Smoke & Fire Damage Restoration

A Call You Never Want to Make

Bill Howe offers a full range of restoration services, including both flood restoration and fire damage repair in San Diego. It is never good to receive calls from devastated homeowners who have suffered damage in a fire, but Bill Howe offers San Diego the best available fire and smoke damage restoration services for this type of damage. Our dedicated team of professionals have extensive experience in the field of smoke and fire damage restoration, and we handle jobs of all sizes from small kitchen fires to entire home reconstructions.

First Steps

Restoration methods following fire or smoke damage vary based on the specifics of the blaze. In the case of smoke damage, the primary issue becomes smoke and odor control. In these cases, we apply ozone to control the smoke odor, and continue to work until the smoke smell is completely gone. For homes that have been directly affected by a fire, the restoration process tends to be much more intricate. In homes where severe damage, such as loss of windows and walls, has occurred, we offer board-up services as one of the first steps. Our team will come into the home, assess the damage, and begin by boarding up any missing walls or windows to protect the security of a home after a fire. Damaged roofs can be covered with tarps. If sprinklers were deployed during the blaze, our flood restoration experts will be on site to commence structural drying.

Rebuilding and the Restoration Process

Once the structure is secure and dry, we can work with you on a plan for rebuilding the damage. Whether you simply need a wall replaced, or the entire home must be gutted and rebuilt, our team of experts can work with both you and your insurance company to come up with a plan that fits your needs. Our restoration methods following a fire include structural soda blasting, which is a way of removing soot and ash from the home. Once the salvageable structure is dry and clean, we can begin to rebuild any lost areas of the home. If you’ve been thinking about a kitchen remodel, now would probably be the time! Bill Howe’s team of builders, carpenters, and designers can help you turn a tragedy into the home of your dreams. Our dedicated professionals will be there for the entire process, from completing any necessary demolition, all the way to the finishing stages of renovation. Our fire damage restoration San Diego services can provide you with everything you need for a successful renovation.

Working With Insurance

Bill Howe’s smoke damage restoration San Diego services are IICRC certified, meaning we can work with both you and your homeowner’s insurance company. We adhere to all industry standards when conducting restoration on a damaged home. As we work, project managers and cleanup specialists will formulate the most efficient plan of action based on your home’s specific situation, and then communicate that plan to both you and your insurance. By keeping all parties informed and on the same page throughout the cleanup and rebuild, we help avoid delays and miscommunication between you and your insurance company.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
