Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration in Bonita

Fire and smoke damage restoration services can be challenging, even without overwhelming devastation.  A home or office contains hundreds if not thousands of materials that react differently to burning, charring, scorching, and heat-warping.  Smoke contains numerous toxic, corrosive, and odorous compounds that affect porous materials, metals, and even glass.  Plus smoke’s characteristics and its proper removal vary with the type of fire

That’s why our smoke and fire damage restoration services are performed by certified technicians backed with advanced equipment.  That includes dry-ice and soda blasting equipment to quickly and efficiently remove char, soot, and smoke as well as ozone generators to neutralize all odors permanently.

After a thorough inspection we’ll secure the building, remove debris, perform emergency cleaning to minimize smoke damage, dry the structure to minimize mold problems, provide permanent odor control, and make repairs.  As needed we can reconstruct heavily damaged areas.

Sewage and Flood Damage Removal

It’s common to call anything involving a lot of water — such as a burst water heater — a flood.  But your insurance company makes a distinction between leaks and plumbing (or appliance) failures that are covered under a homeowners’ policy versus an inundation  from outside your property that requires a special flood damage policy to be covered.

For us any distinction is more a matter of contamination.  Water direct from plumbing is clean, but any that’s been in contact with the ground or standing for more than a day is a bio-hazard.  So our flood damage removal teams focus on extensive and absolutely thorough cleaning and disinfection along with pump-out, drying, and repairs.  For sewage backups we bring in our certified applied anti-microbial technicians to assure proper containment and isolation against airborne contagion spread, full disinfection, sterilization or removal of contaminated materials, and proper transportation of hazardous materials through Bonita streets.

Bonita Water Damage Restoration

Even small amounts of water quickly penetrate through tiny cracks and soaks into the structure.  Once there it can remain trapped for weeks, even during Bonita summers.  All that time it’s causing mold growth, warping wood, delaminating paneling, and destroying drywall starting in as little as a day.  After a while even concrete is weakened.  Immediate water damage restoration keeps that to an absolute minimum by thoroughly drying the building in just a few days.

So if you have more than a small area of wet carpet or drywall you need our professional services.  We start with surface water extraction using specialized equipment and follow that with commercial-grade dehumidifiers and TES (directed electric heaters) for fast and complete structural drying.

Mold Remediation

Mold doesn’t use light to grow — it feeds on nutrients dissolved in any lingering moisture.  So you might not see any fuzzy blotches yet still need mold remediation.  You may notice musty odors, allergies, or flu-like symptoms.  In Southern California insurance rarely covers mold damage so the longer you delay the more you’re likely to pay for repairs.  And the longer you and your family or employees may be exposed to health risks.

If you have concerns we can perform an inspection that includes using electronic instruments to find any trapped moisture.  If necessary we can proceed to isolate the affected area with plastic sheeting and negative-air-pressure exhaust to contain contamination while we complete spore and mold removal.  Our mold remediation services may also include air-duct and carpet cleaning, anti-fungal treatments, and odor removal.

Contents and Structure

Our certified packout technicians are experts in moving furniture and other belongings from damp or contaminated environments to our facility near Bonita.  There they will provide any necessary treatments prior to secure storage.  You and your insurance carrier will have a detailed inventory from the start until we return everything to your home or business.

In addition to our cleaning and restoration technicians we employed skilled workers in various building trades (such as carpenters, roofers, plumbers, and electricians) for complete repairs.  If there’s extensive damage they can provide demolition and full reconstruction services, including finished kitchens and baths.

Bonita Flooding

As elsewhere, most fire and water damage removal needs in Bonita are a result of problems within the building itself.  But Bonita is known for frequent flooding as a result of El Niño heavy rains.  Over the years 1950 through 2010 there were 142 significant floods (along with 103 wildfires) within a 50-mile radius (http://www.usa.com/bonita-ca-natural-disasters-extremes.htm).  So once your life is back to normal it’s time to make sure you’re prepared.
