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

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 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

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.
