Fire Damage Cleanup Solutions for Your Home 

Those visiting the Queen City of the Hudson might be surprised at this city's unique history. As one of the older segments of Dutchess County, Poughkeepsie, this is currently home to more than 30,000 people. A population like this lends a lot of leeways for small businesses and local eateries to gain a stable foothold, which can be seen with spots like the Foxhole Deli, The Academy, and Hurricane Grill & Wings. Similarly, the unique placement of the town and its connection to American History has allowed several prominent institutions to find stability, including Marist College, Vassar College, and the Dutchess Community College.

History is what the community is most recognized for, which is what makes fire and smoke damage in Poughkeepsie such a concern. The city limits have five central historic districts, each with multiple properties protected by the National Register of Historic Places. These districts include Academy Street, Balding Avenue, Dwight-Hooker Avenue, Garfield Place, and Mill Street-North Clover Street. In addition, remarkable feats of architecture are found throughout the city to attract thousands of tourists, including the Bardavon Opera House, constructed in 1869.

Cleaning Up Smoke Damage

Cleaning up after a fire loss event can mean focusing on multiple ways smoke damage impacts your property. These can include:

  • Soot – Soot is a deposit of smoke solids on surfaces. The residue is corrosive and destructive, so we use emulsification and dissolving techniques with solvents and detergents to manage these threats.
  • Compromised Air – We can use HEPA air scrubbers to manage airborne contaminants a fire loss creates.
  • Odors – Combustion burns many materials, some leading to overwhelming smells. Deodorization practices are critical in fire recovery.

Our fast arrival helps to protect historic structures throughout the city. Still, we are also Large Loss specialists to work with the area's most substantial facilities like the Mid-Hudson Children's Museum, Barrett Art Center, and the Poughkeepsie Galleria. Fire and smoke damage does not have to destroy your home; call SERVPRO® of NW & SE Dutchess County at (845) 635-4550.
