SERVPRO Helps After Hyde Park Fire Damage to Restore Properties

Fire damage can have a more significant impact on homes and businesses than many property owners realize. Some commercial loss incidents can be so severe that the company never reopens, so having fast, reliable, professional restoration is critical to returning to preloss conditions. SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County provides a full-service approach to repair and recovery.

There are dozens of possible causes for fire damage in Hyde Park homes, so the related restoration approaches change to suit these varying circumstances. Our primary objective is mitigating loss and protecting the structure in the earliest stages, incorporating our helpful balance of experienced technicians and general contractor license available 24/7. 

Mitigating Fire Damages

A reason for our continually growing and learning roster of fire damage restoration professionals is the urgency of loss incidents. Combustion leaves volatile environments that require immediate action to prevent more significant damage, structural compromise, or personal harm. The availability of our rapid response team ensures that we have qualified and certified technicians ready to help with:

  • Temporary Structural Work - Board up and tarping services are often needed, making our general contractor license a beneficial accreditation for emergency services. We seal over structural vulnerabilities and provide any urgent utility repairs.
  • Fire Debris Removal - Debris removal describes the physical actions to remove the heaps of ash, blistered building materials, and soot throughout the structure. Removing these harsh byproducts of combustion allows for less concentrated soot and odor damage during the subsequent fire cleanup and smoke remediation steps.
  • Content Relocation - The team works to determine the best course of action with exposed personal belongings, furniture, and household contents. If the items can be relocated to a safer area on the premises, this is desirable against the pack-out process to move these objects to our nearby SERVPRO facility.

Smoke Damage Remediation

Several pressing concerns exist with removing post-fire smoke damage from the property. Smoke can spread rapidly in a structure, even penetrating porous materials to be a more severe obstacle for restoration professionals working to resolve the problem. Depending on the type of smoke damage, restoration can take starkly different paths. Some of the usual compositions of soot and smoke damage seen on surfaces include:

  • Wet Smoke - Smoldering fires produce thick and challenging moist residues on surfaces. Because of the composition of these soils, solvents and detergents are needed for emulsification and dissolving.
  • Dry Smoke - High-heat fire loss events produce a thin, chalky film after several fuels are consumed during combustion. Dry cleaning methods can often be an efficient approach.
  • Grease/Protein Residues - These types of soils result from kitchen fires directly correlated with cooking. Grease fires specifically can be violent and get quickly out of control. Nearby surfaces can be coated with a thick protein residue that requires solvents to address.
  • Furnace Puffback Soils - Oil furnaces are a standard installation for their efficient heating of Dutchess County homes. When micro-explosions occur in the ignition chamber, ionized and moist soot damage can be propelled through the ducts into connected rooms.

Capable FSRT-Certified Professionals

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification set many industry standards governing expected results and quality restoration work.
