Mahopac, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fire Damage Inspection and Documentation for Mahopac Homes

Once a fire tears through Mahopac homes or businesses, there are many steps involved to get an insurance company approving a damage claim. Often, this requires an inspection and evaluation of the property by trusted, competent professionals like our project manager for our SERVPRO of Putnam County team. With so many homes around Lake Mahopac, exterior damage assessments for soot and smoke damage are also necessary when a neighboring property experiences these losses.

Fire Mitigation Strategies to Help Mahopac Homes

As a frequent service call that our team receives, preparedness for fire losses is more than just knowing how to restore the property. Mitigation for these emergencies is critical to reducing further losses and managing the current situation. Preventing the spread and severity of post-extinguishment fire damage can ensure that structures like the South Putnam Animal Hospital and the shops and restaurants along Route 6 can continue to serve their customers and clients whenever possible. Professional fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO team focus on several areas when mitigating losses, including:

  • Air quality
  • Present debris
  • Soot/smoke particles
  • Surface residues 

Prompt Fire Damage Repairs After Cleaning

Restoration and mitigation steps happen as quickly as possible to protect a home as much as we can after a loss. Repairs are often necessary to finalize these efforts. This reconstruction is vital for areas like the Mahopac Village Shopping Centre and the Mahopac Library, as these serve hundreds of people every week.

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)

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

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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
