Where do you start after a fire in your Glendale, California property? One thing we recommend to all our customers – it is crucial to start any restoration work as soon as possible.

1. Phone Consultation

Our office is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That means you can contact us about fire damage restoration, water damage emergencies, mold concerns, and more. An expert will ask various questions to assess the situation and determine what resources they will need to help you.

2. In-Person Inspection

A certified team member will arrive on-site to the property and assess the damage of your residence. Yes, that even means if you need us after-hours! It is custom for them to sketch where the affected areas are on the property and create a rebuild plan. This also goes with taking many photos of the damage so that we can figure out where to start.

3. Initial Restoration Measures

If you have a property that has severe structural damaged, we will install tarps and boards to protect against weather, animals and intruders. This procedure also gives technicians more time to survey damaged areas before starting repairs.

4. Fire and Water Damage Removal  

The next step of the restoration process depends on if you are facing water or fire damage. If the home or office involves damaged structures and belongings from water, we will begin the extracting process. This will allow any excess water to be removed as soon as possible. If a fire was involved, our team will begin removing any severely burnt pieces of drywall and start removing smoke odors and soot left behind. Technicians detoxify your residence by removing these “hard to get out” substances from contaminated surfaces such as floors and ceilings.

5. Cleaning and Deodorizing 

SERVPRO® thoroughly cleans and deodorizes the residence and any damaged possessions before proceeding to more in-depth repair work. This is done with the upmost care, we understand how delicate things can be in the residence. Our team also goes above and beyond when it comes to our customers - If storage is needed for home furnishings for example, we can take care of that.

6. Cleaning and Rebuilding Services

The last stages in fire and water damage restoration are rebuilding and refurbishing. Minor repairs may include sanding and other surface-level improvements. Some restoration projects may require major reconstruction of entire rooms or sections of the residence. Please contact us for more information on rebuilding.
