What Emergency Services Aid Manhattan Fire Restoration?
Mitigation is a critical process for fire damaged homes and one that must begin immediately. With a team of fire restorers ready to respond 24/7, we can start emergency services as soon as we arrive at a compromised address. From inspections to debris removal, our initial actions are deliberate and focused on making restoration efficient.
What Makes Our Fire Restoration Efficient in Manhattan?
After much of the mitigation completes, we still have the mindset to get you back into your property as soon as possible. Often, this means addressing the direst of concerns for the house, such as soot and smoke residues on surfaces. Ceilings and upper portions of walls often experience the worst of smoke soils, and solutions range from chem sponges to soda blasting to address these concerns.
What Smoke Remediation Options Exist for Manhattan Homes?
Smoke remediation might include soot removal, but it also targets odors that can make comfortable living impossible. With portable deodorizers like foggers or standalone units like hydroxyl generators, we can help remove harsh smells after a fire.

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
Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.
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.
