Within very dry and high-temperature environments, natural disasters like Wildfires are becoming increasingly common, and pose a severe threat to surrounding areas and structures. One of the larger threats that can come from a wildfire is active embers, carried by the high winds, that almost always manage to reach surrounding areas, local homes, and structures. 

During the Bobcat fire that occurred earlier in the year, SERVPRO of Lancaster East received multiple calls for inspections and restoration services of impacted structures. This homeowner called for an inspection for fire damage caused by the near wildfire, as embers reached their home and managed to char their deck. 

SERVPRO of Lancaster East provides thorough inspections upon every visit. If your home has been impacted by fire damage, call SERVPRO of Lancaster East today for inspection and restoration. 661644-9505

As ventilation issues rise with the temperatures dropping, when was the last time you had SERVPRO of Lancaster East, CA check your ventilation system out for potential fire hazards?

Over time, with the build-up of dust, particles,  and other carcinogenic content, and with the addition of high temperatures inside this vent, the likelihood of a ventilation fire is dangerously high if not cleaned and mechanically maintained regularly. Since the heat of these systems runs throughout the house, a potential fire may not just stay in one room, but quickly spread within other areas. 

Here at SERVPRO of Lancaster East, we can inspect your home or business this autumn and coming winter, and provide professional cleaning for all ducts and vents.

After SERVPRO of Lancaster CA received a call about fire damage in a home, our team was sent out to provide a thorough inspection of the damage and its potential spread to other areas.

One of our trained technicians performed a walkthrough within the home and checked for any visual signs in rooms where the fire wasn't directly involved in. After the visual inspections were performed, our technician used state of the art SERVPRO supplies such as this chemical sponge, to detect soot clinging against the walls that would not have been uncovered without this chemical sponge. 

Without thorough inspections such as these performed by SERVPRO of Lancaster East, the harmful effects of inhaling soot particles would have plagued this home if not properly removed. We maximize the potential of all our equipment, to provide the best inspection and never missing a thing.
