Fires can be a devastating force for the homes of our more than 11,000 residents but can be equally destructive for large commercial properties like the Hackensack University Medical Center complex. When these disasters strike, hundreds of people could be affected simultaneously. We have a fast response to offer mitigation assistance when every minute counts.
Emergency Services Mitigate Fire Loss in Westwood Homes
Mitigating fire disasters involves slowing the spread of damaging post-fire effects and preventing permanent damage to exposed building materials and contents. Our experienced SERVPRO team's first steps can often make the difference in how long restoration takes and how costly it becomes. Some of the mitigation tactics our team employs include:
- Debris removal
- Air filtration
- Soot removal
- Water removal
- Content relocation
Clearing Soot and Smoke Residues from Westwood Residences
Soot and smoke residues are a common discovery after partial combustion concerns. Emulsification and dissolving with solvents and alkaline cleaners allows wet cleaning solutions to work on many surfaces. Dry cleaning can also occur on certain materials with chemical sponges.
How Do Smoke Odors Get Removed from Westwood Properties?
Removing fire debris and cleaning surfaces can help reduce the presence of harsh odors after a fire. When the time comes to eliminate these smells permanently, SERVPRO professionals lean on deodorization tools like our thermal foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators.

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)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
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.
