Fire Damage Technicians in Syracuse Can Help you Recover your Home. Contact SERVPRO Twenty-Four-Hours a Day for Assistance.

What dangers are present in a burnt structure?
All fire recovery worksites have dangers that need addressing before it is safe to restore your Syracuse home. We take these hazards seriously to provide temporary safety for any workers on the site and long-term protection of your home after fire loss recovery. Safety practices are useful to prevent workers, or residents, from experiencing illness or injury when on the site. Micro soots, structural deficiencies, and electrics can all be potential hazards for anybody entering a fire-damaged site. SERVPRO can minimize risk in the property while still performing the effective and efficient restoration.

How do restorers improve safety at a fire loss site?
    •    Crew chiefs can discuss with you, the homeowner, the security of the loss site, and methods of access.
    •    A thorough safety evaluation to discover any potential hazards that are present within the loss site.
    •    Organizing the work site appropriately to minimize exposure to harm for both workers and restoration technicians

Are there national regulations for fire safety?
The presence of fire damage in your Syracuse home presents many potential hazards. We follow The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidance when performing work in a damaged structure. By establishing a safe site comprehensively, we can speed up the efficiency of turning your home back to its preloss condition. OSHA guidance insists that we provide the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) for all workers that enter the loss site.

Is PPE essential to maintain?
    •    PPE should be cleaned after each usage to minimize potential harm to the wearer
    •    Using splash goggles and chemical resistant gloves when mixing powerful cleaning agents and smoke residue removers.
    •    Avoid sharing equipment between workers for the duration of the restoration procedure.

A safe worksite can often improve the efficiency of restoration and ensure workers remain safe from harm. Contact SERVPRO of East Onondaga County at (315) 446-8776 now.

Should Furniture Be Discarded After a Flood?

SERVPRO Attempts to Restore Moisture-Damaged Furniture in Syracuse.

After a spring flood in Syracuse, you may assume that you need to dispose of your impacted furniture before moving on to replacing carpet and drywall. However, restoration may be possible depending on the severity of the damage and your furniture materials. For instance, particleboard tends to warp because it soaks up water while the laminated surfaces act as a vapor barrier. This combination causes uneven water retention that leads to extensive warping.

What is the Stain Removal Process?

SERVPRO Removes Stains Before Drying Your Furnishings

Removing stains from your upholstery in your flood-damaged home in Syracuse is critical for restoration. It may seem counterintuitive to perform stain-removal before drying the furniture, but if you dry the upholstery first, you may set the stain, making it more difficult to remove. Our Technicians treat the upholstery with SERVPRO's specially formulated Stain Remover before moving on to dry the furniture.

What are Some Moisture Effects on Upholstered Furnishings?

  • Swelling: Wood frames in couches and chairs may sustain damage in the flood, causing them to swell and even crack. This gives the appearance of the furniture swelling up to a larger size.
  • Water Spotting: Some fabric may show water sporadically. To deal with this, technicians often wet the entirety of the surface before cleaning.
  • Color Bleeding: When wet, upholstery colors may bleed, mainly if there are metal button backings.

What Are Some of the Steps Toward Furniture Restoration?

  • Extract water from furniture using an extraction wand.
  • Tent cushions to facilitate quicker drying.
  • Lift wet furniture off of soaked carpet (wood or dense foam blocks) to mitigate further damage for both the furniture and carpet.

For 24/7 assistance after a flood, contact SERVPRO of East Onondaga County at (315) 446-8776. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

With a metropolitan area of more than 660,000 people, Syracuse has become the fifth most populated city in New York. With its proximity to Lake Ontario, it has grown steadily over the centuries to become nearly as large as the nearby port city of Rochester, the third-largest city in the state, accessible by the connecting I-90 in a mere hour and twenty minutes. Because of the humid continental climates, moist air becomes a continuous threat to structures through mold development or water damages. Rain and snow are interchangeable in their potential for damaging area homes and businesses, especially with lake effect storms rolling in off Lake Ontario and Nor' easter storms typical of the winter. The possibilities of blizzards are consistent as well, though Onondaga County has not seen truly crippling snowfall since the infamous blizzard in 1993, which heaped 43 inches over two days.

Restoring Syracuse Homes and Businesses After Water Damage

While there are nearly 150,000 residents within the city limits, Syracuse is best known for the University. The campus is home to an estimated 23,000 students every semester, which has led to a boost in the local retail and dining developments around University Hill and Westcott neighborhoods. These areas are within a short distance of the campus and feature a long list of bars, restaurants, retail stores, and specialty shops. When Nor' easters and other water damage incidents impact large structures like the Carrier Dome, where the Orange play various sports, you can get immediate service from large loss restoration technicians by calling our SERVPRO team (315) 446-8776.

Polar vortexes are another threat that can lead to burst pipes in large commercial structures throughout the city like Le Moyne College and SUNY Upstate Medical University near Syracuse University's main campus. Despite the cold temperatures through a portion of the winter season, mild spring and summer weather make for favorable conditions in upstate New York.

A focus on the arts has allowed Syracuse to become more than just a home for the Orange. With cultural and historical centers like the Erie Canal Museum and the Everson Museum of Art, people can see and experience the region's changing landscapes and varying artistic muses evolving from one year to the next. Live productions and performances can also be caught at the Syracuse Stage proving grounds, where many current Broadway productions first tested themselves. These are landmarks of the city, but equally susceptible to a burst pipe or other water damage situations that require immediate attention and mitigation.

Emergency Water Damage Scenarios

  • Burst pipes after freezing
  • Heavy snowfall roof damage
  • Flooding from ice jams 
  • Sewage and draining issues
  • Overflowing toilets and appliances
  • Post-fire extinguishment flooding
  • Broken plumbing

What Does Water Clean Up in A Home Involve?

9/28/2020 (Permalink)

Standing water in a living room. Let SERVPRO take over your water damage clean up in Syracuse.

SERVPRO Sends Fully Kitted Crews to Perform Water Clean-Up in Affected Syracuse Properties, Guaranteeing a Positive Outcome

Water cleanup may sound like a straightforward procedure only involving stagnant water extraction and drying of wet items in an affected property. However, that is rarely the case since cleanup can involve other difficult tasks depending on the water source and other issues caused by the water loss incident. SERVPRO provides the resources needed to conveniently restore Syracuse properties to their preloss state after any incident that leaves water in unwanted areas of the property.

How does the source influence the water cleanup process in a Syracuse home?

The origin of the water affecting your property can present several challenges depending on factors like:

  • Location of the leak within the property
  • The condition of the spilled water
  • The volume of water involved

The water released into your Syracuse house can originate from any section of the property, such as within the ceiling and walls or in open areas such as around sinks or baths. An elevated source can spread moisture over a vast area because of gravitational flow. On the other hand, a leak originating within an enclosed space complicates the cleanup process by necessitating demolition. If the water is released in a trickle, discovery is likely to take time, allowing secondary issues like mold and other forms of material deterioration to develop. Our SERVPRO technicians can simplify restoration under these conditions since we have advanced equipment and the training to tackle them.

Why does the condition of the water affect cleanup?

Leaks or other intrusions can release water with different levels of soiling. For easier identification of the water condition, or what to expect during the cleanup, spilled water can be categorized in three ways:

  • Clean water
  • Greywater 
  • Blackwater

The categorization helps identify the level of soiling or contamination and thus the cleanup steps needed. Water leaks from plumbing lines or appliances are mostly clean or greywater cases since there are no contaminants involved. Regular cleanup procedures are therefore sufficient. However, since microbial processes occur when water sits in a property over extended periods, the greywater can turn into black water, necessitating decontamination processes. Our SERVPRO technicians can help prevent such adverse outcomes since we respond fast when notified of the incident and expedite the cleanup processes using state of the art equipment.

What needs clean up first?

The course of action taken when cleaning a house differs depending on factors like:

  • The sections of the property affected by the water
  • The vulnerability to moisture damage of materials involved  
  • The property size

When an incident affects one room or a limited section of the property, decision-making is easier since the volume of the water involved is minimal. The affected materials and type of soiling are also likely to be uniform. For instance, the floor might be carpeted, tiled, or wooden in the entire area, so you do not have to worry about what to prioritize. In such cases, a straightforward approach, such as removing standing water, drying the wet materials, and applying antimicrobial products on surfaces, is sufficient. 

If the spilled water spreads all over the house, you have to prioritize some actions or areas to limit the damage levels by the time cleanup is over. Our SERVPRO technicians can help with this by inspecting your property to establish priority areas. For instance, if the standing water affects different rooms with different types of flooring such as carpets, wood, concrete, or tiles, we prioritize extraction from wood or carpet floors before checking the concrete or tiled areas. Water can cause delamination in carpets or buckling in hardwood floorboards. Since such problems are irreversible, removing water from such surfaces during cleanup should be given priority.

Issues like running dyes, stains, mold, or bad odor development can ruin the outcome of the cleaning exercise. Taking steps that minimize the chances of such issues developing is crucial.  In most cases, working fast, moving colorfast materials away from areas with vulnerable items should help prevent those problems. Our SERVPRO technicians help in different ways, including testing the affected materials and providing resources such as hand carts for moving heavy furniture items. We also incorporate finishing processes such as deodorization into the cleanup. For instance, we mix water based deodorizers with the cleaning solutions to ensure any odors are replaced with a sweet scent. 

In general, the cleanup of a house after a water spill takes more than just applying products and agitating surfaces. Proper planning is necessary to ensure smooth operations also to prevent secondary problems that develop due to delays.

Can a Firm's HR Records Be Protected From Mold Damage?

9/15/2020 (Permalink)

Files SERVPRO is here to help protect your important files from mold damage.

Local Business Owners Concerned About Mold Damage To Documents.

Keeping records is part of daily life for Syracuse entrepreneurs. Human Resources (HR) are essential to any firm, and each department must keep comprehensive records. HR records include:

  • Employee information such as date of employment and contact details
  • Formal contracts and job descriptions
  • Records of pay and bonuses
  • Sickness and absence records

Many Syracuse companies avoid mold damage by using electronic files. However, some businesses also have physical documents, especially for older files. Those physical papers need protection.

Can mold damage HR papers?

Yes, mold can undoubtedly damage HR papers. Mold is a naturally-growing fungus that can propagate anywhere that is dark and warm enough and provides moisture and a food source. Paper is one of the food sources that mold loves to munch on. As firms often keep older records in the dark cupboards or basements, they might be ripe for mold damage.

How can I protect my firm’s HR records?

The most important thing you can do is make the switch to electronic records if you have not already. Make sure you have backups of electronic documents, too – Cloud storage is helpful.

For remaining paper records, you might:

  • Install dehumidifiers in storage areas to cut down moisture
  • Store documents in watertight boxes so water cannot enter
  • Keep files away from potentially moldy areas such as dark corners 

What can SERVPRO do to help?

SERVPRO teams include trained mold remediation experts, who can remediate mold and reduce the risk of it coming back.

We will assess the situation in your office building, and let you know the steps we plan to take to fix the mold problem. In many cases, we start by setting up containment around the affected area. We use plastic sheeting to seal the spot off, cover all vents, and switch off the HVAC to stop the spores from escaping.

For very mild cases, gentle brushing and decontamination are enough to save records. In more advanced cases, we can consider vacuum freeze-drying to halt the damage and restore the documents.

Our teams also monitor moisture levels and dry the storage area to make it harder for mold to regrow.

For help protecting your business documents from mold damage, call SERVPRO of East Onondaga County at (315) 446-8776.

Are There Significant Hazards My Family and I Might Encounter After a Fire Damages Our Syracuse Home?

9/9/2020 (Permalink)

Charred Remains of Kitchen Destroyed by Fire Safety is a priority as SERVPRO of East Onondaga County assesses, plans, and implements fire damage strategies in homes.

SERVPRO Always Assesses for Hazards and Implements Controls to Keep Syracuse Residents Safe During Fire Damage Mitigation and Remediation

A fire in your Syracuse home is not merely an inconvenience or a challenge to your cleaning expertise. The airborne and settled residues left after the combustion of a broad range of building materials and contents can pose health concerns. Heat and flames, plus the chemicals and water used to beat them back, can damage structures severely, weakening supports and exposing your family, you, and workers to many dangers.

What Kinds of Hazards Are Present After a Household Fire?
    •    Overhead hazards that might result in a collapse created by
    •    Partial or complete burn through
    •    Collection of firefighting water in ceilings and wall cavities
    •    Electric shock hazards due to pooled water and wet wires, cords, and outlets
    •    Slip, trip, and fall hazards because of wet or flooded floors and submerged debris
    •    Exposure to hazardous materials such as chemical, asbestos, or lead that, although perhaps previously encapsulated, was disturbed by the fire damage, water pressure, or mitigation and remediation efforts
    •    Airborne smoke residues, including toxic gasses released during combustion

How Do Professional Fire Damage Recovery Crews Control the Hazards?
SERVPRO evaluates the types and severity of fire damage hazards present in your home during our initial assessment. We approach each fire individually and adapt our controls and procedures during the project as necessary if new issues surface. To keep your family safe and our workers protected, we might:

    •    Shut off the power until electrical shock issues resolve
    •    Prioritize water removal
    •    Recommend a temporary evacuation of occupants, always working with your and your insurance company
    •    Contain the fire site and work areas with heavy plastic sheeting, adding air scrubbing technology to trap contaminants in HEPA filters before exhausting to the outside
    •    Employ personal protective equipment (PPE)

Use our master of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training to match appropriate and efficient cleaning products, tools, and methodology to remove toxic and corrosive residues from the surfaces and contents of your home

Safety is a priority as SERVPRO of East Onondaga County assesses, plans, and implements fire damage strategies in homes. Call (315) 446-8776 before the firefighters wind up their duties so we can be onsite fast and ready to make it “Like it never even happened.”

What All Can SERVPRO Do After Disasters Strike Syracuse Structures?

8/30/2020 (Permalink)

living room interior While you might not know what kind of restoration service your home could require, you can be assured that our team can help.

Many have come to depend on the fast and experienced response of our restoration professionals in an emergency between our large commercial structures and thousands of homes.

With both the university and countless other properties throughout Syracuse, we have become a trusted name for reliable responses when disasters strike. Along with two other sister franchises both under the operation of our owner Tim Skov, we have a unified approach to handling both large loss situations and conditions where many properties become damaged simultaneously. Because there is such a wide variety of potential disasters that could impact area properties, we have skilled technicians in all restoration niches, including water, fire, storm, flood, and mold remediation. We even have trained technicians for cleaning up biohazardous threats.


Our restoration professionals can stay busy with the recovery of commercial properties between all of the buildings and structures on Syracuse University’s campus and surrounding areas. When you combine the sprawling district with the thousands of other businesses and companies relying on our fast and confident response for disasters, preparedness for emergencies is an area where we must put considerable focus.

What Immediate Actions Can Our Restorers Take to Recover the Property?
The protection of your property is vital when our team first arrives. With situations like flooding or even fire loss events, your Syracuse business could suffer more significant damages because of structural weaknesses and vulnerabilities that exist. Our in-house contractors can work alongside restoration technicians to provide immediate emergency services that can reduce the secondary effects likely to follow unchecked structural openings. Some of these include:

    •    Board-up
    •    Tarping
    •    Temporary Fencing
    •    Extraction
    •    Controlled Demolition

How Can My Business Get Thoroughly Clean?
Thoroughly cleaning your property is a more pressing concern and need than ever before. Syracuse homes and businesses have seen how quickly situations like the global COVID-19 pandemic swept through New York, so it is necessary to take the appropriate measures to clean surfaces and shared spaces. Our defensive cleaning program called Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is our most comprehensive effort to provide this higher level of deep cleaning.


Over the past several decades, Syracuse has fallen victim to dominant torrential rainfall, hurricane-level storms, and heavy snowfall that damage structures under its weight. All of these conditions can impact the area at different times of the year, keeping our professionals in need of a fast response once we are notified of potential emergencies.

Why Do Structural Concerns Need to Get Repaired First?
It is often vital for our contractors to work even before our mitigation specialists start their process. Water extraction and other restoration approaches can be ineffective without first addressing structural concerns for the Syracuse property. When our contractors arrive alongside restoration technicians, we can begin emergency services designed exclusively to seal up openings in the structure and reduce the overall loss to the building.

Can Flooding Get Removed?
Flooding is an unfortunate side effect of nearly every storm loss situation. When structural vulnerabilities exist, water penetration is often not far behind for your Syracuse home or business. Removing standing water can reduce the saturation and migration of flooding throughout the property. Some of the practical tools that we use for extraction include:

    •    Wet Vacuums
    •    Submersible Pumps
    •    Air Movers
    •    Dehumidifiers


One of the most effective ways to address fire loss incidents in Syracuse homes and businesses involves assessing the damage and migration of the effects. Job scoping is a vital phase of determining the extent of the damage and the severity of structural deterioration in your home after fire losses. This phase also helps our technicians evaluate your personal belongings to see what can be salvaged, what has already become too damaged, and what can benefit from offsite recovery efforts.

Are Soot Residues Challenging to Remove?
Smoke residues can be present on many surfaces throughout your Syracuse home. Because there are many potential sources and types of these smoke residues, there is no one set solution to remove these coatings from materials and contents. For example, wet smoke residues are thicker and more challenging to remove than dry smoke. Some of the effective strategies that we have for eliminating soot concerns include:

    •    Surface Cleaning
    •    Abrasive and Agitative Cleaning Approaches
    •    Soda Blasting
    •    Controlled Demolition

What Tools Eliminate Lingering Odors?
The odors left behind after a fire can be overwhelming in specific areas of your Syracuse property. Where fires burn the longest are often points where odors can be the strongest. We have multiple tools that can address these harsh scents circulating in the environment and embedded into porous materials and content throughout the house. We have effective solutions for neutralizing odors from thermal fogging to hydroxyl and ozone generators.


There is often a 48-hour window that restorers utilize beginning with the understood starting point of water loss incidents. This window of time is usually a countdown when certain materials exposed to water loss and surface moisture concerns become unsalvageable. It is beneficial for Syracuse homeowners to react fast to water loss emergencies to ensure that our professionals can reach your home and began mitigation efforts as quickly as possible.

What Are Effective Water Removal Solutions?
Extraction is a vital effort because standing water can be such a threat to your home. When your Syracuse structure battles pooling water in specific areas, there are multiple tools that we can use to address these concerns. Water removal can be much more efficient through the deployment of machines and attachments such as:

    •    Weighted Extractors
    •    Wet Vacuums
    •    Carpet Wands
    •    Submersible Pumps

What Areas Require Focused Drying Attention?
Some areas are more challenging to dry than others in your Syracuse home. While air movers in dehumidifiers can be useful for many surface concerns, and even water damaged contents, specialty equipment is often required to impact moisture pockets beyond the surface. Tools like our floor mat drying system and positive pressure systems can both be vital in this effort.

While you might not know what kind of restoration service your home could require, you can be assured that our SERVPRO of East Onondaga County team can help. Give us a call anytime at (315) 446-8776.,_New_York

SERVPRO Technicians Routinely Remove Smoke and Fire Damage from Furnishings for Residents of Syracuse.

What qualifications should I look at for content restoration?

Restoring the contents of your Syracuse home requires careful planning and expert attention to detail. Our roster of technicians hold qualifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications- a nationally recognized, independent awarding body. We act responsibly to identify different types of smoke and odor issues in furnishings before performing the necessary steps to return them to a preloss condition. Soft furnishings can be tricky to restore due to their diverse material composition. Using pH tests and pre-testing, we can ensure that your contents do not suffer from dye bleeding, shrinkage, or fiber wear during the restorative process.

How do I remove smoky odors from soft furnishings?

Soft furnishings tend to be porous in nature, which can lead them to absorb fire damage in your Syracuse home. Soots and soils may affect the surface level of materials, while high-pressure fires can lead to odor penetration beneath the surface of the fabric. SERVPRO can deploy air-filtration devices to remove potentially odor-causing soot particles from the area and apply liquid deodorants directly onto furnishings. Standard timings for odor dispersal can vary, but usually, we expect odors to depart at the two-week mark. Using a masking agent, SERVPRO technicians can reduce the impact of unpleasant odors until they disperse naturally and become no longer noticeable.

What equipment do I need to remove fire odors?

  • Misters and ultra-low volume thermal foggers can help to penetrate fabrics or crevices with an odor-neutralizing solvent
  • Odor pellets in problem locations can mask odors temporarily until they dissipate
  • Air filtration using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can restore indoor air quality and remove the odor-causing particles

If you need content restoration after a recent fire, contact SERVPRO of East Onondaga County at (315) 446-8776.
