This is something your insurance company simply won’t tolerate. At the end of the day, you need a fire damage restoration company that will look after your best interests when providing for, and justifying the myriad of services you may need your insurance company to cover
Zebra Restoration Fire and Smoke Damage Services
Disasters strike at the most inopportune times, and can have long-lasting consequences for everyone, and everything involved. Fire events can be some of the most traumatic experiences anyone can experience, and the last thing you need during these trying and stressful times is to manage the lengthy list of tasks required for the cleanup, cataloging, packing, and storage of your contents and structure, as well as dealing with the intricate process of debris removal, demolition if required, and rebuilding your home or business in the aftermath.

Understanding The Fire and Smoke Damage Process as it Pertains to Your Portola Property
When it comes to fire and smoke damage and the eventual restoration of your contents and property in Portola, there is a lot to consider including understanding that fire damage is destructive, but the damage smoke can levy on your property, even in places far from the area directly affected by the fire itself, can be equally, if not more, catastrophic.
As smoke settles to property surfaces, even in far off unseen places, the process of pitting, etching, burning, and corrosion starts to unfurl. Making matters worse is any humidity and moisture present in the environment. When the humidity and smoke particles react with one another, further, more permanent damage occurs.
When it comes to ash, the elements present in wood ash are quite inert and on their own in powder form don’t present any serious danger to material surfaces, however, when mixed with water, chemical changes create a toxic matter that can be extremely harmful to surfaces of all types. Chemical etching poses serious risk to material surfaces, and even simple morning dew and minimal condensation on ash is enough to start the chemical process down the road to damage.
Timing is of the essence when it comes to fire and smoke damage restoration as the damage continues to increase as the hours and days pass after the event.
When you partner with Zebra Restoration, you can rest easy knowing you have chosen one of the region’s most experienced and accredited fire and smoke damage restoration experts. We can help you make critical decisions when it comes to replace or restore evaluations, communicate with your loss adjuster, navigate the insurance claims process, and understand how decisions you make now as it pertains to the cleanup and recovery process may influence future rebuild choices, and more.
TO RESTORE OR REPLACE, THAT IS THE QUESTION
One of the biggest challenges in the aftermath of any fire or smoke damage event is the decision to either restore an item to it’s pre-loss condition if possible, or replace it if not. Zebra Restoration can help you understand what the limits of restoration are for each item, whether it’s useful life has been degraded, and whether just replacing the item is the best course of action based on an analysis of the replacement value and the cost to restore. Some items are irreplaceable, in those cases Zebra Restoration can advise on the best way to restore and salvage the item to bring it as close as possible to its pre-loss condition. We can also help you communicate these options and choices to your insurance company representative.
Smoke Odor Removal and Soot Damage Cleanup at Your Portola Home or Business
Often overlooked is the damage done by smoke and soot. Smoke doesn’t only discolor and impact surfaces in the form of soot but can also permeate in the form of smoke odor throughout even the most remote areas of your building structures, even those areas you simply can’t physically get to or see. Specialized equipment is necessary to deodorize your property to ensure that pesky smoke odor doesn’t persist. We use ozone and Hydroxyl machines to deodorize and remove the smoke particles and odors from your property. These machines also remove many other harmful viruses, bacteria and other particles from the environment that may be there from any humidity, water application during the event, and plain old lack of hygiene in the aftermath of vacancy.
Did you Know That Your Insurance Company Will Cover Smoke Odor and Soot Removal at Your Portola Property if You have Been Impacted by the Wildfire?
In most cases smoke, smoke odor, and soot removal from your property is a coverable event within the entitlements of your insurance policy. If you are curious if that odor you smell is from one of the two wildfires in the area, call us for a free consultation and we can come and test the surfaces and determine if in fact you have a problem originating from either the Dixie or River Wildfires so you can file a claim.
