Morristown Properties Require Special Soot and Smoke Cleaning after a House Fire

It is common for homeowners to experience a house fire during their period of ownership. Unattended furnaces, stoves, naked flames, or electrical appliances can be the root cause of ignition, but belongings and structures often act as the fuel. When these materials combust or catch fire, they can release chemicals into an indoor environment. Most harmful chemicals such as monoxide usually pass within an hour, but waiting for an all-clear from a fire marshall before re-entering the property is essential. Most residents rely on professional services to help with:

  • Smoke damages
  • Carpet cleaning 
  • Fire damage restoration

The actions taken by a qualified fire damage restoration professional in Morristown can often mitigate long-term losses and return belongings to a pre-incident condition. One of the core methods used for removing smoke is the use of a chemical suspension. Chemical suspension involves applying an appropriate cleaning solvent and allowing enough dwell time for the smoke particles to suspend in the solvent solution. A rinsing agent can then be applied directly onto the wall surface to remove the solvent and any soiling. 

  • Cleaning smoke residues from walls can also arrest unpleasant odors that may exist after a property fire. 
  • Solvents or other suspension chemicals must be applied correctly depending on the type of smoke- categorized as wet or dry. 
  • Material construction and smoke type hold the strongest influence on whether technicians use an oil or water-based solvent. 

Fire cleaning can be a tricky and time-consuming process. Contact SERVPRO of Hamblen County for fire damage restoration assistance at (423) 318-6733.
