Putnam Valley, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Is Fire Damage As Bad As It Seems in Putnam Valley Homes?

Fire losses in Putnam Valley homes are often notorious for looking much worse than they might actually be when you get fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO team involved. Soot coating can often make the house appear as a total loss when in truth, skilled cleaning and restoration of these hazards can often protect and preserve the underlying materials. With wooden structures you might find at recreational areas or the Durland Scout Reservation, combustion of fuels like wood can cause widespread soot concerns for our professionals.

Cleaning and Fire Damage Repairs

Structural concerns are inevitable with fire damage, especially when combustion has occurred for many exposed materials. Partial burning of materials can generate smoke and residues, but it also presents a need for controlled demolition to provide a stable and safe surface for reconstruction and material replacement to occur. Limiting the total tear-out can help cultural centers like the Taconic Outdoor Education Center resume business more efficiently.

Removing Odors from Putnam Valley Properties

Many of the homes and historic properties throughout the area were built of porous materials, much farm structures like Willow Ridge Farm or Nieses Maple Farm. Trapped odors can be a considerable concern in these locations, making efforts like thermal fogging with potent deodorizing products vital. Without addressing trapped odors in structural elements, changing weather conditions can allow for smoke odors to return long after fire restoration was seemingly complete.
