SERVPRO Provides Qualified Restoration Technicians to Oceanside Residents with Property Fire Damage.

Are property fires common?
Many residents of Oceanside experience a property fire at some point during their ownership. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recorded 1,348,500 fires in the single year of 2009. Over a third of these fires were structural, which can require extensive repair and reconstruction. Our team of qualified technicians is here to help you overcome the damage implications of a fire quickly and hassle-free. Using our industry-leading training and cutting-edge equipment, we can often save the structure and build assembly elements without removing and replacing items. We can work closely with your insurance adjuster to produce an accurate estimate and provide an initial inspection of damages within just four hours from notification of loss.

What are the common causes of property fires?
Housefires are mainly caused by cigarettes, heating equipment malfunctions, electrical systems, and cooking. It can be easy to leave stove or fan heater unattended, but items can combust in a matter of minutes. Depending on your Oceanside home's decor, these flames can quickly catch onto structural elements that are primarily made from woods. Plywood or gypsum board, in particular, can ignite rapidly, leading to a property fire. SERVPRO recommends practicing fire safety at all times when in the home to ensure a reduction in property fires. However, when these do occur, you can contact us throughout the day and night to arrange a restoration service. Many properties that suffer from the fire have cosmetic damages rather than permanent ones, which means, provided the fire is contained, that the chances of a successful restoration are high.

Who is involved in fire damage restoration?
    •    A professional restoration technician that can put in place a cleaning and repair plan for your home by examining the site
    •    An insurance company that issued you a home policy for fire-related damages and foots the bill for fire restoration
    •    An insurance adjuster who works as a go-between for production technicians and insurance companies to produce an accurate estimate and guidance for restoration

Why are professional restoration technicians useful?
A fire damage restoration technician's role in your Oceanside home is to provide advice to insurance adjusters regarding claims and deals directly with you during the service.  We understand that house fires are traumatic, and, as a homeowner, you need the situation resolved as quickly as possible. Our restoration technicians are here to provide you with the assistance you need to get your home back to its preloss condition.  By doing so, you can return to your personal and professional lives. We believe a satisfactory restoration service requires empathetic, compassionate, and expert communication between the three parties involved with clearing and restoring a home.

Is fire damage restoration difficult?
Working as a professional production technician or crew chief can be challenging. Every property fire we face presents different challenges and requires other methods or equipment to overcome. We want to get your home back to a normal condition, which can mean working through evenings, on weekends, and through long shifts. In the immediate aftermath of a fire, a tremendous amount of work must be undertaken to mitigate potential losses in a small space of time. Removing smoke residues and bringing malodors under control can be a grueling task, but getting customers home back to preloss condition is fulfilling once the hard work is complete.

What does fire restoration aim to achieve?
    •    A report on the extent of losses in the home and efficient interactions with an insurance adjuster to produce an accurate estimate
    •    Quickly separating what can and cannot be restored at a property and minimizing losses through effective mitigation.
    •    Producing high quality of restoration to provide lasting satisfaction for homeowners undergoing the process of fire losses

How does a fire restoration technician approach fire damage?
Producing high quality of restoration requires a versatile approach to deal with the variables of fire losses. Variable factors in restoration can include the type of building, its assembly, and the severity of the fire losses. To tackle these issues, technicians need a solid grasp of how fires spread damages, the process of restoration, inspecting various losses, the deodorization of smoke odors. We use descriptive details from your initial notification of loss to pack our trucks with the required equipment from industrial foggers to cleaning agents and mechanical tools. We may also provide expert advice on moving out contents, restoring contents, and coordinating with subcontractors to return your home to preloss conditions.

What training and qualifications do fire restoration technicians need?
    •    Employee Certification Training Program (ECTP)which is based on our extensive fire restoration manual
    •    Industry certifications such as those issued by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications body
    •    Practical experience working under the guidance of senior crew chiefs
