What Fire Debris Cleaning Entails for Lenoir City Homes 

Debris cleanup after a Lenoir City structure fire is often the responsibility of the property owner, though most insurance policies offer some degree of coverage for this task. Often it is easier to rely on the expertise and experience of professional restorers to oversee this cleanup and recovery, as the right tools and techniques can prevent further loss and damage to your house. 

While fire debris cleanup for Lenoir City homes might be a necessary step when disasters occur, many homeowners do not know what to expect. Professionals like our SERVPRO team must approach debris and rubbish removal from a household in phases, all of which fall under the emergency services your home requires before even full mitigation work can begin. Knowing what to expect from our team and even our in-house general contractors can showcase the importance of these tasks.

Ash and Rubble  

Some homeowners might take the term debris removal literally, and rightfully so. A significant portion of these actions involves the shoveling out and disposal of half-burned remnants of construction materials, contents that experienced a total loss, and ash. We can work quickly to remove these piles of dust, debris, and charred remains as these can continue to be a catalyst for odors and other airborne threats. A dumpster may be rented to contain the removed fire-damaged materials and contents from the home.  

Vacuuming Sediment and Residue 

Clearing off surfaces and contents in the affected areas of your home is also a vital element to the initial mitigation approach your property needs. We use dry vacuuming to address heaps of soot and smoke particles that come to rest on surfaces and materials. Dry vacuuming is one of the agitative cleaning practices that can safely reduce residues without damaging the surface beneath them. The focused removal of these threats can limit erosion of construction materials and potential marring of contents. 

Controlled Demolition and Cleaning 

Post demolition cleanup is another element to debris removal, as much of this controlled demolition must happen before our SERVPRO team can begin mitigation. We work closely with reputable contractors in the area to ensure that we can transition seamlessly between this demolition and the cleaning and restoration work yet to begin. 

Fire damages might pose a threat to your home, but our SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties team can help with effective and efficient debris removal and recovery. Contact us anytime at (865) 986-3015.
