PA School Fire Restoration


Welcome Back to School!

Mellon Certified Restoration has school open for Day 1!

 

Interboro School District located in Essington, Delaware County, PA

On Tuesday, July 19th, 2016 Mellon Certified Restoration was dispatched to the Tinicum School in the Interboro School District located in Essington, Delaware County, PA. The school suffered a fire that completely destroyed the home economics classroom.

 

Due to the fire, there was heavy smoke damage throughout a very large portion of the school and the home economics room was a complete loss.

Interboro School District located in Essington, Delaware County, PAAfter evaluating the loss, MCR executed a precise plan of action. Immediately, MCR employees along with our subcontractors were called in to get the job started. These workers spent long hours and weekends at the school to make sure that our goal of having the school ready for the first day was achieved.

 

 

During the restoration process, each classroom required soot removal which meant that every book, desk, chair and learning tool had to be cleaned one by one by our restoration staff. Every aspect of the school had to be cleansed – floors, ceiling tile, duct work, electronics, and windows.
Everything!

The major transformation took place in the home economics classroom which was the origin of the fire. Everything from the floor to the ceiling was restored with new appliances, sinks, countertops, sewing machines and white boards. Chris Maluchnik, MCR Corporate Emergency Service Manager, was the project manager on this job.

 

A letter was received from the Interboro School District commending his hard work and dedication. George Wolhafe stated “Chris always kept us up to date with information. More importantly, he understood the urgency of ensuring school would open on time. Chris cared for our school as it was his own.”
