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

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.
