What to Expect When Fire Damage Restoration Professionals Respond in the Bronx
Dealing with the aftermath of a household fire in your brownstone, condo, or townhouse in the Bronx is an intense situation. It is hard to imagine that the soot, water, and debris clogging up the rooms in your home ever will be set to rights. The key is to engage the services of a reputable fire loss remediation company. We have both trained technicians and equipment to get your dwelling back to preloss condition.
Working with your insurance company is critical when we mitigate fire damage in your Bronx apartment. Often your insurance company recommends disaster restoration companies, and we are proud to be among that list of highly-qualified providers. We are a full-spectrum recovery business handling fire, water, mold, cleaning of all kinds, and more. We intend to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
Because so much water is typically used to extinguish fires SERVPRO takes on water removal and structural drying tasks first. Our service vehicles are stocked with pumps, extractors, air movers, heaters and dehumidifiers to get standing water and residual moisture out fast so that already harmed materials do not disintegrate further and to avoid secondary issues like mold growth.
SERVPRO’s technicians master multiple certifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Our graduates of the Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) course use strategies learned to characterize soot types and match appropriate products and techniques to remove residues from surfaces. Because soot can range from loose ash to a thick, sticky coating, it is crucial to treat it according to the research-based methods developed by the IICRC to avoid smearing or grinding it into a surface. Ashy soot vacuums or dry sponges away, and the thicker, black soot from electrical or smoldering fires needs agitation and cleaners with surfactants and wetting agents.
A third type of soot commonly results from kitchen fires. Protein-based, the deposit is thin but strongly adhesive with a noxious smell. SERVPRO crews employ solvents and abrasive tools to remove it, taking great care not to damage the underlying surfaces.
