Fast and Efficient Fire Damage Restoration Services

Everyday living requires the use of multiple electrical appliances. Some are larger than others while others are handheld and even portable. Your Rocky Hill apartment most likely holds several examples of both sizes. Any appliance, regardless of size or function, can develop problems with frayed cords or pinched wiring.

In the Rocky Hill area, fire damage can come from problems with wiring or cords that become overheated or come into direct contact with materials that ignite when exposed to bare wires. Checking your appliances on a regular basis can prevent this situation. At SERVPRO, we understand that every home contains several appliances but cannot stress enough the importance of such maintenance.

After appliance-created fire damage affects your apartment, we can mitigate the problem quickly and efficiently. SERVPRO technicians earn and retain certificates from the IICRC in Fire and Smoke Restoration (FSRT), enabling them to carry out the required work. When water from the fire department remains behind, saturating your walls and floors, our extensive equipment can handle this aspect, as well.

Because fire and smoke create noxious odors from the soot, removing as much as possible can reduce smells significantly. This is crucial with shared central air or heating systems between apartment units in the same building. Otherwise, your neighbors may experience problems with soot particles that flow into their dwellings, impacting their air quality for months. Because timely responses can minimize this situation, mitigation should begin immediately after any size fire.

Even in small fires that never required the fire department's response, smoke can travel far and wide. We have the equipment and measuring devices to detect where smoke went, and can then clean it up, eliminating the problem before it can spread. Fire does not need to be large to require professional clean up services.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville is always ready to help with fire damage mitigation, no matter the severity. Cleaning up soot and smoke deposits protects your health and that of others around you. Our local number is answered 24/7 by professionals who can provide the assistance you need. Contact us at (865) 862-8907 any day of the year to make sure your apartment receives the attention it needs.
