SERVPRO Techs Bring Experience and Comprehensive Training for Fire Damage Cleanup in Sparta

Sparta is a unique place in the State of Tennessee. It was once in the running to be the state capital but lost out to Nashville by a single vote. Although the town has under 5,000 residents, it boasts seven sites that have a listing in the National Register of Historic Places. One of the most notable is a small, unassuming structure known as the Rock House, constructed 1835. Originally it was a stop along the stagecoach line. Several famous names stayed at this location, including former Presidents Andrew Jackson and James K. Polk.

Blue Spring Cave

The longest mapped cave in Tennessee is located just outside Sparta and named the Blue Spring Cave. Researchers recorded a total of 38 miles of passages within the cave's network, and the scientists also discovered footprints left behind by now-extinct Pleistocene (Ice Age) jaguars. Specific paths in the cave are flooded, and links to air-filled passages have not yet gotten identified.

Founding of Bluegrass

The city of Sparta is the home of the bluegrass sound that Tennessee is known for. The difference between country music and bluegrass is the bluegrass style relies mostly on stringed instruments. This style of music has some specific techniques:

  • Higher pitches
  • Close-knit harmonies
  • Heavy reliance on guitars, banjos, and violins to drive the sound

Notable People Who Called Sparta Home

Sparta has spawned a large selection of notable people for a small town, including many bluegrass musicians such as Lester Flatt, Benny Martin, inventor of the eight-string fiddle, and Earl Scruggs.

Why is Professional Fire Restoration Better in Sparta Homes?

Fire restoration services in Sparta do not have a single solution. There are different types of residues and an infinite number of surfaces they can upon, and that is just two of the factors that determine the cleaning methods the SERVPRO technicians choose. The techs have to be diligent in determining the construction materials as selecting an incorrect restoration method can cause issues such as:

  • Marring of surfaces
  • Driving soot into objects
  • Causing dyes to bleed
  • Wet cleaning leading to shrinkage of textiles

SERVPRO technicians have multiple types of testing, so they do not rely on a single result to ascertain the best cleaning method for soot and smoke damage removal. Another consideration is the type of smoke damage left behind. Dry and wet smoke have specific needs, and intensely pungent protein residues require special handling. They are nearly invisible and can spread rapidly, landing on everything in the vicinity from floor to ceiling.

After removing charred items, cleaning of restorable articles, odor control treatments usually are needed to neutralize any remaining smoke odors. SERVPRO technicians have multiple applications. Some require the evacuation of the home, and others, such as the hydroxyl generator, get rid of airborne odors and are safe for use around people, plants, and pets.
