If you’ve recently gone through an emergency, such as a house fire, it can be a completely confusing and traumatic situation, Even for the most prepared person, a fire is something no one is truly prepared for, and many factors can cause house fires. The most common cause of house fires is faulty wiring and faulty outlets, which most homeowners wouldn’t know is wrong until a fire occurs. If you have recently experienced an emergency and you need fire and smoke restoration in San Diego, Hometown Restoration is here to help.

Other common causes of house fires can result from clothes dryers, dirty chimneys or fireplaces, kitchen fires, and alternative heating (such as a space heater tipping over). No matter what caused your fire, you’re likely now faced with an emergency and aren’t sure what to do. We have a multi-step process we go through to help restore your home to its original condition.

Our first step is to dispatch our team to your home for an emergency assessment so we can inspect the damage. With fire, there is always smoke and soot damage, but it is likely water damage from the fire being extinguished, so fire damage typically has to be double-treated as flood damage. Next, we board up windows as use an emergency tarp if needed, depending on the fire’s extent. If there is water or flood damage present from extinguishing the fire, we then go through the water removal process of extracting water from your home to prevent mold. Then, we remove all smoke and soot from all surfaces from your home, including all of your belongings. The last step of cleanup is a cleaning and sanitization process.

Next, the restoration process begins, where we can restore drywall, floors, and paint if needed. If you need structural repairs, we can contract with one of our partners to ensure your home is as good as new when finished.
