Fire & Smoke Damage in Ventura, Santa Barbara or Los Angeles? We Can Help!

Fires can be devastating to any home or business. Once the fire is extinguished, and the fire trucks leave, property cleanup and restoration must be initiated within 24 to 48 hours. It’s important to remember that fire damage goes beyond the blaze itself. The process of extinguishing the fire can be just as destructive as the actual flames. Not only must you deal with a scorched interior, exterior, and contents, but there will be considerable water, soot, and smoke damage.

When we come to your property for fire damage repairs, we will safeguard and stabilize the area to control conditions, prevent further damage, and ensure safety. Whatever salvageable contents and building materials there are, will be salvaged. Our goal is to restore the structure back to full usability as quickly as possible.

Need Water Damage Repair in Los Angeles or Ventura? We’re on the Way!

Serious water damage typically occurs with no warning at all. It can even happen in the midst of a drought. Anything from a pipe burst to flooding from sudden heavy rains can significantly damage a property. The trickiest thing about water damage is there’s always more than meets the eye. Water can deeply penetrate structural cracks, crevices, or cavities where it is unseen and becomes more problematic as time goes on.

If water is left to sit, a noticeable musty odor may be the first thing noticed. Costly structural damage or mold and mildew growth can also occur. These are all avoidable damages if water damage mitigation and structural drying efforts begin immediately. Our Southern California water damage restoration processes include:

  • Damage assessment/surveying
  • Water removal
  • Structural drying
  • Full reconstruction
  • Board-ups and roof tarps
  • Drywall removal/repair/installation
  • Hardwood and tile removal/installation
  • Carpet removal/installation
  • Repainting
  • Odor removal/deodorization
