Fire Damage Experts In San Jose Talk About Refinishing Charred Surfaces

If something ever burns inside your San Jose home, it is possible that the blaze torches things fast and engulfs a good portion of your contents and building materials. Once flames ignite, they can quickly spread throughout your home and use just about any substance as fuel causing you a significant amount of fire damage. In most cases, if the fire gets extinguished quickly, the loss will be less than if it has time to burn. The more oxygen the blaze receives, the hotter and faster it will burn. When several items inside your home get heated, it can become necessary to call in a professional fire damage restoration company such as SERVPRO.

Whenever things burn inside a building, items can get fully combusted and just partially charred. Any time our SERVPRO technicians work on a fire damage project in San Jose, we first figure out what we think we can save with cleaning and refinishing and what we know will have to be removed and replaced. To figure this out, our estimators arrive at your residence with a testing kit. The kit comes with all of the proper tools to test objects and their surfaces to see what work will need to be done to bring your house back to its original, preloss condition. Once we determine the overall scope of the job, we calculate an initial estimate detailing what we think needs to be done during restoration and give it to you and your homeowners' insurance provider.

After fire damage, during some situations, wooden surfaces of your contents and structural components can get charred on the surface. If the charring only exists on the surface of wooden items such as your wall studs, then it is possible that we can refinish them without having to replace them. If the charring on wooden materials only exists on the surface and does not exist a quarter inch into the wood, then we can often sand off the burnt substances and save the object. If you ever need help with your contents or building materials getting burnt or charred during a fire, call SERVPRO of Campbell at (408) 371-4001 any time of the day.
