Lake Grove, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
When the team arrives at a fire-damaged Lake Grove home, the initial actions taken by service professionals and contractors are essential. As they are called, emergency services are a vital element to the work that must get done to make fire losses “Like it never even happened.” These initial efforts are also critical in the many shopping centers throughout Lake Grove, like the Smith Haven Mall or the Lake Grove Shopping Center. Some of the emergency services possible with our technicians and contractors include:
- Roof tarping and repairs
- Debris removal
- Controlled demolition
- Air quality improvement
How Can Soot and Smoke Residues Get Removed?
Soot and smoke concerns are damaging on several fronts, as these particles can be highly toxic and hazardous carcinogens, but they can also stain and damage the finish of surfaces exposed. Removing these residues is vital for these reasons. It becomes an even greater concern when the presence impacts many people, such as the Sachem Central School District or those at The Bristal Assisted Living at Lake Grove facility.
Is Deodorization Possible?
Removing harsh smoke odors falls to capable equipment, such as thermal foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators. With soft materials in retail locations in the DSW Plaza, managing the cleaning and deodorization can protect investments in your stock and wares. Odor removal is often one of the final stages of restoration.

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
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
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 final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
