SERVPRO’s Expertise in Structural and Contents Hazard Assessment and Water Mitigation and Remediation Complement our House Fire Clean up Skills

When a homeowner surveys the wreckage after a household blaze in Albany, fire damage restoration reveals itself as a highly complicated set of tasks. Possessing only the ability to clean fire and smoke damage off surfaces is inadequate to return a fire-damaged home safely to “Like it never even happened.” Instead, the SERVPRO team brings a broad-based and comprehensive approach to fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup.

Can SERVPRO Offer Multi-Faceted Water and Fire Damage Restorations?

First responders leverage both copious quantities of water and a range of chemical fire extinguishing chemicals to knock down a fire. SERVPRO considers the disaster as a whole, evaluating the scene for safety hazards first, some risks created due to the structure-saving firefighting efforts. Because SERVPRO crews are certified to manage and remove water and chemicals as well as fire damage in your home, our technicians await the project manager’s assessment to secure and abate all types of safety concerns before mitigation and remediation phases:

  • Slip, trip, and fall risks caused by water and scattered debris
  • Electrical hazards due to water-compromised wiring, boxes, cords, and soaked equipment
  • Structural collapse worries, including trapped water in ceilings and other building cavities, as well as building materials weakened by water incursion, substantial charring, or both

Where Do SERVPRO Technicians Receive Training?

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) provides the framework and knowledge underlying SERVPRO crew members’ expertise. Our employees learn the industry best practices observed by either Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) or Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) or both. These and other disciplines mastered by our talented crews permit our team to manage all aspects of fire damage restoration, preceding according to research-based protocols.

Count on SERVPRO of South Albany County to guide fire damage recovery without delaying the process. We urge you to call (518) 456-1111 to consult with us on streamlining restoration, relying on our multiple disaster category mitigations and remediation certifications.
