San Diego, CA, May 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Considering the damage wildfires have inflicted on many properties, San Diego fire damage restoration specialists from Eco Pure Restoration remind residents to ensure preparedness for the potential damage. Wildfires, after all, tend to occur all year round, and have already ravaged thousands of acres in California, particularly in the southern region, over the last five years.
In the recent year alone, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) reports to have battled almost 5,000 fires throughout the state, a thousand more than the five year average. In May 2014, in San Diego County, 29,388 acres of land were burned after a series of wildfires erupted in multiple locations. The damage is estimated at around $60 million USD, including $29.8 million damage to private property.
In the Southern part of the state, fire season usually goes from late summer through fall, when strong Santa Ana winds sweep across the chaparrals, the scrub brush covered land dry enough for a single match or cigarette to set it ablaze, giving birth to full blown fires. These winds, along with the state’s arid weather and historic drought, are said to have caused the phenomenal May 2014 San Diego County Wildfires.
Fire season will start soon, so residents need to ensure preparedness for possible fire emergencies. Eco Pure Restoration reminds people to secure proper home owner’s or renter’s insurance coverage to reduce certain financial setbacks after a fire occurs. It is also recommended that each household has a fire-proof box and bug out bags handy to store valuables, precious items, and all other essentials should there be a need to evacuate the home.
The threat of fire does not end with the extinguishment of its actual flames. The ashes, heat distortions, soot, and charred odor render the house uninhabitable. EcoPure Restorations offers fire damage restoration for San Diego homes, including removal of scorch marks and odors as well as reconstruction services. They can deal with the entire restoration process, from demolition to reconstruction of the damaged portion of San Diego area homes.
