SERVPRO Understand How a House Fire Can Put Long-term Stress on your Morristown Home

Along the sides of the Cherokee Reservoir is Morristown. The small city connects with nearby Jefferson County on both the West and South but retains its position as the Morristown metropolitan area. The region is home to early-modern national hero Davy Crockett who worked as a soldier, frontiersman, and US politician during the early formation of the United States in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. One of the earliest records of commerce in the area is a tavern that was first opened by Davy Crockett in 1794 and is currently the Crockett Tavern Museum's home, which sits on the same site.

Morristown was a key battleground during the American Civil War, with a divided populace aligning with either Unionists or secessionists. For much of the war, Morristown was a temporary base of operations for the Confederate army. However, in 1864 the 'battle of Morristown' was won by unionists forcing the Confederates back onto the Watauga River. Morristown was again at the heart of civil unrest in the twentieth century during the American Enka and Labor movement in 1950 when a strike led to a call-in of the national guard. By 1959, an 'industrial development initiative' grew the infrastructure and economy of Morristown into today's city.

  • Panther Creek is part of Tennessee State Park upkeep and sits along the Cherokee reservoir. The vast natural expanse features camping grounds, picnic facilities, and washrooms. There are several beginners and intermediate hikes available that lead up to the nearby reservoir.
  • College Square Mall, located on East Morris Boulevard, is an example of recent urban redevelopment that has sought to revitalize the region. The large mall features fifty unique shops as well as dining areas and entertainment.
  • Crockett Tavern Museum on Morningside Drive is a faithful recreation of the home lived in by local hero Davy Crockett. Despite its relatively small size, the local history tours and surrounding grounds are well worth the visit.

SERVPRO Conducts Expert Fire Damage Restoration for Morristown Residents

When materials in your home catch fire, they release unpleasant smoke and odor into the property. Unfortunately, smoke can travel quickly through the home even when the fire is localized and contained in one room. SERVPRO has the expertise and equipment to help you overcome a fire issue.

One of the pieces of equipment we use in fire damage restoration for Morristown residents is air-filtration devices. Smoke can adversely affect indoor air quality. Using an air filtration device (AFD), technicians can filter out potential carcinogens, dust, soot, smoke, and odor particles during a restoration.

  • AFD equipment incorporates high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) technology.
  • HEPA uses three layers of filters to remove even microscopic particles from indoor air.
  • H14 equipment that is common on HEPA filters is considered medical-grade air purification.

Return your indoor air quality to its normal state. Contact SERVPRO of Hamblen County for fire damage restoration at (423) 318-6733.
