Fire Damage Emergency Board Up After Home and Commercial Fire Damage SERVPRO - Industry Leader in Home and Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

Local Shasta County home and business owners

...who experience property fire damage will benefit by calling a professional restoration company like SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties who specializes in the full scope of fire clean up and emergency board up. The process includes utilizing specialized tools and technology to eliminate excess debris and particles from the fire, smoke and soot damage.  The point of quick response and mitigation is simply to preserve the value of the property, protect an owner’s investment and make heroes of insurance agents by reducing claim expenses.  Boarding up windows, doors and property access points provides a level of security, asset protection, prevention against theft and vandalism along with protecting against ongoing severe weather.

Residential and commercial property fire damage is not just the immediate fire and water used to extinguish. Ongoing aftereffects like smoke, protein fire residue, soot and the resulting odor soak into walls, flooring, the internal space of electronic equipment and any porous wood or cloth material.  The point of fast board up and internal cleaning of debris and particles is to quickly stop the process of destruction and save whatever is left to prevent further ruin. When a fire burns through a home or business the contents contain a plethora of chemical, industrial and manufacturing compounds – electronic and business equipment, plastics, heavy metals in circuit boards, flat screen TV’s and foam, synthetic materials in carpet, couches and flooring.  The smoke, soot and thus odor is in fact extremely toxic from the long chain hydrocarbons sticking to the internal surfaces. When the firemen use water to extinguish the flames the burned out toxic residue mixes with water and forms an acidic compound slowly etching and eating away at surfaces.  

Fast emergency pack out and board up by your local disaster restoration provider is paramount.  That is exactly why we have a team of trained technicians in our Redding, CA facility who wipe down and clean individual contents such as plates, books, family heirlooms, pictures, business equipment and many more.  Quickly removing the soot, acidic reaction and thus odor whether through state of the art ultrasonic chemical bath or a complete individual cleaning of items, sanitizing and restoring contents to a like new condition.  Particularly from homes, many items we restore are sentimental and irreplaceable.  Emergency board up is much more than sealing and securing a structure.   Board ups become a first step of preservation not only of property but more importantly memories, investments, and time.  The “Why” behind what we at SERVPRO do really comes from compassion and holding “your best interest” to the highest level.

Phone us at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year.  We are your resource to call when the unexpected occurs.
