SERVPRO in Newburgh Offers Expert Fire Cleanup

Property fires can be an emotionally draining situation for homeowners. Over 450,000 structural fires occur in the US every year, primarily from cooking, smoking, electronics, and appliance malfunctions. Restoration services are usually enacted as part of an insurance program between insurers and policyholders. Our role as restoration technicians is to salvage or repair the structure and contents of your home. 

Our role as a fire damage restoration service in Newburgh is manifold encompassing assessment, estimate, and repair. On arrival, our technicians can communicate directly with you to inform you of what can be repaired, what needs replacing, and whether any mitigation activities can help to reduce loss. One example of mitigation is expediently drying parts of the property that may have become wet during the firefighting procedure. Moisture can cause soot or ash to bond with surfaces and fabrics. It increases our perception of malodors and leads to secondary damages such as microbial growth. Using fast-drying procedures in the home can help to limit potential losses in the immediate aftermath of a home emergency. 

Smoke residues, ash, and debris can make parts of the home unsafe or uninhabitable. SERVPRO can help reduce the timeframe of restoration service to minimize the impact on your everyday life. We record the testing, loss detailing, and the extent of the damages process on behalf of your insurer. We can help your insurer return an accurate estimate quickly by conducting these tasks. Once a breakdown of damages and repair is in your hands, we can begin restoration immediately. But before any work is complete, we provide you with an authorization to begin services form. Our crew chiefs are happy to answer any queries you may have before work starts. Once you provide your signature, we can set to work in an organized and efficient manner. 

Repairing a Burnt Structure

  • Removing smoke residues and odor from the structure is essential for restoration.
  • Sorting materials into salvageable and non-salvageable can assist with the speed of recovery by avoiding wasting time on heavily damaged or inexpensive materials.
  • Repair of salvageable items can include repainting, refinishing, or resurfacing high-value items like hardwood furniture.

There can be many variations when it comes to restoring a fire damaged structure. Our technicians have to think on their feet and make informed choices regarding performing services. They rely on industry-leading training to formulate a game plan and advanced equipment to help with the execution. A burnt property is full of material remnants destroyed beyond repair during the combustion process. Additionally, the heat and smoke produced can damage surfaces extending several meters beyond the ignition source. Restoration involves replacing materials damaged beyond repair and restoring those surfaces, furnishings, and belongings that may have been impacted by smoke.  

Severity of Damages

  • Smoke residues in the ignition area usually characterize minor property damage. That damage does not extend beyond the initial flames. Usually resolvable with wet and dry cleaning.
  • Medium damages feature significant charring of materials at the ignition point, with smoke residues spreading to adjacent rooms. Replacement and refinishing of surfaces are often necessary.
  • Significant damages require extensive structural repair and emergency services such as boarding up or sealing the property. Restoration may take several months to complete.
