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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

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.
