We work closely with local insurance providers to limit the delays in getting damage claim work started for the house.
Fire Debris Removal and Emergency Services for San Martin
Mitigation is a popular term to describe the initial steps taken when restorers first arrive, though emergency services often precede even these actions. Among the most beneficial work that our SERVPRO technicians and contractors can do when permitted to enter after extinguishment is fire debris removal. Clearing out the rubbish, ash, and charred remnants of contents and structural materials can have multiple advantages for the overall restoration process. The most direct impact that fire debris removal can have includes:
- Reducing smoke odors
- Reducing soot concentrations
- Showing structural weaknesses
Smoke Odor Removal from San Martin Homes
Removing harsh odors from the property can be a substantial obstacle for responding technicians, as this smell can move throughout the property beyond the initial damaged areas. We have multiple deodorization tools, though most often, the bulk of this process falls to ozone machines, hydroxyl generators, and thermal foggers.

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)
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)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
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
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.
