Syracuse, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

The aftermath of residential or commercial fire damage in Syracuse requires professional intervention. Fire loss recovery is a complicated process, with the potential for progressive structural deterioration and long-term exposure to toxic residues for occupants of affected properties if completed inadequately. Ensure your fire cleanup follows best practices developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) by hiring the trained and certified team at SERVPRO of East Onondaga County. 

Professional Fire Damage Cleanup in Syracuse Includes Multiple Phases

Fire loss mitigation, remediation, and restoration must follow proper protocols to resolve the broad range of consequences encountered. Our managers assess and arrange for control of safety hazards before directing technicians to begin emergency services, which can encompass:

  • Securing damaged structures
  • Firefighting water removal, containment, and lawful disposal
  • Structural disinfection and drying
  • Clearing of debris
  • Evaluation of residues and affected surfaces throughout the property
  • Matching of products, tools, and techniquesfor cleaning planning
  • Implementation of cleaning plan
  • Deodorization
  • Repairs and rebuilding

Management of Potential Toxins and Contents in Syracuse Homes

Smoke contains numerous hazardous components, airborne and later deposited as soot. SERVPRO uses sophisticated negative pressure containment systems to filter and vent contaminated air during cleanup. Our crews don personal protective equipment (PPE) to avoid inhaling or touching toxins and recommend occupants evacuate work areas. We often pack out contents of residential and commercial properties to permit focused water removal and intensive cleaning of the structure and removed items.

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

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 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.
