Having a house fire can be upsetting and scary. Not only is there a lot to clean up, but you’re also likely displaced from your home for a few days, and you’re not sure who to call to help with cleanup and restoration. A fire is something most people are completely unprepared for, as the number one cause of house fires is faulty wiring. Since homeowners don’t readily see wires, no one knows they’re at risk until it’s too late. If you need help quickly and require emergency fire damage cleanup in San Diego, Hometown Restoration can dispatch a team immediately to you.

We have a multi-step process that we go to so that we’re able to clean and restore your home to its original condition, provided the structural damage isn’t too severe. When we dispatch our team to you, we first look at the damage and assess it. Oftentimes, because the fire has been extinguished with water by the fire department, there is water damage, so cleanup must be done in several different ways.

First, we tarp your roof and board your windows if needed, and then we begin the water removal process. We make sure there is no standing water and no excess moisture in the home to prevent mold growth, which can be harmful. After this, we dry and dehumidify. Next, we remove all smoke and soot, including that from your belongings as well. The next step involves cleaning and sanitizing your home to make sure that it’s ready for restoration. The restorative process depends largely on the intensity of the damage, but quite often, small fires only require minor repairs, such as new drywall or painting. For more serious repairs, we often contract with partners to ensure your home is restored to its pre-fire condition.
