Smoke Sponge

When there is smoke damage in your home you may be able to smell it but you won't always see it. Our smoke sponges help us to see if there is smoke damage. We wipe the sponge on a wall that has suspected damage and if the sponge turns a darker color then it tells us that there is in fact damage to the walls. As you see in the picture this wall will need to be cleaned. Cleaning soot off of the walls will help alleviate the strong smoke smell as well so they can breathe nice clean air again.

Stove Fire

This family’s Vista home suffered from a fire caused by a stove fire. It’s always devastating when a family experiences a house fire, but SERVPRO of N. Vista/ San Marcos worked hard to recover the structure and contents. We were able to remove the soot and even the smell of the smoke from the home, so that the family returned to a safe, clean space. Our goal is always to make your home “Like it never even happened.” 

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Smoke Damage Hiding On Your Walls

You may not always be able to see smoke damage but I guarantee you can smell it. We have special sponges to detect the amount of soot that is sitting on the walls.

Work Hard, Play Hard

One of our favorite things to do is to go paintballing with our whole company. It a great way to bring us closer and goof off. We love having these get togethers to let all of our people know how much we appreciate the work they do. We couldn't do what we do without each and every one of them. They all play a key aspect in our business operations. Thank you team!!

Before and After Photo (Fire & Water Damage)

This is a series of before and after photos of a residential fire in Carlsbad, CA.  This homeowner had a small fire ignite in their garage.  As you can see in the before picture, there was considerable smoke and soot damage to large portions of the garage walls and ceilings.  The smoke damage and odor also affected the entire remaining portion of the property connected to the garage. Unfortunately, when the firefighters responded and put out the fire they also caused additional water damage to the homeowner's property and walls in the garage.  Luckily SERVPRO of N.Vista/San Marcos was able to handle all of the fire, smoke, and water damage and make things appear ...."like it never happened" as shown in the after photo.

Before and After Photo (fire damage)

This is a photo of a fire damage job we had in Fallbrook. The fire started from their chimney. Here at SERVPRO of North Vista/ San Marcos we understand what a horrible experience it is to have a home fire or a home flood and of the damage that results from it. In southern California we all know of the damage fires can do. Our focus is on the homeowner or business owner going through such a tragic events. After a home fire theres soot and smoke damage that gets through the ventilation and contaminates the whole house. So along with removing the damaged contents we also do a deep clean through out the whole house. Scrubbing the walls and using special equipment to clean out the ventilation.
