Gilroy, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Having professional fire restoration professionals available 24/7 to help in these situations can make a difference in the impact these disasters have on area properties. Getting mitigation started immediately reduces the spread and severity of damaging effects like soot particles and smoke odors.
Fire Mitigation Steps for Gilroy
The first steps taken after a fire gets extinguished can go a long way to reducing the destructive impact on your property. Post-fire effects can be devastating for a structure, especially when soot particles and carcinogens can spread unabated through the house. Several initial actions can help manage these conditions and ultimately reduce the amount of time spent with restoration and cleanup of the home. Some of the most common mitigative techniques started upon arrival include:
- Air filtration
- Water extraction
- Controlled demolition
- Content relocation

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
