Our project managers oversee the entire process and we make sure that everything is up to code and done safely. We will draw up plans, evaluate your space, handle the construction needs, and even expertly clean and sanitize your space when we are done. 

Our crew has done bathroom remodels, kitchen renovations, basement projects, new additions and more—and we can help your home, too!

  3. Dehumidifiers are key-Use a dehumidifier in places that are prone to being humid, like your basement.

Stay cool, folks! For questions about mold, give us a call.

Flooded basement in Patchogue

Customers expansion tank on the boiler blew.
This left her basement floor and walls to take on water damage.
Being that the basement had no dehumidifier prior to the event this caused mold growth, and condensation all around the basement walls and ceiling.
SERVPRO came in and removed all wet contents. We set up air scrubbers and a dehumidifier to dry out the remaining moisture. This elderly customer who never goes into her basement has terrible health and she was so concerned over the mold. We worked quick and made sure to take care of all her concerns.

What to Do After a House Fire | SERVPRO of Patchogue

6/16/2023 (Permalink)

Insurance claim paperwork on a desk with a hand holding a pen about to fill in the form Fires are scary events. If you've experienced a fire, call SERVPRO of Patchogue to restore your home to preloss condition.

In the aftermath of a fire, it can be hard to know what to do! But your local SERVPRO professionals are here to walk you through your next steps so that you feel prepared for what’s ahead.

By reading through these basics, you’ll know exactly what to do when a fire disaster occurs.

1. Stay Safe

The most important thing is to make sure that your family is safe, which means staying out of the home until officials confirm it’s safe to reenter! When inside, make sure to wear protective gear like gloves, masks and closed-toed shoes to protect yourself.

2. Talk With Your Insurance Provider

Let your insurance company know about the fire as soon as possible to begin the claims process! Take photographs and document everything related to the incident. These pictures and documents will be invaluable later on in the claims process.

3. Call in the Professionals

Fire damage can have many layers. Whether you’re dealing with structural instability, soot, debris or other hazards, you can expedite the repair and restoration process by calling a professional team who is trained to handle the situation quickly and seamlessly. When you call SERVPRO, the next steps are the ones we’ll take!

4. Secure Your Home

If you’re dealing with major structural damage, you need to protect your home from further damage by boarding up windows and doors. Our team can help you secure your home so it’s locked up while we work!

5. Check for Water Damage

It makes logical sense that fires lead to fire damage, but they can involve water damage as well! Firefighting efforts could lead to water damage, which can quickly evolve into a need for mold remediation as well. Our team can check your property for all of these issues and begin restoring your home.

6. Deal With Soot, Smoke and Odors

Soot and smoke can penetrate home surfaces and linger, impacting your indoor air quality and leaving strong odors behind. Traditional cleaning methods are often not enough and, in some cases, can mask a problem rather than resolving it properly. Our technicians have the knowledge and equipment to remove residue and restore your indoor air quality.

7. Begin Restoration Work

The easiest way to handle fire restoration work is by hiring a team with a multi-faceted skillset. Our staff in Suffolk County offers a full range of services, including rebuilding services, that can streamline the process and take some of the pressure off as a homeowner to hire multiple crews to address the same overarching issue.

Home fires can be stressful. That’s why you need to turn to a team with experience who can help erase the signs of any disaster and make you feel “Like it never even happened.”

If you’ve experienced a house fire, you need a team that can offer quick, comprehensive restoration work. SERVPRO of Patchogue is here for you, so give us a call today!

SERVPRO Helps with Fire Damage in Any Structure

The secret to any successful fire remediation and restoration process is the fast response of the technicians involved. As industry leaders, we have invested in the right equipment, vehicles, and education to ensure the fewest delays or obstacles in starting the needed mitigation work after fire disasters. Some of these actions include:

  • Soot removal
  • Surface cleaning
  • Smoke remediation
  • Deodorization
  • Water removal
  • Air filtration

Insurance plays a critical role in the Patchogue fire damage restoration and recovery process, as much of the cost of this rehabilitation of your property can get covered by the policy you hold for your residence. SERVPRO cuts out all the red tape of the damage claim approval to communicate directly with your adjuster about needed documentation, estimations, and restoration plans to get the cleanup started on your property.

Pre-Job Scoping Objectives

Job scoping is one of our SERVPRO team's initial actions to gather pertinent information about a property after a fire loss emergency. There are several objectives to this process, and the knowledge gathered helps to focus the restoration process to come. Priorities include: 

  • Ruined Contents – Direct inspection shows what contents have been destroyed by migrating effects and what can still get protected through relocation and on-site cleaning efforts.
  • Estimation – Claim approval is subject to the expected cost of restoration and reconstruction, so we use gathered scoping data to create the detailed estimate necessary.
  • Restoration Plan – Scoping helps our crew chief and production management create a custom restoration strategy for the property.

Fire Damage Hazards 

Much like nearly all restoration projects that our SERVPRO team undertakes, there are specific safety and structural integrity challenges to consider. Fires produce several safety hazards, few being as directly impactful as soot particles. We take early actions to regulate safety concerns, such as air filtration.

Fire Damage Mitigation

Mitigating fire loss threats involves swift and deliberate actions to protect the property and its structure. There are several focuses of this early effort, including:

  • Debris - Debris removal is a high priority of our team as it directly correlates to two of the more challenging restoration obstacles: soot concentration and malodors.
  • Water - Water is another threatening loss effect for the property. Many floors can deal with pooling and standing water concerns with high volumes of water used to extinguish a fire. We have extractors and vacuums to help control this dangerous circumstance.
  • Structure - Fires can have a devastating impact on all exposed structural elements, especially those partially or fully combusted during the blaze.

Fire Cleanup and Smoke Remediation

FSRT-Certified technicians of our SERVPRO team have multiple strategies to eliminate pressing concerns like soot and smoke residues on the surfaces of building materials and contents. Cleaning up after an extinguished fire typically requires a combination of these efforts, beginning with solvents and detergents for surface damage and continuing through more intricate abrasive methods and mechanical actions like steel wool, brushing, media blasting, and more.

Post-Fire Damage Reconstruction

South Shore residences and businesses vary considerably in age, with many historic properties making up the more than 4500 homes in Patchogue. After a structure fire, repairs and reconstruction are often necessary, especially for these older buildings less protected against the spread and destruction of the blaze. Our general contractor license helps us complete needed building services immediately following restoration.

Patchogue fire damage restoration and reconstruction involve a careful combination of experienced cleaning, needed repairs, and designated work approved by the insurance provider to return the property to preloss condition. We recognize the importance of a fast response so that you can reach our SERVPRO of Patchogue team 24/7 at (631) 924-1801.
