NANUET, N.Y., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- One of New York City's most crucial DEP facilities is undergoing comprehensive fire damage restoration including smoke cleanup and soot remediation after a recent blaze tore through their building. The New York DEP facility, responsible for one of the city's most critical resources, is expertly navigating a major fire cleanup thanks to Total Environmental Restoration Services (TERS), New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut's leading environmental remediation experts in fire damage, flood and water cleanup, and sewage leak cleanup.
"The DEP fire demanded a full-scale environmental initiative extending far beyond fire loss prevention and soot and smoke damage. This was a severe indoor air quality disaster," said TERS Environmental Analyst, Gary (Gadi) Shaked. "Our in-house remediation experts and engineers responded immediately and worked around the clock to allow this DEP facility to safely maintain its support of city residents and businesses."
Severe fire damage to machinery, electrical equipment, computers, and document storage systems was involved. TERS remediation experts are routinely trained and primed to handle multi-level projects of this magnitude and urgency.
"We treat all customers with the same level of quality and rapid response, but when millions of New York City residents are depending on the resources of a facility, that's when we shine," Shaked assured. "We have the specialists, the equipment, and the 20-year expertise to handle every component of building and equipment damage and air quality restoration."
TERS is guiding DEP officials through all aspects of the project, which began with Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring to mitigate potential health risks. "You cannot achieve complete restoration with just the removal of fire-damaged building materials and a meticulous removal of smoke and soot residue," stressed Shaked. "Compliant and safe fire cleanup must include air quality testing and treatment."
Clearly an environmentally-centric agency, the DEP chose TERS for their 100% reliance on uniquely "green" restoration methods. TERS uses only environmentally sound decontamination processes to clean soot, purify the air, and remove odors. Harsh, toxic chemicals are never introduced to a job site. Deodorization occurs at the source air quality issues and is never designed to mask odors. "We're pleased to support the DEP and we recognize the honor of being chosen as a respected environmental restoration company by the DEP," said Shaked.
TERS works with government bodies and businesses to preemptively design building damage and environmental disaster remediation plans. Their no-cost T-911 disaster recovery service arms business leaders and government officials with industry-compliant action plans to speed remediation, mitigate loss, and ensure employee safety.
