Few disasters are more dangerous than a fire as they can happen at any time and the damage they cause to a home or office can be devastating. The flames from a fire cause charring to everything it touches and even after the fire is out, the smoke, soot, and corrosive byproducts can continue to cause damage throughout the building. If the restoration process does not begin quickly enough after a fire has been extinguished, the tarnishing and etching from the soot could become irreversible. ServiceMaster Disaster Restoration and Recovery provides fire and smoke damage restoration services to help homes and businesses in Sunnyvale, CA that have been damaged in a fire. Our quick reaction will limit the spread of the damage and help prevent the existing damage from becoming permanent.

What to Do After Fire Damage

“A client/friend’s house caught fire the other day and every time this happens, it is always a very traumatic experience. The devastation on their faces and their be-wilderness is a very common reaction. The feeling of loss and being lost is understandable, so it is during these occasions where I have to be there for them.
The first thing I did was to calm them down and called Servicemaster. They do mostly restoration and clean up after a fire/flood/water damage etc. They are not general contractors. They only clean up, restore, and house your personal belongings at their storage facility. They will store it there until the house is back to live able condition. Best of all……….the insurance company will pay for it.
They can usually get to a place within 3 hours of the loss. They are very efficient.”
