Santa Barbara, CA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
Fire Damage in Santa Barbara, CA
A lack of rain and continued dry conditions have turned the hills behind Santa Barbara into a tinderbox. In recent years, we have experienced the smoke, ash, and flames from The Gap Fire, The Jesusita Fire, The Tea Fire, and The Thomas Fire. Historically, there have been many other wildfires in our town as nature exerts its powerful forces. We have to expect that in the future, wildfires will continue to be a problem for us here locally.
As a result of working for homeowners after these fires, SERVPRO of Santa Barbara has gained significant experience in the proper way to restore your home after a fire damage event. Whether it is ash in the insulation in your attic, a strong smell of smoke in your living room, or soot covering the roof of your house, the professional crews from SERVPRO want to use their experience to help you to get back in to your home as quickly as possible.

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
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)
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
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.
