Complying With Inspections After Fire Damage Is Why Many Homeowners In Camarillo Choose SERVPRO

Fire changes the physical structure of anything it burns, including homes in Camarillo. These changes weaken or destroy structures, making them highly unsafe. SERVPRO can help make things normal again and restore your home's structure and safe condition. Our specialists understand the testing process that local inspectors use and keep these aspects in mind while working on your home's mitigation.

These and other reasons are why SERVPRO is first on the minds of many residents when they need to do something about fire damage in their Camarillo home. Although you and your family plan on returning home and living in the house, others must clear our work after inspecting to ensure that it is safe for occupants.

Wooden beams inside your walls may suffer from slow burning or charring. While a beam may have never caught on fire, it can become weak in areas. Other concerns about charred beams are that some professionals consider soot to be a possible carcinogen. Even if your family is never directly exposed to the charred areas, its presence and its weakened state can cause inspectors to refuse to pass a home's inspection. Blasting these areas to remove the charred portions, so fresh wood is exposed, which we then seal with an approved sealant, helps pass inspection.

If your furnace or HVAC system was running when the fire happened, soot and smoke could end up inside these units. Once your home's mitigation and restoration finishes, an inspector checks these areas closely. SERVPRO makes sure these areas are clean and residue-free.

Removal of the water firefighters used to extinguish the fire can cause related damage, as can the elevated amounts of water vapor in your home. We get this removed from your home, so microbial infestations remain under control, helping your home pass another part of an inspection.

We understand you just want your home back together, “Like it never even happened.” We are here to help you achieve this goal, and restore it back to a condition that can easily pass any inspection.

SERVPRO of Camarillo is always ready to answer your questions and provide guidance so you can more easily handle the restoration of your home. Inspections must occur for your family to legally reoccupy your home, and we know how to help you accomplish this. Call us at (805) 484-5009 at any hour of the day or night, any day of the year.
