Dewitt, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires can be a hazardous situation for Onondaga county properties. Being a suburb of Syracuse, there are many large commercial properties like Le Moyne College and Shoppingtown Mall, along with thousands of homes. We have efficient fire restoration and mitigation solutions to help.

What Mitigation Steps Help DeWitt Homes?

Mitigating fire damage means prioritizing the immediate and urgent needs of a damaged home or business after a fire loss event. As leading restoration professionals trained as FSRT-Certified technicians, we can offer several emergency services early in recovery like:

  • Smoke damage cleaning
  • Water removal services
  • Debris removal
  • Fire and smoke damage removal 

Clearing Odors After Structure Fires

Odors can be a common concern for households after extinguishing a fire. Combustion of materials and the spread of smoke particles can create offensive odors in many rooms of the house. Early actions like debris removal can lessen odor concentration, requiring less contact time for deodorization and filtration measures improving indoor air quality. 

Removing Soot from Damaged Surfaces in DeWitt Homes 

Solvents and detergents are fundamental products in removing and managing soot and smoke residue threats in a household after a fire. Thick soil deposits first require loose debris removal with vacuums and mechanical action. Still, solvents and detergents either emulsify or dissolve remaining soot particles to protect underlying substrates in many cases.

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

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
