Early Mitigation Helps Fire Damage Restoration for Mahopac Properties

Fire recovery and restoration is often a complicated and involved process utilizing multiple tools of our inventory and strategies of our experienced FSRT-Certified technicians. Before much of this restoration work can begin, however, there are often pressing concerns in the residence that must be addressed through a series of emergency services our rapid response team can complete. Using a combination of experienced mitigators and our general contractor license, we can prepare a property for fire restoration. 

Clearing Fire Debris

Among the first obstacles to restoring fire damage in Mahopac homes is the present debris and bulk materials throughout the structure. Combustion destroys many materials and surfaces, leaving behind harmful byproducts that negatively impact the property. Debris removal focuses on:

  • Ash
  • Soot
  • Smoke Solids
  • Charred Materials

Indoor Air Quality

Airborne contaminants are another concern for responding technicians. These migrating carcinogenic products or toxic solids can be hazardous for the house's occupants, and it can create a volatile environment for even our experienced restorers. Improving indoor air quality (IAQ) begins with the calculated placement of HEPA 500 air scrubbers. These units trap solids and microscopic contaminants to make a worksite safer. 

Controlled Demolition and Temporary Construction

Structural concerns are another focus of the emergency response team, and this is where our contractor license benefits the homeowner and their respective residences. A damaged structure should be removed when it cannot be repaired. The controlled demolition process and temporary construction solutions should be completed before other mitigation actions. 

Content Relocation

Whether it is removing carpeting from a fire damaged living room or cleaning surfaces of a kitchen, the loose contents of a workspace are an obstacle to the restoration process. It is often advisable to relocate these belongings to a safe place on the premises or transport them to our SERVPRO facility if focused cleaning and restoration is necessary. 

Fire damage must be managed quickly, so getting emergency services started fast helps Mahopac homes. Our SERVPRO of Putnam County team is ready to mobilize 24/7 when you call (845) 228-1090.
