What to do after you've experienced a house fire

6/6/2022 (Permalink)

House in fire Fire damage can happen at any time in San Diego County.

We have seen with our years of experience how difficult it is for homeowners to process after fire damage to their home. If you experience an emergency fire damage in your Chula Vista home, we advise you to follow these 3 steps:

  1. Make sure everyone is safe

If your family is all together, take a moment to see if anyone has been injured that you didn't notice. If you have pets, it is recommended that you take them to a Veterinarian as their lungs can be affected by smoke. Once everyone's health is in order, be sure to take a moment to clearly assess the situation.

  1. Secure the house

If the fire has exposed multiple openings, the first priority for restoring your home is the deck. This is to prevent the property from deteriorating due to bad weather or unauthorized persons entering your home.

  1. Call SERVPRO of Chula Vista

We are a company preferred by many insurance companies. After talking with your insurance, call us because in these situations you will need professional help; because there may be asbestos in the debris, the structure may collapse, the air may be unsafe, and fires can still reignite under the debris.

Fire damage can happen at any time in San Diego County. Should you witness an experience like this, please remain calm and we'll be ready to respond using our innovative technology and experience. Call us at (619) 482-1131.

How do we calculate billing for a commercial project in Chula Vista?

5/30/2022 (Permalink)

Team Time and Materials (T&M) billing.

To provide transparency in our business projects to our clients, we implemented Time and Materials (T&M) billing.

This format of billing differs in the restoration industry in the level of detail in which labor, materials, contracted services, and other expenses are documented in order to represent the exact quantities that have been worked, consumed, or used

It also allows us the franchise to take into account economies of scale. Large quantities of labor, consumables and equipment used on many commercial projects drives the unit price of these resources and goods down; there providing cost advantages to both the franchise and the customer. 

If you experience an emergency in your Chula Vista business, we'll be ready to respond using our innovative technology and experience. Call SERVPRO of Chula Vista at (619) 482-1131.
