Lewiston, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires are a violent and threatening situation for homes and businesses in the area. When fire events damage Niagara County properties, we can mitigate losses in even large properties like Mt. St. Mary's Hospital.

What Emergency Services Are Common After Lewiston Housefires?

Fire debris removal, content relocation, and water removal services are often among the chief mitigation actions when our team first arrives at a disaster. The efforts spent to protect contents and the structure can make restoration processes more efficient, such as:

  • fire damaged homes 
  • fire damage restoration 
  • fire and smoke damage 
  • smoke remediation 

Can Smoke Damage Removal Include Odors?

Smoke remediation is a general term meant to describe many actions taken to clean up and restore post-fire effects in area homes and businesses. One of the obstacles properties face is the formidable smells often generated by combustion. From the burning of plastics and aerosols, odors left behind can require immediate attention. We have deodorization tools, products, and practices to neutralize noxious scents after a fire.

Cleaning Up Lewiston Homes After Soot Damage

Soot can be one of the greatest restoration obstacles, primarily because its composition and threat level vary considerably from one affected surface to the next. Careful consideration is necessary to determine the best approach for cleaning and removal to protect underlying material substrates whenever possible.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

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)

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

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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
