SERVPRO’s Fire Restoration Efforts Help Remove Foul Odors from Smoke and Soot Within Your Lenoir City Home

Any fire leaves behind damage and foul odors, but kitchen fires often create a unique situation. When certain food items burn in a kitchen fire, such as eggs, meats, and other products containing protein, they put out protein residue. This substance quickly adheres to all surfaces, including walls, ceilings, cabinets, and out onto other surfaces in areas such as your adjoining spaces. Because removal of this slippery residue can be challenging, calling in the help of trained restoration professionals to your Lenoir City property is best.

Smoke Traveled into My Dining Room, What About My Belongings?

When you call us for fire restoration in Lenoir City, we take the time to address all items and areas affected by smoke and soot. Some of the steps that we take to ensure your property gets handled in detail includes:

  •   Removal – Our technicians will find and then remove any sources of smoke and soot. This includes bringing charred items off site for disposal, yet cleaning and restoring whatever possible.
  •   Cleaning – For residue that is not yet absorbed, our crew uses dry cleaning methods. For absorbed residues that call for a deeper clean, we use wet cleaning methods with our range of industrial-grade solvents.
  •   Odor Neutralization – To ensure that no odors linger after the removal and cleaning steps, our team utilizes various smell neutralizing techniques. We have odor-absorbing beads, as well as thermal fogging technology that works by putting out a fine mist that binds with smoke particles for easy removal. 

Due to the challenges involved with a kitchen fire and stubborn protein residue, professional assistance with fire restoration is critical. Call us at SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties (865) 986-3015, and we can deploy a crew 24/7 for emergency service.
