san diego fire damageAfter a structural fire there is a lot of work to do to bring a home or business back to normal. Depending on the incident, you may be able to accomplish some of it on your own. If you suffered structural damage, chances are you will want to call in a fire remediation company such as Clean Earth Restorations in San Diego. Fire damage includes:

  • smoke damage
  • water or chemical damage (from extinguishing the fire)
  • fire and water damage to structures


It's important to begin cleaning up as soon as safely possible. The more quickly you begin the clean up, the more you can contain further residual smoke and water damage. (Water-soaked materials can be a source of mold growth in a matter of a few days.)

  • Open windows and vents to allow fresh air to circulate.
  • Remove wet and ruined materials.
  • Wipe soot from surfaces with a detergent solution.
  • Always wear protective gloves and clothing.

If you think you may have smoke or fire damage in your attic or ventilation system it is prudent to call in a professional service to assess the problem.

At Clean Earth Restorations we are one of only a few companies in San Diego that have the experience and technical knowledge to find and correct the secondary damage caused by fire and smoke.
