Residence in Northwest Yonkers, NY Requires Repairs after Fire Damage

Dealing with fire damages can be overwhelming. The damages may be caused by soot, smoke or water the firefighters may have used to put out the fire. It is wise to address these damages immediately since the longer you wait, the more the damage will increase, requiring more repairs. To deal with these damages, you need to work with well-experienced professionals such as SERVPRO of Yonkers North, who will repair your property and leave it in its original state.

Last week, one of our customer’s residential properties in Northwest Yonkers, NY, suffered major fire damage. Luckily, the customer could get our number, and they contacted us on time. Immediately we dispatched our emergency team, and we managed to restore the property to its pre-damage condition.

This article takes you through the fire damage repair process we carried out to secure our customer’s house. From this, you will understand why we offer the best Fire Damage Repair in Yonkers, NY.

Initial Assessment

We understand the damage and the cost of unattended damages within your property after fire damage. Therefore, we do not immediately  start the restoration process once we get to your property. A SERVPRO professional first assesses the scene while paying attention to every essential detail.

Even though we do a thorough assessment here, we also act fast since the more the soot, smoke, and water linger, the more the damage. We develop a detailed restoration plan after this assessment, just like we did in the case discussed above.

Mark the Damaged Areas

After doing proper assessments of your property, we then block or reinforce any areas that seem damaged to prevent further issues with the property. These areas may have resulted from fire and water damage weakening the structure and foundation of the house. Blocking off these areas ensures that the exposed parts of your property are protected from further damage.

Soot and Debris Removal

After the fire has been put out, your home will likely be covered in soot and a strong smoke odor. This is why; next, just like we did for our client from Northwest Yonkers, NY, we use our state of the art equipment to remove soot from every area of the house. Also, we use air scrubbing technology to remove smoke odor from the whole property.

Water Removal and Sanitization

After removing all smoke, soot and debris from the house, we then remove any water in your house and dry out the affected areas. For this, we use specialized equipment such as fans, dehumidifiers and air movers. 

This process is essential, as it prevents the growth of mold, which could affect the quality of your house. Our team of experts may also use cleaning agents to clean and sanitize your walls, furniture and any other item that may be affected by water, soot or smoke.

Damage Repair 

Like we did at the property mentioned above, our professionals then perform the last step: reconstruction and repair. Though in every house we use a unique list of things that need repair, most houses normally require:

  • Removing and replacing drywall

  • Installing new flooring

  • Replacing windows and doors

  • Fixing damaged plumbing parts

  • Repairing or replacing the roof


The sooner our trained expert assesses your residential property following fire damage, the quicker the repair and restoration will be. If you need fire damage repair services, call SERVPRO of Yonkers North.
