When fire losses occur, you need prompt and reliable responses from knowledgeable professionals that can help.

Fire Damage Cleanup in Downtown Knoxville Homes 

Cleaning up after fire loss events can often involve multiple stages and actions taken by our technicians. Returning your home to preloss condition means much more than overcoming heaps of debris and ash on the floors of the property. Soot and smoke residues settle on surfaces and contents and require removal to protect these underlying materials. There are multiple strategies for eliminating soot, some of which include: 

  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Emulsification with solvents 
  • Dissolving with detergents
  • Controlled demolition 

Fire and Smoke Odor Removal for Downtown Knoxville 

One of the universal needs for homes and businesses after fire losses is odor removal. As widespread as these threats can become, we have multiple deodorization tactics and counteractant products to lessen the severity of noxious smells. When manageable and accessible, we can utilize various odor removing devices such as foggers, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
