SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Teams are Standing By to assist after The Sand Fire
A few simple steps could help minimize secondary soot and smoke damages
Los Angeles firefighters have nearly contained 85% the Sand Fire in the Santa Clarita Valley, but not before flames consumed over 38,000 acres, damaging dozens of homes, commercial buildings and natural landscape. SERVPRO of Crescenta Valley / East Glendale is connected to a network of SERVPRO professionals called the Disaster Recovery Team to aid victims of smoke and soot damage within the affected areas. Though personal safety is always the primary concern in these situations, the first several days after the fire is controlled are critical to preventing secondary damages from smoke and soot. Once the local authorities say it is safe to return to your home and/or business, SERVPRO of Crescenta Valley / East Glendale would like to offer the following steps to help minimize additional harmful effects.
Even if your property didn’t suffer fire damage, there may be soot particles and residues left to clean up. If cleaned improperly, the odor and effects can linger long after the fire has been extinguished. From the structure itself to the contents inside, SERVPRO of Crescenta Valley / East Glendale uses the latest technology and training to leave your property smelling fresh and clean.
