Fire Damage Restoration Objectives for Pearl River Homes
Emergency Services Hasten Fire Damage Restoration in Pearl River
There are multiple emergency services and mitigative strategies that we can implement upon arrival. The first steps professionals take in fire-damaged homes make a difference in the total restoration time and cost.
Indoor Air Quality
Perhaps one of the biggest obstacles to safety after fire damage in Pearl River homes is threats to the indoor air quality (IAQ.) With efforts like HEPA filtration and cleaning approaches, we can grab smoke, solids, and sooty particles out of the air to reduce their health impact on those responding to the damage in your home. Hydroxyl generators can also reduce odors along with IAQ improvement.
One of the byproducts of an active fire that gets extinguished is the heaps of debris and damaged elements throughout the property. In most cases, it is beneficial to quickly discard and remove these piles of structural remnants for several reasons. Some of the advantages of removing fire debris include:
- Reduce odors
- Lessen soot concentration
- Identify structural issues
- Improve safety condition
Standing Water from Suppression
Suppressing a fire and extinguishing the flames spreading through the house can often involve a large volume of water. The rapid response of firefighting teams can protect much of the property from greater fire damage, but standing water still becomes a concern in areas where the flames existed. We have multiple extraction and removal tools to overcome standing water and trapped moisture.
It is also important to address any structural concerns after fire damage exposures. Prolonged contact with active fires can cripple or destroy structural elements, compromising their integrity and making unsafe conditions for the occupants of the house and responding technicians. We have controlled demolition and repair strategies that can begin as soon as our team arrives.
Fires are rapidly spreading and destructive disasters several homes experience in their lifetimes. As debilitating as these situations might be, we have experienced SERVPRO of Southern Rockland County fire restorers to help. Give us a call today at (845) 400-4888.
