How much does fire damage repair cost in San Diego?
The cost of a fire damage repair job can be impacted by several factors, including the size of the damaged room or structure, which materials and contents have been damaged, the extent of the smoke damage, and more. The good news is that homeowner’s insurance will often cover most of the damages.
The Fire Remediation Process
While every fire remediation job is a little different, our process follows these general steps:
The first step is to get the right people and equipment on site as soon as possible. When you call our 24 hour phone line, our dispatcher will work with you to determine the extent and type of fire damage. If you need offsite contents storage and restoration, smoke and soot removal, or water damage restoration from firefighting efforts, we’ll make sure the right specialists are there to handle it.
2. On-site damage assessment
Our specialists will examine the damaged area to determine the full extent of the damage. Soot damage can often spread to other rooms, while fire damage can extend into your home’s frame and foundation. Carefully documenting the damage will help us avoid any surprises later and provide you with an accurate price estimate and restoration timeline.
3. Isolating the damage
Fire damage can often damage walls, roofs, windows, electrical systems and other structural elements of your home, leaving damage that can physically harm you. If the fire was extinguished with water, there may also be pooling or standing water. During this step, we board up, tarp off, and otherwise isolate any areas that may still be hazardous.
4. Water Extraction
The longer that water remains stagnant, the more damage it can do. If any water was used to fight your fire, we will extract it, dry the space with industrial dehumidifiers, and test the area to ensure that no water has seeped into your structure.
5. Smoke and soot remediation
Depending on what was damaged in the fire, the soot and smoke left behind can be hazardous to your breathing. We use ozone, air scrubbers, and fogging equipment to clear smoke and soot particles out of the air, while also performing surface treatments on your ceiling, walls, and floor.
6. Sanitation & Contents Restoration
Our team can sanitize and restore your belongings either on-site or at our facilities. Typically, we will pack out your contents if the area requires significant reconstruction, or if the damage to your belongings themselves is significant.
7. Reconstruction and structural restoration
The last step in the fire remediation process is to rebuild the most damaged parts of your home. Since we are also a general contractor, our team is fully equipped to handle extensive reconstruction and remodeling.

The Most Common Causes of Fire Damage in the Home
While there are many ways that a fire can break out in your home, most house fires can be traced back to one of just a few causes:
Cooktops, ovens, toasters, microwaves, and even dishwashers are responsible for half of all residential fires. Be sure to never leave your kitchen unattended while cooking, and also remove any thick grease deposits.
Driers are notorious for causing fires for one big reason: dryer lint is extremely flammable. Be sure to clean out the vent at least once per years.
Water heaters and furnaces can also cause fires if poorly maintained, and space heaters are particularly dangerous. We always recommend regular maintenance with a plumbing or HVAC company, and to avoid using a space heater if at all possible.
Older extension cables in particular can easily cause shorts, especially if they become frayed. Be sure to only use newer extension cables when necessary, and don’t keep them plugged in any more than you have to.
It doesn’t take much for a cigarette to start a fire. A cigarette in an ashtray that isn’t fully extinguished, a lit cigarette that falls in a hard to reach crack, or a leaky lighter can all quickly cause a blaze. If you must smoke, be sure to only smoke outside. An as always, keep all smoking materials out of the hands of children.
Chimneys and fireplaces
There are many different ways that chimneys and fireplaces can cause a house fire. Rugs or other flammable material within range of the fireplace can easily catch a spark and ignite, but a blocked chimney or rupture between your chimney and the attic are much less obvious causes.
