SERVPRO Can Help Clean and Restore Personal Belongings After a Fire in a Lower East Apartment.

Life in the Lower East Side is vibrant and intense, so when a fire erupts, leaving soot, ashes, and an acrid smell in every corner of your home, it is best to call a fire restoration team for a quick resolution. When time is valuable, using the right tools for the task can save you both time and money, and only a professional crew can provide that expertise.

SERVPRO leads in fire damage restoration in the Lower East Side, and we know how to work at the pace you expect when living in this area.  Once the fire source is under control, we enter your unit carefully, avoiding cross-contamination and getting to work quickly to prevent damage escalation. Thanks to our specialty drying solutions, you may feel relief when we explain how we can salvage items such as pictures and documents, despite the damage resulting from the fire and extinguishing actions.

Does SERVPRO also help with the smell of smoke after a fire?

Our staff is and trains with industry experts on all aspects of fire restoration, including eliminating the smell it leaves behind. We adhere to the best practices of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). In most cases, the scent permeates throughout the living quarters, independent of how far the flames were from spaces such as bedrooms and closets. In this area’s high-rise apartment and condo buildings, the circulation of smoke often negatively affects the adjacent and other level neighbors’ units. Your ventilation system plays a role in allowing smoke to travel and for the odor to settle ubiquitously through your home.  To address this nuisance, our SERVPRO team may resort to some of the following-

  • Hydroxyl generators to purify the air with chemical conversion of malodors
  • Air scrubbers to remove particles traveling through your home, outfitted with charcoal deodorizing filters
  • Foggers to apply neutralizing solutions on all surfaces
  • Air movers to port smoke-filled ambient air to the exterior with flexible ducts (negative air pressure)

SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan is here to help when you need us. Call us at (917) 423-6364 as soon as you detect the issue and let us provide an efficient response to your restoration needs. Our goal, like yours, is to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
