Harriman, TN Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Because of our proximity to the Emory River and other major water bodies, Harriman homes experience fire losses with higher humidity than many other areas of the country. This can often result in many of these structures contending with thick, wet smoke that can be challenging to clean and remove without industrial-grade cleansers and experienced restoration technicians. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to fire losses to reduce these conditions' severity and promote a safer work environment for restoration.

What is Fire Mitigation for Harriman Homes? 

The initial steps our technicians take to manage loss effects spreading in a fire-damaged home can reduce out-of-pocket expenses and irreparable damage. Much of these first actions focus on making the work site safer for responding technicians and occupants of the house if they are not displaced. Air filtration practices with HEPA products remove many circulating contaminants and carcinogens down to 0.3 microns in size. Other emergency services and mitigative actions we undertake include:  

  • Content relocation
  • Water removal
  • Controlled demolition 
  • Debris removal 
  • Content cleaning

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 determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

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.
