Fire Remediation & Fire Damage Restoration Services

It’s difficult to visualize an incident more damaging and traumatizing than a fire in your home — threatening you and your family’s sense of security. If you own a business, a fire can quickly cause your organization to come to a screeching halt.

However, the experts at UpRite Plus 2 specialize in fire damage remediation and restoration in the New York area —
ranging from Manhattan to Montauk. Accidents and fires never wait for a convenient time to occur.

As a result, we offer a 24/7, around-the-clock, rapid response team trained to quickly arrive at your property following the fire to begin the remediation and restoration services. We'll be there to provide solutions when you  need us the most, so you can focus on more important matters like caring for your family or managing your business.

The Fire Damage Restoration Process

At UpRite Plus 2, we offer services to return your property to its pre-fire state. Unfortunately, if you have a fire, we may need to remove walls or provide demolition services to start the restoration process. However, when we arrive on scene, our first concern is to ensure safety and mitigate any further damage.

Our rapid response technicians are trained to look past the obvious and evaluate the necessary fire recovery services
needed based on the condition of your property. Since not all fire damage is the same, our fire remediation and
restoration services will be customized to meet your individual needs. The most common procedures include:

  1. Immediately arrive to the property to board up any affected areas to protect the integrity and security of the remaining structure, so you do not have to worry with hiring a separate company.  
  2. Determining the type of fire that occurred by identifying the source.
  3. Identifying any wet areas that may need treatment from firefighting efforts.
  4. Remediating water damage
  5. Carefully examining any of your property damaged by soot or smoke.

Once we have conducted a full and thorough inspection of the property, we begin the process of restoring your home or place of business:

  1. All of the contents of the property are removed and safely packaged for storage and cleaning.
  2. We will then restore your property by completing any type of necessary construction required — ranging from minor building repairs to rebuilding from the ground up. To ensure safety, we always:  
    • Inspect the subfloors and framing of the property.
    • Ensure that all charred contents are removed (burned wood, insulation, etc.) because they can hold smoke odor.
    • Evaluate any floor coverings and carpets that may require removal.
    • Meticulously treat all affected surfaces to remove any lingering smoke odors.
  3. In the process of restoring your property, we use cutting-edge equipment and industry-leading procedures to ensure no traces of smoke remain. These best-practices include cleaning and deodorizing surfaces with our proven, proprietary and safe deodorizers.
  4. The final step is to make sure all items are restored to their original location and help you return to normal life.

Prior to starting any work on your home or property, we will explain the damage incurred as well as the necessary fire remediation and restoration services required.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Fire Remediation?

Your homeowners insurance is designed to protect you in the event of something unfortunate, like a fire. However, one of the most important pre-fire steps you can take is to protect your insurance policies and important papers by keeping it securely stored in a firebox. Anytime you do not have the documents, it can prolong the fire remediation and restoration process.

It's important to understand every homeowner's policy can vary - but the most common coverages include:

  • Dwelling coverage and any attached structures like a garage.
  • Detached structures like sheds, fences, and garages may also be covered.
  • Personal property, such as clothing, appliances, and furniture.

The experts at UpRite Plus 2 bring decades of experience working with business owners and homeowners. In almost all of our cases, the fire remediation and restoration services are covered under the insurance policy.

We regularly use our experience and work directly with the insurance company to ensure all filings are accurate and timely. We'll provide the proper documentation and records necessary to expedite your claim. By doing so, we'll alleviate your stress, so you can focus on more important matters, like caring for your family or your place of business.

Smoke Damage Restoration

In addition to the actual fire, the resulting smoke can cause serious damage to your property and contents:

  • Smoke soot will damage any adjacent walls that were not destroyed or damaged by the flame.
  • Smoke odor can permeate virtually any personal objects and invade building materials to leave a lasting odor.
  • Dry smoke residue is the result of a fast-burning fire. It’s usually powdery, dry, and doesn’t smear.
  • Wet smoke residue happens with smoldering types of fires that have low heat. This type of smoke residue has a very strong odor and is usually sticky, which can make cleanup more difficult.
  • Fuel or oil residue isn’t normally an issue unless petroleum products were being stored on the property.
    • Puff back of an oil burner or from a furnace can send soot throughout the property covering it's contents. Puff back is the result of fuel or oil residue.
  • Fire extinguisher residue may be left if the firefighters used chemical fire extinguishers. In either case, the amount of cleanup can vary based on the type of fire extinguisher being used.

Regardless of the type of smoke or fire damage you property has sustained, UpRite Plus 2 will restore it back to the pre-fire condition. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment and industry-leading best practices to effectively remove smoke and any other accompanying odors from your property.

Post Fire Restoration and Reconstruction Services

UpRite Plus 2 will perform the necessary construction, reconstruction, or post-fire repairs to your home or place of business. We offer everything ranging from minor to major repairs, such as painting, replacing drywall, installing new carpet, and more. If your home or business needs more extensive repairs, we can provide those as well.

We have the expertise to effectively reconstruct entire rooms or areas in your business or home. Whatever is required to restore your place of business or home, UpRite Plus 2 will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

The Golden Hours of Recovery

If your home or business has been damaged by fire, the first 24 to 48 hours are known as the “golden hours” of recovery. During this time, our rapid response team will work to quickly stabilize the property  — regardless of the day or hour. We regularly work closely with local fire departments, and our rapid response teams are called in to help with the fire damage efforts once the fire has been extinguished.

Waiting too long can allow the smoke damage and acidic soot — that is produced as fires are extinguished — to accelerate the corrosion and deterioration of the building and its important components. To make these matters even worse, most fires are extinguished with water or dry chemicals and the toxic odor of smoke left behind must be first neutralized and then deodorized.

The best course of action is to contact UpRite Plus 2 as quickly as possible. It's never too early or late to contact us, so we can begin the fire remediation and restoration process on your property. Our goal is to get you back to normal as quickly as possible.
