Comprehensive Fire Damage Restoration Services In Crossville
Smoke and Odor Removal Are Critical Components of Fire Restoration
When a fire breaks out in your house, the damage left behind can be overwhelming. The key to regaining control at this difficult time is finding a fire damage restoration service that assesses the situation and then plans and implements all tasks using well-trained crews who possess the experience to handle all aspects of the multifaceted job.
A bag of oily rags in your workroom spread black, thick smoke everywhere, the resulting fire damage in your Crossville home is far beyond your ability to clean up and restore. The soot and debris coat surfaces far away from the room where the fire started, and an oppressive, smoky smell pervades every area of your house. Our fire damage workforce trained to the standards enunciated by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. Rest assured we can complete all necessary tasks using industry best practices, focusing on restoration techniques that leave your dwelling looking and feeling “Like it never even happened.”
After your call, one of our SERVPRO project managers or an MSR meets with you at your home. After a comprehensive evaluation of your needs, the manager devises a detailed work plan that guides our technicians step by step through the restoration process. If water damage is present, common in fire damage scenarios, that is typically handled first. Then our crew meticulously cleans up the sticky and difficult to remove soot covering surfaces.
An oily rag fire smolders, creating thick black smoke that adheres to everything. We have protocols in place for every type of surface affected -- vacuuming and dusting for light soot, spray and wipe for heavier deposits, and aggressive scrubbing with abrasives for the toughest coatings. Immersion cleaning and ultrasonic technology are available for appropriate items. Our team knows how to use these techniques to get the soot out without damaging structure or possessions.
One of the most challenging things to eliminate when responding to a fire damage event can be an odor. SERVPRO uses a variety of techniques to remove the acrid stench of this type of fire. First, we discard the rags. Then we try other techniques from cleaning and sealing areas to finding and destroying airborne odor molecules with sprays. Thermal fogging recreates the heat of the fire, combusting deodorizing chemicals which then attach to tiny odor particles and change their chemical composition, neutralizing their sensory effect. We also invested in hydroxyl machines and ozone generators, cutting edge technology that removes even the most persistent smells.
