Why SERVPRO We Are The Best At Restoring Your Fire Damaged Home In Camarillo For a better restoration of your property after a fire incident, call SERVPRO of Camarillo to help.

Why Highly Trained SERVPRO Technicians Fix Fire Damage In Camarillo Better

A fire can be confined to a small area close to the source or spread throughout your home. However, all the incidents leave a wide range of damages that require different approaches to clear. Damages occur through residue deposit, heat searing, and the actual burning by flames. Each of these aspects varies, which can complicate the restoration process. We help restore affected homes faster because our crew members are highly trained, and IICRC certified.

Scoping the scene of fire damage in Camarillo helps establish what type of damage is most prevalent, which helps create a proper response plan. Small incidents such as those involving stove or grease fires in the kitchen mostly leave residues as the dominant type of damage. Such residues spread through smoke movements so they might not be confined in one location only. Our SERVPRO technicians do simple tests such as wiping with a sponge starting close to the fire source to establish how far the deposits spread determining the level of cleaning necessary.

The different aspects of fire like heat, moisture, oxygen, and gases interact, creating a variety of challenges for the cleaning effort. Heat can open up pores on surfaces allowing residues to penetrate deeper. Presence of moisture during the fire creates wet smoke, which stains materials deeply. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on their training in Fire and Smoke Restoration techniques to tackle these challenges. We use different approaches like mechanical agitation, chemical action through the application of professional cleaning agents, and temperature control to ease cleaning. We also capitalize because cleaning agents work better when allowed enough dwell time.

Apart from leaving visible residues, fires also leave invisible materials. For example, there is a tendency for a bad odor to develop after a fire. Such odor may persist even after cleaning all visible residues from the affected areas. Deodorization can help remove odor particles embedded deep into different materials. Our SERVPRO crews use various deodorization techniques, including fogging to deliver sanitizers, digesters, or neutralizers to the affected area. We also use specialized equipment such as hydroxyl generators to deal with the odor.

For Camarillo Property Owners, Why SERVPRO Can Safely Provide Asbestos Abatement

5/20/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO For Camarillo Property Owners, Why SERVPRO Can Safely Provide Asbestos Abatement Let SERVPRO Safely Remove Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) from Your Camarillo Home

Stay Between the Regulatory Lines with Asbestos Abatement and Fire Damage Cleanup in Camarillo

One issue that we commonly must deal with when restoring older damaged buildings or assisting with a demolition project is asbestos abatement. Asbestos was used for decades as a fire-resistant building material before studies showed that it could cause severe health effects to those who inhabit buildings containing it. Removing asbestos-containing material (ACM) from a building can be a complicated task, as many different regulations apply to the use and appropriate disposal of asbestos materials. The State of California has very rigid laws and regulations concerning the demolition and removal of asbestos based materials.
 
One of the most important reasons to hire a specialist company like SERVPRO to handle asbestos abatement in Camarillo and other local communities is due to the many different local and national regulations regarding the removal and handling of asbestos. The removal of this carcinogenic material is compounded by the cleanup and restoration already required after the house fire. Demolition must be carried out while donning personal protective equipment (PPE), and the best practices of encapsulation and removal always adhered to during the cleanup. For any abatement project we handle, we must pay close attention to multiple metrics of employee safety, air quality, disposal techniques, and consistent removal patterns. Violations in any of these disciplines can lead to steep fines and penalties from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and local regulatory bodies. Some SERVPRO technicians receive certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification in the proper methods to remove asbestos while following all applicable government policies.

Without professional assistance in removing asbestos from your property, you may run several financial risks. Work done by uncertified or under-certified individuals may immediately alert inspection agents to an improperly run abatement project, potentially leading to thousands of dollars in fines. Furthermore, the health risks associated with asbestos exposure mean that anyone in and around the property after the completion of an improper abatement job could sue for damages. Hiring SERVPRO helps to ensure that all safety and legal concerns are addressed and all documentation is done professionally. Typically, upon completion of a fire-damaging event where asbestos was a factor, means the calling in of a Certified Industrial Hygienist for final verification of a safe and clean environment.

You can rely on the training and advanced equipment offered by our franchise to restore your property to a safe status, ridding the asbestos, fire-damaged materials, odor control, and even spraying an antimicrobial to thwart the developement of mold.

SERVPRO of Camarillo is fully certified to help you remove and dispose of asbestos products on an old property. For help in understanding if and why you might need an abatement project, or to request our services, call us at (805) 484-5009.

Often underestimated, fires can start small, but they have the potential for growth which is enormous in a short time. Flames from the fire consume all that they touch, but few people think about how much damage that the smoke can cause as well. Smoke goes to cool areas and rises, traveling through plumbing, vents, or any other openings so it can ascend to higher areas and do damage there.

The smoke may also go towards any windows and outside walls, closed closets and drawers, and unheated rooms. As the hot smoke migrates, it deposits residues around the colder surfaces more heavily. If your walls are well insulated, windows give substantial temperature differences, and air currents could concentrate in that area. SERVPRO techs know to look for smoke and soot residues throughout your building and away from where the fire burned so we can ensure that everything left behind from the fire is cleaned.

Therefore, if the fire started back in the kitchen, you could have smoke damage throughout your building, creating the need for shutting your doors temporarily so we can properly clean all the fire, smoke and soot damage.

Since closing your doors even for a short time is not ideal, SERVPRO of Camarillo strives to finish the job promptly after fire damage in your business in Camarillo or the surrounding areas.

SERVPRO Has Specific Methods for Fighting Damage from Fire, Smoke in Camarillo Properties

Fire damage can occur in many ways in a residential home. Cooking accidents, overloaded electrical panels, and plain old human error. When a fire occurs, there are often other issues to deal with such as odor, residues, water, the possibility of mold if not dried properly, not to mention replacement of fire loss contents.

When SERVPRO is called to mitigate damage from a Camarillo home fire, smoke is one of the things they address first. Depending on how hot the fire burned and the types of items that were consumed by the fire depends on the cleaning methods our technicians choose.

Plastics and synthetic materials tend to leave wet, grease-like films on surfaces that smears easily and can be challenging to clean. Organic materials such as hardwood beams tend to leave lighter, easier to clean residue. However, this is not positive because generally, these types of fires cause more significant structural damage. Our technicians are certified in the science of restoration and know that specific types of smoke residue requires specialized cleaning methods to remove the film and accompanying odors thoroughly. A single room can have different kinds of residues for our technicians to address depending on the types of items burned.

Mitigation for damage begins during the initial phone call with the homeowner, the SERVPRO technician takes the information and usually advises the homeowner actions they can take or should not take before our technicians arrive on site. The goal is to keep the homeowner safe, traffic in the area to a bare minimum and avoid spreading smoke and soot odors to unaffected areas.

The odor left behind by a fire can penetrate anywhere the smoke went. Our professional cleaning formulas are often enough to remove stubborn odors. In the cases where it is not, we have odor-neutralization methods such as thermal fogging which penetrates porous objects just as smoke does, except it is done with a heated solvent that eliminates odors. Machines such as Hydroxyl generators that work on the same principle as using UV rays from the Sun to power out odors using naturally occurring molecules called Hydroxyls that bond with and neutralize odor-causing molecules.

The key to saving as much as possible when damage from a fire happens in your home is to bring in professional help as quickly as possible. The faster the remediation begins, the more that can often be restored through cleaning.

Fire Damage Restoration In Your Camarillo Retail Store

One of the most devastating things to happen to your retail store in Camarillo is a fire. Without the proper fire protection systems in place, your business can suffer downtime and a significant loss. There are also several hazards and risks that are present in your retail store. Being aware of them can help you to prevent a fire.

When a fire has already occurred in your building, you need the help of professional fire damage remediation specialists in Camarillo. SERVPRO staff is trained to handle all fire damage situations, and we also understand that as a business, you can’t afford to lose much business. If the fire requires you to shut your doors for a time, we make sure to work quickly but efficiently so you can reopen as fast as possible.

Electrical equipment can pose some of the most significant hazards for your store. These include sound systems, lighting, refrigeration, cash registers, and other aspects of your business which require electrical wiring. Any malfunctions with these areas can spark a fire if not properly maintained.

Once SERVPRO techs have restored the fire damage in your building, we need to clean surfaces which were affected. Different surface techniques stop the material we are cleaning from being saturated with a cleaning product. Surface techniques avoid over wetting materials and letting the surface dry fast by limiting how much cleaning product we use.

Using the spray and wipe technique, we lightly spray or mist the cleaning product onto the surface being cleaned, then wipe it with a dry cleaning towel. The technique can be used on hard-surface furniture and contents. Foam cleaning is used for cleaning materials which might be damaged by excessive moisture from cleaning products. By using foam, we can use less moisture on the surface than with cleaning with a liquid cleaning product.

It is essential that you take some precautions and have some defense against fires in your structure. Fire sprinklers are your first good defense from fires. The heads of the sprinklers disperse water over the flames and keep them from spreading until your local fire department can get there. Fire alarms are essential for alerting your customers; there is an emergency. Keep your system maintained so you can count on being able to get customers and staff to safety if a fire begins.

You should also have several fire extinguishers around your store, making sure to place one or two near any flammable products or displays of lit candles. ABC extinguishers are the most versatile ones since they can put fires out from electrical equipment, flammable liquids, and burning plastic or paper.

SERVPRO of Camarillo can restore your business building in Camarillo or the surrounding areas after a fire of any size. Call us at (805) 484-5009 immediately after the fire is out so we can help your business look “Like it never even happened.”
