Stockton we know what it takes for your business after a fire damage.

When wood and other organic materials burn up in one of the wildfires that Stockton has seen over the years, many of the area businesses and homes can battle soot and residues. Even without being directly in the path of the blaze, soot and smoke particles can travel considerable distances and significantly mar surfaces that do not get cleaned with the proper products and techniques. Our SERVPRO professionals have years of experience in fire recovery, even addressing aesthetic concerns that come with wildfire emergencies.

The appearance of your business can affect how your customers feel about it, including not addressing fire damage to your Stockton craft shop as quickly as you should. Because most people run their AC units and air circulation appliances throughout the year in this part of California, floating carcinogens can get sucked into the intake on the outdoor AC unit and dispersed throughout the store. Not only does this mean that you need restoration for residues on the outside brick veneer and siding of the shop, but now content management and cleaning for areas around interior vents.

Interior cleaning changes based on the materials affected and if your wares have become damaged as well. With many base items for crafts throughout the store, such as unpainted or unadorned wood, frames, and crafting items like twine, rope, paints, jars, and other wares. Depending on the severity of soot residues on these surfaces and items, cleaning these objects can be possible depending on the type of material. We have many cleaning approaches and products, including foam cleaning and peroxide active cleaning that can dissolve the bulk of residues on spackle ceilings.

To many structures, the exterior of the building can take the hardest hit after a wildfire. We have abrasive cleaning techniques like media and soda blasting that is safe to use on numerous construction materials. Even with the vulnerabilities of aging mortar in old buildings throughout the downtown area, soda blasting can clear the surface of soot residues without harming the concrete preventing the need to repoint the mortar joints.

Cleaning up your building after the widespread damages of a wildfire can feel overwhelming, but our SERVPRO of Stockton team can help. We have experienced fire restoration professionals ready to respond 24/7 by calling (209) 477-3090.
