Kent, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

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)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

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.
