After a fire, you must act quickly to begin your home's repair process. Delaying the restoration process can cause the deterioration of porous materials like alabaster and marble, leading to permanent discoloration. Within days, acid residues can cause vinyl flooring to require replacement or refinishing.

It takes a lot of planning and work to restore fire damage in Mahopac homes. SERVPRO's fire restoration technicians are highly-trained professionals who can complete the job effectively. The steps we can take to repair your home include:

  • Fire damage assessment
  • Cleaning
  • Deodorization
  • Reconstruction

Fire damage assessment

To effectively restore a fire-damaged property, it is vital to have a proper damage assessment. Our SERVPRO technicians can enter your property if firefighters have deemed it safe. We can then use inspection checklists to determine which areas have sustained damage. We can identify all types of fire and smoke damage in the structure and determine what we can fix and what items to discard. 


Our SERVPRO technicians can use wet-cleaning and dry-cleaning methods to remove smoke residues from affected areas. Dry cleaning involves physically removing the smoke residues before wet cleaning to prevent cross-contamination. We can clean walls, ceilings, and flooring using HEPA-filtered vacuums, dusting tools, and chemical sponges. Wet cleaning methods include using chemicals designed for the particular material compositions of the affected surfaces. 


Our SERVPRO team can use thermal foggers to deodorize your home. This equipment vaporizes petroleum-based or solvent-based deodorants to generate a fog or smoke of minute particles. The particles range from one-half microns to twenty-five microns, approximating the size of odor-causing molecules. The particles create a mist similar to a fire's smoke, enabling the deodorizer to interact more effectively with odor-causing residues. Since thermal fogs are pairing agents, they react chemically with smell-causing residues and eradicate smells instead of masking them. 


This step involves repairing everything the fire damaged. It could include fixing flooring, restoring walls, and rebuilding the roof.
