How Threatening is a Fire to Kent Homes?
Threats like fire losses can spread quickly through Kent homes and businesses, requiring professional fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO of Putnam County team to resolve. Among the first steps for any emergency is to determine the extent of the damage and create a plan designed to protect and preserve the property as much as possible. This job scoping is vital for medical facilities like the nearby Carmel VA Clinic or schools in the Carmel Central School District.
What Are Emergency Services?
Emergency services refer to our technicians and in-house contractors' actions as soon as we arrive at a damaged address. These steps happen before mitigation, making them among the most vital to reducing the spread and severity of fire loss effects. This might be as simple as fire debris removal and vacuuming to temporary construction repairs for the roof. With municipal properties that could become a victim of fire or even arson, a prompt restoration response for the Kent Town Hall on Sybil's Crossing can get the property up and running again quickly.
Fire Damage Cleanup
There are several cleaning and restoration stages after fire extinguishment, but the bulk of these efforts serve to remove soot and smoke residues from the structure and its contents. The approach for these cleaning efforts change with the severity and affected material, meaning that the buildings of Wonder Lake State Park might need different restoration than the Canopus Beach Complex.

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
