From options taken to secure and relocate contents to cleaning soot residues from surfaces, the fire restoration process is intricate. Before job scoping and damage assessment, emergency services occur to address the most pressing concerns of a damaged residence, such as debris on the floor and circulating contaminants.
How Can Soot and Smoke Residues Get Removed from Livermore Homes?
Cleaning up after a fire disaster can be one of the most challenging aspects of restoration and recovery. With a population of more than 90,000 people in the city alone, our position in Alameda County sees multiple types of fire damages every year.

Is Deodorization Possible for Livermore?
One of the telling signs that a fire damage incident has recently occurred in your home or business is an overwhelming odor from combustion.

Step 1: Emergency Contact
We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
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.
