Wind Blown Fire Ignites Downtown Stockton Residences
Trust the Experts from SERVPRO for Fire Damage Restoration and Mitigation
The location is sometimes the link between merely observing a catastrophic event nearby and suffering from fire damage yourself. Flames jump from building to building and residential areas are not safe from a fire burning in a business district. SERVPRO is there to restore your residence even when fire damage is widespread.
You love your home, located near the downtown waterfront. When a blaze starts during the evening hours in an unattended business it spreads, bringing fire damage to your dwelling in Stockton. Although by the end of the night many buildings burned if you engage us as your restoration specialists you receive a fast and professional resolution of the harm done your home.
Several blocks were affected by a fire that began in a dumpster behind a business. Authorities evacuated the area for safety. You and your family left your home with just the clothing on your backs. Upon returning your townhouse and realizing this is no ordinary cleaning job you call SERVPRO on the advice of your insurance company.
When many residents and businesses in the community need restoration help for a widespread massive disaster, we reach out to other franchises in our nationwide network to create a Disaster Recovery Team. This effort increases the capacity of our local SERVPRO to handle your fire damage problems quickly.
We must react fast to fire damage because the residue is acidic and etches and discolors metal, glass, wood, and plastic. The damage grows worse depending upon the time it is left unabated. The relentless deterioration makes it critical we get to work as soon as possible. If any windows or doors were broken during the firefighting or areas of your home were burned through you need us to secure your interior from the elements.
SERVPRO technicians train in a wide range of cleaning techniques to eliminate residue. The type of surface affected and the characteristics of the soot determine the approach. Dry ash and light soot respond well to dusting and vacuuming. Heavier and tacky soot needs a spray and wipe method, moving to abrasive solutions and cleaning tools if it is tenaciously stuck to objects. Non-porous, soft surfaces benefit from immersion or ultrasonic treatments, the latter performed only by certified technicians.
Areas inside and outside of your townhome that are too damaged may need a demolition and replacement, but our focus is on restoration as much as is possible. We coordinate all repairs and restoration efforts with your insurer throughout the process, limiting expensive surprises you need to pay out of pocket.
The confusion and fear you feel when evacuated because of fire in your home and neighborhood are replaced with confidence when SERVPRO of Stockton arrives to restore the damage. One call to (209) 477-3090 gets the process going.
