San Jose, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
From the hundreds of thousands of homes and apartments throughout San Jose, not to mention large venues like the SAP Center where our Sharks play, fire disasters can strike at any time. Because each of these situations is unique to the structure affected, our fire restoration technicians must be prepared for a wide range of damaging effects and potential hazards within a building. As a large loss recovery team, we have the capacities to handle substantial disasters that impact even the greatest commercial properties in the city limits.
Fire Mitigation Solutions for San Jose
Protecting the property and its contents are among the first steps that our restoration professionals take after a fire. Mitigation and emergency services play a significant role in preventing the spread of effects common after extinguishment, such as circulating soot and smoke. Mitigation involves several specific tasks that encompass the talents of both our restoration technicians and our building trade professionals on the roster. Some of these required actions include:
- Controlled demolition
- Air filtration
- Water extraction
- Fire debris removal
Smoke Odor Removal in San Jose Homes
Smoke and burning smells become a severe hindrance to a comfortable life in your home after a fire loss. Much of the restoration process in the final stages is devoted to removing harsh odors left behind by combustion. There are multiple tools for removing these noxious scents, but it relies most on foggers and hydroxyl generators.

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
