Are You Looking for Fire Damage Restoration in Morristown?
SERVPRO is here to help after a fire
Morristown is a small and friendly city of 30,193 in Tennessee. Morristown is a manufacturing hub, with several large employers having bases here. There are over 100 manufacturers in the town, producing everything from food to aerospace parts.
Morrison got its name from its founder, Gideon Morris. By 1855 Morristown was an incorporated city, and it became the seat of Hamblen County in 1870. It is no wonder Morristown makes a delightful place to live or visit with such a long history. The vibrant modern business community exists arm in arm with multiple historical sites and striking historic buildings.
Morristown's most famous son
Davy Crockett is arguably Morristown's most famous son. David Crockett was born in 1786 and lived in Morristown for at least some of his life. Crockett is one of American's most popular folk heroes, known by the name "King of the Wild Frontier." During his life, Crockett had a reputation for hunting and storytelling, later for opposing President Andrew Jackson's policies and his involvement in the Texas Revolution. Crockett died at the Alamo. When you visit Morristown, you can see the Crockett Tavern History Museum. The tavern is a replica log building on the site where Davy Crockett's father, John Crockett, established a tavern in 1794.
Arts and culture abound in Morristown
As well as a long and exciting history, Morristown boasts many arts and culture sites and events. When you are in town, be sure to check out:
- Panther Creek State Park, on the shore of Cherokee Lake. Families will love the playgrounds, and there are plenty of opportunities for hiking, fishing, camping, horseback riding, kayaking, and more. The park has over fifty well-appointed campsites with water, electricity, and fire rings.
- Morristown Main Street Historic District is the city's main shopping area and includes several buildings of historical interest, such as the Henry Street Station Post Office.
- Bethesda Presbyterian Church is a historic building that served as a hospital during the American Civil War. The church congregation was notably split by the Civil War, with both sides unable to reconcile their differences. As a result, there were no church services during the conflict, and afterward, the congregation was divided, with each side taking its own half of the church and not talking to the others.
Morristown also hosts several festivals throughout the year, including a strawberry festival, a beer festival, and the Mountain Makins Festival for arts and crafts.
Is it possible to restore wooden buildings after a fire?
Wood provides fuel for a fire, and so structures like Crockett's Tavern are in particular danger from a blaze. However, if the building survives the fire, it is certainly possible to restore it. SERVPRO trains its staff in every aspect of fire damage restoration, including the best ways to restore each kind of building material.
After a fire, wooden walls and beams may be smoke damaged. Please do not try to clean away the soot yourself, as soot can easily smear and create more stains. However, SERVPRO has all the right equipment to deal with soot damage:
- Powerful HEPA vacuums to suck up loose, powdery soot.
- Air scrubbers to capture soot particles and prevent them from re-entering the atmosphere.
- Soda blasters that use gentle media such as baking soda to scrub sooty beams.
We can also deodorize the building once it is clean to leave it smelling fresh.
