehumidifying to shorten the time it takes for the space to dry.
Repair Any Areas of Water Damage
Any building materials damaged by the water, broken plumbing, and other fixtures will have to be repaired or replaced. Window repair might be necessary if the water intrusion is the result of rainstorm activity through a window access.
Maintaining your home environment free of hazardous substances is critical to keeping you and your family safe and healthy. Here at Tri Span Environmental, we are certified and licensed in the abatement and restoration of your home from all types of harmful materials.
Removal of Lead Paint
The greater Los Angeles and surrounding areas have an ongoing problem with lead paint and potentially contaminated soil. It often goes undiscovered until major areas of older homes begin to be stripped of materials during an innocuous renovation. Removal of lead paint is dangerous due to the inability to avoid exposing it to the air. Lead poisoning can happen through inhalation of the lead dust particles that fill the air. Specialists will have the necessary equipment and protective clothing it takes to safely remove the lead from your home and adjoining soil.
Asbestos Testing and Abatement
Asbestos is a deadly fiber found in older building materials that gained popularity for fire-retardant and insulative qualities. It’s another substance that can harm humans when released into the air and inhaled. The bad thing about asbestos is the long period of time that can go between exposure and illness. If your San Bernardino or Riverside County home is tested to have the presence of asbestos, professional removal by experts at Tri Span will completely eliminate every trace.
Fire and Water Damage
The smallest of house fires in your Los Angeles County home can bring complete chaos to life. It’s hard to plan on what to do to bring normalcy back to each day. The home might be deemed uninhabitable until cleaning and repairs are done. You can call on us at Tri Span to begin to clean up right away and make the plans to begin reconstruction right away.
Complete Mold Removal
Science increasingly backs the health risks associated with mold growth within your living space. A mold problem always begins with tiny spores that enter the home through ventilation, windows, doors, and can attach to clothing when outside. With the right mix of air moisture and an undisturbed space in your Los Angeles area home, mold will attach and begin to reproduce at a fast pace. Complete removal is required to improve the air quality and protect your health.
You are not alone if your Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, or Orange County business handles hazardous materials, or creates hazardous waste as a part of your industrial processes.
