Gilroy, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

While we might be best known for our annual Garlic Festival here in Gilroy, dry conditions through portions of the year have also given a large area of California the distinction of potential wildfire and structure fire zones. 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 

Fire Damage Repairs for Gilroy Homes

Having a team of general contractors available to dispatch with our restoration technicians has multiple benefits to a fire-damaged property. Many homes require some degree of repair and reconstruction after a fire loss, making it vital to have these building trade professionals there from the start to help with controlled demolition, structural repairs, temporary construction, and full-scale build back.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
