HERE’S HOW YOU CAN MAKE SURE YOUR HOME IS SAFE:

STEP 1 Contact a licensed inspector. Smoke damage investigation, assessment, remediation, mitigation/abatement and consulting services should be performed by an individual recognized as a specialist through one of:

The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC)

Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB)

The American National Standards Institute

N O T E  We recommend using laboratories accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), or another industry recognized certifier to provide the City with a ‘Standard Operating Procedure’ upon request.

STEP 2 Following the inspection and assessment, you will get a mitigation report that determines the extent of cleanup, repair, and/or removal and replacement of interior and exterior wall finishes as well as HVAC and other systems.

STEP 3 If repairs and/or removal are required, you will likely need to get a building permit and undergo inspections to verify compliance according to the California Building Code. N O T E  Under State guidelines, an individual or consultant that conducts the investigation, assessment, or prepares the remediation plans for a site CANNOT conduct the remediation or abatement activity on the same site.
