Over 1000 structures were lost in the firestorm driven by 40-70 mph winds in the backcountry of Ventura and Santa Barbara, CA at the end of 2017. The Thomas Fire was classified as the largest wildfire (acreage) in the history of California. which threatened densely populated areas prompting the mandatory evacuation of more than 16,000 residents with many more voluntarily leaving for more than a couple of weeks. Even though the fire was not driven into the cities, the wind blew smoke and ash onto 100,000s of local residents and polluted skies northward past San Francisco, 600 miles away where I was visiting and saw first hand.


After a few days of the most aggressive advancement of the fire, 6″ of rain fell in a few hours in the mountains causing a catastrophic mudslide which pushed before it 10’ diameter boulders, autos, trees through houses in the Montecito suburb all the way to the beaches and closed the main artery 101 freeway for weeks. The final toll was 23 dead and billions of dollars of damage.


This mudslide in Montecito, CA was the result of extensive fires in the mountains above the city. When the rains came soon after, all of this came down onto the residential area.


Dozens of insurance claims to reclaim these types of items have been settled with the help of evaluations and inspections by FACL of smoked artwork, sculptures, family photos, model train sets, ceramics and collectibles… all of the cherished items that make up a family’s heritage and history.


Once such family has been in the railroad business for 4 generations and you can image that connection they feel with their family’s memorabilia! What a heartbreak to see the damage but what a wonderful moment to share with them how everything can be cleaned up to good and new.




We are prepared to handle the logistics and treatments of many items at once. We help compile inventories and reports for insurance reporting. We can re-hang the artwork and secure art objects for seismic safety.We are easy to communicate with and we can provide door to door service even over long distances.

We got our first call from a resident in the mudslide area today; 3 ft of mud… in the house! Unbelievably, they got out with the bare minimum… and their favorite painting… but there is a house of family memories to save as soon as they (and we) are let back in.

The mud on this painting smells like sewage. Its always a good precaution to protect your health when handling items from a mudslide in inhabited areas.




The mud etc can be removed safely from this artwork and is completely recoverable. Another day has passed and I’ve inspected about 25 works of art, all cleanable and can be returned to pre-disaster condition.
