After the experience of a devastating fire in your home, one of the first questions that come to mind is if the home could ever look the same again. The walls, ceilings, and furniture are often burnt, while almost all surfaces are either smoldered or covered with black ash, and the unmistakable smell of smoke seems to be all you can smell.
In such dire circumstances, it is imperative to stay as calm as possible and remember that it is indeed possible to restore your home to its former glory by calling for the services of a San Diego fire damage contractor immediately. You need to do so within 24 hours of a fire disaster in order to prevent widespread secondary damage.
Essentially, the more time you lose, the higher the chances that more of your house will be lost. While this is considered a universal truth, extra special enforcement is necessary for the entire San Diego community because of prevalent conditions. A few weeks back, California Governor, Jerry Brown, declared the county, along with 14 others, disaster areas. This is due to a series of wildfires that have burned through thousands of acres in the state.
Severe drought and extreme weather conditions in California have turned a great part of the state into a potential tinderbox, ready to ignite at any moment; and while there may be numerous causes of fire from inside the home, living in any of these “disaster areas” means residents are now faced with the possibility of an external cause as well.
Fire damage restoration in San Diego is a crucial process that must be undertaken straightaway to salvage what may still be saved. Everyone knows this, but because battling the fire requires drowning the flames with water, you’re often forced to address both water and fire damage issues simultaneously. On one hand, you need to douse the fire; on the other, the water you use will cause a secondary problem after the flames have died down.
If that wasn’t enough, there is always the problem of smoke to contend with. This is why it is best to leave all forms of restoration to the pros, like EcoPure Restoration, not just because they have the right equipment, experience and expertise, but also because of their rapid response time.
The importance of fast response time is not limited to rescuing people and pets. The potential to restore your home also depends on taking quick action. The average time it would take the restoration experts to arrive and begin working is equally decisive. Professionals who can respond within 45 minutes or less are easy favorites for the teeming population of San Diego.
