Plainview, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Responding quickly to emergencies like fire losses can protect Plainview homes and businesses from more significant damages. As a preferred vendor for local insurance providers, we are often aware of post-fire cleaning and restoration needs before customers reach out. This is even more vital when considering large industrial and commercial parks throughout the city, totaling more than 330 acres. Our SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview team stays prepared to mobilize for mitigation and emergency services with experienced technicians and general contractors.

Cleaning Soot from Surfaces 

The removal of soot is one of the most substantial obstacles for our SERVPRO professionals upon arrival, as this can be a hazard to those exposed. While this can be concerning in a single-family home, it can be even more problematic with the traffic of structures like Plainview Hospital and Farmingdale State College nearby. We have multiple tactics for removing soils from surfaces and contents in-house, and some of these include: 

  • Dry Vacuuming
  • Solvents
  • Detergents
  • Abrasive Cleaning
  • Agitative Cleaning
  • Controlled Demolition

Neutralizing Harsh Odors  

Removing odors from the house after a fire loss can be another hurdle for professionals, and we have multiple tools to help accomplish this. Thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators can begin neutralizing odors in facilities without requiring others to vacate the area. These tools can be beneficial for large manufacturing structures like the headquarters for Veeco and Aeroflex.

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 carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

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)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

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 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.
