Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Services in San Diego

Fires not only cause significant property and structural damage, they can also threaten lives – particularly if you are home or at work when the fire starts.

And regardless of whether the fire was contained, large, or small, damage caused by smoke can sometimes cause even more damage than flames. These damages are accompanied by financial concerns, especially in regard to replacing lost items and property restoration.

  • Abbotts Fire & Flood offers fire remediation services to help families after their home has been damaged by fire or smoke.
  • We have restored thousands of damaged properties successfully, bringing them back to their former glory.
  • In addition to refinishing, we also offer cleaning and deodorizing services.

The Smallest Fires Pose the Largest Risk

Electricity short circuit

Many common household items are potential fire hazards, including improperly disposed of matches, electrical outlet faults, cigarette butts, and more. While some fires manage to stay contained to a single room, structural damage and other factors leave room for risks of additional fires.

The best way to guarantee a complete home recovery is to seek the aid of a professional fire restoration company that will completely investigate the area. Some dangers aren’t brought to the homeowner’s attention until fire restoration services survey the area and render repairs.

Dangers Posed by Smoke Damage

Many homeowners make the mistake of believing that smoke only leaves a light stain and odor in its wake, unlike fire hazards which are more apparent. Attempting to clean the smoke stains and surrounding surfaces tends to worsen the damage due to a reaction with our skin’s natural oils. These oils and salts can cause even more permanent damage, which is why it’s essential to follow proper cleanup protocol.

For individuals who have become victims to a fire, smoke damage should be a high priority. Beyond property damage, smoke leaves behind toxic residues that pose a health risk upon inhalation.

Smoke tends to cause more property damage over time due to its acidity. It can:

  • Damage electrical components
  • Eat away at furniture finishes
  • Damage paint

All of which can lead to the possibility of another fire in the future. Plus, because smoke lingers in the air, it leaves unhealthy conditions within the environment long after the flames have been put out.

Professional restoration services can effectively restore property with significant smoke damage and clean areas exposed to smoke. Even in the case where there aren’t obvious signs of smoke damage, it’s important to have the home inspected and properly cleaned.

Water Damage Prevention Once the Fire’s Extinguished

Homeowners and business owners are most likely to consider water damage last, if at all, in the case of a fire. However, because the fire department will almost always use a large amount of water to extinguish a structure fire, your property will be at risk for mold, waterlogging, and dry rot long after the fire threat is gone.

At Abbotts Fire & Flood of San Diego, we’re aware of these post-fire threats and provide efficient services in order to prevent subsequent damage.

Although fires are usually unexpected, the faster you respond to fire damage, the quicker you prevent more issues down the line–smoke residue is removable, and its damage is reversible if you seek help from one of our technicians.

On-Call Fire Damage Technicians 24/7

Once we receive a call regarding fire damage, Abbotts of San Diego quickly begins to minimize and eliminate your property’s smoke damage. First, we use tarps to protect and enclose your home from the elements, further damage, and theft.

Once that’s complete, we use containment techniques (such as dehumidifiers, ventilation, and other equipment) to isolate areas affected by smoke and fire damage. This helps to dry the interior and prevent the spread of contaminants and mold growth.

Once the damage is contained, we can help you salvage and restore your personal property; we even offer storage solutions until your home is back to normal.

We’ll help you move forward by coordinating with your insurance adjuster to get plan approvals. Once a plan is in place, we’ll strive to restore your property to a pre-loss state and help you get back to normal as quickly as possible.

San Diego Fire Damage Repair Steps

We don’t keep our industry expertise a secret – it’s important for all of us to educate ourselves on what needs to be done before an unexpected disaster strikes.

Step 1

Property Release

When any fire is reported, the local fire department is dispatched.Before any shoring up and restoration can begin, the fire department must release the property.

This means that the building or area is secure and safe, and any investigations have been completed.

Step 2

Salvage and Restoration

Once the property is released, the difficult and emotional process begins of determining what possessions can be saved and what can’t.

Abbotts will work with you and your insurance company through this process. We will then remove the items that are to be cleaned and restored in our dedicated facility, and store them until they can be returned.

Step 3


Once the salvageable possessions have been identified, removed and the cleanup is finished, the reconstruction process really begins.

Abbotts will be working closely with you and your insurance adjuster to determine the extent of the damage and how we can effectively and efficiently get your property back to normal.
